Why Engineers Used a Flute ? How Juggernauts Work? Mother Juggernaut's Fate - Alien Covenant


  • Added:  Month ago
  • Why the Engineer use a flute to start the Juggernaut?

    How juggernauts work?

    What Happened to the mother Juggernaut?


    Remember, this is just a theory and when I first read it it seemed a little bit hard to believe but when I looked at the evidence from Prometheus and Alien Covenant it actually made sense.

    First of all, the most obvious explanation is that the ship's navigation system requires a flute sound to ensure that the pilot is in fact a living and intelligent being and not to a robot. But because David was programmed with an ability to create, he is able to pass as a humanoid.

    Besides this simple explanation, there is much more to what the Juggernaut actually is and how it works.

    From outside, it is a large, asymmetrical, wishbone-shaped craft, with thickened central sections between two horns, which bend upwards.

    The ship resembles an ancient symbol called the Ouroboros. It represents cyclicality, especially in the sense of something constantly re-creating itself.

    Jugernaut had numerous tunnels that go off to many places. The Juggernaut measured 170 in length and 116 meters wide with 61meters between two prongs

    The Juggernaut had three large openings near ground level between two horns, leading into the interior of the Juggernaut.

    When David opens the door to the big head room he uses some sort of substance that is organic (evidenced by him pulling his fingers apart and seeing those tiny little bits). This substance could be packed with information interacting with the hieroglyphs on the panel which then opens the door. W hen David's playing around with the controls he presses on those little egg-like buttons and they produce sound as if they were reacting to the touch.

    When the crew meets the Engineer If you pay attention to the suit you’ll notice that it's integrated with his body because of the way it merges with his neck. In fact, Engineers are able to create life they are highly skilled in manipulating bio materials, so thier suits are also bio-engineers. For instance, it is integrated with the engineer's body. So their suits are also bio engineered and may act as living parts of their bodies

    That brings up a theory that the ship or at least a part of it is organic and a result of bio engineered

    Probably many people originally assumed that the Jugernauts is a nonbio technology because of the way we build our space ships, cars and other mechanisms. But since Engineers are so advanced in biological engineering, they integrate living organisms in to their spacecrafts.

    That’s why the Jugernaut is a mix of a biological and mecanical components so we can pretty much say that the ship is alive.

    I know it may sound a bit ridiculous, but hold on because it actually answers many question from prometheus and what happened to Juggernaut and the mother ship in Alien Covenant

    That would explain why the interior of the Juggernaut resemble more a living organism than a space-going vessel, with skeletal walls, circular gangways and steep passages. When the Engineer prepares to lanch the ship, it seems like the seat envelops him, and he becomes a part of in.

    When the crew enters the Jugernaut, the texure of walls starts to change as if the ship detected an unknown organism and responded by changing the environment. The crew also notices that something inside the ship generates an atmosphere so it’s possible that the Juggernaut has a mechanism to produce oxygen for Engineers or on organic of the ship needs oxygen itself.

    The engineer plays a flute to activate a part of the navigation system, the sound must be of the right frequency to communicate with the Juggernaut’s bio part and thus activate the ship. This can be a producers’s refence to the string theory that suggests everything is made of vibrations so by playing a certain frequency the Engineers are able to get access to interstellar travel.

    I also noticed in the scene where the ship Prometheus crashes the Juggernaut, you can hear some weird low frequency sounds and it may be just the music but id doesn’t fit to the rythm so if this theory is correct these sound can be produced by the Juggernaut itself as a response to being destroyed.

    Now let’s talk about how the Jugernaut and the mother ship crashed. Yes actually know from the movie that the mother ship was also taken down. when Daniels and Lope leave the Paraise planet, For a few seconds we can actually see the crashed mother juggernauts in the background at the base of the mountain.

    So how did the ships crashed. We know now that they have biological or living components and so when David released such a big amount of the black goo in the atmosphere, some of the pathogen might have penetrated the Juggernaut and affected the organic part of the ship. The Juggernaut was infected and later due to mutations couldn’t function and crashed.

    This is a very small thing, but I had always envisioned the Engineer ship flying "prongs" forward, but the movies seem to show them flying "prongs" rearward. I'm just wondering how many other people were and are disoriented by seeing the ship as it appears to be flying backwards. It's like looking at pictures of a car you thought was so cool for a long time and then finding out what you thought were brake lights were headlights.

    There are references to saturn. Certain customs in mystery religions include a small flute. See the movie The imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus. The lucifer character has a flute that doubles as a life saving hanging prevention tube to allow the user ot breath when choked and it is also a flute. . There is a deep occult reason for that flute

    The engineers ship does not resemble the Ouroboros. The snake (or dragon in some depictions) actually has to swallow his tail (hence the symbol of infinity) and the ends of the ship don't connect at all. I think this comparison is a stretch.

    Going with the theory that the Engineer ships are biomech and that, as seen in Promethus, the goo doesn't seem to actually affect the Juggernaut when it's spilled down the sides of the containers, I wonder if we've got the purpose of the goo or pathogen all wrong. What if the black pathogen is actually a form of fuel for the Engineer ships that keeps the biomech of the ships alive and able to make adaptions and repairs as needed? What if the pathogen/goo was toxic to other non-plant based biologies in the fact that it terraforms and/or destroys their DNA because it's too strong to perform it's original function on weaker biologies than the ships, thus transforming the other lifeforms that come into contact with it into primal horrors according to their individual biology? I don't really think this is actually something they'd consider revealing but it is definitely an interesting thought and possible plot twist.

