Alien: Covenant, Spores are tiny insects

Alien: Covenant, Spores are tiny insects

I changed my mind on the fungal spore "motes" in Alien Covenant. This drawing from David, seen in the "Advent" extended scene, is what swayed me. It clearly shows one singular mote breaking away from the swarm and implanting something in the host victim. -

I now think that the spores are tiny insect parasites. The fungus was mutated by the black goo and its reproductive system was weaponized. It's spores were mutated to become the insects, just as Holloway's sperm became the trilobite.

I was also sceptical that actual insects (even alien insects) could be so extremely tiny as to fly, as a group into a human ear hole, such as Ledward’s. Well I was wrong there as well. According to Wikipedia, the smallest insects in the world are indeed a type of tiny wasp called “Fairyflies”, which can be as small as 0.139 mm, with the smallest flying insect being 0.15 mm long. Insanely tiny. So obviously the motes in Alien: Covenant would work as tiny flying insects. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fairyfly

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.
