If we go the route that David created the thousands of eggs on LV-426, what must be deduced about the speed of a juggernaut?

It took David and Shaw about a year to reach Planet 4 in the juggernaut (and Shaw had to be placed in cryosleep). With engineers technically more advanced when it comes to space travelling, their ships must be able to travel very fast and over huge distances? Despite the juggernaut, most likely travelling many, many times the speed of light, it still took David and Shaw about a year to get there!

The best scenario would be that Planet 4 and Origae-6 is in the same direction as the Zeta2 Reticuli system. If they were in the opposite direction (or in a 90° direction) it would, most likely, be too far off for David (or an engineer) to get back in time since the happenings on LV-426 happened 18 years after the incidents on Planet 4. To get to Origae-6, it’s about another 8 years for The Covenant ship. After getting to Origae-6, that leaves, roughly, another 10 years for David to perhaps start a colony (of xenos), create the eggs (unless they aren’t already created on the ship) find a juggernaut, store all the eggs in the cargo hold, and get back to LV-426.

Still, according to my humble calculations, David (or someone else) would have sufficient with time to get from Origae-6 to LV-426 since it would take approximately 2 years for a juggernaut. That would give David about 8 years to experiment and other things to happen on Origae-6.

So, if there certainly are other questions in this scenario, time and space wouldn’t be a problem?

What do you think?

Thanks for clearing that up SM...  pretty much seems very logical date to take,  i hope they will reference this date in future movies or at least hope they dont release contradicting dates that make that date no longer applicable.

Certainly is a good lot of effort into the report....  I certainly hope when they have finished the Prequels, that maybe you and everyone connected with that Report get to make a updated one with all the New Stuff that the Prequels have shown.

It really would be awesome to have a detailed look at the Schematics for the Ships, including Technical Data, using those already available and also getting someone to make Schematics for ships not covered.

In regards to ships, a blueprint book is in the works. As far I know it will include ships from Covenant.

"Sadly AC had Characters that people just did not seem to be interested in talking about, only really David and Walter stick out...."

To me that is because the writers and Scott (since he throws out ideas about the story and hence tries to affect the end result) only seemed to give a crap also about the androids but Oram was alright also. Unfortunately we did not get to know much about Daniels even though she had a better personality than Shaw. Once again they failed with the characters so they learned nothing from Prometheus about that it seems to me. No one of the characters had any traits that made them stand out compared to each-other.

Have to totally agree with the lack of Character build up, we just never seemed to see much about Daniels, you kind of felt that Tennessee was more of a lead Character, and that it was a movie more so about David/Walter and Oram.

Looking at the 2099 Merger date, this is a very plausible date that fits nicely with the Chronological Time Frame of events... i feel that a Merger date a few years prior would maybe not have worked and one that is a few years latter not fitted...  so 2099 fits slap bang in the middle.

Daniels mentions they had been planning the mission to Oriage-6 for over 10 years, which means herself and others had been planning this Mission since the time of the disappearance of Prometheus. (the Covenants Crew etc are not aware of this though).

But it shows us that a long time had gone into this mission, we DO-NOT know who was funding the Mission, but maybe we can assume Weyland Industries would have had a key role in the planning.

So at some point with the CEO's of Weyland Industries away on the Prometheus, we have to ask WHO is in charge and gives the orders etc....     Was the Covenant Mission only in its early stages as far as plans, and so no where near as far as building the ships etc... i think this is likely.

So with Weyland and Vickers missing in action, would any such investments be on hold?  would those working at the Company consider the Preparations that Daniels and her team had been making, simply not worth the investment in light of the Companies Situation as far as LOSS of Contact with Prometheus?

I think what ever events lead to the Merger, we can see that after the Merger, the Merged Weyland-Yutani company indeed had seen the potential in the ideas regarding a attempt to Colonize a Discovered Earth like World Oriage-6 and thus continued the advancement and preparations into this mission and its eventual Launch.

I just find it interesting that Daniels and her Partner would have at least been researching into Origae-6 as a potential 2nd Home for Mankind, and this process began 5 or so years prior to the Merger, and then actually had been funded and launched nearly 4-5 years latter.

Anyone has The book of Alien by Paul Scanlon? How is it?
