"You got 40 seconds to get to the escape pod."

Captain Janek had work to do. In his last moments of life, he ejected the Lifeboat and gave Vickers 40 seconds to get out of his sight if she wanted to take her chances on the surface of LV-223. No revelations here...just showcasing Weyland Industries technology and the last moments a Weyland was running the company.

She was in charge of Weyland Industries for just minutes after watching her dad die and couldn't stop Captain Janek from destroying the Prometheus. 

It had to be comforting to Captain Janek when he put the beautiful enraged soulless spoiled brat outside.

You just confirmed my belief that she was human. I would think a synthetic would have not have panicked like that.

We could also check the bottom of the juggernaut to see if it was a red or white stain dk. All joking aside, it does state in the Weyland-Yutani Report that Meredith Vickers is Peter Weyland's only legitimate child.

Nice to know that. I am one of the folks that goes by the movie pretty much. I dabble a bit but I think lowest common denominator. The average fan likely watches the movies and expects the story to be told in that format. I can appreciate the possible depths- that is why I am here- but here is my reality:

A conversation with an Alien franchise fan who only watches movies.

Michon- Hey dk, did you see AC?

dk- Yeah- did you like it?

Michon- It was great, but I didn't understand the flute music scene. I just rolled with it.

dk- Yeah- it is cool you liked the movie and that stuff gets explained if you get on Scified to delve into it.

Michon- Nah- that's ok. I just want to see a good Alien movie. Maybe they should just explain it in the movie.

I think that is a proper way to treat the Alien: Franchise.  If the people working on A:C want to share more than that, they should appropriately distribute that info within the Alien: Covenant DVD.  People should not have to scour the internet to find more information that can lead to a greater understanding of the movie!  If it ain't in the movie, it should be ON THE DVD!  I would even accept having more information in the movie novel as well, but apparently the people in charge of where that kind of information goes does not respect the fans time.  This problem to me has really began with the prequels since the internet has become so common around their time.  The people in charge need to get organized!  or "Organizized" has the one and only Spider One puts it (it's a band's song).

Sorry, I don't get what you mean?  Is the song "Organizized" in the Taxi Driver video game?  I've heard of it and played it a couple times myself.

Here is another way to put it. I love a certain song by a certain band. I hear it on the radio and hate it because it gets chopped for time constraints. May not be the best example, but it is true.

We really are on the same page dk. Thank you dude.

A compare and contrast topic on Travis Bickle and David 8 may be in the works.

Bickle was meticulous in his planning and development of weapons, had lost his mind a little, and then unleashed himself on his enemy. He also fumbled with the ladies much like David 8 with Daniels.

One thing for sure, Travis was no android.

Thanks for the link.  Yea, Taxi Driver was before my time.  I've never seen it, but I have a desire to watch it.  The only reason is in the memory of John Hinckley Jr.  Does anybody have any respect for this guy?  I do.  I got John Hinckley Jr. Day on my calendar.  It's March 30th.  That's the day of the attempted assassination.

Judge me as you will, but I do respect that man and choose to celebrate a holiday in his name.  It's something I decided to do since I remembered the story a few years ago.

You know they just recently let that guy out of the psych. ward sometime this year!  He's a free man.  I could care less really.  I'm not putting that on my calendar to celebrate.  I'm sure John is though.

(I wonder if I'm going to get any hate for posting this? or lectured?)

I Moon Girl I was a pre teen when he shot Reagan. Kind of turned our world upside down back then. If I was a mod I would say to keep politics out of threads- but I am not, so I won't.

No hate, but it sort of opens some bad memories at a place to escape them.

Sorry to upset you.  

Still, even though it is related to politics, it's just by chance.  There is no agenda pushing here, just a memory of history regardless of who was being targeted.  John could've tried to kill John Lennon and it wouldn't change anything that I'm saying.  He might have too, but apparently someone beat him to it.

No lecture from me I Moon Girl.

No respect for John Hinckley Jr. here either. 

I think that is why I try to dive into the characters and events dk opposed to talking about the talented actors behind all of it. It (this forum) does provide an escape. I can't watch the news because some how every topic covered has a political connection. This is our oasis from that.

Okay, so back to the thread then.

I probably wouldn't died with the ship if I was Vickers.  Yes, so she can survive on her lifeboat, but it just wouldn't seem like the right thing to do for me.  I guess that is the point of this scene with regards to the Weyland Corporation.  There are no exceptions to the selfishness of Weyland Corp.

Still, without Vickers trying to escape, Shaw wouldn't never survived that Engineer.  I wonder what would've happened?  She couldn't out run that Engineer.  That Engineer wouldn't killed Shaw, which would mean David would be at the mercy of anything, while the Engineer would've got another ship and set course to Earth (at least that's what we would assume).  So in a sense, Vicker's actions saved Earth.

Yet, I don't think the writers would allow this to happen.  If there was no lifeboat, then there would be another way for Shaw to kill that Engineer, or would there?

I know Ati.

Vicker's private recipient has to be someone high level considering the content of the message (removal of her father from power). I bet she was CEO for less than ten minutes.

Ingeniero Sorry- a nerve was hit and it seems we should move on yes?

I guess the question that needs to be answered is whether Vickers actually escaped within the 40 seconds?

"Still, without Vickers trying to escape, Shaw wouldn't never survived that Engineer."

That is an excellent point I Moon Girl. Dr. Shaw would not have the means to stop the Engineer had Vickers decided to go all in saving those back home and stayed on the Prometheus. Things did line up for Elizabeth quite well on LV-223. David 8 put a stop to all that good fortune.

I love the first picture that Ingeniero posted.  It looks flawless.  So flawless, that it kind of looks fake.  So maybe it's not flawless... Regardless of what it is, I love that escape pod picture of Vickers.

Thank you I Moon Girl for your compliment on the image.

I adjusted the tone, contrast, and brightness to bring out the colors. The last image with the Prometheus, escape pod, Dr. Shaw, and the juggernaut is my favorite. I do love the escape pod zoom with the bright colors too. All very vivid.

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.
