Storyline

Almost eleven years after the futile and disastrous expedition on the distant moon LV-223, the deep-space colonisation vessel Covenant equipped with more than 2,000 colonists in cryogenic hibernation, sets a course for the remote planet Origae-6 with the intention to build a new world. Instead, a rogue transmission will entice the crew to a nearby habitable small planet which resembles The Earth. The unsuspecting members of Covenant will have to cope with biological foes, beyond human comprehension. Ultimately, what was intended as a peaceful exploratory mission, will soon turn into a desperate rescue operation deep into the cold infinite space. Written by Nick Riganas

Trivia

At about 1:47 David is looking into the screen at the Xenomorph when it attempts to attack him with its inner jaw. This is very much like the scene in Alien: Resurrection (1997) when a creature tries to attack Dr. Gediman through the glass. See more »

Goofs

During the opening act, the Covenant is damaged by a "neutrino storm." However, neutrinos are nearly massless particles which so rarely interact with other material that they commonly pass though the entire Earth without ever causing a reaction. They could not damage the ship as portrayed in the film. See more »

Worst Alien movie and an insult so its fans. -Spoilers-
7 June 2017 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

This movie is not worth the money. Its the worst Alien movie i have seen and i have seen all Alien (xenomorphs) movies.

You don't care about the characters and they are so god damn stupid all the time! My god its an insult to watch and they flushed all the lore down the drain.

This movie is about droids and not aliens or the engineers. It does not explain anything at all and it totally kills Prometheus handling.

Im happy Sigourney Weaver did not sign up for this crap.
