Nice essay on the parallels and use of classic literature in Alien Covenant.

I can't wait to see all the extras and the Director's commentary. Hopefully it addresses the whole "not wearing suits" thing. In the Collector's guide it said cuz there was oxygen and that the atmosphere readings were so good but I wonder if Ridley anticipated so much backlash from that since it seems to be one of the main contentions. I personally don't mind, I mean, the atmosphere read better than Origae-6.

The novel also explains why he did not detect those pathogens.
It would not have hurt to have that stuff in the movie, but unnecessary, as I assumed they had already done all this with probes before landing just after landing. I don't need to see every little sci-fi trope spoon fed on screen.
