The second trailer for Alien: Covenant came packed with new footage. Today we look at two specific cut-scenes which answer some questions we were pondering. The first of which addresses who's dog tags were discovered by Daniels in the crashed Juggernaut and the second looks at a set piece from Prometheus that has been re-used for Covenant!
Dr. Elizabeth Shaw's Dog Tags
The dog tags discovered by Daniels is in fact Shaw's. When you crop the image and rotate it, you can make out the words "DR. E SHAW". This scene likely takes place in the Hypersleep Chamber of the Juggernaut. A recent set visit report revealed that Shaw locks herself in this Hypersleep chamber and uses it as a refuge, likely from David. Whether or not Shaw is actually discovered in this room or not has yet to be explained.
Space Jockey Suits - Engineer Pressure Suits
Of course, as the Covenant crew investigate the downed Juggernaut, they will pass through similar passages we saw in Prometheus. Prior to entering the Orrey room, like in Prometheus, a series of Engineer Pressure suits line the walls before the door. These suits and this hallway was teased briefly in the new trailer:
Also - it's interesting to note this screenshot below, which shows the crew initially entering the ship. It looks like the Juggernaut crashed against a waterfall. Water is seen running from off-screen, under the downed craft, outwards, down the mountainous terrain beneath it.
It's possible upon crashing on the planet's surface, some of the Black Goo leaked from the Urns which housed them, into the water of this new planet. Perhaps this is how the spores were created?

The future of Alien
The Alien franchise is taking a dramatic turn at 20th Century Studios, now owned by Disney. Currently there are two major Alien projects in development - a new Alien TV series by Noah Hawley and a new, stand-alone Alien movie being directed by Fede Alvarez. Both of which will be taking the franchise in a new direction - moving away from the Alien prequel direction Ridley Scott set out to pursue back in 2012.
