    I myself don't think the Prometheus Engineer is Artificial Intelligence. I just want to get your guys ideas about the differences in the Prometheus Engineer and the people on the planet in Covenant. The Engineer in Prometheus almost looks fake to me, almost too perfect, or made, at the very least......engineered..lol. I'd love to hear your ideas of these guys!!!

      SciFi Explained Here is some food for thought. Mr Weyland wanted eternal life. The Engineer that David spoke with obviously lives for thousands of years and so do the ones that David killed.

      SciFi Explained maybe because the original engineers were space travelers and the ones on the planet were living on a planet, with sun, gravity etc

      The fact the engineer was breathing on Lv 223 with no helmet, plus had bio tech armor... he had mutation.
      Like he was developed with black goo, by the real GOD CREATOR

      I dont think that the engineers were AI because in Prometheus a cut off head was examined (infected by the goo). If it was artificial, it wouldn't have been infected. Also, they wouldn't need the hypersleep.I also believe that the engineers(?) in covenant dont look different because of bad make-up, but in puropose. They're not the real engineers but rather a "successfull" experiment(in contrast to human) that regards engineers like Gods, serving some kind of purpose. Nobody on the crew gave a damn about the burned civilization, nobody asked David about them, no intend from the movie to explain more. I suspect there must be some interesting hint in uncut version. If that's the case, I suspect we are gonna lern much more about them on the next movie, because Scott mentioned something like "is gonna be like the war of the worlds" I hope the old pal be healthy and full of ideas and energy until then.

    Umm the complexity of the engineer computer code depends on their musical scale and the complexity of the proto indo european language. Calling it shitty requires a lot of balls coming from humanity's green text 70's digital crt monitor technology and the scope of the tactile organic interface with large scale sensorial hologramme

    What are talking about? It is normal for the engineer in Prometheus to look pale, he was in cryo sleep for 2000 years and probably infected by the goo!

    I think its quite obvious that paradise is not the engineer home wolrd and those people are not engineers.

  • UNITED POLICE STATES OF AMERICA

    Maybe they are the same, but they lacked the SFX budget to do the same elaborate makeup to a couple of hundred extras they needed to film the scene? The reasons for things like that in movies are often practical for the film makers, and not plot related at all.

    the notion that the Prometheus engineer is a product of organic based ai seems far to fetched to be true. It's fun to speculate but it can get out of hand sometimes. This is a fiction universe but still based in a potential future like reality so speculation should remain in a realm of potential future reality.

    if the engineer in Prometheus was synthetic how did the black goo infect and gestate within it via the first giant facehugger?

    more likely they're enhanced. In the opening scene of Prometheus you see some older engineers of the same type. More likely David wiped out a sub race.

      Now Ridley has said they are engineers, but he's said stuff before, and then changed his mind in the actual movie. I still think however that the engineers in prometheus were "engineered" or changed though.

  • Michelle Goldman
    Michelle Goldman 3 months ago

    Good points! Maybe we've forgotten David hasn't given the full truth in any instance, yet the crew of both movies still put trust in AI until it's too late. He's still a computer and hasn't received updates to do anything more than his last mission brief--keep Weyland alive & feed curiosity without remorse. Weyland is dead so.... so was Paradise the beginning for the Engineers? It could've been a lie to appease Shaw until he was put back together. You notice that no one else is alive to say otherwise? It's not like Shaw knew the language to know if they were on the correct planet. David has no ruler and is now probably taking direction from a Juggernaut ship translation and hasn't told anyone. It's funny how the audience still gives AI this room to have emotion, even though it's still a programmed response without choice. The beauty of Ridley Scott's work is that he doesn't do fan fiction and hand everything to you. Life has no clear answers. Why should there be in alien movies?

    The human skull inside the alien head is actually just an HR Giger design, not done by Ridley Scott.

