The first part of this article covers the 12 deleted and extended scenes found on the Alien Covenant Blu-Ray set. The second part includes scenes that were in either the script, the early test screenings or the trailers. Some information also came from the Alien Covenant novelization from Alan Dean Foster. Not all of the alternate sequences from the novelization have been included here because some of those were Alan Dean Foster’s creations and not scripted or filmed.
Alien Covenant Blu-Ray Deleted Scenes
Prologue (Extended) (4m 56s)
This is the longest deleted scene on the Blu-Ray set. During the film’s prologue there was some extended dialogue between David and Weyland while David plays the piano. David explains what Richard Wagner’s Das Rheingold – Entry of the Gods Into Valhalla is about, telling Weyland that it is about God’s abandoning their creations due to their displeasure with their creation’s greed and vanity, only to realise that the Gods themselves share the same flaws.
Walter in Greenhouse (57s)
There is a short scene where Walter is tending to a greenhouse aboard the Covenant, whistling to himself as he does so. There’s a brief dialogue exchange where Mother tells Walter music helping plants grow is a myth. He asks why she thinks he was whistling to the plants. Mother then tells him a neutrino burst was detected which damages the ship.
Oram and Daniels (Extended) (1m 4s)
After the crew access the damage on the Covenant, Oram tells Daniels that Jacob was a genuine leader and he admired him. Oram orders Daniels to take some time off and “cry it out.” Daniels tells him she can mourn in her own way.
Walter Visits Daniels (1m 30s)
There’s a brief scene where Walter visits Daniels in her quarters (after Oram removes her from active duty) and offers her some cannabis to relax.
Daniels Bedroom Flashback (1m 37s)
The flashback seems to take place in place of the previous deleted scene after Daniels is sitting in her quarters. The flashback shows Daniels and her partner Jacob Branson in an apartment on Earth during a snowstorm. Jacob wakes her up to show some modifications he has been making to his design for a log cabin he’s planning on building when they arrive at Origae-6. Afterwards Daniels looks out of the windows at the snow falling on the city.
Jacob’s Funeral (Extended) (1m 26s)
After Daniels invites Walter to join in with Jacob’s funeral, Walter offers to perform a funeral service. After Daniels turns him down, Walter asks why she invited him. Daniels explains that she’s now alone in a crew made of couples and that she thought Walter might know a thing or two about being on his own.
Ledwards Fall (39s)
As Karine is taking an injured Ledward back to the lander, he trips up momentarily.
Crossing the Plaza (Extended) (55s)

Daniels Thanks Walter (1m 19s)
While in the Citadel, Daniels takes a moment to thank Walter for diving in front of the Neomorph and saving her life. He tells her that he is “here to serve.“ She says there is so much that doesn’t make sense and Walter says he’ll talk to David about it “brother to brother”.
Rosenthal Prayer (1m 6s)
This scene takes place just before Rosenthal is killed. She’s on her own in part of the Citadel when she puts her weapon down and takes her jacket off. She says a prayer in Hebrew and then a Neomorph is seen creeping down a tunnel towards her.
Walter Reports Back (39s)
After having had a chance to talk to David and seen his quarters and Shaw’s grave, Walter reports his impressions back to Oram, Daniels and Lope. He expresses his concern about David’s tangential thinking and lack of maintenance. They wonder where Rosenthal went so Oram decides to go and look for her.
Stairs to Eggroom (Extended) (31s)
The final deleted scene shows Oram descending the stairs to the Eggroom. Oram smells something strange and David dips his fingers into some ointment nearby. He passes it to Oram and tells him it’s a lot like lavender. Oram takes it and rubs it under his nose to hide the smell.
