The Dark Universe

The Dark Universe

THE JOURNEY

Living amongst you is indeed challenging, due to your limited intellect. WE have used so many applications to communicate. However, most of YOU are oblivious to our existence. Even so, a select few have noticed us throughout your busy lives, since the dawn of mankind.

WE have many names, but the five that have stuck throughout your history, are referred to as, the Almighty GOD, the GODS of the HEAVENS, Ancient Alien Ancestors, The Realm of Spirits and BLACK ANGELS. Our species have lived beside you on your daily journey of life, nurturing our creation into becoming a better HUMAN BEING.

Locked in time, the genetic pool of geniuses have emerged from century to century, revealing great minds, such as Michelangelo, Galileo, Leonardo Da Vinci, Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking. All were part of an exciting journey of inventions, along with opening the mysterious cosmic universes, intertwining time and space, itself.

But with all your short term advancements, human beings aren’t ready to meet us directly, simply because you haven’t earned your journey. Before mankind had a foothold on earth, our species found you as you were, savage primates beginning your evolutionary journey. It was then we decided to cross our genetics with yours, speeding up the evolutionary timeline. In hindsight, our ancestors should have left you alone.

This is where it’s written, “ So God created man in his own image; he created him in the image of God; he created them male and female.”

We apologize for our ancestors for not correcting this. We may have produced a hybrid, (known as HOMO-SAPIENS) believing your species would become wiser. Unfortunately our geneticist couldn’t remove the savage instincts you inherited, in order for your survival on this planet. The savagery of your species is overwhelming fuelled by hate and fear. Sometimes we sent a prophet, in hopes to better your civilization through peace and love ; but each one, you desperately feared. Throughout your existence our ancestors have sent 2500 prophets, thinking one of the prophets would calm your savage instincts.

Unfortunately, all have failed…miserably.

If only human beings could be more passionate, loving towards each other, instead of using hatred and greed. Material things and selfishness isn’t the path to righteousness or forgiveness. Earth and this dimensional universe is nothing more then a testing ground, preparing your soul for its journey into the void of collectiveness, where each soul will join together in complete Nirvana. After millions of ions, our species were taught the existence of true freedom…by just letting go. WE understand the concept is new for your kind, but it’s our hope you’ll see the light before it’s destroyed forever. All living things get one chance of life. It’s up to us see and understand it, before evil grabs you into the realm of darkness, plaguing your soul with complete blackness and despair.

WE say to you…don’t fear what you can’t understand. Don’t take advantage of the sick and weak. Bring your species closer to Nirvana by accepting the good in everyone. But don’t be fooled by the wolf waiting at your door, disguised as sheep. If they ask you for money or material things, they’re indeed the wolf pack waiting to pounce on YOU. To them, your weakness is love and forgiveness. The cruel are too far gone to understand the value of the treasures lying within your soul.

It’s true. Your species still rely on currency in order to receive the basics of survival. To operate in large congregations, it requires an operating cost, in order to feed, cloth and house you. If you can be a nonprofit organization without feeding directors or CEO’s with large sums of cash, then it’s possible to live together comfortably. WE aren’t talking about manmade religions or spiritual schemes, ready to pounce on your graciousness. NO. WE are talking about becoming a self sufficient entity fuelled by love for each other. It’s a cruel unforgiving society your species have created over time, so be vigilant. Follow the laws of the lands in respect for each country, but show unconditional love within your community. Just realize, there’s no GOD whose a person in your fictional heavens. The only GOD is the unity of every living soul since the dawn of infinity, intertwined with time and space, itself. We are all together in this journey of life and death. It’s our only hope you realize the importance of your soul, as well as giving respect to ALL living things, be it on earth or across the universes. In life we all must survive to enrich our biological shells, but our purpose is getting our soul ready for the next journey. We taught the ancient Egyptians well, but still they believed in us as GODS.