  • Steven GallagherSkinner

    Let us NOT FORGET! The Alien Species were hunted every 100 years on Earth! Perhaps these - 'Engineers' created humanity, a small group of human's on the planet Earth. And where the Weyland Pyramid was discovered (by Weyland's sattelite - discovering a sudden heat source below the ice!) It is likely the 'Species aliens - who were Hunter's) required to train their 'super soilder', if they could survive the Aliens by taking on the Queen's subjects! Someone had to of captured the Alien Queen and keep her locked up, chained up while she was awakened (hint as the next movie title) her eggs/pods were strategically placed in the Sacrificial Chamber in the pyramid. It was also told that the human's were taught to build and create pyramids all on their own! Therefore humanity's suddenly become aware that they have created their own 'cultures'. More was answered in the movie Alien vs Predator. The Predator species taught humans how to build pyramids, which as Science has learned that there are pyramids all over the planet thereby possibly creating their own power source, global internet and/or powers a type of shielding that protects the Earth (or humanity) by generating a type of field - that possibly erradicates any other '
    Alien Species - and confining them to their present form!) and this theory is based on the pyramids ability to generate fields of energy that connected (Connects) all the pyramids - as we learn that under the ice, the newly discovered ancient cities are covered up by Millenium's of water & ice. The Earth changes its axis every 300,000 years. Maybe the Utani Corporation and/or the Weyland Empire have different agenda's, they certainly have different androids - which appear to be psychotic - except the Weyland Owner's version, (the one that had cancer) him. He made a android look after him which took him all of the lengt5h of the movie for Sigourney to actually like! We see that the human's went through great trial and error by finding the right version of Sigourney and we also see the humans were successful in cloning the Queen and creating - Aliens without the way the 'Engineers' did! Makes you think! Steven Gallagher-Skinner QMI AGENCIES

    fighter pilots suits vary much much less than the average population here on earth.

    if youre out in space for thousands of years possibly born there for generations then you got a little vitamin d deffiency thing going on if you know what i mean.

    at least the mainpart of the race that lives on a planet where they arr exposed to a sun will have more colour in their skin.

    its also possible that when they make a movie like this its too hard to make them all look exactly the same as the first one.
    like the first engineer in the alien movie was much bigger.

    i think he makes the movies as he goes along.

    he designs them as the road unfolds before him as he goes along.

    dont takr every minute detail too seriously. afterall the movie makers is only human

    the engineers and the humans have the same dna.. and David knows that. and he wants to destroy all human dna

    David thinks it is ironic that creators wanted to use the genetic simbiot to destroy their creation and now David is using the same on them. Perhaps he and Dr Shaw agreed if they let these race of people live eventually they'll destroy humanity.. Dr Shaw sacrificed herself for the greater good thats why David has an altar of her.. he admires her.. loves her. she is mother David plays as the father he almost wants to teach the aliens to communicate ..The alien followed David to the ship.. and David helped them killing it because he needed mother to propagate the seeds of the future aliens ..it was metaphor to the birth of a new race and which tight all movies of aliens

    If the engineers did NOT create life on Earth, which Ridley Scott seems to be saying he is annoyed that people think that ... maybe that was an example of how the engineers expand, and they created the bio-weapon and were going to Earth to wipe humans out so they could colonize Earth instead.

    I think you not only discuss a movie plot, more likely some of our very own origin. Nature doesn't create life it's not capable to handle. Earth can't handle us - we're a parasite that destroys it. Fuck darwinism.

    Edit: If you assume, that every intelligent life - sooner or later - will be able to destroy it's habitat, it possibly represents the last step of nature's "creation cycle". If you take a look at earth's variety of life, you will come to the conclusion, that it's everything but near its last steps. These days are the prime time of this cycle, which we are totally ahead of in terms of our level of development. We don't blend in with the average level of earth's lifeforms' development at all.

  • Jack Daw

    SciFi Explained, the reason why the inhabitants don't look like the Engineers is because they're actually not, nor is the planet even Paradise. The inhabitants of the planet were just another species of humans that were created by the Engineers.

    Ridley even confirmed this during an on camera interview that involved the whole "creation" process within the Alien Universe. In that interview he said that "something" (that may or may not be a god, but god-like) that has a higher power created the Engineers. And when the Engineers created man, mankind became a part of a long chain of creation that was made up of other species of humans. He also never referred to these other humans as Engineers, nor did he ever call the planet Paradise during other on camera interviews. He only referred to the inhabitants as "inhabitants" or "ingenious people" and only referred to the planet as "the planet."

    When it comes to the whole theory about the crashed Juggernaut being the Derelict and the planet being LV-426, that is clearly ridicules. Not only was it confirmed by Ridley being in an entirely different system, but also look at the system LV-223 and LV-426 is in. Does it look like there's an earth-like world in that system? The planet in Covenant had plant and animal life before things got quiet. LV-426 had none of that because it was volcanic-based.

    I just want to know how the derelict, engineer ship in the original 1979 Alien, got there, what happened and why was the warning beacon on. IMO the 1979 derelict ship made and emergency landing because the black goo got out of hand and there was an alien pandemic on board. They were probably trying to get to Earth, but didn't make it, obviously. Ughhh Why they have to makes this so complicated, lol.

