Good find! Now knowing that it's there, I wish there had been a shot of the group running past it on their way into the city.

So it is true what I stated here:

I'm happy!

So its just staying idle somewhere as all engineer ships did from beginning of series. Is it their characteristics to leave their ships random places?

Nice find!! cool little easter egg in the film.

Guess that de-bunks the theory that David somehow took out the Scorpian ship and it's explosion was the Neutrino blast.....

Not arguing that isn't it but I do have to ask this:
Why hide it like that?  I've seen the movie three times and never noticed it and was looking hard for it the last viewing.

The Scorpion ship looks crashed, not parked in the valley. It looks wrong lying half way up a valley.

The correct storage for the Scorpian ship would probably be a vast underground hangar.

As stated in another thread with quotes from some interview, the scorpion mothership is crashed in that shot.  After David bombed the city, ther emust have been a big "dust up" leaving the scorpion crashed there, and David's juggernaut crashed up the hill.

@Ripleys_Ghost - Thank-you for the fine work!!

Awesome catch, I missed it in the film to!

I REALLY hope they touch on what happened between that ship and the juggernaut.

From my topic:

A conversation between concept artists Wayne Haag and Steve Burg (in the comment section of the page showing the Alien Mothership textures) reveals that there was a battle between the two alien ships and both of them crashed after it.

According to Steve Burg, the Mothership appears in the scene that shows the Lifter leaving the city.

Steve Burg:

You know how when you work on things, you kind of "live there"? With this, I was imagining all the things that might have been going on inside this giant craft - which I guess is sort of the "Coast Guard" for the planet. Since it's nowhere to be seen later on, and the Juggernaut is crashed miles away, there must have been quite a "dust-up" after David dropped the black goo!

Wayne Haag:

You can see it crashed further up the valley when the Lifter leaves the city! You have to look quick though!

Steve Burg:

No kidding? Wow, I will have to try and spot that!

So its ship david came from. What happened to scorpion dock ship?


Jun-09-2017 3:28 PM

The ship in the picture is the scorpion ship, not the juggernaut which David and Shaw travelled in.
