      Frogman Tempest thank you. I’m glad we both have done the research and know it was a prototype. Even David said his work isn’t complete yet and it isn’t perfect yet.

    The reason the Neomorph exited through Hallett's mouth is because his back was against the ground, and Neomorphs develop on the hots spinal column.

    Ok first off the protomorph isnt a xenomorph because he hadnt created the perfect species yet thats why david had the two facehuggers put into stasis those r the real deal. Second i love this channel lol

    It was a protomorph because it wasn't in the form of a chest buster and it's inner jaw wasn't square like classic xenomorph it was oval in shape

  • FireFoxx_Gaming Flores

    When they say no sign of life anywhere you can hear in the backround chriping a fidgeting which is proof of life on planet 4. these directors sure are really smart!!!!

  • Leeann hell yeah man

    It's a protomorph not a Xenomorph for whatever reason it's like a crocodile and an alligator two different species but very similar

  • Leeann hell yeah man

    -Almost no technology to create a new species
    -Sketches of classic chestburster
    -If he was trying to create perfection then why did he use facehuggers instead of spores?
    -Why are "protomorphs" superior to xenomorphs in some ways?
    -Why were the eggs in the derelict significantly older?

    I like how James says he understands the continuity of how the OG xenomorph, but shits on what Ripley Scott for what he was trying accomplish with his Continuity. This is the first Xenomorph to be perfected by David. Thus having to make more leading on to the first Aliens.

    • a cats
      a cats 3 days ago

      Protomorph is the wrong word. It implies it is a prototype of the original xenomorph when in fact it is a prototype of something david is creating based off the original xenomorph

    Why do they keep giving us these complicated and boring prequels instead of trying to build on the universe that the first four films built? Give us another sequel. I will say covenant wasn’t terrible and I did enjoy the protomorphs.

    • a cats
      a cats 3 days ago

      Covenant built on the universe more than Aliens easily. All aliens did was ruin the fear of the xenomorph

    Man I wish this was s better movie. It had potential but instead of going back to that whole “alien in the space ship” situation. The effects need work and it needs more horror rather than needless xenomorph backstory

    The word Xenomorph annoys me. It was a generic term used in the second Movie to describe extra terrestrial life, yes it's a Xenomorph, so is E.T, Chewbacca and the Klingons.

  • TheDooo 22

    It is a protomorph because is was the first xeno but it became the queen and only protos can do that

    • a cats
      a cats 3 days ago

      No evidence to back this up. It was david's recreation of xenomorphs
      Ridley Scott said that he doesn't like the queens so why would he add them to his films?

    Sorry dude but it isn’t a xenomorph it is canon that it’s called the protomorph. It’s because it’s a prototype xenomorph.

      No it's not. If it was then why does david have a sketch of a classic chestburster? It is david's recreation of xenomorphs

    As a lifelong Xenomorph fan, i hate the direction this series is going, Scott is basically denouncing his own lore he created in favor of making David, another stupid android the creator of the deadliest species in the universe, so glad 20th Century Fox said no more prequels after the third film cuz i don't see any possible way he could bridge the next film to Alien, The Engineer in Alien found the Xenomorph eggs and was bringing them back to LV-422 but due to getting chest bursted crash landed on the neighboring moon of LV-426, thanks for ruining an already great franchise Ridley with your weird hard on for delusional self important androids.

      David did not create the aliens. He recreated them using Shaw's egg cells.
      How could he have the technology to create an entirely new species there?
      Why was there a sketch of a classic chestburster in his lab?

    Shaw wasn’t actually chestbursted she was killed by David so he could use her body to experiment on to create the xenomorph
    In a blu-ray extra it looks as if David used shaws hand as a starter for the facehugger and wanted to use her womb to create a queen

    Here's my hot take. I loved this movie, yeah it doesn't hold next to Alien or Aliens but I like to think of it almost as a standalone movie. I love the exploration of any Alien/Xenomorph lore and I really enjoyed the acting in the movie. Not perfect, but to me, it's better than Alien 3 and Resurrection. Plus it's gory, gotta love a bit of gore.