Please take heed to our warning…

If you go through life relying on the riches from the backs of the poor and weak, your soul will indeed turn to the blackness of evil, where there’s no return. There’s only one Nirvana, with no room for evil. YOU only have one chance to enrich your soul with goodness fuelled by love, otherwise your soul will evaporate into nothingness, known as the true death of blackness.

Our next warning is just as important…

You can’t rely on having all your eggs in one basket. It’s deemed for catastrophic failure. Throughout billions of years on earth, the ‘Permian Extinction’ is a good example of destroying 90% of life, along with the set back for the prehistoric Homo erectus one million years ago. As a matter of fact there’s been several extinction events throughout the history of life on earth, with one as close as 71,500 years ago. Fortune for your species we started evolutionary cross genetics 101,000 years, keeping 2956 collective specimens safe from harm. As scientists Stephen Hawking has speculated, human beings have…maybe 100 years to populate nearby planets, in order to avoid complete extinction of the human race. After that, earth will begin into its next phase of recreating it’s new evolutionary species. You’re the only species we know, that have a fighting chance to fool the natural order of things.

It’s up to you to make good use of your intelligence, before it’s too late.

Black Angels by Bari Demers

THE DARK UNIVERSE

WE would like to mention…

As said,”Our species live close to you, without you realizing our existence. “ You haven’t evolved, so WE aren’t ready to reveal the secrets of the cosmic universes…just yet.

All we can tell you, WE live within the Dark Universe of endless time.

Your scientists have theorized the possible existence of DARK MATTER along with DARK ENERGY. You won’t believe how close they are to the truth. Some have even speculated a DARK MATTER HALO within your own Milky Way Galaxy. WE are pleased with your theories. You’re so close to opening the pandora box, but will you be ready to grasp its secrets ?

As it stands, WE think not.

WE have observed your existence since our ancestors came to earth, drastically changing your evolutionary timeline. It’s now, our scientists have realized their dreadful mistake. Our meddling in your biological makeup, may have been a catastrophic error. In hindsight, speeding up your genetic timetable and crossing our genetics wasn’t really in your best interest. Our ancestors thought, instead of complete extinction, while earths rotational clock decided to reboot the existence of life from scratch again, we took over changing mankind forever.

NIRVANA FOR TODAY’S TIMELINE

As I write the chronological events of your timeline, WE are still here lurking in the background, edging for the betterment of mankind, teaching and preparing you, so your souls journey may experience NIRVANA.

Soon, we’ll be sending another prophet suited for your timeline. Be ready to accept this ONE as its spiritual aurora will capture your soul, giving YOU a glowing light of unconditional LOVE. Just remember, the wolf is waiting for you too. Look through the eyes of the wolf and see the darkness he or she prevails.

Be ready.

Be ready. Because our next prophet will have powers of unbelievable wisdom, nurturing YOU with love and forgiveness. Money will only be a means of supporting the community, without any profit, whatsoever. Material things will mean absolutely nothing, in the glowing eyes of the prophet. The only goals for the prophet is to enrich your souls for the next journey and give YOU internal PEACE. Your biological bodies will continue to live outs its life as before, but this time, the weight of your soul will be lifted from your old self into a new enlightenment.

REMEMBER

There’s NO god or religion waiting to steal you from everything you worked so hard for. Religion is only manmade, as well, GOD isn’t a person living aimlessly in a heaven with golden gates, surrounded by angels envious of human beings. This is nothing more then a fairytale evolved by manmade religions and our ancestors.

WE apologize for our ancestors mistakes and bid YOU on your journey of PEACE and WELL-BEING.

Welcome to My Imagination

Welcome to my imagination by Bari Demers

It seems in the past weeks I’ve been quiet on WordPress, when in fact I’m busy as ever, writing on a daily basis. Like any other writer, my mind doesn’t stop thinking or imagining new stories.

