Despite the lack of an Alien: Covenant teaser trailer this evening, fans looking forward to Ridley Scott's Prometheus sequel have been treated with something else - more Alien: Covenant movie set photos! Unlike the last batch of photos, which we unfortunately had to remove, these set photos offer a look at the interior of the USCSS Covenant ship as well as some of the vehicles the crew will likely be using to traverse the terrain of the new Alien world they visit.

[Images removed at request of 20th Century Fox]

We also get a shot of the Space Jockey / Engineer chair, prior to its installation on-set:

...And a look at what we believe to be a baby Neomorph - a prop used for the Alien parasite after it has burst from the back of its unfortunate host.

[Images removed at request of 20th Century Fox]

Finally, we also get a close-up look at the mysterious Alien bodies, seen earlier in location set photos, which were depicted as seemingly burned bodies on what looked to be temple steps.

Special thanks to forum moderator Shambs (via a member on AvPGalaxy) for finding these photos! Study these images closely, as we likely will be asked to remove them soon.

Just beat me to it ;)


MemberDeaconDec-08-2016 7:49 PM

These images do seem to show quite a lot..

First... the Covenant Ship must be quite HUGE....

The Neomorph.. or well baby alien... looks more Alien than some of those other leaks.... this one kind of does look like the Mutant Hybrid looking Head that we saw in those leaked props..

I think its interesting to say the least...

Finally the biggest reveal.... the Temple scene...

Its a different one to the others.... the Temple Gate is different..  the steps by the side of the ramp is smaller and the bodies at the top of the ramp/stairs seem to me more piled together.

Interesting is this latest image set clearly shows us Females, and maybe its Engineers?  Prometheus concept had them.

Or badly burnt other Humanoids....

These ones also look a bit like Props... one shot is in day other night so it looks and they same position and so its a still scene....

This raises questions... as if the crew of the Covenant or David wander around these petrified remains like Pompeii then if they are Engineers and supposed to be bigger they would surely made larger props...

if its a flash back.. why use props to show us dead still bodies..?

Of not is the Pouches on the Back with Black Liquid so it seems... these will no doubt have explosives that will then shower them in the stuff if thats right.... these kind of effects are usually used to show exploding blood or similar

Cool beans. Looks good thus far. 


AdminEngineerDec-08-2016 7:50 PM

Muahahaha ;) So exciting!!! Now we have even more stuff to speculate over until the trailer drops!

The close-up shot of the dead Alien bodies, gives us a great look. They don't necessarily look like "Engineers" to me.

David 7

MemberFacehuggerDec-08-2016 7:54 PM

Yeah. They don't have the build of the Engineers we saw in Prometheus, unless there are different classs of them 


The cargo hold is massive. The Covenant must be a long range ship. Nostromo class. Designed for long space flight and exploration.


MemberDeaconDec-08-2016 8:15 PM


indeed its going to be interesting because we have to ask... if they are not using live action actors to play out  moving scene of disaster.....  then why use props for a basically still shot... it looks like they have already tested the pouch with black goo effect as some props have the stuff on them and on the floor.

If its  a flash back... it will be interesting to see how they shoot these bodies with the black stuff.... is it going to show them explode or just show the aftermath so we have a shot of bodies soaked in Black Goo?

If its a scene the crew or David walk around then unless Ridley has made a Scale Balls up... again.... or some other reason.. we have to ask why not use larger props?  As these are Human size.

The Source did say about previous generations of Mankind so maybe these are our Ancestors?   Thats assuming the source was correct and even if so how much has changed..

As far as being Human?

The ones you can see faces clearly have that looks about the Sacrificial Engineer to them... i.e extended back of Cranium and nose.. 


MemberDeaconDec-08-2016 8:18 PM

The build could be because a lot could be female... the other shot from before does show more masculine male figures....

Again they may be some link between Engineers and Mankind... as the Source hinted to me... maybe its a previous generation to us.... or the Engineers.

Maybe they was both sexes and something happened, maybe punishment or war that destroyed all females and only way to procreate then was other means?


MemberDeaconDec-08-2016 8:23 PM

The baby Alien we see does not look Bio-Mechanical at all... it looks like the Deacon more... than any Xeno...

