Xenomorph Examples by Planet or Platform and Year

The Xenomorph images below were chosen to show examples of organisms and where they were contacted. The Xenomorphs shown in the Prometheus: Fire and Stone comics are included because the story featured the black goo mutagen’s affects on an organism, notes on experiments with the mutagen, and a synthetic/organic Construct, Elden, as well as, Alien: Advent/Terminus.



Unknown Planet, Unknown Year

Planet LV-223, Year 2093

Planet LV-223, Year 2219

Planet 4, Year 2104

Nostromo Ship, Year 2122

Planet LV-426, Year 2179

Planet Fiorina (Fury) 161, Year 2179

Space Station RB-232, Year 2179

Unknown Planet, Unknown Year 

Auriga Ship, Year 2381

Planet LV-178, Year 2497

The images have been reformatted to appear animated (Photoshop) in order to have a consistent look when compared to each other.

I don't get too deep in the weeds about the entire history, but this looks really well put together. I don't recall seeing it in a movie and maybe it is from a novel, but the first  Planet LV-426, Year 2179 image is interesting.

I also really like the over all style of the pics. It looks very comic book yet better and the images just "pop" over all.

It's from Director's cut. Newt's father.

I certainly think the Reveal about the Black Goo gives us a Greater Scope towards different variations of Xenomorphs and Related Organisms.   I also think the Experiments in Alien Resurrection gave us something more to Ponder about than the Traditional Camerons Aliens... Eggs, Xenomorphs and Queens.

What I think is interesting about the Xenos is that there are different versions of it. With this in mind you could wonder what they all must have in common to be considered to be Xenos. This is some thing that the prequels did right, having different monsters.

Correct Leto!

Thank you dk. I adjust 2 different filters, as well as, colors and brightness on the images to bring out the detail in an attempt to give the images a more consistent look.

Amen BigDave and Thoughts_Dreams. The part regarding the experiments in Alien Resurrection should have been expanded more and I'm glad it was central to Alien: Covenant.

We need a film that covers Elden's progress from this point, below.

I doubt they would do any movie based off the Comics and also Movie Canon and Comic Canon are TWO separate things.. well could be considered as such.

HOWEVER.... there is potential with Alien Covenants Sequels.

IF at some point we get from David and the Covenant Ship, to a Engineer Ship either heading or leaving LV-223.  And considering that David started the Xenomorph Creation which is yet to be Evolved.

We have to consider that its unlikely David will play a ONE-HANDED Android from now on... would a Covenant Mission be planned with just ONE Walter Model?  No Spare Parts?

Walter seems to be indicated to be somewhat Organic, we have Elden who is a Synthetic Construct and so IF the Walter Models are similar..... or IF one of the incoming Human Ships has a more Advanced Synthetic that is a Synthetic Construct like Elden then these could give us a avenue to explore something similar to what happened to him in Fire and Stone.

My Alien Covenant Sequel (Alien Ascension) idea had a incoming Female Synthetic Construct that in the 3rd Part (Alien Absolution) went through some changes and SHE.. becomes the avenue to the Bio-Mechanical Xenomorph.

Many possibilities that sequels could ponder regarding Synthetic Constructs and WHAT the Black Goo or a Face Hugger would lead to, when exposed to these Part-Organic AI

Walter does seem to be included in the film as a "bridge" in-between synthetic and organic BigDave

There were a few elements in relation to Elden that were very close in comparison to Walter. Especially the part where Elden comes across a journal do***enting black goo pathogen experiments in a cave environment. I mention this because Walter stumbles on David's studies on tailoring the pathogen in a similar way.

I agree that many elements in comics may be too far out to consider canon. Some of the best elements of Prometheus: Fire and Stone and Prometheus: Life and Death, in my opinion, seemed to make their way into film. 

Type of Synthetic

In the Alien: Covenant novelization, David was an advanced model similar to Walter. When Daniels jammed a nail into his eye, David seemed to have healing abilities like Walter, see below.

“Internal capsulation that had no counterpart in a human body pumped fresh restorative replacement material into the eye. Full ocular reconstitution did not take long at all.”

Alien: Covenant novelization, page 292.

If David been part organic, then I would expect him to be affected by the black goo pathogen but he was not.

If Walter is part organic then I would expect a reaction just like what was seen with Elden's change. You might have nailed it with your Alien Ascension but that is no surprise to me.

Regarding the spare parts....I would assume that there would have to be. The synthetics are tasked to perform risky actions instead of the humans and I would also assume that this doesn't always go right...example: accidents, combat, etc..

The Alien: Covenant Origins novel doesn't say much about Walter other than the extra effort taken by the designers to make sure he was different from David.
