Space Jockey Teased In Alien: Covenant BTS Ridley Scott Image
For Ridley Scott's 79th birthday we all get a little something special as Fox Studios released a behind-the-scenes look at Ridley Scott in Alien: Covenant where the Space Jockey can be seen in the background.
The Space Jockey, aka The Pilot, was an Engineer killed by a chestburster who piloted the spacecraft that crashed on LV-426 in the original Alien. It's been said the Space Jockey's ship was a weapons carrier used to drop alien eggs on to a planet so the Aliens could use the local lifeforms as hosts.
"Alien: Covenant" is directed by Ridley Scott starring Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Noomi Rapace, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Jussie Smollett, Carmen Ejogo, Amy Seimetz and Callie Hernandez.
Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in ALIEN with ALIEN: COVENANT, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with PROMETHEUS — and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world — whose sole inhabitant is the “synthetic” David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.
