A few weeks ago, a trailer for Alien: Covenant revealed the dog tags of Prometheus’ Elizabeth Shaw, leading many to believe that she had died. Now, a new prologue shows us exactly what happened to the sole survivor of the Prometheus ship.
“The Crossing, an official prologue short to Alien: Covenant, reveals what happened to crew members Dr. Elizabeth Shaw and the synthetic David after the events of Prometheus. Set aboard an abandoned Engineer vessel, Dr. Shaw repairs David as they continue their search for humanity’s creators.”
In the video, we get to see Shaw repairing David and then learning to control one of the alien ships left behind by the Engineers.
