Re: Alien covenant was pretty great

Covenant is fine when taken entirely on it's own. It just ruins everything else. Somehow in 18 years (thats right. There is only 18 years between the events of Covenant and Alien) David has to manufacture the part of their biology that results in queens, get ANOTHER Engineer ship infected, have it ...

Re: Sentry gun in Hope's Last Day

I know the game repurposes/ rewrites some names, events and one character from River of Pain, but I don't know if it mentions the marine squad from that book?

Maybe someone already mentioned it but it's an obvious source of armaments - for what it's worth.

Re: Travel Times

In the era the game is set (2180s) a ship like the Sulaco can cover 39 ly in 3 weeks.  It took Nostromo (or would've) 10 months and took Prometheus over two years. At speeds like the Sulaco's you could cover the distance from Earth to Pluto (approx 39 AU) in about 30 seconds.  The Auriga (also going...

The only thing in those floorplans that looks about right is the cargo bay.

Re: The venom spiked tail problem.

Not sure but i don't think so.  There wasn't really any place in the Alien novel to address a venom spiked tail.  I don't think it's ever mentioned that it has a tail in the Alien novel.  Alan Dean Foster is pretty non-specific when describing the creatures in that book and some descriptions point t...
