Perhaps.  But it can still be negated by what you see or didn't see in the movies.  When we had this war with maledoro way back in the day we had our guns loaded for bear with dozens of contradictory things the scripts used vs what was and wasn't seen on screen. 

This was like a 100 page debate, so I'm not going to go into the wayback machine and find them all but they exist.  There is contradictory stuff between the scripts and movies themselves, between the scripts and their sequel scripts, etc. 

One thing I can remember is something as simple as the jockey ship signal.  In the alien movie script Dallas (I think) turns off the signal.  In Aliens earthquakes destroy the signal.  So which is it?  Which out of universe explanation do you use?  The oldest, the more recent.  Do you use the alien explanation watching Alien and the Aliens one watching Aliens?

The simplest explanation is to go what is shown on screen instead of all that background bs that changes between directors word of mouth, what we see in newer movies etc.

It's all make-believe. The only thing that matters is coming up with good drama and a narratively satisfying explanation that doesn't punch plot holes all over the other films (e.g. why the Narcissus was never retrieved or why W-Y didn't go back to LV-426 right after the first movie).

Just sit back and enjoy the ride.

Don't try to be the voice of reason in our fictional universe.

I'll settle at that.

Watched Alien Covenant again last night...

So David created a bunch of Alien eggs two of the face huggers managed to perform their functions but there were more shown in that scene.

What if the "big chap" on the stretcher is actually the remains of the first Alien killed as they try and get back to the Covenant? Feels more plausible that they worked found that site and got specimens than the random floating alien in space idea.

Pretty sure it's just the one from Alien, breh.

You're going to have to accept that the premise of this movie is silly and dumb at best. It's gonna require a very turned-off brain or mental gymnastics to enjoy.

Quote from: xShadowFoxX on Apr 02, 2024, 06:24:32 AMIt would be going at this constant speed with nothing to slow it down. Eventually, it would've been pulled toward some celestial object. It would be far, far from the Narcissus's trajectory.

If it was going the FTL then yes this is a possibility.  If it wasn't the speed of light then it wouldn't be pulled toward anything for what would be an eternity.  It takes our fastest ship now 77,000 years to reach the next closest star. 

Until somebody in universe says that the ships are going FTL or faster (they aren't zipping around Acheron in Alien or Aliens it only takes light 3 minutes to go from the sun to earth...
8 minutes actually.

I have not been here for a long while, since Prometheus and that clusterfrack of a sequel, Alien Covenant.
I don't understand the raison d'ĂȘtre of this Romulus movie, but I am curious enough to see how Disney/20th Century Studios are gonna wreck this one! The unknown cast is already a dead giveaway of the lack of confidence the studios have on the movie, and hopefully Alvarez will be better than Ridley at ACTUALLY making us care about the predictable demise of the characters and not actually make us WANT them to be killed, like that incredibly incompetent and truly expendable Covenant crew!

I am not getting good vibes from the use of black goo to EXACTLY replicate the Xenos that were "created" by David, when we know that the xenos were the result of specific trials and errors that surely David did not leave documented for anyone to see, though THAT could be the only REALISTIC way for them to being able to replicate the xenos, though the existence of this movie creates YET ANOTHER problem for the ORIGINAL Alien franchise, specifically ALIEN and ALIENS!

More than just the gore and winks at the franchise, I will be paying close attention to it's connection to the original two movies, especially how they came across the black goo, how they managed to replicate the Xenos with it, and how the events in this movie did not transpire to Weyland-Yutani being aware of the existence of the Xenos between ALIEN and ALIENS! We all know that even though WY was aware of the Xeno in ALIEN, the colonists were only sent to the Derelict by Burke AFTER Ripley told them what had happened at the Nostromo!

So, THAT is going to be interesting... If any of these questions are left unanswered, I doubt I will like the movie! I mean, "inquels"(sequels within sequels) are an unnecessary addition to the already myriad of plotholes and incongruencies that the latter movies have created against the original trilogy!

If you already know about the black goo, then
Spoiler
the same leaks that revealed the black goo in the film, also said it was reverse engineered via Big Chap so that's how they'll look so similar. It's a strain related to Big Chap, not to David's Praetomorphs.
