After a few road bumps and technical difficulties along the way we are finally ready to unveil the second episode in our ongoing animated series inspired by Prometheus and Alien: Covenant! Today, Jason Cardona, I and the community here at Alien-Covenant.com are proud to showcase the second instalment in our unofficial Alien: Covenant animated series!

Titled "Infection", this episode tackles some of the biggest questions fans had after viewing Prometheus. We analyzed many fan theories shared on our forums and paired many with information we learned after viewing Alien: Covenant. This episode illustrates our best guess at what happened to the Engineers on LV-223 prior to the Prometheus' arrival.

A popular fan theory involved a confrontation between Engineer races - those looking to create life and spread their genetic code across the universe - and those looking to destroy life by creating the highly mutable black goo pathogen David ironically used to wipe out the remaining Engineers on Paradise prior to the events of Alien: Covenant.

Fans will notice subtle details in this episode that help to tie up loose ends and explain some of the events referenced in Prometheus.

You can check out episode 2 on YouTube now:

Be sure to visit the official page for the animated series here on Alien-Covenant.com for more information about the series, links to discussion threads in our forum dedicated to this series and for information on how you can help support our illustrator and animator Jason! As always, your comments and opinions are welcome and thank you to everyone for their patience while Jason and I worked on polishing up this episode.

Jumping ahead, as a teaser, Episode 3 will tackle fan theories involving what happens after Alien: Covenant and what will lead us into Alien: Awakening (working/unofficial title of Alien: Covenant 2). Have theories? Be sure to share them in our forums and yours might be used in our next episode!

About Alien: Covenant 2 / Alien Awakening

The state of the Alien: Covenant sequel continues to remain uncertain. Ridley Scott has mentioned previously that they have a story already in place and know exactly where the sequel to Covenant will go, however the recent acquisition of 20th Century Fox film properties by Disney have potentially put the rumored-to-be-titled Alien: Awakening on hold for the time being. As new details arise concerning Alien: Covenant 2 we will be your premiere source and you can find information on the Covenant sequel by visiting the About Alien: Awakening page here.

Cool. I can't wait for more. One thing I would like to see in an animated version of the lost/unmade Xenomorph vs Neomorph scene.

KingKaijuGojira that would be pretty amazing!

FANTASTIC!! I re-watched it about 5 times and loved every second of it!! For some reason I don't get a comment-box on youtube, so wanted to post here to make sure you knew how much I enjoyed this episode. :)
I really love these episodes, they kick-off/spark all sorts of ideas in my head for potential stories based off them, and/or ways I can include them in my works as a genuine Nod of respect and acknowledgement! :)

I like the upgrade to scampering-neomorph at the opening-creds bit also!

Great work- really adds ideas Prometheus should have addressed from the get go and makes it better. Thanks for creating this!

That last scene with the Ultramorph/Deacons stalking in the darkness is amazingly chilling!

I loved this one even more, I think Ridley would be proud if you, can't wait for episode 3

aaaaaaand....gonna have to do some editing to factor this in to ALIEN: Manticore.

For the sake of Completeness, and as a gesture of Respect to the Animated Series and the wonderfully talented people behind them!

Just to say, though you probably already suspected, I'll be including this (evidenciary) in ALIEN: Manticore as the crew's poking about in that building to a MUCH greater degree than the Prometheus crew did. So they will find the evidence and such of this incident. :)

I've re-watched this and Ep 1 I don't know how many times now, LOVE them both!!!

Well done! I especially like the atmosphere that the music added to. This was a lot creepier than both Prometheus and Alien Covenant which is a good thing in this case.

OH MY GOSH I LOVE THIS SO MUCH! It fills in the gaps so perfectly and I love the background music and just everything!

But also, I'm a freaking fool for watching this right before bed when I need to be up early tomorrow...
