It is finally May 1st and after weeks of hard work and planning, we can finally debut the secretive project we've been teasing. Introducing Alien: Covenant - The Unofficial Animated Series!

This project has been a join effort between myself and forum member and resident animator Jason Cardona, but many of you will know him by his screen name, Centauri. Jason and I have compiled a ton of theories and speculative posts made by fans of this community and will be bringing them to life through animation! For more on the series, keep reading!

What is Alien: Covenant - The Unofficial Animated Series?

This series is a fan appreciation initiative. We are formulating webisodes based on the theories YOU post in our forums! We decide on a given topic, like for instance, "what happened to the Deacon on LV-223" and then we research and compile as many points from as many fan theories as we can and formulate a coherent plot. From there, Jason produces storyboards for the concepts and then animates them!

You, the fans, create the stories. Your posts in our forums and news articles are what fuel this series. The focus of this series is to bring to light the many engaging and thought provoking concepts members of the Alien fan community have come up with while awaiting Alien: Covenant!

Where can I watch new episodes?

I have opened up an official page here on, located at: where fans can view the latest episodes and find links to forum topics and other resources related to this series!

[Watch the first Episode HERE!]

When will new episodes be released?

Our schedule is currently set to release a new episode on the first of every month for the next 5 months. Each episode will factor in a number of fan theories to bring something new and exciting to each installment.

The episodes are also non-linear, meaning they will not follow a specific order. Each episode will address different theories.

How can I get my theories featured?

Simple, post in the forums! We read hundreds of new posts daily. Share your thoughts and speculations and you might notice your theory featured in a future episode!

Is this an official production?

No. This series is not endorse by, or affiliated with Twentieth Century Fox. This is a strictly, 100% fan produced project, inspired by the Alien and Prometheus films.

This series is also NOT monetized - meaning it is completely free for anyone to view and we do not earn any revenue from your views. 

This also means Jason is donating his free time and resources to bringing these episodes to life, and for that we thank him tremendously!

Can you support the project in other ways?

Yes! Though, not directly supporting this specific series, you can pledge your support for Jason and his future works! Jason does have a Patreon page set up where by fans can donate to help support Jason's work and aid in the maintenance and accumulation of necessary hardware and software required to create films and mini series like this one.


This has been a project in the making for some time now and Jason and I are extremely thrilled to unveil it to you today. Going forward we look forward to creating new episodes and new series based on what questions and answers Alien: Covenant provides! As long as there are fans willing to discuss and analyze the many questions Ridley Scott has presented to us, there will be room for more episodes in this series!

As always, feedback is greatly appreciated so feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments section below!

The Alien franchise is taking a dramatic turn at 20th Century Studios, now owned by Disney. Currently there are two major Alien projects in development - a new Alien TV series by Noah Hawley and a new, stand-alone Alien movie being directed by Fede Alvarez. Both of which will be taking the franchise in a new direction - moving away from the Alien prequel direction Ridley Scott set out to pursue back in 2012.

If you're a fan of Alien / Prometheus and would like to discuss Alien: Covenant and its upcoming sequel with other like-minded fans, be sure to join in our Alien: Covenant forum! Ranked the #1 Prometheus forum back in 2012 and reigning as the web's top Alien: Covenant fan site, it's a great place to discuss the upcoming Prometheus sequels, dissect details from every trailer and engage with other fans just like you.

The only Alien movie I've ever seen is Prometheus, but this is a damn good job on the animated series! I'll be watching these episodes from now on.

FacehuggerMember152 XPMay-01-2017 12:33 PM

This is awesome! Always wondered what became of the deacon, now I will find out :)

I wonder if the deacons fate ever will be explored in the future? Can almost hear Ridley saying "the question no one ever asked, what happened to the deacon..."

Dark Nebula

XenomorphStaff1217 XPMay-01-2017 12:34 PM

This is really well made, I love it.

Can't wait to see more.


PraetorianMember3378 XPMay-01-2017 12:36 PM

So much work! Congratulations! When I had watched his Terminator project, I felt that he would create something special in our Alien Universe. Thx!


OvomorphMember35 XPMay-01-2017 12:44 PM

Brilliant! If you keep the influences strictly to Alien and Prometheus without ever including the Cameron launched franchise(s) you have mined originality and gold!


OvomorphMember12 XPMay-01-2017 12:47 PM

Jason you know how much I love your work, you have an utterly amazing talent, this project is the perfect showcase for it.

I have the feeling it could lead to so much more for you. Sir Ridley, FOX are you seeing this?

I always wanted to see little D-Can again, so thanks!

Can't wait for more...

OvomorphMember16 XPMay-01-2017 3:10 PM

This is insanely amazing! Both the idea and the result. 

It's like a gift I never even knew I wanted, and it's awesome! I was also curious about the deacon. And now again after the ending of the episode. 

Congrats and thank you!


PraetorianMember2861 XPMay-01-2017 3:22 PM

very well done, beautiful illustrations 


DeaconMember10416 XPMay-01-2017 6:31 PM

Great Job, have to applaud this work especially how busy you both would have been with other things...

I could pop down a short story that could maybe be used as a Comic ;) 

Think we can get a team together, i certainly can help brain storming of ideas ;)

This is a great job guys, i love the Mural...

I was going to finish off my Prometheus re-write where we indeed get to see whats behind the Prometheus one... and it was a little like some of those frescos in this Animated Effort buy you guys.

To Jason and Chris a well done, beautifully made, slow burner.



EngineerAdmin23379 XPMay-02-2017 7:34 AM

So glad you all enjoyed the first episode and the concept of this series! As Jason mentioned, you guys are the DNA of this series, it's a heartfelt thanks for your commitment to this community and an appreciation for your ideas. 

Can't wait to show you guys episode 2!

....and let's see how long til Fox screams copyright infringement.


FacehuggerMember143 XPMay-02-2017 9:17 AM

Wow thats just great! Keep up the good work! The idea behind the series is just awesome :)


OvomorphMember40 XPMay-02-2017 10:36 AM

I wonder why and how did the Deacon go or go to reach the green crystal, a sixth sense?

3davids and a xenobaby

OvomorphMember12 XPMay-04-2017 7:14 AM

Bloody great~!


PraetorianMember2861 XPMay-22-2017 4:29 PM

REALLY looking fwd to Ep 2!!

In the meantime, been busy with a short-story tie-in to ALIEN: Manticore where this Ep was given much more than a mere 'nod'. :)
It's almost finished, and I anticipate getting it converted to PDF and installed on Google Docs, as well as Scribd so folks can download and read it at their leisure.

It IS a stand-alone story all by itself, but without the existence of this Ep and the talents of you guys behind it, my story would have far less depth.

In short, the short-story exists because of this Ep. :D

Also, will be mentioning you guys in the Dedication, of course.


OvomorphMember52 XPJun-11-2017 1:55 PM

More episodes please! Great work!


OvomorphMember66 XPJul-25-2017 10:58 PM

so good - when will episode 2 come ?