It also looks like one of the Xenomorph concepts from Spaights Alien Engineers... note Xeno not Ultramoph... i think this could be via descriptions of Spaights both drafts i have read.. to be what is pulled out of Watts (Shaw) via C-Section.

This would mean TWO kinds of Xenomorph....

This Baby one that maybe grows to something like the image above....

And the Poster one which looks more Bio-Mechanical but not quite 1979 Xeno.... we would also see the Egg, Face Huger and Chest Buster.... which means maybe the Baby Alien is not part of this Cycle..

Which again means TWO monsters at least..... one would have to come from Eggs? and well the leaked Eggs and Face Hugger are similar to Alien and the concept on the wall too is close.. and also like the Poster.

So maybe we have TWO events... one created by David the other a past event?

I was having a bad day but then just saw this and all that trailer reaction stuff and it got a lot better ;)
I'm so happy people are saying it's gory and scary and the xenomorphs are back. Also a bunch of the press have said it is kinda like alien and aliens, my two favorite movies of all time. The one thing that I read that got me a little upset was someone saying there's a crazy shower scene involving a burster Alien. I guess it didn't totally spoil it because leading up to the scene I won't know who's gonna get it until I see who's turning that shower on.
Trailers and stuff like that I guess can only spoil things if I over think it. Like when the trailer drops any day now and there's a scene with Daniels running or something. When I go watch the movie and she's in danger I know she'll be ok until that running scene. I think I'm babbling a little. It's probably because I'm so excited.
Anyway all these photos are amazing and that baby neomorph or pre bio xenomorph is fantastic. I think this is gonna be a great movie. Reactions so far from the 15 min footage and trailer all say it's scary, gross and has that Alien, Aliens feel to it. Daniels also has some Ripley in her ;)
I keep refreshing this site and looking on the internet for that trailer but I think we got all the inside info we're gonna get for now. I pretty much guarantee the trailer will be attached to assasains creed since Fassbender is the star.
Great update as always, it made my day. I'm so happy I stumbled upon this site acouple weeks ago ;)


MemberOvomorphDec-08-2016 10:41 PM

I can't wait till the trailer comes out. I heard about the screening and how there are multiple xenomorph(chest bursters), and neomorph(back bursters). And one big baddie (ultramorph) towards the end. May 17th can't get here any quicker!


MemberOvomorphDec-09-2016 1:40 AM

WOW,it's getting better and better.

when I look at this photo ,I think this movie gonna be the best Alien movie ever,sort of best of the Prometheus ,Alien & everyone waiting to see a glimps of it in the trailer.

 @Chris by the way still I think this movie connect directly to Alien.

MemberPraetorianDec-09-2016 3:05 AM

We've waited so long........

I'm just filled with emotion right now, sure many of you feel the same way!


MemberOvomorphDec-09-2016 3:39 AM

Really looking forward to this movie,been big fan of alien universe forever

MemberFacehuggerDec-09-2016 4:43 AM

So excited! :)

MemberFacehuggerDec-09-2016 5:27 AM

Kind of makes you wonder if David is the cause of that holocaust. I also so some where that David splices himself into the Alien DNA, thus giving the Alien that bio-mechanical look. 


MemberXenomorphDec-09-2016 6:51 AM



Covenant looks really old tech....dripping water pipes? Feels full circle!

MemberFacehuggerDec-09-2016 7:04 AM

Hell yeah, I love the look inside that hangar bay or whatever it is... looks grungy and dingy.


MemberDeaconDec-09-2016 8:18 AM

"The one thing that I read that got me a little upset was someone saying there's a crazy shower scene involving a burster Alien"

I always had a sneaking feeling that the couples theme would mean a re-use of the un-used Holloway Love Scene Chest Buster.

When i heard the Killer Shower Scene Tweet.... i posted about maybe its a Chest Burster Scene.... a Baby Alien-head Belly Buster would be EPIC.

Maybe it was my comment you came across..

Fear not...... it seems this is not the case... and what the Shower Scene is... well IMO not as good as a Chest Burster Shower Scene ;)


MemberOvomorphDec-09-2016 8:37 AM

If you look all the way to the left of the picture of the Covenant ship, you can see the circular entrance to the ventilation shaft!


