With focusing so hard on Alien: Covenant and usually thinking about its plot and what the trailer will look like before bed, chances are you're likely to dream about it.
This is exactly what happened to me last night. What's interesting is how the mind creates cinematic experiences based on your thoughts, without having much reference to go by.
I figured I can't be the only one to have an Alien: Covenant dream. So, for this topic, feel free to share your recollections (what you can remember) of your own Alien: Covenant dreams below and we'll see if any of our minds guessed right when the trailer and movie finally do come out.
My dream was relatively short (because I died lol) but from what I remember:
I was part of the Covenant crew, as if like watching a found-footage film. The crew ventured to this Alien world and touched down. Upon exploring we came across a pyramid, similar to the one in Prometheus.
From there, a female crew member discovered a grey-ish / white tablet with writing on it. Like how David activated the door in Prometheus, we managed to activate it and the tablet began to slowly move forward. Someone referred to it as a tomb and then one of the crew gasped and told us the writing on the side of the tablet was a warning and that opening this tablet would lead to horrible things.
It was shortly after that we heard a deep, menacing growling from within the tomb and I saw a black figure start to slowly make its way towards the opening. We couldn't close the tablet door once it was opened and we started to scramble and hide behind whatever we could. Like in Alien: Isolation, you knew the beast was near you but you couldn't see it and you didn't want to look up to check.
I closed my eyes and covered my ears, expecting to be eaten any minute (one of those dreams you can't wake up from). I waited but nothing happened. So I opened my eyes just in time to see the long, Alien hand reach from behind me and grab me by the face.
It was at that moment I woke up. Some details like the images and writing on the tablet are fuzzy and can't really remember completely. But I remember seeing a similar mural to the one in Prometheus. But instead of the two variations of Engineer / Human with two alternate Facehugger designs on them, it was similar but new. The Hugger looked right. But the Chestburster looked very different, like almost fully grown, with multiple limbs and a very pointy skull. I can only assume my mind cooked this up after thinking about the Neomorph description.
Anyways, that was my first Covenant dream that I can remember. If you've had any, share them below! I'm curious to hear how other fans are interpreting the Alien: Covenant story and piecing together what we know so far.

I also had many dreams about Alien covenant, but one thing which really sucks is that when you wake up you forget what you dreamed.
Here are dreams that I remember for some reasons:
DAVID AND THE CRASHED DERELICT ON LV-426
David and Shaw during their trip to the engineer homeworld came across LV-426,picked up a distress signal and landed on LV-426 to see where the distress signal comes from (Shaw was dormant inside the hypersleep).David found the crashed Juggernaut and once inside he activated
The xeno's body fell inside the hole and dropped next to one of the evolved ovomorphs.(we don't see that,we only see the body falling inside the whole).
The SJ started activating the ship,when the suit started covering him the Facehugger climbed out of the hole and subdued the SJ by pushing its tentacle through the helmet's mouth and started impregnating him that way.The mouth remained opened from that point on.
(I couldn't get the classic facehugger).
The recording ended with the chestburter bursting from the SJ's chest.
The facehugger and the chestburster brought interest to David so he lifted himself down the hole and started studying one of the eggs.He took one to their juggernaut and continued their journey.
I already posted my whole theory of how I think the derelict crashed on this topic.
ENGINEER AND McBRIDE'S CHARACTER
Danny McBride's character was being chased by 5 xenomorphs inside one of the Engineer temples.After long chase he managed to lock himself inside some room which had hypersleep chambers,and in one of them was dormant engineer.
Danny McBride started typing on the hypersleep chamber, hoping to wake the engineer and that the engineer might help him.The engineer woke up,stood up and both started looking at each other.McBride was terrified by engineer as he didn't know if the engineer was going to kill him by that look or to help him.Danny McBride was shaking the whole time,he then smiled,which the engineer smiled back,and McBride fainted.
SHAW DISCOVERING THE TRUTH ABOUT HOLLOWAY
I don't remember much of this,But what I remember is that David told Shaw the reason why the engineers wanted to destroy humanity.He also revealed that he was responsible for Holloway's death.Infuriated by the reveal,Shaw tried to run from him but David knocked her over and dragged her to the room where he was experimenting.Inside the room,when Shaw remained conscious David started talking about the xenomorphs,about their biology and how much he is impressed with it.
He then let the facehugger (the one he took from the derelict) subdue her.What I else remember when Shaw woke up she ran far from David and locked herself somewhere inside the hypersleep chamber which prevented her from getting chestbursted.
10 years later she was found by the crew of USCSS Covenant and taken to their ship.They removed the xenomorph embryo from her,but the embryo grew very fast and went on a rampage across the ship.
Let me go to sleep now so I can dream more.

Wow that last one about Shaw and David is pretty believable. I could actually see some of that taking place in the film haha. Curious to see how close our own imaginations are the real deal.
Wow! I love this thread, Chris! I myself had an Alien dream, however this was still when Alien Covenant was entitled Paradise Lost.
It began with me drifting down a dark and endless corridor, similar to those of the Nostromo. When all of a sudden, a white box fell out of the ventilation tubes above. I began opening the box with this overwhelming sense of fear, before a massive Facehugger leaped out of the package and latched itself upon my face.

This is fantastic, great to read your dreams guys!
Well, I've had a few ALIEN: COVENANT related dreams, but annoyingly they seem to be hard to remember after waking up!
I did have a recurring dream about the translucent Alien, which I shared here: Giger's Necronom IV appears on Alien: Covenant Clapperboard! The one where I meet Sir Ridley and ask him about it!! Hahaha
Then I had an absolute stunner which I do remember because it was so incredible!
I'm in a dimly lit room with Sir Ridley and the spirit of H.R Giger. We discuss the art and effects of the upcoming ALIEN films. All of a sudden I am somehow connected to their consciousness. We think and see as one. Our merged minds eye passes through a living, trippy, vortex.
The best way I can describe it is a beautifully coloured, giant Gigeresque mandala, constantly metamorphosing into all manner of strange lifeforms, as we pass through it's kaleidoscope of incredible hues. Finally it darkens around the edges as the centre intensifies, until it forms a huge beautiful eye, which gradually increases in brightness and size. Then everything stops abruptly and our connection ceases.
Ridley Scott and I look at one another and say exactly the same thing..."that was the most beautiful, incredible thing I have ever experienced, but how the hell could you represent it on film?!"
I know why this dream came about, because there's more than a hint of MOEBIUS about it. I'd been looking at his wonderful Edena Cycle where a pair of interstellar investigators search for a space station and it's crew, and discover the mythical paradise world of Edena!
Wow, I keep great company in my dreams. Sir Ridley, H.R Giger, MOEBIUS and Lone take a trip to Mandala World!
Don't think we will be seeing a Giger inspired kaleidoscopic mandala trip anytime soon, but hey, it's good to share! XD
