Daniels Shoots Xenomorph and Blood is Visible

Tennessee sees that the xenomorph was able to make it to the underside of the ship after take off. He tries to torch it in the engine.


Daniels hits the xenomorph in the shoulder. Daniels lines up a shot on the xenomorph head and is unable to connect. 

Left shoulder shot.

The shots hit off the bottom of the ship.

Right shoulder shot.

Ingeniero nice captures! that is a rapid moving scene.

A much darker yellow-orange than the Xeno's of old

Thank you IRaptus and BigDave. I first thought Daniels had hit some kind of fluid line firing a machine gun into the bottom of the ship. 


PraetorianMember3378 XPAug-21-2017 12:39 PM

Its blood is orange. (Meaning the proto is more human?)

Awesome! :)


FacehuggerMember240 XPAug-21-2017 1:48 PM

Wow good find!


FacehuggerMember140 XPAug-21-2017 2:02 PM

The acid didn't seem to be as corrosive or whatever in the protomorph either.  When it was crushed in the crain claw, wasn't that hanging over the top of the ship that Daniels was climbing around on?  The claw looked to be sizzling a little after the aliean was crushed, but there didn't seem to be any worry over it eating through the ship hull like in the 1979 movie.


PraetorianMember2771 XPAug-21-2017 4:00 PM

Well in the original 1979 movie, the extremely potent acid blood was from the Facehugger.



FacehuggerMember198 XPAug-21-2017 8:16 PM

I think the acid level was equal across the board personally

The facehugger's acid burned through several decks, but, if you remember in Aliens, Hicks gets sprayed with it and it burns through a couple? of layers of armour rather quickly too

It seems to imply it burnt right through and burnt his chest, but it's not shown.

I love that part where Daniels is shooting from hanging off the side of the lander.  It is really epic.  I love it.  What a way to kill a Xeno!  She really made it look easy!  What skill!  

Is this the best Xeno kill of the franchise?

For Close Encounters

OvomorphMember53 XPAug-21-2017 10:08 PM

No. Because no huge, slow moving claw should have ever captured the xeno. They are much to quick, agile, elusive, stealthy, smart to be caught by that. Lazy writing.  Very disappointing aspect of the whole film.    Why be scared, just use huge slow moving cranes to kill them.   Dumb.

hmmm that gives me an idea for tomorrows questionnaire :) 


XenomorphMember1299 XPAug-22-2017 12:23 AM

For Close Encounters that's not the smartest alien, being the first created by David based mainly on the fauna from Paradise, probably that's the reason he is running on all four, like the dog alien from Alien3, even his feet remind me of the dog alien. The Protomorph is nothing like the Big Chap and when the script was written they were well aware.

However the Protomorph is not worse than the "bugs" from Aliens who were running like idiots against the automatic sentry rifles.

The Xeno attacked the claw. That Xeno was trying to fight that claw. I think many animals would try to attack the claw because they thought it might be another animal. The Xeno's not stupid, but was just mistaken.


XenomorphMember1299 XPAug-22-2017 2:27 AM

The Protomorph was no longer bleeding when was trying to break the glass? Did he heal himself?

Was the self repairing specific to the engineers' world or it was something that David added to the formula?

PraetorianMember3381 XPAug-22-2017 7:01 AM

Great point daliens. It did look like the Protomorph healed in a second from the left shoulder shot.

The left shoulder shot wasn't visible when it was later shot in the right shoulder. And, the sentry weapon gif is spectacular. Thank you.

"first created by David based mainly on the fauna from Paradise, probably that's the reason he is running on all four, like the dog alien from Alien3, even his feet remind me of the dog alien."

Yes, this xenomorph (Protomorph in Alien: Covenant) reminds me of the "Dragon" in Alien 3 (below). Another great point daliens.


PraetorianMember3381 XPAug-22-2017 7:13 AM

Great observation I Moon Girl.

To me, it did look like the xenomorph attacked the claw. The organism just had its teeth cleaned by Tennesse's rocket engine and shot at least twice by Daniels, so it did seem a little frantic to move in comparison to the xenomorph Daniels and Tennessee fought later on the Covenant. 

All of the above paragraph makes me feel a little better For Close Encounters once I was able to convince myself that the scene was little more scientific opposed to artistic. No, slow moving crane claws shouldn't be able to capture a xenomorph but this xenomorph was really pissed after the rocket exhaust bath and appeared to make a wrong decision.


FacehuggerMember140 XPAug-22-2017 7:24 AM

My dog will continue to attack the vacuum cleaner no matter how many times he gets shown that it isn't alive.  He will fake jump at it a lot like he's trying to get it to move or play with him.  Sounds believable that the protomorph might have seen the claw as a live threat.

For Close Encounters

OvomorphMember53 XPAug-22-2017 10:56 PM

Thank you for the responses. I never considered the xeno "attacking" the claw. I will re watch scene.  I suppose I never considered it because I figured it would bypass the metal claw to go after the meat of Daniels.   Thanks again!


PraetorianMember3381 XPAug-23-2017 6:44 AM

I appreciate the comments For Close Encounters and thank you for the debate.

Yes, I would have expected the xenomorph to bypass anything but Daniels at that point but it is believable to me once I factored in the hits it took before. In the novelization, Daniels thinks for a moment and gains satisfaction that the xenomorph is moving away from her during the shooting.

Here are shots of the claw before and after the acid bath (see below).


PraetorianMember3378 XPAug-23-2017 7:02 AM

The xeno attacks the claw in that scene. It sees the claw as a serious threat.


FacehuggerMember137 XPAug-23-2017 9:23 PM

Yeah, I didn't have a problem with the Xeno attacking it, especially considering which specific Xeno we're talking about.
