Nice Post Chris....
I would say that as far as boundaries of Science that indeed LV426 is too small to have such strong gravity, it would more likely be closer to our own moon.
But there is real potential for life out there, and Kepler space telescope has found many thousands of potential worlds that could fit within the ideal properties to be Earth Like, as in Type of Star, Distance to Star and having a Satellite (Moon).
But then its overlooking the obvious and that is while we look at the many rocky planets out their for potential to support life, it would actually be the many more moons that would actually be more ideal to support life.
There are Moons in our own solar System that if they was the distance of Earth away from the Sun would certainly be ideal candidates for life to thrive, maybe they may not have natural life on them as we cant prove it, but certainly if they was as close as Earth there would be some lifeforms on Earth that should be able to thrive on those few moons.
As far as LV 426 and LV 223 being the same Planets Satellites i am not so sure, as Calpamos has 3 moons in Alien, but does the Planet in Prometheus not have 4?
And also its a bit odd to designate a LV 4 and 2 to a planet that has 3 moons, unless of course its like this.... LV 126 = Calpamos and LV 223 = the closest or largest moon, with LV 426 being the 3rd and thus the other moon being LV 326.
Then again could it not designate that LV2** and LV 4** are indeed separate Planets and their moons, just be like saying Saturn is LV 406 and Jupiter LV 203 with the moons being LV 426, 436 etc?
Oh i would add maybe another thing as far as LV 223 and 426 and distances would be...
1) Surely The Nostromo would have picked up Shaws Signal? or indeed the colonization of LV 426 would have detected such Signals from LV 223 if it was so close. And like wise Prometheus would have detected the Derelict Signal.
Then again maybe David and some Corp suits would known about such things and kept them hidden for their own Agendas.
2) Ridley did say that the Derelict crashed while it was either going too or from LV 223 with a Cargo of Eggs, the Pilot got infected and knew what was to come and so set a nearest course to Quarantine the Cargo on the closest Baron Moon it could find.
Judging the Speeds the Juggernauts must be able to Travel, from the time the Engineer/Space Jockey got to get infected with the Cargo, from when he had taken off to then when he awoke from being Face Hugged and set a new course. Would this total time lapsed and speed of travel rule out the planets being around the same Planet?
I am not sure if their is any confirmation that both are around the same Gas Giant or even same Star System, maybe one is in Zeta 1 and the other Zeta 2?
I noticed another thing, in Alien and Aliens LV 426 seemed to be stuck in perpetual darkness.
In Prometheus most of the movie was in Light, and while this could be that the scenes in Prometheus was mainly shot at day time as the crew avoid exploration at night due to lack of light and colder weather.... in Alien and Aliens i get the idea the world is much more dark.
Maybe this means that the Moons are from different planetary systems?
You see we get light on Earth, and Mars has light but if both planets where the distance of say Neptune then they would have little or no day light as they would be too far from the Sun.
Maybe if they are in the same system (LV 223 and 426) Maybe the LV 2 could be the second closest Planet to the Sun and LV 4 the 4th and the distances could be vast, if we say take away Mercury, Mars and Jupiter then Earth would be 2nd closest planet to our Sun and Uranus then the 4th. And any moon around Uranus would be vastly more darker place than our moon.
I also got the impression that LV 223 was not a very baron place, indeed the Engineer could survive outside for some period of time, and it appeared to be a less inhospitable place than LV 426 which looked baron, and i guess thats why the Space Jockey decided to choose that as a destination to Quarantine the Cargo.
