CHRIS PICARD - These images are utterly amazing! The alien itself is such an incredible monster, and the art direction for the film still stands as some of the most important for science fiction to this very day! Thank you so very much for sharing this with us! :)

Thanks Chris for Sharing... ;)

Seen many before but there are some Gems i never seen before... include this one.

If we ignore everything else but this movie, then you can somehow the Xenomorph must some how secrete something that it uses to built the Bio-Mechanical but more so Biological Nest if you would, this has the same kind of similarity to the Biological look of the Derelict to a degree and yes the Hive that we saw in Aliens and Alien Resurection.

The one thing that was also never touched upon or explained much in the Franchise.... why does the Xeno produce this and how... we kind of know roughly what Purpose...

This is the Money Shot for me of the Bunch up close and in detail.... we can see what we can assume is a puncture to the head... and so this is Logically Bret and it shows us the Xenomorph does not need a Live Host for some purpose of its Procreation... But it needs a Body, and its Genetic Material.

So its safe to assume the Xenomorph somehow is able to Genetically Alter the DNA contained within this Body to Mutate it into a Vessel for something else.... i.e Egg Morph.  I hope they expand upon this idea in future movies and it seems ONE Concept shot in Blomkamps Alien 5 had a very very similar shot... only it seemed the victim was alive during the Metamorphosis.

So its safe to assume the Xenomorph can somehow Mutate the DNA of a Body to become something else... now Prometheus we see the Black Goo can Metamorphosize/Mutate a Organisms DNA to become something else.

The Egg Morph/Metamorphosis concept is something that Star Beast had... prior to Aliens Queen Concept......  I have always theorised that Logically this Process is how a Queen is Produced.

About Alien: Covenant

Alien: Covenant Movie

Release Date:

May 19th, 2017

Plot Synopsis:

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in ALIEN with ALIEN: COVENANT, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with PROMETHEUS -- and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world -- whose sole inhabitant is the "synthetic" David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.