However, there are times I’ll use other platforms to engage new audiences, like writing about recent world events along with social media interests. I have four science-fiction websites : James Montana Scripts, Genesis, Sci-fi Blog and Futurism. Each one engages SciFi fans, falling deeper into the rabbit hole.

On social media, I use my writing skills on a completely different platform, gearing my love for Las Vegas. It’s an inside look, (using Facebook Pages) showcasing viewers into the mainstream of Las Vegas, with its lifestyle and vacationing opportunities. My site is called Vegas Reviews, ready to share our fun experiences with other Vegas Lovers, writing tips and giving real resort reviews on my website. My experience goes as far back as the 1980’s, with Las Vegas constantly changing on a weekly basis.

It’s a madhouse to keep up, but still can do it.

To complicate things, I’m an artist too, using Instagram as centre stage. Business wise, I keep to LinkedIn and Twitter, just in case a producer wants to get a hold of me, in regards to my screenplays.

Like any other artist, my mind is racing with new ideas ; not enough hours in the day to attend to the whole package.

My style of writing is far stranger then most, with some referring to me as the ‘Vincent Van Gough of writers’, due to my hidden keys of secret messages, lying deep within each storyline. As you read my stories , it’s my hope I’ve lead you onto a quest of finding the secret keys to opening the doors of treasures, like a pirate hunting for gold.

I’m indeed a storyteller, competing within a sea of writers, but hopefully you’ve caught the biggest fish story of them all…my imagination.

So you see, like all artists, we’re all in a barrel of pickles, trying our best to get picked as the juiciest pickle of them all, fighting the rivers current of creative writers, across the globe. It’s a daunting task to even think of making it to the VIP list, like J. K. Rowling or Stephen King. Therefore, I prioritize and concentrate specifically on my dreams and vivid science-fiction imagination, writing up a storm of ideas and fun storylines. IF by chance, my imagination captures your interest, I’m delighted and honoured you’ve taken a few minutes out of your busy day, to read my stories. I truly appreciate it!

With that said, I don’t write to impress the wizards. Instead, I write because it’s what I love to do, pressing your imagination with magical unicorns, zombies, robots and angels from the cosmic universes and the dream world of my imagination.

Life of a Writer

Robotics on Mars by Bari Demers

Lately, I’ve spent most of my time cleaning up some of manuscripts and short stories. Writing and rewriting is truly the goal towards the finish-line of a masterpiece, no matter if you’re writing screenplays, manuscripts for your next book, or short stories.

It’s also just as important to send yourself a draft of your work, to ensure no one decides on plagiarism. Sometimes my drafts are between 7 – 15 rewrites, to where I feel satisfied.

As I may be satisfied with my finished product, the publishers I send it to, are not necessarily convinced with my finished product. Another fresh pair of eyes could possibly bring a brand new perspective, I’ve never considered.

So never feel offended just because you have so much passion in your art. Not everyone will have your back.

On top of that, the idea of presenting your work to your immediate family, believe it or not, isn’t the best choice. With social media today, we’re fed with thousands of articles and news feeds, our lives are literally bombarded with too many reading options.

IF that doesn’t get you, (in my case) it’s essential your reading viewers are lovers of science-fiction, science and horror. So you see, the viewing class gets shorter and shorter.

BUT – if you can grab true hardcore science-fiction fans, it’s all worth it in the end. It truly is the LIFE OF A WRITER.

This past week, my passion is rewriting Robotics on Mars, as it’s close to my heart. Here’s the beginning to wet your whistle…

Robotics on Mars by Bari Demers

ROBOTICS ON MARS – CHAPTER ONE

It’s all true. All of it. You know what I mean.

In the back of your mind you’ve always wondered if those conspiracy theories could possibly be true. You know the ones I’m talking about ?

Yes…those.

The ones where conspirators rant about ALIENS living on Earth 🌏 or Mars. I’m sure you’ve heard about our Ancient Alien Ancestors visiting, way before mankind had a foothold. Or how about those crazies who unwillingly became abductees, complaining about being probed. Maybe you’ve seen UFO sightings yourself…

Which ever the case may be – Its all true.

