In Lost in Space (2018) s1 ep10 'Danger, Will Robinson' , Will Robinson's Mother lures their alien Robot, who has become hostile towards them, into the cargo bay and knocks him into space...

Then a second alpha alien robot arrives to the Jupiter 2. As the second alien robot is about to kill Will, his Robot remembers their friendship and saves Will, hurtling both itself and the second one into space.

The whole sequence reminded me of the final confrontation in Covenant. :laugh:

Also, there's a repair scene in space and the Lost in Space suits are very similar to the Prometheus ones. Surprisingly enough, Janty Yates had nothing to do with it.  :laugh:

Although there is no alien baby here, there is a somewhat familiar scene in the movie Sillent Runner (1972).  :laugh:

Edit: In addition, the design of the spaceships is similar to the USCSS Covenant.

I think I had already shared a similar image of a jockey-like helmet worn by a comic character, but hadn't done much research on the story. This one from here first appeared in the SANDMAN: Master of Dreams comic from DC in 1989. That makes it impossible for it to have been influenced by the prequels, but on the other hand there is ALIEN from 1979. 🤔

Anyway, check the description below.  :laugh:👇

Wish it was anywhere near on par with the original.

Can't believe I only just realised this is a riff on the iconic cover of the original AVP comic run!

Later repurposed for the SNES game.

The art of Alessandro Bavari, and most notably his 2011 short Metachaos, appear to have inspired that WMD sequence in Covenant.

You definitely see the inspiration.

'Human Gyre' in Canaria islands.

It reminds me of the dead Engineers at the plaza

A case of shared influence.

Thanks! I guess the cover represents a character who has lost his humanity after having too much contact with the Xenomorph species. Still it looks a bit similar to an Engineer's pressure suit or that Giger's humanoid concept art.  :P

But it must be just Xenomorph aesthetic, and nothing more.  ;D

Late 90s.

How old is this Aliens: Labyrinth cover? I'm curious for the Engineer-like victim.
