Takes place around the same time as Prometheus.



Omg!  :o something told me that "no so far in the future" was more literal than we thought.  :-X

Also, I wondered what the surprise will be... That David didn't create the Alien or something ???


Nightmare Asylum

Yeah, definitely looking like this project is going to be retconning David as the creator, I guess.

Local Trouble

Maybe they'll come up with something even worse though.  Like maybe Peter Weyland personally created them or some shit.

Well the show is still a prequel.  :laugh:

I wonder what the Earth of the Alien universe will look like at the end of the 21st century. We get a little glimpse in a Covenant deleted scene of what it looks like in the early 22nd century.



It's not canon anyway, and has no relevance to this project, which makes me very curious to learn if ti's going to be 'Used Future', like the original Alien, or more like 'Everything Is an iPod in the Future' , like in Prometheus.

Retconning David's story... is f**king lame.

That plot about the young girl with superstrength becoming "leader of the hybrids!" sounded like lame Young Adult tier shit, too.

This all feels like it's dead on arrival.

People will still wax philosophical to defend it.

I'm still gonna roll with this for now and give it a shot and hope for the best, but I'd be lying if I said today's news wasn't pretty disheartening. Both in terms of retconning Covenant, and in terms of putting the Alien here on Earth before the events of Alien.

Well, we lived through AvP 2004, we're gonna live through this

Its either not going to have the Alien in it as we know it or this series is just going to exist exclusively in its own continuity.