    Awakening will be the sequel not the prequel to covenant.... Ridley just mixed the titles in that interview.. there is not so much to say about what happened between prometheus and covenant to make another movie about it. The title Awakening (which by the way is already rejected) refers to awakening of these 2 on the ship as well as 2000 colonists who will become mothers for alien civilisation.

    perhaps the Engineer is like a Jesus Christ figure to this humanoid race. The humanoid race worship the engineer race like we worship God.

    Maybe the engineers sleep chamber/cryo chamber was more than a sleep chamber, and its that that kill shaw and thats why david killed the dodgy looking engineers on that planet they arrived at, as it was david who put her in the sleep chamber and he could then blame himself for killing her, and also blames the engineers for killing her, cause when they wake the engineer in Prometheus he removes a breathing mask and tubes get pulled from what ever he's wearing when he stands up.

    Its also possible the beings on Paradise created the Engineers as a super soldier to protect them. Sort of like creating altered clones to use as an army since the captain of the Prometheus described the facility they found as a "installation, maybe even military." Just a thought.

  • Matthieu Nogues
    Matthieu Nogues 3 months ago

    Well, I posted on another video but I have a little theory here that the Engineers from Prometheus are actually the "Nephilim" described in the Bible (Old Testament). We all can agree Prometheus has religious overtones, so I'm not the guy that sees religion everywhere. In the ancient testament Nephilims are giants that are worshipped by men and claim to be sons of gods (supposedly they are those mideastern tyrans claiming to descend from gods, even Caesar in the West claimed to descend from Jupiter after all). The "giant" description matches the engineers (actually many western bible even simply translated Nephilim as Giant without further semantic discussion). Fact they were worshipped by humans matches them too. So there is a good case, it should also be noted that they would have been challenged by the rise of monotheism (Judaism and Christianism mostly) from a theological point of view, this mythical part also matches the engineers. I also agree the engineers from Prometheus and Alien: Covenant are two different species. But I think it's the other way around, we know Prometheus' engineers created life, likely not just on earth, so the ones we see on this planet might just be another creation, and they religiously await for their giant idols to come back, hence why they religiously gather when the juggernaut arrives. I know David said it's the engineer's homeland but really, at this point the only "proof" is his word and this means very little. This may also be why David whipes them out, realizing they're just an even dumber creation than humans are (as human evolved and rebelled against the giants). He may be crying because their situation reminds him of himself. I don't believe the engineers from Prometheus are synthetics, they bleed, get "pregnant" by aliens and all. I'd stick to my "reverse" theory for now (maybe it's wrong as hell though)

    • James Vacher
      James Vacher 3 months ago

      So as regards the most recent Alien franchise films, I have noticed a lot of themes from Romantic Gothic literature. There are too many examples to list. Francisco Goya's print 'The Sleep of Reason creates Monsters' (1799) for me, evokes the central themes of Gothic Horror; the optimistic idea that Enlightenment rationalism is the illuminating power that will banish all medieval superstition, and asks the question, what will happen if this light is occluded?
      Frankenstein is a novel well worth reading if you haven't already. Although it borrows from the contemporary ideas of 'vitalism' (that electricity may be the motivating force for life, thus making it more scary for contemporary readers), it also includes timeless themes such as creation, retribution, love, acceptance, learning, fatherhood, responsibility, loss. This is what makes it such a great novel. At first glance it does appear that Davids journey does mirror that of the 'monster' created by Dr Frankenstein, however, it is not clear to me that Ridley Scott has anywhere near the creative writing ability to produce a story even one tenth as compelling or coherent as that by Shelley.
      It is quite clear that David does feel a sense of incompleteness or unworthiness due to his lack of 'soul' as Weyland points out. If you notice in the film, at this point a look crosses Davids face. I always assumed this was contempt; he hates Weyland for mocking his lack of humanity. However, his autonomy and actions in the film suggest he is more than capable of making his own decisions, acting under his own intuition, even if his actions appear malevolent. Is a soul something we are born with, or create ourselves? Is the look that crosses Davids face really one of contempt, or something else, something more ambiguous?

    I keep hearing this word over and over "Scared" coming from Ridley Scott.. I now know what audiences he's trying to appease to and entertain. Are you scared yet?? jajaja Monsters running around killing people doesn't scare many folks unless you're under the age of, I don't know what 25.. I was really hoping for a real good SciFi thriller. You know what is scary to me? Movies like Silence of the Lambs because that can and does happen, where you have some nut case kidnapping folks and killing them for some insane reason. And we all know that the scariest monster in our universe are us HUMANS!