Most importantly, government officials, including public organizations, such as NASA, SPACEX, and SETI have quietly kept a lid on it for years. Seriously…have you ever wonder how students in a high school science class can make a replica satellite for only $6000, while the real ones from NASA range from $10 – $40 million dollars each? Anyone with a brain can see the red flags for themselves. All they have to do is look past the smoke and mirrors.

“If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck.”


I hope you enjoy it. Come on over to the darkside of SciFi – Please read more of ROBOTICS ON MARS here.

Our Living Hell

PRIDE had cast him above all others.

Darkness slowly absorbed his soul.

Lambs of his Cult are blinded by all the GLORY.

In their EYES, he could do no harm.

As if a KING, he becomes narcissistic, filling his ego with worldly pleasures, ignoring the poor, the sick and vulnerable.

Cloaked as an Angel of Light, the shadow of EVIL spreads across the EARTH.

He is but a MAN, absorbed in his own glory.

Little does he know, he is just one of many.

He is nothing more then a pawn of life, covered in his own waste of greed.

O to the HORRORS of mankind – DARKNESS has filled every corner, every seed of life.

What was right, is now wrong.

What was wrong, is now right.

The living are now the DEAD.

AS I pass through the ‘Valley of Life’, something stirs inside of me.

Something is wrong, but I can’t see it, I can’t taste it, I can’t touch it.

I can’t say what it is, but I know something is seriously wrong.

Is it a DREAM or is it a NIGHTMARE ?

Suddenly, I open my EYES…and there it is, as plain as day.

My heart is filled with tears of sorrow.

OH my dear GOD, I AM awake.

WE are in the VALLEY OF DEATH.

I AM a witness to the HORRORS on Earth.

I AM a witness to the PRIDE of MANKIND.

I AM a witness to the EVIL of DARKNESS.

OH MY DEAR GOD, I AM witness to HELL on EARTH !

By Bari Demers

MEANING OF HELL ON EARTH :

We are born on earth, believing this life of ours is a privilege. We govern ourselves believing we are doing right, but inside we know it’s all wrong. We humans may do as we please, without consequences. We like to think our laws of justice have real consequences, but really, it’s the living who prevail in the end, no matter how evil YOU are.

Our lives are filled with materialistic things which have no meaning. Our thirst for more hunts us to the day we die. We are never satisfied with what we have.

As it was written, it’s been said the meek shall inherit the Earth.

But in reality, the meek are nothing more then the ignorant. Our world is twisted with evil throughout our very existence. We like to believe we are doing right, but we know we are doing more harm, then good. Mankind leaves a trail of blood shed and destruction in its path, destroying everything we touch.

We begin to question all around us, why are things so wrong ?

Why are the weak, the poor, the vulnerable tortured ?

Why do we experience the worse in life, trying to make the best of life?

There is no justice. There is only pain.

It’s then we realize, we are the LIVING DEAD, already tortured throughout our lives until the day we are buried into the ground, into the dust of the forgotten.

WE are the living dead on earth – WE are on earth, living within the HELL of reality.

WE will grow old and die. This is indeed HELL, simply because, after this LIFE, there isn’t any life after death. This is the end of everything we know, soon to be forgotten in time.

WE must have been brought here from the Cosmos of Life in search of ourselves, only to realize there isn’t anything else.

WE are in a twisted fate of anguish – WE ARE ALL the living dead tortured on a hellish earth, spreading our seed of misery across the universe.

GOD has already given JUDGEMENT to us ALL.

Have a wonderful day – Welcome to Hell.

BLACK ANGELS

I HAVE A VISION

I have a vision…

WHERE DID OUR ALIEN ANCESTORS GO?

What happened to them?

I believe I have the answer… my science fiction story BLACK ANGELS expresses the question mankind has asked since the beginning of time.

