ENGINEER SHIPS – Animal origin?

ENGINEER SHIPS – Animal origin?

Several Alien fans believe that the Engineer ships are/were grown like ordinary plants in a vegetable garden.

But if we look at some concept art images (Steve Messing) of the ship in question, it is easy to see that they are very similar to hammerhead sharks. Is it possible that the Jaggernaut was made of/from a dead animal? You decide!

Now I wonder... What does it look like naked with skin?

Upvoted!

That's something I've thought.Thanks to Giger's magnificent art work,it has the same biomechanical look as the xenomorph leading one to believe it may have been alive at once point in time.

Would you Kindly?

I think it was envisioned as some living Organism, maybe part basic Organism and Part Plant?

Basically say a Star Fish Meets Pumpkin with some Mechanical Elements lol

I hope that the only AWAKENING we are in for is FOX/RS wake up and learn from their mistakes.

Thx, BigDave, look at the shark's mouth. The ship has a 'mouth' as well. And look at the rays of light. :D

I've always envisioned the Juggernauts growing amongst cliffs in huge channels of some writhing Giger biomech landscape and then flying off to other worlds by a space jockey who is also grown within each ship. When they reach their destination the two ends of the U or C shape meet in coitus and the ship impregnates itself thus creating the Alien egg cargo which is then deposited from the clearly labial openings of the ship.

I think of the design of the Derelicts/Juggernauts every time I see this picture:

There are some alien fans that prefer that the derelict ship was grown out like a plant. I am more of a naturalist/realist or what ever to call it and I think that the ship is something that the engineers built or maybe found somewhere when they were traveling in space and took back to their planet to evolve it. Just because they have the same shape as a shark doesn’t mean that they were grown like shark, they simply have the same shape. For example if you make a statue that looks like a horse it means that it has a shape like a horse but these are not the same things.

 

Auximenes: That is an interesting observation

Impregnates itself... Interesting idea. Like blood worms - they can do that if I'm not mistaken.

/Talking about a scorpion-like ship again.../

I think it's a good idea to revisit this thread, the old topics can be new for the newcomers.

A more or less relevant and rare image of the Derelict with closed entrance, I can't find it in higher res:

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.
