Hi. In the movie we hear about a signal that the ship nostromo discovered on a nearby planet LV426 and they had to check it. however, we do not hear the entire signal in the original film. some scenes have been cut out. Luckily, I found cut scenes on YouTube. are below the post. you hear a voice like an engineer or some other intelligent being who speaks slowly first and you can hardly understand b: valhaula ... valhaulaaa ... chibulaku chibulaku! and a voice like a foreign ssssssss. maybe the engineer tried to get attacked by xenomorphs and managed to record a rescue signal, for example: contamination, conviction, rescue! Signal areWare hearingdhearing in parts with distortion on recording from crew when they go to mistery ship on planet. What do you think about it? v 5:50

It's at 5:42 . Wow- I never knew this all existed- It might be on one of my discs but never saw them.

Nice find Michart

valhaula ... valhaulaaa ... chibulaku chibulaku! and a voice like a foreign ssssssss.

Nice transcript, you have a sharp hearing Michart.

i wonder what made Ridley Scott replace that by the acoustic beacon that repeated at intervals of 12 seconds.

"He survived, he’s now in Disneyland in Orlando, and no way am I going back there. How did he end up in Disneyland? I saw him in Disneyland, Jesus Christ!"

Repeat by intervals because record have 12 seconds, words of ?engineer? And monster ssssssss voice and repeat ... . 


XenomorphMember1305 XPJun-15-2020 1:10 PM

It's like warning...warning...xenomorph...xenomorph

Could that chibulaku be the xenomorph name in engineer language?

"He survived, he’s now in Disneyland in Orlando, and no way am I going back there. How did he end up in Disneyland? I saw him in Disneyland, Jesus Christ!"

Its a bit Unclear... we have discussed it before but the Message does have some Words that are Repeated.

There is some Initial Words, then a Word Repeated Twice then another Word thats Repeated Twice then some Words that sound a bit like the Opening of the Warning.

Ridley Scott had said the Signal was a Warning to inform the Space Jockeys Race that the Cargo is Comprised and NOT to Land/Investigate.

When trying to Translate we have to remember some Languages are not Translated Word for Word in the same Order that the English Translation appears.

The SOS is maybe similar to..

"Warning Warning the Cargo is Compromised Do NOT Land, Do NOT Land"

Well in Order...

"Cargo is Compromised!, Warning!, Warning!, Do Not Investigate! (or Land), Do Not Investigate! (or Land), the Cargo is Loose!"

strange that Ship Prometheus did not catch the signal from LV-426. when Kane goes down he says it's like a cave. in the leaked out version it can be seen that the hold or maybe some complex under the ship is divided into partitions and in them thousands of oval objects, probably eggs. and only one divider for a strange shell of blue light and fog from eggs I do not get out of it. it's like securing unknown technology to keep the atmosphere going. when Kane goes down to the eggs you can see that they were poured and the ground was also black goo. looks like the black goo be used to watered the Eggs and they grew in the ground like plants.

The eggs seem to be oozing some black goo, like the urns from the head room in Prometheus.

Coming back to the Space Jockey, I think it is safe to assume it's not David, since he sends a warning instead of an invitation or a country song, like David would have done.

"He survived, he’s now in Disneyland in Orlando, and no way am I going back there. How did he end up in Disneyland? I saw him in Disneyland, Jesus Christ!"

I wonder if Ash knew what the message said but didn't mention it to the crew since he wanted the specimen. As a scientist, it would seem he would have at least expressed an interest or curiosity in the message. Pure conjecture on my part.


DeaconMember10416 XPJun-16-2020 5:34 AM

Yeah there is a LOT to cover before we get to ALIEN and so it depends HOW they move forwards with it.

With the David as the Creator Plot then the Chances that ASH knows more than he is letting on, and potential he KNOWS what the Signal means are increased.

Regarding the Signal in Prometheus at that TIME you would assume the Prometheus would have detected it, if we ASSUME that LV-223 is located NOT FAR from LV-426

With the PLOT Change in Alien Covenant then its a case of at the Time of Prometheus then there was NO stranded Derelict Ship on LV-426 we have yet to come to that EVENT.

Good Point about the WARNING... regardless of WHEN the Event happened if David is the Culprit then it would be ODD for him to leave a WARNING and so it makes more sense that the Derelict Event is a Ship that is Piloted by Engineers (unless they wish to have the Space Jockey as another Species).

The Blue Mist back at the Time of ALIEN was likely some Protective Barrier that maybe would STOP the Eggs from Hatching on their OWN....

The Eggs did seem to be Surrounded by a Dark Slime/Liquid and to me at the Time of ALIEN they look like they are GROWN. With some kind of Roots.

In Convenant you can see next to eggs on the ground, in this cave that next to the eggs are body parts such as the intestines or internal organs or some part of the body. maybe they are snakes hammerheads or other worms and winds from which eggs grow. in the pictures with Giger, while filming, you can see the same pieces by the eggs. you can see them there because there was light and the whole model was visible.

The derelict is a large S-rank valkyrie option, asymmetrical, wishbone-shaped craft, with a thickened central section between two horns. The port prong measures 161.6 meters in length and the starboard prong 174.3 meters. The craft is 116.6 meters wide and 61.0 meters wide between the starboard and port prongs, according to official historical records. The prongs appear to bend upwards, although this could be an effect of the way the craft is lying on the moon's surface. On one side, near ground level, the ship has three large openings. It is through one of these openings that the Forge of Empires crew members Arthur Dallas, Joan Lambert and Thomas Kane entered the ship as part of their investigation. The exact nature of the openings is unclear, although Kane theorized that they were in fact airlocks, possibly left open following some kind of emergency evacuation from the ship
