So AVP Galaxy...i thought id post this short version of a quick overview of what id like to see as part of the sequel to the next alien movie. I think that Alien Covenant really had some obvious things left in the story and it was apparent that in the next sequel we were going to see he engineers again and the reason was obvious. any way - for fun i thought id write how id like to see a sequel unfold - there's not much dialogue and im not an pro writer however i thought we might all have a little fun reading what I've come up with. I'm also open to any ideas or maybe working with any keen writers whom might like to flesh this out somewhat...it has a huge homage to aliens and i still have some more ideas for the story im going to put in and ill keep posting an updated version of the story as it progresses.
Potential Spoiler Alerts: In past years I've been pretty bang on accurate regarding what would happen , especially with covenant...so if im right about how i personally think the films going to go then i might give the below a miss... anyway i could be totally wrong and this is my own story and if you do enjoy what I've come up with and you may like to throw in a few ideas of you own.....then please comment in the chat - if i like what you add i may include it in the story
(Name of the new colonial ship)
New main key character – Captain Eric’s
An engineer ship comes into view its crew on route to their home world they land amidst the ruins,
they emerge wearing bio suits, and they see their entire race exterminated... they’re armed and
walk through the sea dead bodies... they go to the main hall of records (Giant Heads) and activate a
console... the others explore the ruins...one of the engineers speaks to the console in his ancient
A hologram appears, he sees David and Shaw….the Xenomorph….Daniels...during this one of the
engineers walk through into a room and sees Shaw’s rotting body, another looks at David's drawings
and his experiments. The final member of the group walks into the egg cave. An egg opens and a
face hugger jumps up at him
(Key thing to remember here that will be a great mystery for someone to come back later in
spectacular style – Walter)
Fade in Title
The USMC Morpheus - the deep space marine core vessel cuts into view , 5000 tons of heavy armor, 20 trainee marines and 5 high ranking officers , pilots and deck crew in cryogenic sleep on a return mission to earth.
They're woken and sent orders to stop in on a colony that hasn't been responding to communications on Orgae 6.
When they arrive the colony looks half built, the covenant is in tatters on the planet’s surface lifeless.... the weather is grim and cold – almost
Captain Eric’s – ‘’what has happened here? ‘’
A satellite scan shows the whole area seems dead and abandoned…
Communications specialist Barrel -‘’All communications are dead, nothing but static...’’
A team prepares to investigate both the vessel and the colony structures, fantastic scene of a drop ship
being prepared and all the marines being drilled on the mission, a rag tag team of eager marines feeling
confident in this their first potential rescue mission (super homage to aliens here)
The senior staff speculate that for ‘reasons unknown’ the colony isn't responding and we believe that due
to strong solar activity in the area they may have lost all power due to a solar flare or potential seismic
Eric’s ’All we know is we can’t establish any contact so we`re going down to check in and see how we can
help- this is a rescue mission – no rush hour Rambo’s okay?’
Remember we're here to check in on these people - not to spook them - they may have been without
power for a while however readings are currently inconclusive due to the interference in the planets
Eric’s - ‘We'll be sending two teams - one to the covenant and one to colony - The major will go with the
ground troops and ill go with the team to the covenant ...
The drop ship goes to the planet
Both the colony site and the covenant are derelict.
Livestock cages lay empty (variety of different alien possibilities here) – the place looks like a ghost town…
Both marine teams examine the colony and the derelict covenant
Inside the place is dirty – bits of torn clothing and the odd child’s toy litters the floor
The colony team makes it first discovery a badly damaged and deactivated synthetic - David.
A marine engineer Deke’s - works to reactivate him...
Deke’s - ‘’this first generation synthetic- how the hell did this end up here – do you know how many of
these got recalled…probably blew the whole place up…these things went nuts…’’
While repairing him he a tags a tracking device into the synthetic...
Deke’s to Eric’s – ‘this should keep him order in case it freaks out (exploding shocking/tracking device) and hopefully it can give us some answers’
David wakes, he looks at the marine
David – ‘’thank you – my name is – (he pauses) Walter - may I ask how you came to be here’’
Dekes looks confused as he identifies himself as Walter
David rubs his neck he knows what they've done.....
Dekes asks – your first generation – I have a degree in robotics – you’re not Walter series?’
David – I had my protocols updated and changed – I apparently disturbed people….
Dekes - disturbed isn't the word – I was part of seal team that had to put one of you guys down… it took five
guys and a balderunner to put a rogue A1 down…so tell us what happened here….Walter?
He goes onto explains the colony came to grief due to an outbreak of disease – made them turn on each
other – ‘’quite violent’’ and the survivors relocated to a safe location ‘not far from here, communication may be difficult due the location…
He explains he was deactivated whilst undergoing repairs,
David goes on to describe where most of the survivors would be...
