For some reason I can't play the interview. What way does he use the term 'neomorph'?

Just when he's talking about the Alien, a slip of the tongue in how he references it. If I didn't know about them using the name on Covenant, I might not have paid it as much heed.

Some brains on Fassbender. Its an actual scientific term:
Medical Definition of neomorph. 1: a structure that is not derived from a similar structure in an ancestor. 2: a mutant gene having a function distinct from that of any nonmutant gene of the same locus.

Hicks, any way you could possibly elaborate how you know the term was used on the set of Covenant? Was it simply used to describe the alien in the new film?

Well from the sound of neomorph, I think this confirms that they'll be at least two types of alien in covenant.

Neomorph: 1. (Anatomy) an anatomical feature not derived from a feature found in an ancestor, but instead a new development
2. (Genetics) genetics a mutant gene with a different function from its non-mutant equivalent

Sounds like a psycho in a new alien suit.

So my guess is the Neomorph is what the Engineers had planned for our 'evolution.'

I doubt he came up with it. It's probably just the descriptive term he's read from the script.

As was mentioned, 'Prometheus' had some concept art for an 'ultramorph', which was basically just a derivative term of 'xenomorph' (which, in itself, was only ever intended to be generic, not specific to the species).

So, basically, they've come up with something which is meant to be a slight (yet recognisable) spin on the Alien design we all know about.

Which was what the old 'Engineers' script was originally going to feature, don't forget...

i hope we get to see more of the engineers interacting with humans during this film and its not through flashbacks or hologram recordings.
