Sensational Alien Covenant News! David Can’t Be the Creator of the Monster!




Posted Nov-22-2017 11:15 AM

The David haters will be happy.

A new photo has just answered the enigma by showing Darth Vader and the xenomorph in the same spaceport. Probably you know that the Star Wars stories take place in a galaxy far away, not in our galaxy called Milky Way. The sensational photo serves as a proof that the xenomorph existed in another galaxy long time ago, so David can’t have created the original monster.

I tried googling what years (in Star Wars timeline) Darth Vader lived since I don't know much about the Star Wars universe.  Apparently he was alive from 41BBY - 4ABY. What does that convert to in the Alien series timeline?

BBY = before the battle of Yavin, ABY = after the battle of Yavin (battle of Yavin = Star Wars Episode IV)

Article published on 8 November 2017:

Thanks to the opening titles, we all know that the ‘Star Wars’ movies happened ‘a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…’. But how long is ‘a long time ago’ exactly? All a bit nebulous isn’t it. Well no longer. Thanks to Georgetown University assistant professor Patrick Johnson, we’re a bit nearer to working it out.

In an excerpt from his book ‘The Physics of Star Wars: The Science Behind a Galaxy Far, Far Away’ published in Wired, Johnson appears to made a breakthrough.

“The best theories that we have indicate that our universe is about 13.7 billion years old,” he writes.

“Assuming the Star Wars galaxy is in our universe, we need a few indicators to determine when in our universe’s history Star Wars could occur.”

From here, he takes into consideration a few factors, from the age of our universe, the age of the galaxies in our universe, formed a billion years ago after the ‘big bang’, and when single cell organisms began to evolve into ‘fully formed multicellular organisms’.

All really basic stuff.

“Altogether, this means that Star Wars needs to be at least 9 billion years after the big bang. This leaves plenty of years before the current time (about 4.7 billion to be precise), so it could still count as ‘a long time ago,’ but it is certainly closer to now than to the big bang,” he continues.

So roughly speaking, Luke, the Empire and the rise of Darth Vader all happened around five billion years ago.

Thanks for Spoiling Star Wars EP8-9 and Revealing who Created the Engineers then :(

Yes, no doubt, Snoke is the father of the Engineers.

Another theory:

'In the posts algomeysa stated that at the end of empire the star wars galaxy looks like Andromeda. I have a thoery that supports that claim. Now bear with me on this.

On August 17th, 1885 Ludovic Gully first observed supernova SN1885A in the Andromeda galaxy.
in the Expanded Universe book Dark Apprentice by Kevin J. Anderson, Kyp Durron used the sun crusher to cause the star Caridan to supernova.

Scientists believe that SN1885A to have been 2,600,000 light years away. As many are aware aliens of the same type as E.T were in phantom menace. E.T claimed to be from 3,000,000 light years away.

Assuming SN1885A and Caidan were the same event and considering where Dark Apprentice is in the Star Wars timeline I place episode 4, a new hope to have taken place August 17, 2,598,126 B.C.'

A comment from https://www.quora.com/Why-does-Star-Wars-take-place-a-long-time-ago-in-a-galaxy-far-far-away :

'We tend to view science fiction movies as if they all must take place in the future.

However, the universe is nearly 15 billion years old. Our entire solar system and its planets are relative newcomers to the universe… it was formed about only about 4.6 billion years ago. And the human race didn’t arrive until VERY recently. In fact, earth spent 99.999% of its existence without humans present.

But the time it took for our little planet to form and spawn life is absolutely NOT an indicator for how long it may have taken elsewhere. Entire space-faring civilizations could have risen to galactic glory and fallen to dust long before the earth ever formed. We simply have no way of knowing.

So Star Wars may have all taken place a thousand years ago… or a million years ago… or a billion. Lucas never pinned it down. But he did say that it wasn’t in our galaxy. There’s many billions of galaxies, so anyone’s guess is as good as the next one.

The fact that Star Wars has “humans” or a human-like species could either be coincidental… or it could be due to the story being portrayed by earth people… or it could mean that some of them eventually made it through intergalactic space and found their way here.

NOTE: Battlestar Galactica was another sci-fi series that starts a long time ago. It’s a bit of an epic saga, but they eventually reach earth… about 160,000 years ago (which was quite clever, as the first appearance of homo sapiens on earth took place around that time).'
