Something I always I think at this point in the movie,is that the image on Ash's screen is of the pre-chestburster in Kane. I know it has a big black eye (which the chestburster does not have) but it has some similarity.  It reminds me of  an embryo.  Another thought from this scene, is that Ripley creeps up on Ash but never mentions the thing on the screen!  Sorry about the source of the picture !    

Today I have been dedicated to post on as many topics as possible until I pass out from drinking too many beers.

I always felt that the little circular object in the screen was the developing xenomorph embryo, and Ash is watching over its growth like a mother hen protecting her brood--hence he shuts the screen off when Ripley shows up.

Ash is one creepy bugger. Just watching the chestburster develop inside Kane, and then when Kane's eating his last supper Ash is still eyeballing the poor guy, just waiting for the show to start.

In deleted dialogue Ash said there was a 'stain' on Kane's lung, indicating it was blocking the scanner.

It's possible it was an embryonic Alien.  I like that it's ambiguous.

Indeed.. we all know the Xenomorph Face Hugger implants a Embryo well this is what most assumed... the Alien Covenant Creature Design Team T-Shirts showed a break down of the Face Hugger Anatomy to a degree and indeed seemed to show that indeed a Embryo is implanted.

Most Life on Earth (Birds, Fish, Reptiles, Amphibians and Mammals) all have a early first stage Embryo Stage that is nearly identical.

So maybe a Xeno Embryo is not massively different.

Wishing those around the World who finally get to see AC this week a very good weekend

I always thought the way Ash was acting strange the whole time indicated that he knew it was fixing to be "alien-busting-out-some-poor-schelp time..."

This is one one the foundation truths to my premise that Weyland has known about the black goo and its offspring a long time...

@S.M. Ripley or Dallas later confronts Ash about claiming that the "tumor" was a "stain blocking the scanner", knowing he was using that excuse as a cover-up. He knew that "stain" was a xeno in vivo...

Kane is a mammalian host, so I think the embryo simply inherited the embryonic design from his DNA. 

Good post, upvoted!

The stain was visible to anyone, so I'm not sure how he could've used it as a cover up?

I think Ripley didn't say anything about the what was on the screen because Ash shut it off before she could see it. It might have been a whole other thing if she asked him to turn the monitor back on.

She could see it because she asks Ash what it is.  He says he doesn't know yet and turns it off.

SM- correction. She apparently saw it. It seems like she was more focused on getting on his case for letting it in than viewing the screen.

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.
