What's your favorite ship from the Alien franchise?5,979 Views8 RepliesAdd A Reply
Which ship from the Alien franchise do you like the most? USCSS Nostromo? USS Sulaco? USM Auriga? USCSS Prometheus? USCSS Covenant? And why is it your favorite?
The Covenant ship, as it's the ship that features the symbolism of Upworth and Ricks, whose eroticism on the ship mirrors the eroticism that David displays when he cuts his hair and kisses Walter; nothing in the Alien franchise beats the link between David, and Upworth and Ricks
Not sure if you're topic is just a title (which we are supposed to avoid) or it hasn't been approved yet, but my favorite ship is definitely The Nostromo. The original ship in the series still my favorite design! Covenant is a close second though, they did an awesome job with it, I think.
Not a map, an invitation
It still hasn't been approved yet.
Nostromo. The entire thing was just huge and lumbering. It looked both high and low tech.
That said, I have to comment on ships in general.
The Derelict. There was nothing like it.
I always imagined it flying with the round part in the back. It took until Prometheus to realize I was wrong...I was so wrong :)
The Sulaco/Patna Conestoga's are just so iconic, and such an epic design.......Nothing says this is a weapon like a ship that looks like a Big F'ing Gun
My favorite is probably the Sulaco. It doesn't look that clumsy and I like how it is arranged with all the guns at the front (if that is what they are). It is the best ship but it is not my favorite alien movie.
Thanks Rick D, I like this topic. There are so many interesting designs of space ships in this franchise.
very hard to beat the original. the look and feel of the nostromo was bang on. the Prometheus and covenant, although stunning in design, are just too clean and sterile for me. I know their custom built for their purpose and r both brand new but I still prefer the used look in the alien franchise.
