    I disagree.

    My theory makes sense when looking at the anatomy of a FH.

    Also.... We havent seen how the small FH were created. Only that big fucking starfish.

    DonT make any sense to jump right to the pods containing them with out an origin.

    Not a FH in that clip, the following info is from the sizzle reel that's been displayed to various insiders
    It sits there in the tall grass, no bigger than a medium-sized dog but disturbingly larger than the baby xenomorph from Ridley Scott’s original Alien. It is fleshy colored and walking on four legs, holding its weight like tarantula gifted with the speed and precision of a feline. It’s a terrifying piece of work that’s fresh out of the womb (or in this case, a human spine). It’s also one of Alien: Covenant’s many surprises that we got a sneak peek of during the Fox Showcase at Lincoln Center earlier this month.

    For the record, this critter’s name is “neomorph,” as revealed by Katherine Waterston during a panel discussion after the footage screened. Indeed, the neomorph appears to be borne from the same general life-cycle as the beloved xenomorph, however from the footage glimpsed alone, we can promise its evolution will be even quicker and more grotesque.

    So then where does the facehugger originate?

    Seems like they are skipping them.

    I'm not gonna over think the science this time. Still roaming alien planets without helmets lets me know what kinda expectations to go in with this go round. Unlike Prometheus.

    Thats a good point.

    I am setting myself up for failure already.

    Interested to find out how Fassbender's droid character plays into this.

    Him and shaw crash land on the planet.

    New crew lands ten years later, finds david roaming as the "sole inhabitant" of the planet.... And what looks like shaws dogtags.

    David obviously still has his prime directive + disdain for humanity cause they took their helmets off.

    David been there ten years and didnt notice the spores? Riiiiiiight...

    The eggs are made from humans.

    In the 2003 DC of Alien, Dallas is shown to be undergoing transformation. Brett is mostly egg with that membrane covering his head.

    So there went my facehugger theory.

    That deleted scene with Dallas and Brett and the cocoons was never considered canon cause the existence of Cameron's queen in Aliens completely contradicts it.

    They need to explain the engineers not really interested in the cheap jump scare horror this movie will provide.

    Perhaps that is how queen face huggers are made?

    I dont see the hype in Alien movies they make humans look like incompetent idiots compared to a killing machine that bleeds acid has two mouths and can run on walls

    In every film we never stand a chance

    That's realistic tho
