Such Beautiful Creatures link is below.

What does this mean?

I hadn't seen this yet and I wasn't sure if someone posted a link to the new video below.

If the 20th Century Fox video originally tied the flora and fauna seen in David's notes to Origae-6 then Planet 4 may have been the original target all along. The video was later edited to remove the title and implied link.

His lab is dope. I wish there will be an Alien Covenant PS4 game where we can explore David's lab and solve the mystery and stuffs.

Fassbender is just wonderful. Chris got to meet him, lucky bugger.


OvomorphMember62 XPAug-16-2017 11:05 AM

Thanks for the link. The video was a bit lacking in the secrets area!


PraetorianMember3422 XPAug-16-2017 12:30 PM

Correct Thombach. A little bit fluffy in regards to anything we haven't seen before.


PraetorianMember3378 XPAug-16-2017 12:30 PM

Guys, this video is only a teaser. :)

We can find the secrets on the Blu-ray, etc.


PraetorianMember3422 XPAug-16-2017 12:31 PM

Why wouldn't they include David's lab in the VR experience Jonesy?

I'm sure you'll be able to take a tour of it once the Alien: Covenant virtual reality is released.


PraetorianMember3422 XPAug-16-2017 12:33 PM

Can't fault me for searching Ati...I just have to look.


PraetorianMember3422 XPAug-16-2017 12:36 PM

Yes Lilly (Svanya). A gift to us.


PraetorianMember3378 XPAug-16-2017 12:45 PM

Ingeniero - No, no, no! I just said that because you had mentioned that there were no secrets in the video!


PraetorianMember3422 XPAug-16-2017 1:00 PM

Additional release:

Such beautiful creatures.


PraetorianMember3422 XPAug-16-2017 1:01 PM

The issue is that David's studies appear to happen on Origae-6 according to the title flashed.


PraetorianMember3422 XPAug-16-2017 1:05 PM

You're great Ati. I should have read closer.

Please tell me what "Flora and Fauna of Origae-6" means?

Is this an answer to planet confusion?


FacehuggerMember140 XPAug-16-2017 1:24 PM

Not sure if it was in the movie, but did anyone catch this as David went down into his lab? On the wall of the stairs looks like the Engineers sacrificial bowl with cup in it setting on a shelf.  Also, I wonder what he means by the never meant to serve quote.  Is David revealing there really is some kind of sub-programming waiting to be unlocked (to be able to create)? Or is it one of his delusions that he was actually meant to be a god?


FacehuggerMember140 XPAug-16-2017 1:29 PM

And why would it be labelled as Flora and Fauna of Origae-6 if they haven't been there yet?  Now I'm hoping they release teasers like this all the way up to the next movie to keep me entertained at work.


PraetorianMember3422 XPAug-16-2017 1:31 PM

Was David 8's lab and "Flora and Fauna of Origae-6" sent before the Covenant crew left Earth or at least before they arrived on the planet David 8 is on?

Did David 8 send this message from a secure link inside himself to guide the mission to his planet?

How would David 8 film this on the way out?

There are multiple special orders flashed in David 8's message to Weyland-Yutani Corporation.


PraetorianMember3422 XPAug-16-2017 1:35 PM

The bowl you mention above drucea is a lavender-like balm David 8 made to counter the ammonia smell from the eggs below. He convinced Captain Oram to rub some of it below his nose to relax him in preparation for the horror of a facehugger he met shortly after.


FacehuggerMember140 XPAug-16-2017 2:40 PM

Thanks Ingeniero, completely forgot about that little bit. 

Just thinking in text now, I'm trying to come up with a scenario where David would have been able to swap Origae-6 and Planet 4 either in WY's plans, or somehow made WY think they were headed off to Origae-6 with the Covenant ship, only to be intercepted by David as they passed "near" his planet (Planet 4).

The only thing I'm not sure how to place, is at the end of the movie when David tells MUTHUR to head to Origae-6. Maybe the real Origae-6 is Planet 4, and the real Planet 4 or Engineer homeworld is Origae-6.  It would make sense that they would have been able to scan and find a habitable planet, but not be able to detect if there is or was life there already.  This is probably not even close to right but I wanted to type it out just in case.


DeaconMember10416 XPAug-16-2017 2:51 PM

I hope they are not just going to use this as a Easter Egg and no more and that it indeed will link with the next movie.

Indeed its interesting  with all these Special Orders and Transmissions.  I am puzzled to why the video has Origae-6 mentioned?

A oversight?

