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.

Treat yourself to some Alien Merchandise!

As we await the next Alien movie, now is a great time to build your Alien collection and expand your Alien-themed wardrobe. Check out some products below and click here for even more options!

I like it.

That xeno (Or protomorph, if it is)looks different,more organic and animal like with fang like teeth and claws (even tho the hands look different than the ones shown im the trailer),fitting with the description that was discussed last year about the xeno origin.

Love it! The design is very reminiscent of the Alien 3 creature, but with more jagged teeth. Very organic looking.

Not really fond of this cover, looks more like a contemporary comic book take on a generic Xenomorph. I hope the actual creatures in the movie look more Giger-esque.

@easywolf32, you seem to complain about the mobile workings of this site often. I must say you're the only one with those issues as this site works very well on mobile. I use the site mostly through mobile since I'm usually on the go. When you log in, it also removes 90% of all 4 ads on a given mobile page. I'm happy to entertain positive feedback but what you are describing I've since improved 10 fold a year ago. Run our mobile through a page speed test as well, renders relatively quickly. Pop-ups or annoying advertisements I strictly prohibit from our network to specifically improve user functionality. If you continue to experience slow load times or have issues posting I encourage you to email me at info@scified, with appropriate browser / device information so I may offer some assistance. 


PraetorianMember2267 XPJan-31-2017 1:14 PM

looking forward to seeing this


OvomorphMember23 XPJan-31-2017 1:52 PM

Small fish Likes this.


FacehuggerMember236 XPJan-31-2017 4:19 PM

FacehuggerMember444 XPJan-31-2017 5:21 PM

Definitely our protomorph. Hoping for a Neomorph shot like this soon 


OvomorphMember11 XPJan-31-2017 5:55 PM

Can't wait to get this!


EngineerAdmin21915 XPJan-31-2017 6:29 PM

Good catch Tiago, it does look rather organic by comparison to the Xenomorph. I believe you're right, this is the Protomorph. 


OvomorphMember41 XPJan-31-2017 8:33 PM

@Chris, this site gets better every month. I do not know how you do it. I’m down here in Florida now though and I have a punishing job Chris. Anyway I have yet to load the site on the phone and will test it out fast.

Chris on with the show as they say!


I always imagined the Xenomorph to not have any eyes. Maybe the head has protective layers that cover many eyes and something like radar.

Anything is doable in science just about if you know what you are doing. So it could be possible that the Alien has a more complex
set of molecular compounds that can form the right convex curvatures. We know that it has a type of metallic teeth. Our eyes act as lenses as well to a certain power. The Alien could have other larger surfaces to create more complex curvatures. We do not know what is happening at the nano layer of the surface of the carapace; however, it may be absorbing photons and transducing them to another type of crystalline bio-mechanical set of lenses and protecting the underlying structure. The entire skull for that matter could be one big eye! That is why you cannot sneak up on them.  Those long tubes on their backs could be ears strong enough to sense vibrations form miles away or maybe the atomic movement in the air.

We just do not really know what this thing is really capable of doing.

Those structures in the Black goo are the bridge for us to think about what happens in this organism. I think the black goo is something way beyond the Higgs field. There is something smaller than the Plank length constant. Maybe it’s a quantum computer mixed with a very fast replicating field.  Nature sometimes has these strange tradeoffs. In order to get one reaction there is another but the cost in energy is very fast and depleting. We just do not know how or at what cost the Black Goo is produced or found by the Engineers. Does a Gram take them a hundred years to make.

Let us take this just a bit further. We know that the Alien on the Nostromo grows too fast to that very big size in just a matter of minutes.

After that it eats the crew because they taste better maybe. LOL

These are all very valid considerations. What did it absorb or what did it use internally to get to that size.

As far as the cover is concerned I am not going to be trying to enforce any strict conventions on others likes or dislikes for purely aesthetic purposes. I think it looks just fine. Perhaps it is more appealing to a much younger audience.

I like the way he looks. Sharper teeth and claws are scarier in my opinion. Which brings me back to a post a while ago about the so called hand in the trailer. I think I saw a post awhile ago about the xeno's or neos hand being on glass during the end of the trailer right before he kills the guy in the shower. I really don't think that's a hand. I've watched it multiple times and it looks like a plant to me not a hand. When you watch it again stare directly at that side of the screen and you can see it moves slightly. I'm talking like a split second. It's either a plant or a shadow. I strongly believe that's not his hand. 


OvomorphMember13 XPFeb-01-2017 5:55 AM

Anyone out there: Do we know if the cover image is based on the actual "Alien: Covenant" xeno design from the new movie or is it just an artist drawing? Thanks. I think it looks good. Obviously with Ridley and crew lighting it properly, it should look plenty terrifying! :)


DeaconMember10358 XPFeb-01-2017 6:37 AM

We cant judge this Alien due to a Comic image of it


DeaconMember10358 XPFeb-01-2017 6:43 AM

They are going to be very close to these, but image more detail on bigger scale... i think the design will be good it would be similar to like a merger of the AVP, Alien R and Alien 3 Xeno designs.


DeaconMember10358 XPFeb-01-2017 6:48 AM

Going to be busy for books..

So we have this behind the scenes book.

A Prequel Book set before AC and after Prometheus, and a official Novelization of Alien Covenant.

Rumor of a Sequel too, but i think this is actually the prequel book so say  if AC is Prometheus 2.5



PraetorianMember3378 XPFeb-01-2017 6:48 AM

Totally true, BigDave, you hit the target. It's just a drawing. 


DeaconMember10358 XPFeb-01-2017 6:54 AM

Note the look of the head, and also one of the hands is facing palm side to the camera and looks very like the Trailer Shower Scene Alien.

I was informed the new Xeno looks like these in this photo and their lower anatomy is to fit with the Aesthetic of the Queen and to be more polished look than say Alien Resurrection ones.

This will explain why they are so fast and nimble and can move around on all fours like a Rat/Mouse only one that can climb walls.

Chicken Xenomorph

OvomorphMember13 XPFeb-02-2017 12:26 AM

The skin looks so soft...


can i touch it?


DeaconMember10358 XPFeb-03-2017 7:07 AM

Looking at the photo on that cover...

imagine a better quality one of these but in a dark grey/black... hands similar to those in the trailer, the feet would leave same bloody prints as in the trailer and the head and face look like in the Cartoon image on the book.

Come to think about it... the way the back of the head looks, matches the Neomorph and other Creatures in the leaked prop shots lol

Nope the images here are not from AC... though


OvomorphMember29 XPFeb-03-2017 9:16 PM

Big Dave, this looks like a Xenomorph from Alien Resurrection?