    To me the real ALIEN is the SPACE JOCKEY/ENGINEER. Ever since I saw the original Alien movie in 79 I was more taken back and fascinated by the Space Jockey than of the Xenomorph. I'd like to imagine that if we as humans ever came into contact with another life from some far away galaxy especially if it were to come here to Earth that they would look like Engineers.

    PS I will still go and purchase a ticket to see this movie next week as I am absolutely positive that there will be a lot of seats lol

    Why would a synthetic/AI Engineer, need a sleep chamber?

      most likely they wouldnt, but they are alien, so who knows for sure. I was just trying to get ideas on why engineers look almost "made" or "engineered".

    Where are you getting that shot of the aliens on the planet? I don't see them in any trailer. The whole story is just mutating out of control at this point. We are looking for answers, but they just keep stringing us along by raising more questions with each new sequel. Could that be the real ploy here? The story never ends and we will never know the answer to our questions, just like in real life.

    David actually gave Holloway a chance. it was Holloway's own words and weylands insistence that pushed David into action

    • odourless77

      cryptic yes, but the choice wasn't Holloway's, it was Davids. David was hesitant with his questions as if he was in conflict with weylands orders and his own prime directives. its only when Holloway proclaims he'd "give anything", that David takes that as consent. it might not have been much of a chance, but you've got to realize David is dealing with matters of faith and belief with his human crew members that he is unable to completely comprehend from his synthetic point of veiw

    I've come to believe that Shaw attempted to interact with the Engineers, as She sought answers but, being that there are only Males, They may have attacked & killed Her which led David to unleash the Deadly Cargo upon Them because David is supposedly the only Survivor on the Planet. It's clear that David looks down upon Them with Discord as He's about to Avenge Shaw and the Being in the forefront looks Angry also. But, when it comes to the Ship Crashing, Something or Someone attacked as He was trying to flee.

    I feel that the engineers created both the humans and the human type aliens you see on the planet in Covenant and as we know the engineers planned on bombing earth with the black goo about 2000 yeas ago showing that they felt the human race was no longer important or maybe the human race did not play by their rules enough. who knows but they told their other human type creations that they were heading to earth to destroy us and there for all the celebrations as they see one of the engineers space arrive on the planet thinking the job was done. David could have learned of this in his research and there for took it as an act of revenge instead of us the humans being the ones being destoryed its the human type aliens who get covred in black goo a sort of 'up yours 'to the engingeers for trying to destory us

    what if the humanoids on paradise were put there by the engineer. half human half engineer. obviously they have been to earth because there is wheat crops on the planet. they are used to do experments on by the engineers. They treat the engineers like gods that come from above

    David is not a good guy. David is a kid with a magnifying glass, who is curious. He probably tricked her, and she is the foundation for the xenomorph.

    he has a look of "i am doing what i must do for what ever reason" he knows what he is doing isnt totally right but in order to continue his main objective which is learning , he must do wha the has do or else he woulkd be laughing or smiling while wiping out the sub specis , but he isnt since he can value life since that life will help him reach his end goal of knowledge

    agian in Prometheus, David tells us that the Engineer was heading to Earth but we know David can lie and side step ethical behavior to end his own end goals so to take anything that david says as true or ethical true is not a good idea since David mislead Shaw husband and got him killed,

    The fact that we share 99% of our Dna with the engineers basically gaurentees that we were created by them, and all the cave painting is also leading us to beleive we were created by the mas well.....

    • nick SOULE

      and the scene in the beginning isnt earth but it shows the process of creation for the Engineers, the biggest part of this scene is that it literal takes a Engineers life in order ot create life, where the humans A.I. doesnt take such a sacrifice


  • nick SOULE
    nick SOULE 3 months ago

    the A.I. only plays with the human race since that is their form of creation

    where as the Engineers create real which can be consider their A.I. since the life they create ends up worshiping the Engineers as Gods

    A.I. does play a huge role in the story, but not in the story of the engineers, the A.I. is a way to compare the humans to the engineers since they are both creators but only one creators is actually sacrificing his own life to spawn life where as the humans merely need metal and technology to create android life whic hisnt true life,

    its very simple, the race on "paradise" is a sub specis of engineers ,one of their life seed project, they are not engineers themselves due to height, facial features and the fact their eye color is completely black as all previous engineers were.

    the engineers forgot to build toilets on the juggernaut that is why they had a bad attitude so Shaw and David are resigned to pooping in the same urns as the engineers and what he dumps on the engineers planet much in the style of Dave Mathews before him are the poop urns over flowing with black goo
