Listening now. There will be two new space suits but it's not a "space suit movie".

So I'm assuming the air on Paradise will probably be perfectly breathable then? No need for helmets?  :laugh:

10 years ?? That's 2104 right, so how does a colony ship get that far from earth ?? In 10 years ??

How long did the Promtheus expedition take?

Maybe they got their hands on some of that Engineer FTL tech?

The Covenant might have left earth much longer than 10 years ago. The events of Prometheus wouldn't necessarily have had any influence on the colony ship's date of departure. Perhaps they stumbled upon the planet or David radioed them an invite when he saw they were in the vicinity.

2 years, 4 months, 18 days, 36 hours, 15 minutes.

Well it's probably just a Yutani ship init?

Name's not Japonesque enough sounding methinks.

With regards to the "Ripley" connection, the new date means she would already have been born and would be around 10 years old in Alien: Covenant.

A "no problem of contamination at all" line = a lot of happy people  :D



Up to you to take it canon or not but according to weylandindustries.com, the first FTL-capable SEV (space exploration vehicle) is introduced on January 17, 2034. Best case scenario then : 70 years to reach the far side of the galaxy which is about 100 000 light-years wide.
So the 'far side' isn't what we think (Paradise being in the sagittarius arm in Spaihts' script) ... or the colony ship is an alien ship.

According to the Weyland-Yutani Report, the company merger would have happened by the time covenant tales place.

According to the Weyland industries timeline

1) Hypersleep chambers were patented in 2030
2) FTL was discovered in 2032
3) First FTL ship was built in 2034

So it's possible that the Covenant was launched around 2035-2040 and had FTL/Hypersleep capabilities.

I guess it's also possible that it was launched earlier and was meant to be a slow moving sub-FTL multi-generation ship, but got sucked into a wormhole or some other space anomaly mcguffin.
