Alot has been said here about the meaning of the movie title and the ship.
However, some religious and esoteric aspects have been absent here.
We can safely say that the covenant is a reference to the ark of the covenant...just check the crew logo on their uniforms: it features the couple of cherubim that were on top of the ark of the covenant.
While some of the israelites had seen the ark while wandering in the desert on their way back from egyptian slavery, the content of the ark was shown only to a selected few(Moses, Aharon and some priests).
The content was known to be at least the following: the tablets of the law, moses rod, some manna.
Were i am getting is that the content of the ark guarded by a couple of cherubim is an enclosed secret and that's probably how Riddley take on that matter.
In other words, the covenant which is a ship of couples(cherubim) meant to colonize remote inhabitable planets...but actually there's a secret here...the couples also guard their embryos in the ship just like in the ark.
It is well hinted by Tennesse fantastic act in the realesed message/broadcast to his little brother.
Notice how he feels when he mentions his brother's boys will grow up(while his are probably on the ship in a state of cryo).
What do you guys think?
Very cool theory, not that my head is not already exploding from all possible connections and references ))
rozns Welcome. There are a few veteran members who would normally pounce on your post but seem absent this weekend. One word- BigDave.
Fairly certain you may have just hit the nail on the head
dk I think either work commitments or they're keeping their heads down to avoid spoilers... that to me would be reasonable assumptions.
Well we might even get to see Indiana Jones as well :-)