Is David trying to persuade the  Company that Paradise is Origae-6 which clearly the Covenant is far from Origae-6 and so the Company would know Planet 4 is not the location of Origae-6

So is David hiding where he was on Planet 4? Is he trying to show these Experiments and Life, as what he discovered on Origae-6....   which in itself must mean this Message is sent after David arrives on Origae-6

There are a lot of things to consider, because we know he is off to Origae-6 and it will take 7.5 years, does David want the company to intercept him before he gets to Origae-6?

Why does David not create and experiment on the Covenant and then take the Ship to the Company...

Nope it all appears David is trying to get the company to arrive at Origae-6,  but is David merely going to Turn up at Origae-6 with Tons of Eggs on the Ship?

I will assume  David has a Plan to Proceed as Planned and Pretend to be Walter, and help start the set of a Colony before David then sends such messages, or sends them allowing enough time for when the company can possibly arrive.. that David would have a Human Colony set up..

And then he proceeds to unleash his creations.

DeaconMember10416 XPAug-16-2017 2:53 PM


Daniels and Jacob had been planning the mission for 10 years and a lot of surveillance work etc had been done on Origae-6 and so i will assume Origae-6 is indeed Origae-6

OvomorphMember62 XPAug-16-2017 4:09 PM

Am I missing something? Where is the Flora and Fauna part in the lab video?


PraetorianMember3422 XPAug-16-2017 6:18 PM

I watched the second lab video after posting the topic Thombach...the link is in the comments above...and here below.

See the "Flora and Fauna" below.

Such beautiful creatures.


OvomorphMember62 XPAug-16-2017 7:17 PM

Thanks, but it just tells me the video is unavailable :(


NeomorphMember1541 XPAug-16-2017 8:25 PM

In what video does it say Origae 6. I just saw "Flora and fauna"


PraetorianMember3422 XPAug-16-2017 8:47 PM

The video went private Thombach and joylitt.

I'm glad I was able to get screen grabs before it did.


PraetorianMember3422 XPAug-16-2017 9:29 PM

Now I regret not gathering more screen grabs from "The Secrets of David's Lab: Such Beautiful Creatures.".

One thing that stood out that I cited above was the number of special orders that flashed by (less than a second each) in the confirmation opening the link connecting David 8 and Weyland-Yutani Corporation.

I was able to get one (see above) and the screen below.

There is now a new video without "of Origae-6" in the Flora and Fauna slide (see below).

"Experimental Trials"


OvomorphMember62 XPAug-17-2017 7:24 AM

Ahhh, so someone at Fox goofed up and the had to pull the video to fix it! Funny.


NeomorphMember1823 XPAug-17-2017 8:46 AM

ingeniero, if u mean the olive branch message that I believe is after the events of covenant. in the message is his visual catalogue of experiments which includes daniels and the sleeping colonists when he states something like 'I now have plenty of subjects' or something to that effect.


PraetorianMember3422 XPAug-17-2017 10:38 AM

You are correct ali81.

In the olive branch message he does mention his (David 8) work and then show Daniels while explaining he now has his queen...meaning that the message was sent after the crew arrived.

Please chalk up inconsistencies in my logic above to brainstorming while commenting while hyperventilating in regards to Origae-6 mentioned in the video.

It could also be a stretch that David 8 would have the capability for the sub-space communication inside him. He may if the Chinese had anything to do with it, see here.

David 8's Message to Weyland-Yutani Corporation

This leads me to conclude that David 8 may have taken the Covenant ship down to the surface of Paradise and then sent the message in regards to his lab, colonists, and his queen. This may explain the image above with the Covenant ship on the surface of somewhere.

Thombach and BigDave...yes, looks like a goof at Fox (bummer).

Outside that...the "Experimental Trials" (included in updated video) is too hard to pass over.

2000 colonists, housed in the best technology humanity has to offer, sent strait to David 8 sounds like the ingredients for an "Experimental Trial" least under Weyland Corporate ethics.

Origae-6 may be mind chum (a fairy tale) told to the crew to get them on board for the Experimental Trial of black goo experimentation with corporate in-the-know in regards to the real story on what is going to happen to the Covenant crew.

The crew may have been lied to as to what their mission objective was.


NeomorphMember1823 XPAug-17-2017 10:49 AM

I believe it was kethol who staed in sherris' thread 'david and the burst a 10yr plan', that there were satellites in orbit around the poles that create the giant storms and are part of shield defence (not sure his source on this though I have asked him). regardless of the origins of the storm, the storm makes it almost impossible for david to be in contact with the company while he is on planet 4. also, the olive branch message, sent after the events of covenant, suggest this is the first time he has contacted the company, offering them a piece of his works so to say.
