In Prometheus, after figuring something bad is going on within her, Shaw goes to the medpod which earlier in the movie was described as "configured for male body" by Vickers .
If that is the case then isn't there some sort of inconsistency here?
The procedure seemed pretty much like a simple cesarean, which wouldn't be included in a configuration setting made for male-use.
Then again, Shaw might've commanded it to remove anomalies or things that shouldn't be there which would make sense for a medpod to have as an option even if it is configured for male use since it can be used to remove tumors or appendicitis for example. But if that is the case, why doesn't it remove all of her uterus as well but rather only the monster within the uterus.
I am also considering the option that she might've overridden the configuration, but it is really a long shot for lots of reasons like:
Basic programming wants to represent the front end the way device is meant to be used and not hacked to do something else.
She is not a programmer.
If it can be overridden to do every operation in seconds by pushing two buttons, then it really isn't configured for male-only use.
She is scared, in panic and shocked. She probably wouldn't be able to do it that easily and that quickly.
There is another possibility, that it is not configured for male use at all in the first place. But why would Vickers lie about it at all?
