The discussion of the Alien series of films and the props used in them is the aim, but if it's got Big Bugs and Big Guns, then they are welcome too!

 Post subject: Looking for image of Emergency Destruct System

I'm looking for an image of the Nostromo's Emergency Destruct System. There are several out there, but there is one in particular that's different than the others I've seen: https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/avp/images/0/0b/Nostromo_Self_Destruct.png/revision/latest?cb=20130513094353

The text includes includes phrases like "Warning: Destruct System Will Not Engage Unless Safety Interlocks Engaged." I'm not even sure it comes from the original movie.

Any idea where this image comes from? I'd like to find a higher-resolution graphic.

I do believe that image was used in the movie on the underside of the lid that poops open from the floor when Ripley pulls down the handles from the wall.

No, there seem to be two versions of the panel. Look at the poster for sale on Redbubble (https://www.redbubble.com/people/bluedo ... =shop_grid). The text is different than https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/avp ... 0513094353

Here you go:

Back in 2003, I did a map for the Nostromo in Unreal Tournament, and made a high-rez texture-map of the self-destruct panel. I've been going through my files from back in '03 and can't find anything except the PCX file, not the master PSD file, sadly.

Here's one that somebody else made (so not sure about permissions for usage), in a higher resolution:
