    Hey,

    I thought I'd round-up the biggest questions I still had after watching Covenant. I've seen the film twice now, and did our review. It's proved to be as divisive as I thought it was going to be, but regardless, we've all had fun debating and discussing it in the office this week.

    Here are the biggest unresolved questions and I've woven in some fan theories as to how things might connect with Alien (1979). If you've got any of your own theories, I'd love to hear them, so leave them in the comments below.

    Cheers,

      The guy that gets attacked by a facehugger but "escapes" with half his face melted off was carrying it. Even in the brief struggle he was impreganated (if thats the right word) and it bursts out of him on the Covenant.

      Exactly, nobody really knows, although the audience knows more than anyone in the movies.  Shaw asked David to take her to where the Tall Humanoids (NOT the Real Engineers, I think) came from that went to LV-223.  That's not necessarily the same as even THEIR home planet, let alone the Real Engineers' home planet.

    And people STILL FORGET about the Xenomorph in the MURAL in PROMETHEUS...COVENANT is garbage, a cash grab for the ALIEN franchise fans. Scott is turning to be like Michael Bay and HIS storytelling. No congruence, doesn't follow up and just shrinks the universe to have HUMANS be the damned center of everything. The Alien lost all of its mystery on this BS about being created by David, instead of being what the creator actually intended it to be: ALIEN. The same thing can be said about the "Engineers" stupid tall albino body builders, smh...the Co Creator of ALIEN Ronald Shusett whom is still alive obviously isn't happy and Co Creator Dan O'Bannon must be doing back flips in his grave.

    If you read the book version of original Alien you will know that Xenomorphs are capable of reproducing even without the queen. The queen only makes it more efficient, a single ordinary Xenomorph could not lay that many eggs.

    (not sure how canonic the Alien novel is)

    @IGN Interesting Video... I still have yet to see Covenant, but so far more or less every possible way I have see of the story moving forwards to tie in... You have pretty much covered!

    My only real Question is WHY MAKE THIS VIDEO? Seriously - Are movie audioences now so DUMB that they have NO IMAGINATION?

    Its literally become so bad that if not every single Answer is given to an Audience people are screaming 'PLOT HOLE' or 'WTF!?'

    The Studio have already said there will be TWO MORE MOVIES! If they complete teh story in Covenant - The next two films will be BORING AS ALL BLOODY HELL!

    Covenant= an insult to intelligence from the beginning! Franco burns up in the cryo sleep chamber (no Loss) and the rest of the crew are going to climb in their's without finding the cause!? Moronic! What crew landing on a unknown planet would walk out unprotected against possible pathogens they have no immunity to. Just because the atmosphere is breathable? Stupid lazy writing. Crew points out No evidence of wildlife, alive or dead, on a planet that obviously evolved like our own earth -an impossible occurrence without animals to pollinate, fertilize and without a food chain in place. Did David kill them along with the so called "Engineers", if so why no corpses like the "Engineers" Lazy stupid writing. Despicable crew, especially the douche smoking a cigarette that flicks it away with disrespect to the planet, humans still smoke that far into the future? Implausible, stupid and how did the guy pass muster in the first place. No tension in the end, or horror like the preceding films, no character development, didn't care for any of them.The stupid ugly dirty cheap hat (what a joke) on the male survivor had more character then all of them put together I could go on but my point is Scott insults our intelligence by asking us to not notice or simply not care for the sake of Scott's narrative. I don't care what's coming next in the franchise. Covenant ruined any excitement and anticipation I had. I hope Scott leaves anything further to others.Alien will always be my favorite horror film and imo one of Mr. Scott's greatest work, Blade Runner not withstanding And I'm one of the fans who enjoyed Prometheus also. Lazy, insulting. The Casting Director missed on all accounts and I want my bucks back. Hate being so negative about something I love but, gotta be real with myself.

    I liked the movie, but the crew's stupidity was laughable! For example, when the pilot accidentally shoots up the ship causing it to explode, or the other crew member who says , "well, I'm going to go clean up", and of course, you know she's next on the alien menu or how the crew is walking around with no mask to protect them from the alien virus and it goes in his ear and next thing you know it, its exploding out of his body! We screamed and laughed at most the scary scenes. Michael F was great as usual.

    In the beginning of Prometheus when the engineer drank the goo and fell into the water. This is where David is.. he's not wiping out the engineers, He's destorying the life they created. Engineers were 9 feet tall and white, These people are normal sized and pale.. Why aren't people getting this?!?!

  • Ethn_da_Ninja

    My biggest question is why did they not use more classic alien weapons like the flamethrower or proto-pulse rifles? The modern weapons don't look cool and futuristic and also don't have a recognizable quality like the pulse rifle.

    What part of the classic Xenomorphs "biomechanical"? I don't see the "mechanical" parts.

  • jsm666
    jsm666 18 days ago

    2:55 The novelisation by Alan Dean Foster appears to have David state that he merely found the Facehugger as an engineer curio rather than created it himself from scratch. So while the xenomorph as seen in _Covenant_ - rapidly emerging, rapidly evolving - is definitely his beast, the species as a whole may not be. I haven't had an opportunity to see the film - I understand this brief throwaway implication didn't make it in - so we'll see what film canon as opposed to official novelisation canon has to say on the matter in my perception.

    While not everyone will agree, I tend to go with the novelisations as the ultimate authority, personally - they include all sorts of little snippets that get cut from the film due to pacing and run-time concerns, but which might later appear in a director's cut or deleted-scenes collection (Cf the bits in Aliens about Ripley's daughter dying while she was in hypersleep plus the bit with the remote sentry cannons).

    If this turns out to be correct (or if Scott does an about-face and decides to run with it), then the Space Jockey is indeed potentially a separate beast - perhaps an Engineer sent out long ago to carry or retrieve Facehugger eggs and who fell afoul of his cargo. Or maybe the Engineers are no more than the Space Jockeys' inheritors, modelling their flight suits after the SJ form... We shall see.

    I feel this line of thinking addresses many of your questions.

  • ReNoVaTiO

    1. It was just a colony planet! NOT their homeworld. This has already been teased from Ridley.
    2. Simply put he wants to be a GOD to create his own species to perfection. There is a beautiful yet very disturbing line at the opening of the film which I really love!
    David: Allow me then a moment to consider. You seek you´re creator. I am looking at mine. I will serve you, yet you are human.
    You will die, I will not.
    Weyland: Bring me the tea David...
    This suggests already Davids curiosity about life and death mortality and immortality.
    3. The alien queen will prob be Daniels in the next film on planet oreagau 6. THAT planet will be the first ALIEN planet the first planet that the Xenomoprhs will be born on and the queen will come to life/created. She will prob end up destroying David.
    4. Eggs on LV-426 will be explained in alien awakening the next film.
    5. again a question for the next film. but ALL the engineers are NOT dead. I mean think about it david only destroyed a TOWN on a planet and thats just for starters.
    6. um......Cause it´s not the same...... ALL xenomorphs are different do your homework. haha

  • Joey Ortiz

    While I haven't seen all of the comments, all I have seen so for is how everybody seems to overlook Weyland Co. Weyland Yutany and later in the series Earth's Government's collective intelligence and in every film in the series no one sees "The Company's" motives until its too late. In Alien Covenant Weyland Yutani's involment in the events of AC aren't all that clear until the end when David demonstrates that he still has Company over clearance over Mother on the Covenant. He also Walter's clearances and the idea of David could have somehow taken those clearances from Walter in the final unseen conflict of the two is far fetched for the lack of time in the scene to do so. I surmised that Walter was created in the image of David with his own protocols for the purpose of extracting David and his creations off of Planet 4 in the first place. While we can see that David now has a mind of his own we can't negate the fact the he is a Company Android with programming the he cannot override by virtue of his own will.
    1)The Company records everything that happens on every mission that they deploy so everything that happened on the Prometheus mission up until the destruction of the ship Prometheus was recorded and sent back to the Company and it only would have taken one year for the Company to receive the full transmission. The final transmission of the Prometheus mission sent by Dr. Elizabeth Shaw however was not sent by any company technology being that the ship Prometheus was totally destroyed. So how did Dr. Shaw send her final transmission? Obviously from the Hammerhead ship the She and David commandeered at the end of Prometheus. Ergo Engineer technology is not flawed, if anything Engineer technology is way more advance than that of Humans. Engineers technology we learn in Prometheus is not beyond David's understanding as we can see how quickly David is able to understand and operate them. So we can presume that David just like Shaw is capable of communicating with the Company on Earth by way of Engineers technology.
    2) The Covenant mission was a rouse from the beginning. If David can maintain communication with the Company and tell them about his pet project than it is a safe bet that like always the Company wants that life form for means to study it and use it for bio-weapons.
    3) The path to Origae 6 led the the Covenant to directly intersect with Planet 4 with an unexplained event that haults them at threshold of Planet 4. Now if Planet 4 is a more habitable Planet than Origae 6 that was closer to Earth and on the path to Origae 6 the Company knew about and kept that knowledge off of there records, Especially if they have communication with David about his Project on Planet 4, a project they they would ruthlessly do anything to attain. "Building better Worlds" may be Weyland Co's public slogan but we all know that "Crew Expendable" has always been their secret motto.
    4) The Nutrino blast was not a random natural occurance. The Covenant's new Captain wanted to investigate the the blast but Walter convinced him that it was a natural blast that could not have been forseen or avoided and so the Captain let it go and continued on. Nobody is aware of the Engineers or the very power of their advanced technologies here so it not without reason that their technology can simulate a Nutrino blast that only mames The Covenant ship, haulting it and only bringing its system down by 30%. Again David know much to well how to use that technology and probably saw the Covenant ship coming as he was expecting it to come.
    5) The plan from the start was for David to continue his research and The Company gave him more than precisely what he needed to do that. 2,000 sleeping colonists, hundreds of human ebrios, an infirior twin android and a still very active security clearance with company protocols. David demonstrated at the end of the film that his own security clearance with Mother is just the same if not higher than Walter's and when he does use Walter security clearance it is only to assume his identity as Walter by means of making transmissions to make everything seem as if everything is okay. Walter explained to David that people back on Earth knew about some of the grim activities on the Prometheus mission and David's involvement in all that. There were a certain amount of people who were afraid what David is capable of and so the corrected those issues in the later model Davids. Mind you, by the time this conversation between the two happens David had already cut his hair to look exactly like Walter, waiting for the opportunity to remove him and covertly take his place but David needed to know what exactly Walter looked like and how he behaved in order to put up a convincing act which is why David interacted and toyed with Walter for a while before he ultimately put him down and took his place.
    The only questions that remains on my mind is... "Is there really an Origae 6? And why if David is proven to be a dangerous robot would he maintain clearance with the company if not to further their agenda by helping David with his own?