  • Christien Sebastien

    What if the engineer that killed Weyland and was in the ship is actually not an engineer, but an android version of an engineer. So the engineers created androids, just like we do, which explains why the engineers we see in the deleted scenes don't have those bio suits, yet the one we see in the ship does. It's almost as if those android engineers share in android humans' destructive nature. Something to think about.

    An interesting theory video.
    I haven't seen this topic explored much elsewhere.
    I like the 'string theory' erm...theory.

    The flute is also the instrument of Pan - the devil. Although I think that is too fairy tale-ish, it could hold a more symbolic significance.
    It could also be just sound encryption.

    Also, because David encouraged Walter to create music using the flute (and then abandoned him on the planet) maybe Walter can activate a Juggernaut in future.
    Hmmm...could Walter be one of the factions in 'Awakening'?

    After Prometheus i was hoping for more Noomi Rapace and Engineers, but now i have to face the fact that alien is still just an horror monster splatter movie with a story that has plenty of plotholes and NOT a proper sci-fi movie!! So, i'm sorry Kroft but u are trying to make sense where clearly there is none :-(

    David doesn't need to create anything to blow the flute. He already knows how to use it because he is made to resemble human in all ways, playing basketball, playing piano etc. He learned everything in a split of a second, that's why he can read all the writings/manual on the Spaceship wall and operate the spaceship after seeing in hologram video how SpaceJock operated them. Well, just like we are using remote control to operate machines, flute might be the way to operate the Spaceship.

    Walter obviously was made just to serve human, that's why he doesn't know how to play flute, playing flute is not a creation, is a learning steps, that's how David taught him. But making new song, new instrument or create new breed is creation, only David manage to do that and he hopes Walter can join him too to be the partner of creation.

    im sayin it. Light and sound are the basic materials in the universe, we're all made up of light and sound, so maybe they use a flute as a reference to the idea that light manipulated by sound is how we exist. so ye, flute pilot. as for being a living thing, i see thats where they r going with this, but it looks.. so... stupid. its just a big ovary in 2d made into a bent sausage ship. anyways, film sucks , even in a made up universe people mess things up.

    5:34 — If you take a closer look at the top view of the Juggernaut, then it looks like a Xenomorph embryo. Shudder. The top left side is the head, the bumps to the left and bottom are the spikes, and the top right pieces are the feet. The middle is probably used for reproduction.

    I always thought of the ships as being partially alive. Their very design is defined as BIO-mechanical. That's why I thought the Space Jockey was going to turn out to be a living "pilot" of sorts that was a permanent part of the ship, and why I was so disappointed when they made it into a glorified space suit.

  • Андрей Чепурнов

    I still think that the Juggernaut is not the same as the Derelict. I prefer to think that Juggernaut is not alive and is a built in metal replica of the Space Jockey's Derelict, which has a different shape and is in fact a prolongation of the Space Jockey himself. And yes, I do consider Space Jockeys being a completely different and not humanoid species.

    Cool theory!! The ship may not necessarily be alive (although I really like your thinking), vibration and frequency relating to controlling matter is also a possibility. Matter responds to sound (frequency and vibrations) and could be said to play a part in holding atoms and molecules together. Tesla believed that frequencies, vibrations and energy were key understanding material creation. I might be going off course, but hey, this made me think :)

    The biomechanical universe imagined by Giger is all-encompassing....why wouldn't the the derelict and juggernauts be alive? I always assumed this from first seeing Alien in 1978 - why is it being debated?

    The space jockey technology would be far beyond the engineers copy and paste versions though - inside the derelict, space and time would be suspended, inner chambers stretching forever within a fifth dimension transcending our concepts of linear spacial boundaries (like a tardis....)

    Enjoyed and agree with your theory. Keep up the good work but go back to your original slower speech style....forget these fan-boys and their pet-peeves!

    Great theory. There is a video of why Ridley Scott ruined the Engineers and the narrator theorizes that the Space Jockey grew out of the ship. The Ship is a living organism itself. This is why the floor of the pilot's room isn't smooth. There are pipes. Its not meant to be a walkway.

    What if the black goo is actually an antibody much like every other living being has, something that is released to combat a foreign intruder. A sort of an immune system to neutralize threats or perhaps reprogram them, in the case of this advanced ship, and thus in stead of eliminating a pathogen, you make it work as another part/extension of "it's" body... assuming the spacecrafts are actually alive. This is why the ship was changing so fast from the inside as if it was getting sick, even changing it's color much like the reaction/change you would get in a human.

    The juggernaut is the metaphor of the woman's body anatomy, two legs and three 'holes', the whole movie is a metaphor of the birth trauma ( facehugger = two hands of the doctor delivering the baby violently by grabbing it from the head) .....

    • Georgios Papadopoulos
      Georgios Papadopoulos Month ago

      The engineers run in Prometheus is a metaphor of the sperm run inside the woman's body .... that's why all the movies are claustrophobic. Alien is a title chosen because after nine months we are delivered to a cold world full of light almost 'alien', the deacon has also two jaws a head like penis and a chest like the female genitalia because it is a metaphor of the embryo, in the first weeks you can't tell the sex. By the way 'what's the story mother?'. In some posters of alien movies we see a schism of light almost perpendicular and a man heading to the light, this is also a metaphor of birth, coming from the warm dark place in which we have done nothing to survive to the bright and cold world violently, through 'mother's genitalia', that's why in Nostromo the 'what's the story mother?' has an answer 'I am going to deliver you to the world' and in the end of the first alien Ripley was trying to avoid the birth and the baby was hunting its mother in the 'Narcissus' ship (read about the narcissus theory).
