Also appears that David's hair grows in that 10 years.

FacehuggerMember488 XPApr-15-2017 5:57 AM

You did man! You hit the nail on the head. 


FacehuggerMember104 XPApr-15-2017 6:02 AM

This is awesome!

He looks nuts and unstable to me

Imagine how nuts Shaw has gone with him as her friend!


ChestbursterMember907 XPApr-15-2017 6:29 AM

@GTiH I agree...his circuits look fried, his wiring crossed, his IC's disconnected, his .... well, I think we all get the idea.


ChestbursterMember907 XPApr-15-2017 6:30 AM

If you'll notice in the "bombardment" photo, his hair is NOT long. So this bombardment either took place EARLY in the 10 year cycle, or David suddenly found the local barbershop for a cleanup before posing for the pics whilst carrying out said bombardment.


DeaconMember10324 XPApr-15-2017 6:44 AM

Indeed his hair looks shorter, however he could have bit brushed back etc.

Only via Looking at a more HD Image can we confirm how his hair is during the Bombardment Scene.

Or those who have a copy of the Magazine

Probably in a pony tail?

Notwithstanding the hair, this scene is so powerful and evil


FacehuggerMember167 XPApr-16-2017 12:41 AM

So they must reach paradise fairly quickly, drop da bomb, then are somehow shot down.


ChestbursterMember907 XPApr-16-2017 7:16 AM

Of course, shouldn't David be doing something else instead of idly looking out the bomb door?---like say, I don't know...PILOTING THE SHIP????

Or, is one Dr. Shaw involved...? Hmm...


FacehuggerMember167 XPApr-16-2017 11:47 AM


that might be why shaw is in the command chair and sends a distress message. Good skills for someone who cant even read the engineer manuals. She must help david reattach his head then they must learn how to pilot the juggernaut. 

I still say shot down after the bombing, if david was in control, the juggernaut would not have crashed. The engineers must have got a punch in.


FacehuggerMember194 XPApr-16-2017 12:04 PM

Agreed, Babylonxeno. A retaliatory shot is probably what brought the juggernaut down, thus leaving David (and Shaw) stranded on the planet. Perhaps it wasn't immediate, though. Perhaps from elsewhere on the planet (or from the Engineers' interplanetary realm of influence) came a return strike, which then prompted Shaw to attempt to escape her/their impending doom (punishment). But whatever forewarning they may have had doesn't come soon enough, and the craft is brought down. This would seem to also explain the hologram the Covenant crew see of an apparently-frightened Shaw trying to activate the ship.

*Edited for clarification.


PraetorianMember2861 XPApr-16-2017 2:24 PM


I think we can safely assume advanced autopilot functions, right?






FacehuggerMember205 XPApr-16-2017 2:49 PM

Brett: Right!

FacehuggerMember205 XPApr-16-2017 3:05 PM

I actually think that the shot with david bombing the city is from inside the big ship, not the Juggernought, and that the people looking up are not Engineers, but another humanoid race. As for the big ship, I think that it was acquired along David and Shaws journey to Paradise. I allso think that they on their journey found out that the people on Paradise, for some reason must be wiped out.

That little fieldtrip, and why all this has to be done is what we will see in Alien: Awakening.

And I might be totally wrong...

PraetorianMember2861 XPApr-16-2017 3:48 PM

One thing's a certainty, the ALIENverse is going to be getting much bigger...and scarier :D






FacehuggerMember205 XPApr-16-2017 4:03 PM


...And that's sutch a pretty thing, aint it? ;) I am soon going to be out of here, as I don't want any more spoilers. (I'm such a sucker when it comes to click those threads...) One month today for us Swedes... Can't wait...

              "Bees have hives, man" 


PraetorianMember2861 XPApr-16-2017 4:08 PM


Then I guess we will see you after the Curtain-Rise. :) I LOVE spoilers, but I know most folks don't, so I easily understand your decision and the same of many forum members to keep the movie experience 'fresh' for themselves. :)






DeaconMember10324 XPApr-16-2017 5:35 PM

Shaw did look to be in a rush or panic in the Hologram shot, we have to wander why she was humming "Take me Home" but we can not be sure this Humming is from this scene it could be added to mislead us as Trailers can do that... The 10 Cloverfield Lane Raw at the end of the Trailer is a Perfect Example.

Maybe Shaw and David made a Covenant after finding out who Evil these beings are?

PraetorianMember2861 XPApr-16-2017 5:42 PM

Pre-emptive strike? To protect earth as they both knew the Engineers had plans to kill earth.






ChestbursterMember528 XPApr-16-2017 6:11 PM


I actually like that idea. The Engineer strike me as devoted to their cause, like a religion. 

What if Ridders angle is also bout zealots that needs to be stopped.

Even though in this case I'd say it went a bit off track considering the collateral damage on the covenant crew.

And thinking bout it, why the distress signal? Why not warn possible rescuers of the dangers on the planet?

Eine Theorie die nicht auf Etwas solidem basiert ist für gewöhnlich nur Geschwätz.


DeaconMember10324 XPApr-16-2017 6:30 PM

I think we can assume IF Shaw was in on this plan,  then once these beings had all been dealt with, maybe David then breaks what ever Covenant he has with Shaw.

And he is the one who makes the Distress Call so he can now carry on his Agenda against Mankind.

FacehuggerMember245 XPApr-17-2017 8:57 AM


I am full agreement with you, how is he able to hover the ship and stand on the bay doors while the canisters drop...he should have to be at the controls unless they have Shaw piloting the ship...i feel that having it be on autopilot while he does this while standing there is lazy screen writing

Perhaps Shaw made a covenant with David to perform this deed to save mankind on Earth, ...she wont get her answers as to walk up to the Engineers who want Earth destroyed and start a dialog seems illogical and stupid, i could see her coming to the conclusion that this is the best course of action and making a pact with David to do so...she helps him and then everything goes sideways with him as he delves into his experiments and god complex


FacehuggerMember240 XPApr-17-2017 9:08 AM

I posted in another thread about what was in the Empire magazine regarding Shaw-  interesting indeed!


FacehuggerMember355 XPApr-18-2017 8:40 AM

Something still doen't seem right about this...Could David have been looking at a Hologram...?