MemberOvomorphDec-09-2016 11:41 AM

Can someone please explain to me the difference between the new white aliens, the Deacon, and the Ultramorph? Also, do you think we will see the Ultramorph in this film or the next one? I know we won't see the Deacon ever again (I'm SO sad :'()

New white aliens (neomorphs):

-result of local ecosystem that was mutated by the black goo.

-the liquid caused pods to grow on trees and ground,and when disturbed it releases spore through the air that enters its host through ears and nostrils.

-the creatures can burst from host's back and throat,they  walk in a quadrupedal manner.They are born with arms,legs,tail and spikes on their back that they use to break out of their embryonic sack).

-as they grow, they adapt a bipedal stance, as well as developing a slightly translucent appearance. The Neomorph is described as animal-like in behaviour (more so than the Xenomorph), and has fang-like teeth and a tail.

-have white transparent skin.

The deacon:

-is an accidental result of the Engineers' black liquid that was originally used as a bio weapon as well as presumably creating life.

-Android David infected Charlie Holloway with it, who later impregnated Elizabeth Shaw with a Trilobite after both made love.This Trilobite eventually matured and impregnated an Engineer, whereupon the Deacon developed and burst from the Engineer's chest.

-unlike the classic chestburster  the deacon used the sharp back end of its head to tear a way out of its host,also is born with arms and legs  (No tail),unlike the xeno's the Deacon has a single set of protrusible jaws more akin to those of the goblin shark, where the upper jaw can unhinge and move forwards.

-has blue skin.


-is an unused concept from early prometheus screenplay that was written by Jon Spaihts called Alien: Engineers.

-typically its a xenomorph spawned from the engineer host.

I don't know if it will be in AC,maybe we might see it in the next film.

As Dark Nebula said RedXeno428

However nothing is official yet about the Neomorph description but the comments from some who saw the 15 Minutes of footage do back up something similar as far as Small Cute but Evil Aliens that are Bursting out all over the place...

The leaked photos  before seemed to show a few different kinds of Baby-Xeno like Organisms and we cant be sure which ones or if all appear in the movie.

But it would seem likely at least one style of them will be shown... 

It appears indeed they could be using some new Monsters based of some of the unused Prometheus concepts...

We have not seen the Adults yet... but the White/See through ish Aliens i think would appear like this when adults...

First like the photo i posted a few posts back..

And this one....

And i also came across these Zbrush Concept Fan Art that i think bears a very very good resemblance of how one of the leaked AC Prop Baby-Xenos would look when Adult.

I am willing to bet that at least one of the Monsters will look like above photos... unless the Baby-Neo-morph that was leaked yesterday is the only stage it grows too... which i doubt.




MemberChestbursterDec-09-2016 9:53 PM

That last pic is the stuff of nightmares, damn. If I was Ridley I'd instantly choose it as the primary design for the new Xeno in AC. Actually I can't think of anything scarier than that picture atm.

MemberFacehuggerDec-10-2016 5:45 AM

Thanks BigDave,
You definitely didn't spoil anything and I know exactly what I'm doing when I go on here lol. Even if you flat out said shower scene death of Franco I wouldn't be upset ;)  I am just so stoked about this movie and reflect on previews and images I see sometimes when I'm watching a movie for the first time as a preemptive defense against being scared I think.
Plus if a movie is truly good knowing certain things can't spoil it anyway. I'm pretty sure I tried to find out everything about Prometheus b4 it came out and it didn't ruin the movie for me. Seeing the trailer 4 that one made me look forward to that scene with Shaw stumbling around in those 5th Element type bandages.
I wasn't considering seeing Assassins Creed but now think I might have too since the trailer for AC is definitely gonna be attached to it.
Final thing, i had no idea that there was suppose to be a love burster scene in Prometheus lol. That would have been awesome. I also think this Franco/Daniels relationship is gonna be good. Franco is a great actor as well as Katherine and she has been rising all year and will be a full blown movie star after this comes out. I'm secretly hoping that Fox drops the trailer randomly at any moment because I can't wait to see it.


MemberOvomorphDec-15-2016 12:34 PM

Haha, did anyone save them? Want to send them to me?


update: I've seen them

Dark Nebula

StaffXenomorphDec-15-2016 12:42 PM

I have them.If you really want to see them.


MemberDeaconFeb-28-2017 6:42 PM

Studied the New Trailer and indeed the last post i put here... does look a lot like the Neomorph... the dome at the back of the head is more thicker though.