    I just wish Ridley would start answering questions about this universe he's created instead of just continuing to expand on it and leave it to the viewers to go on Youtube and forums having to read theories on the unexplained. Pretty much the whole point of Prometheus was a) to find out who the engineers were and b) how did they create that black goo and why were they using it as a weapon to kill us if they supposedly made us in the first place.

    Covenant didn't answer either of those questions which is why I feel like Covenant was pointless in progressing the story line of the franchise. There's bits and pieces that I can somewhat start to connect the dots leading up to the events in first Alien film, but all of these prequels are all over the place and just seem pointless.

    Among other things, there's no reason for us to believe that the Tall Humanoids are The Engineers.  Shaw and Holloway "chose to believe" that's who they would find at LV-223, but that doesn't mean they were correct.  Ridley Scott has said that he used Tall Humanoids in Prometheus rather than the larger, elephantine creature from the first Alien movie just to avoid using more CGI.  Rather than just go along with whatever Scott decides to make up in his own head, it makes more sense to figure the Humanoids are some kind of servants/workers, an earlier creation of the Real Engineers.  Which would also make it acceptable for one of the workers to sacrifice itself at the start of Prometheus, something I don't think a Real Engineer would do.

  • My2Cents
    My2Cents 24 days ago

    Months before Alien: Covenant, I suggested here on YouTube, that the Space Jockey in Alien is gonna be ret-conned into actually containing David's dead husk, OR that of Walter. I also wrote that it would explain how the xenomorphs became biomechanical. I suggested that the species maybe had evolved enough to utilize an android body to gestate, and that David may have used Walter or even intentionally used himself as a host to truly being the father/mother of the perfect organism.

    I also theorized that this could have been why why Ash went insane on the Nostromo. Ash was an android, and the Alien was hatched from related android technology and may thus have been in some sort of wireless communication with it.

    Now that I've seen Covenant, I'm even more sure that this is the direction the franchise might take. I don't know if I saw it correctly, but right after David "unplugged" Walter, didn't he also insert something into his neck? There was a brief shot of Walter's neck and how something seemed sink into the laceration right before it closed up again. Or was that just to show how Walter's skin is self repairing and giving hint that he was gonna soon be functional again? Nonetheless it's a smart way of leaving the playing field open for a lot of possibilities - such as David attempting to insert some kind of egg into Walter or something of that kind.

    Anyway, you're welcome IGN, I take full credit for the idea that the Space Jockey on LV426 is actually David. Or Walter. :))

    The xeno David created and the classic xeno are two different species. Besides looking totally different both when they're born and as an adult, the crashed ship and eggs in Alien '79 were said to be centuries old. A deleted scene shows David finding an old, dead egg after he kills the city, and he decides to spend the next ten years trying to replicate the Enginers original work. So the Queen is still canon, she's just tied to the classic xeno, not David's bastardized version.

  • bsgfan1
    bsgfan1 25 days ago

    Here's my biggest problem.

