Alien Covenant: The Unofficial Animated Series launched its first episode yesterday via Alien-Covenant.com. The series will be based on popular fan theories about aspects of the Alien franchise that aren’t covered in films/comics/video games. Episode 1, LV-223, covers something fans of Prometheus have long wondered: What happened to The Deacon after Elizabeth Shaw (played by Noomi Rapace) and the android David (played by Michael Fassbender) left for the Engineers’ home world.
For those who don’t know, The Deacon is the name given to the ghoulish blue creature that exploded from the torso of the surviving Engineer at Prometheus’s conclusion; it’s also been called The Protomorph. Check out how this lonely fellow passed his time once he was abandoned on LV-223.
Official Synopsis: With David and Shaw having just left in search of the Engineer home world, the fate of the Deacon is left unknown. This episode explores, emulates and compiles many of the fan theories involving the Deacon’s fate while stranded on the desolate moon LV-223.
The Alien: Covenant Unofficial Animated Series is a non-profit fan project created by Scified.com, animator Jason Cardona (Footprints Workshop) and the community of Alien-Covenant.com – a fan website dedicated to all things Alien and Prometheus.
