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.