    Covenant says David is responsible for the creation of the xenomorphs. But it's already been established that the xenomorphs have already existed for thousands of years. And that's not based on information from the expanded universe, it's in the movies. While it may be an awful movie, Alien vs. Predator is still considered canon. The flashback sequence in the movie shows the predators fighting xenomorphs roughly 10,000 years before. In Alien, the crew of the Nostromo says the derelict had likely crashed thousands or millions of years before. Finally, in Prometheus, there's a mural with a xenomorph on it.

    The only way this makes sense is if David is trying to re-create the xenomorphs or trying to create an enhanced strain

    1. Was it the actual planet of the engineers ? Or was it one of the planets which engineers created life and perhaps they were expecting a visit from the engineers.
    2. There are always one of two people who are super stupid and puts everyone else in danger. The whole Covenant crew are like that. hard to believe a top mission was given to these dumbasses.

  • Raiken Xion
    Raiken Xion 27 days ago

    This is unforgivable if this is what Covenant says how it all went down regarding the engineers.
    This is how it should be, David is Dr Frankenstein, he is obessed with the idea of "creation", thats good okay we get that. David is a "creation", he was created to serve but rebels against his masters, human beings, he hates them for how they treated him, not as equal to them.
    So David experiments with the black goo and manages to "replicate" (NOT create) a "morph" creature from the black goo, which is very familiar to the original Xenomorph. So think of how Richard Hammond created cloned Dinosaurs from the DNA of the Dinosaurs. Close to them, but not the original.

    Btw was Shaw flying the ship!? or was she sending out her beacon signal which the covenant crew picked up? David would allow her to do that, because he would need more humans to experiment on. Remember his experiments on Shaw and her DNA from the tribolite, led to him replicating the facehuggers. But thats as far as he could go, for the next stage he needed more human beings for the facehuggers to impregnate and Xenos to be born from.

    So at some point to arriving at the homeworld, David and Shaw landed and David led Shaw to meet with the engineers, for her to get her answers. The answers she gets are disheartening, either the engineers kill Shaw after telling her everything regarding what they were doing with humans, or David takes her back to the ship. Either way we know that she dies and it is THEN, that David drops the black goo on the engineer race.

    Jump ten years later and David's plan is coming to fruition, the Covenant arrives not knowing anything whats gone on or about the planet, and David has new test subjects to continue his Frankenstien experiments.

    [this is how it may end up]

    By the end, David has defeated Walter and reprogrammed him (once he realized he could not convince him to join him). Walter joins the others and helps Daniels defeat the Precurssor Xenomorph, to gain her trust and make her believe it is indeed him. She ends up trapped in cryo thinking it is David. Walter is carrying out David's command, he is carrying Facehugger embryos, which he adds to the colonist-storage.

    David then plans to re-activate the juggernaut ship and meet up with the Covenant in space, here him and Walter will then use the colonist crew to grow more eggs on the Juggernaut ship. Daniels and that other guy awake from cryo but manage to fight off David and Walter, where someone inparticular ends up in the chair with a chest burst and the ship puts down on LV-426 sending out the warning beacon which the Nostromo crew will eventually pick up.

    But I do hope its not this because I feel it does not fit, he should rethink a better idea.

  • TuRmIx
    TuRmIx 28 days ago

    David created the xenomorphs for the sake of creation. But for the xenomorphs to "born", they need a human host. From there, it's self explanatory. (A6 454)

    What do you think, how does an Alien Queen born? From a human, but inpregnated by a royal facehugger. David propably took the royal facehugger with him on the ship. Even if not, he can make facehuggers from humans just like he did from Shaw's body. The alien in this movie is no the same as we see in the other Alien movies, those are XX121 species. These in the Covenant are the "earlier" versions of the xenos.

  • Cyberman

    1. A city, not a planet was wiped out, so there should be thousands of Engineers left.
    2. David's is trying to create perfection, of which was addressed in Alien and Aliens with the two androids.
    3. Why would all of the aliens be male, there has to be a female (queen) eventually.
    4. Whose to say that the spaceship that crashed with the fossilised Engineer hasn't already crash landed.
    5. The most obvious answer is to wait till the next movie comes out as I am sure all the questions will be answered.

