In terms of science fiction convention, the hollow aspect is an excellent bit of plot development.

Millburn the biologist (the one without the cockney accent)
By way of explanation.....
We were worried you couldn't differentiate between Fifield and Millburn so we added the accent part to be safe. Never trust a geologist with death on the line.

David infects her immediately after Charlie.
Meredith infects her while David poisons Charlie.
Regrettably, Elizabeth has sex with Charlie right after he is infected.

Poor David gets decapitated then his head is used as the deathblow against his "father", Peter Weyland.
25. Why does Janek drive his ship into the Engineer's spacecraft?
The Engineer intends to launch the black liquid into Earth's atmosphere.
Janek calmly states, "No survivors."

Never drink and drive a space ship, kids.
By way of explanation.....
The Engineer's base is revealed to be a military installation so the ship must be prevented from launching an attack.
