This is such a great read and seems to confirm that Shaw did indeed live after the crash at least for awhile...Read the entire thing, it's awesome.

Very interesting! Here are some facts from the article:

A Pompeii-like calamity of some kind has occurred in the intervening ten years...

Unlike prior Alien movies where the crews have been relatively small, the Covenant contains over 2000 people, which makes for a large colonist buffet line for the Xenos to munch on.

On Stage 1, we find the interior of the Engineer cathedral, which has been fossilized Pompeii-style. Inside there are seven huge heads sculpted into the surroundings, so big that only the bottom half of them has been built practically, with the rest to be added in post. We step up huge Engineer-sized steps (each one covered in hieroglyphics) into tunnels on both sides and a door in the center leading to fossilized bodies.

"To see the full-scale Space Jockey set is awe-inspiring. The end of it was lit up, and there were also those signature Giger bio-organic tunnels all around the set. Entering these tunnels we are struck by how ridged, bony and dark they are. A woman is adding paint to texture it, very detailed. A little nook where Shaw is hiding out in makeshift quarters holds a bed and a rack of human space suits behind a plastic curtain. We see Fassbender’s body with something around its neck."


"We head back to Stage 2 to witness filming at video village. We see Katherine and Michael shoot a scene where they’re exploring Shaw’s makeshift hovel. Their flashlights mostly light the scene, along with a few overhead lights. They see Shaw’s helmet. Water drips onto her hard bed and Katherine examines an object. Walter is stripped of emotion like Spock."

"In the creature department, we also see a newer version of the Deacon introduced at the end of Prometheus. He still has a pointy head, but the mouth is more of a butth*** shape/texture. The a*** was definitely referenced, and a beak-like thing juts out from it. It is truly disgusting. There’s also a toddler version of the Deacon that is pretty horrifying in its own way. One of the practical effects guys tells us this is the “bloodiest set” he’s ever worked on.

There’s also a fascinating engineer anatomy sculpture being painted, like something you would see in a medical school. On the wall there’s an Australian spider chart, and we’re not sure if it’s for practical or film purposes. Since the release of the new trailer, they showed a Xeno with a spider-y gait to it, so it might have contributed!"