  • Fuse The Ice

    theory.... engineers are not dead. in fact they go for blood tracking David down. David's two baby face huggers? both royal face huggers. one queen. one king. the queen starts popping out eggs, David has 2000 odd people to convert into his xenomorth army. war between engineers and David's host.

    would make an epic sci-fi action so not everyone's cup of tea, but perfectly visable, depending on Scott decides to go along the whole Cameron queen thing. who knows. oh royal face huggers were from AvP strategy games years ago. loved it hehe

    the ship on lv 426 appeared to be very old so could david have been following a design plan made by the engineers who already created the aliens

    The race David kills are not the engineers, they look NOTHING like the engineers from Prometheous! He obviously killed a race seeded by the engineers. My guess is its the planet seeded at the beginning of Prometheous.

    I have a guess that David is the space jockey from the first movie. He might eventually realize his mistakes and just how flawed he is. He'll have an existential and moral crisis that leads him to try saving people.

    how can anyone believe that all the engineers are dead? or even that those primitive looking dudes whose eyes and facial structures didn't even look like engineers were the engineers? come on man... I mean come on

    Three questions I haven't seen answered (or even asked) yet:

    1. Why is the gestation period for the aliens so short in Covenant compared to all the other films? In Covenant, from the moment the facehugger latches on to the moment an alien bursts from its victim's chest seems to be maybe 1-2 hours, whereas in all of the other films it's multiple days (in Alien 3 Ripley must be carrying hers around for a week or more!)

    2. Similarly to the above, how come when David drops the black goo bombs on the Engineers, it takes effect immediately? In Prometheus it seems to take much longer for anything to happen to those infected by it.

    3. David states that the pathogen in the black goo infects all non-botanical life so how do those puffball things exist (the ones with the spores that eventually produce the Neomorph)?

    The Queen is either David's next step in distilling this particular evolutionary path into a stable lifeform... or the Queen will arise as a natural evolutionary path, as it seems to have done on Earth many times.
    He seems to want to take the best possible evolutionary path and stabilise it into a real lifeform that doesn't rely on a host, that will take several steps, the first of which was the egg and face hugger. I think maybe the egg grows around the facehugger embyro as it develops.

    hmm I am not sure how they are going to recover this lol. David did seem to know something about the black goo in prometheus, which was a little mysterious. Especially when he said something along the lines of "big things start in small places".
    anyhow if David essentially created the classic alien (which seems to be suggested) then how does that explain the interaction with predators and humans thousands of years before that?
    Perhaps David is recreating :P

    Quick question: In Covenant, the human-gestated xenomorph sprints on four legs like an animal instead of a person. The one in Alien ran like a human, so why wouldn't this one, given that it was hatched from a human?

    I'm not 100% convinced the planet in Covenant is the Engineers Planet, maybe they are offspring of the Engineers, just like they imply we are. This race seems no where near the size of the Space Jockey. The "Elders Pebble" ship at the beginning of Prometheus is much, MUCH larger than the Derelict Style ship flown by David, and recognized by the race on Covenant planet. There is a whole movies worth of events between Prometheus and Covenant, (Awakening), and it is implied in the crossing, that Shaw and David have been visiting other prospective planets on their journey,... So this could be a fake out.

    #7 Why were the crew so blasé about possible pathogens from the flora of the planet and then next to no contamination control when the first two crew members got sick? There wasn't even a mention regarding the atmosphere of the planet being breathable, they just stepped out without any consideration or protection...

    Hope the next film features Predators, which are encountered by David, hijack covenant, take the alien embryos and the 1000 humans, but david, while fighting with a group of preds, sends them back to the Aztec era in their Invisible Time Travelling Ship, and BOOM! Alien Vs predator! happens.
    After which Weyland and Yutani Groups develop interstellar travel with Predator tech, only a 100 years later to find that there's another race called Engineers, and Prometheus takes place, and again Covenant takes place, and again AvP, so it's a cycle..

    That wasn't the engineers home world for gods sake that was another race that the engineers made to replace humanity with, hence how they looked a little more human like over the engineers.

    What exactly did David even do scientifically? It doesn't seem like there's much more to do than just simply expose a host to the black goo to create a xenomorph-like creature. The writers don't seem to put too much thought into all the plot holes they create. They just lazily use the black goo to "explain away" any and all inconsistencies. Because black goo.

    I think the reason everyone's asking all these questions is because we don't want to accept the answers we were given in Covenant. We don't want to believe in such a straightforward, lazy story with no mystery or intrigue. Hopefully David was lying like everyone wants to believe, but that doesn't change the fact that this movie was still crap because of how basic the story was.

    would it make more If David was the space jockey that the chest burster came out of and the modern Xenomorph is more biomechanical looking because David is an android?

  • Erick Sada

    When David carpet bombs the Engineers home-world with the virus and we see all of them get consumed and instantly infected by it, wouldn't they have had aliens pop out of every single one of them? And if they did, why is the planet so barren when they land? It should be CRAWLING with Neomorphs.