David ‘I can show you if you’d like’
The marines investigate the derelict colony, acid burns and blood stains cover the walls of the facility,
Marine Hendricks – using a tracking device ‘Nothing not a god damn thing....’
Cpl Dekes ‘Eric’s- the synthetic says he can guide us to a location where there may be survivors –
permission to conduct a recon of the area – location looks pretty isolated an open – short trip in the APC’ ’
Eric’s ‘we’ll meet you there – take the APC and well rendezvous in the drop-ship’
Epic scene of the marines travelling in the APC over some rough terrain – visible in the distance – a
structure – what looks like a pyramid –
Dekes – what the hell is that
David – someone’s been busy it would seem
Meanwhile the group on board the covenant are making discoveries of their own...
Whilst there is no one on board and barely any power they attempt to bring the computer and power back
online they meet a very haggard and very battered Tennessee
He explains when they settled the colony the android turned on everyone, we learn Daniels is dead...
(flash back scene)
David's first victim.... During the very beginnings of the colonies construction David made a secret lab in
cave and brought his alien embryos to maturity...he lures the colonist to the cave and the chaos ensues...
David creates a command protocol override that cuts all power to the facility.... He sabotages all their
(Epic flash back of aliens killing the colonist and dragging them off whilst David walks calmly through the
He explains he escaped and has been in hiding for nearly 5 years to but it was too late he freaks out when
he learns the android has been reactivated..
Tennessee – we need to leave this planet now - How many people do you have here
Eric’s – ten here and ten at a rescue site – (his blood runs cold)
Tennessee - get your team out now – they’re all going to die
The marines contact the ground crew... they cannot get through…
Communications are barely legible –
Inside the pyramid
The marines explore the epic bio-mechanical structure
It’s dark and full of moisture – almost like fog -
Dekes answers his radio and a looming David over hears his order – he grabs dekes by the neck and snaps
it– taking his weapon he firs on one of the marines – his armour protects him ..David despairs into the shadows
Capt. Eric’s and his team await the arrival of fly in the drop ship
David appears on a monitor on the covenant... his image flickers – they all gather round
He has a dialogue with Tennessee and tells him how he's left a few surprises on board the covenant.
David - ‘A few friend to play with you – I assure you they must be quite hungry by now’
Meanwhile a small group of marines check the cargo bay of the covenant, as the main doors rise, the entire interior is an alien nest.
David explains further...his reasons for doing what he's done....and closes by saying...
David smiling - ‘I won't lie to you about your chances, however, you have my sympathies...’
The aliens come.
Gunfire echoes through the covenant. Marines fight a drove of the creatures now tearing through the
group one at time, picking them off by dragging them into vents through the ceilings and floors, as aliens
die acid rips through the armour of some of the marines injuring them severely but still they fight on, a lone
marine struggles for survival... his face and arm slightly melted by acid – a one man army - he manages to
seal the cargo bay doors....aliens pound on the other side, he runs to the bridge and meets up with his
team – he an Eric’s fight through the covenant to escape – once outside they all get onto the fire blade
(dropship) only 4 of them make it out of ten ….(;lots of nice death scenes to fit in here)
Back to the Pyramid
The marines decide to track David down... They use the tracking device emplaned on him to follow
him...the location leads deep with the structure. Colonist’s bodies decorate the walls, again the aliens come
(huge fight scene) the marines are all but wiped out bar two who escape and make it back to the entrance
aliens in tow... Back at the hive one of the marines suddenly wakes up secreted to wall, his arms and legs
locked in place...he sees hundreds of eggs and in the centre of everything the large mass of an alien
queen... David stands in the middle of the room also, aliens thrive around him, a face hunger crawls out of
In orbit the engineer ship arrives
Enormous in size it -The ship fires at the Morpheus and it’s destroyed.... The juggernaut 3 then heads down
toward down towards the planet...
Over a radio David recovered he hears the distress they're in... He walks outside the pyramid – aliens
surround him almost protectively - and he sees the juggernaut land.... he looks angry –
Back at the colony - three engineers walk out and progress towards the colony, they are armed...
They look up to the sky and see the drop ship flying in from the pyramid – one of them fires at the ship – its
come crashing to the ground… two more marines die in the crash – Eric’s and few of them left scrabble
out of the wreckage
(Huge part to fill in here – huge battle with aliens marines, alien queen – engineers -not written in
progress – everyone dies but David?)
End film after climatic battle – the colony is destroyed by Eric’s detonating the covenants nuclear core – he
dies setting it off – hundreds of aliens try to get at him.
All the engineers die and David steals the juggernaut 3 ……..
In one of the other chamber lies another engineer – a face hugger attached to his face …
He takes the ship to lv223 to pick up more of the pathogen. And return to earth - The engineer
wakes up and kills David, during their struggle the ship crashes on lv246 the engineer loses control of
the ship and an alien explodes from his chest
David’s crumpled body lies on the floor
His last words … you decide…
