Thanks for sharing, Echo!

The way the short video was edited made it seem like the xeno was the wolf David referred to. The long version makes it clear that David is referring to the Engineers. I'm back to thinking that the Engineers on LV-223 had rebelled against the peaceful ones on Paradise and been outcast.

I wonder if the exclusion of the Shaw stuff is Fox not wanting to give people proof that they dropped the ball?

I still like the film, but, y'know...

this has been a long and on going theory among some of us... im pretty much certain that the Engineers shown in the beginning of Prometheus (both theatrical and deleted scene) aaaaaaaaand the Engineers on the planet in Covenant are the same faction. The Engineers on LV-223 were a war mongering faction which split due to the peaceful Engineers wanting to retain religion with rejection of a technology based populace versus the warring faction who kept technology in their forefront.

and again, what leads credence to this is the easter egg in Aliens: Colonial Marines. fox said the game was canon, including the "prometheus easter egg"... soooooooooooooo the wolf that David refers to is most likely this warring faction.

Like Alien 3. It took Fox ten years to admit they screwed the pooch with Fincher and in return released the Assembly cut.

Yeah, after all the current senior people at Fox have moved on we could certainly see a few new reels come to light.

No, problem, but credit has to go to Alien Prequel Fan Club member Austin James O'Neall for the upload. The version I was going to upload was shitty compared to his. Looks like he recorded it off his Xbox.

I just wanted to make sure the fans were aware of it.

With how he treats her corpse here, I have to question if David really loved her? Maybe he did, but he sure has a strange way of showing it.

He's gone loopy, remember. Fassbender said in the Collector's Edition how he killed Shaw so she couldn't ever leave him. I kinda liked that psychotic angle to his motivation.

Blame Shaw! She rejected Paradise as a gift!

I thought it was simply the fact that he was programmed to be too human, too emotional, and he doesn't quite understand how to handle his programmed approximations of feelings... which is super interesting and makes for a great, dark, creepy origin for the alien.

That's probably it. Too independent.