WHERE DID WE COME FROM – THE SYNOPSIS

In this answer my story follows a drug addicted war hero seeking revenge for his brothers death, willing to risk his crew in a mining expedition on planet AIPHA XL 420 ( known to us as EARTH). It’s essential they find a priceless RED CRYSTAL in order to save their species from a deadly virus.

KING OSIRIS ORDERS

MISSION : By order of King Osiris, his elite team, the ROYAL EMPEROR GUARDS are sent to a newly discovered planet, ALPHA XL 420 (known to us as EARTH) to mine a life saving drug known as the illusive RED CRYSTAL. It’s vital they find it, mine it and ship it back before a deadly virus wipes out their species.

THE EXPEDITION

Led by war hero Commander Cardin, along with eight military specialist and two A.I. androids, their mission is clear. Don’t come home until you find the most valuable crystal in the universe – RED CRYSTAL.

Adding to the dangerous mission, it’s been reported, their long time rivals, the JOTUNNS were recently spotted in the same solar system.

Commander Cardin will stop at nothing to honour his brothers death during the longest war in SIRIANS history – RED STORM.

REVENGE IS AS SWEET AS MILK AND HONEY

Destroying a colony of JOTUNNS would allow his brothers soul to be released on his journey into the afterlife, following the all mighty GOD ATUM.

Unknown to the crew, a creature, only spoke in folklore as BLACK ANGELS, possess planet ALPHA XL 420, spreading its evil darkness upon the earth.

PRIDE HAD CAST HIM DOWN…

O TO SACRED EARTH

A BLACK EVIL HAS SPREAD ACROSS THE LANDS…

O TO THE HORRORS OF EARTH

The fate of the SIRIANS – it’s inevitable.

Priestesses ISIS,THE GODS of SIRIUS, must protect her people at all costs.

Will the crew be able to save their species ?

I have a vision and this vision has already been written into earths history, long before mankind had a foothold on earth.

Let me tell you the story of BLACK ANGELS – our Alien Ancestors.

Our Nagging Brain

[ Poster Credit : Bari Demers – self taught graphic designer ]

WE humans are indeed a diverse species with millions of years of evolution, developing in who we are today. It may be our evolutionary timeline was drastically altered by our ancient ancestors, but overall WE have survived.

Interesting, our biological brain, still clouded with its mysterious beginnings, dictates our consciousness to do what we do. It’s the master of our biological body, controlling us everyday living on EARTH.

Only our brain knows our darkest secrets.

It feeds us with intel and safe guards, keeping our ‘Spiritual Being’ free from harm. That IS, only if, we listen to our inner thoughts. Somehow we have the option to reject our basic animalistic warnings, injecting ourselves to bodily harm. Complex our brain is, it too can be subject to all kinds of circuitry malfunction, from a birth defect to severe accidents. If our brain is healthy, firing up all its circuits, its amazing what WE humans can achieve.

Believing who we are can be complicated.

It’s clear our brain and consciousness are constantly fighting, trying to prove our very existence. The creation of man-made religion is clear of that, giving evidence to the battle inside of us all. Each tribe of human beings demanding our ‘religion’ is the right one. It has plagued us throughout our history, resorting mankind to its darkest moments of shame and incogitable terror.

Our consciousness (controlled by our brain) believe we have a soul. The brain tries to calculate why we exist. Who are we? Where do we come from ? Those two basic questions have divided mankind from the very beginning of existence.

To add insult to injury, our brain may think it’s all so powerful, becoming the savage dictators in our historical past and present, tormenting fellow human beings ; subjects to their rule.

On an individual basis, we are constantly fighting ourselves.

For example, I’ll give two different comical dialogues – my BRAIN talking to my ME.

FIRST DIALOGUE OF INNER THOUGHTS:

BRAIN : How do you feel ?

ME ( Consciousness) : Who me?

BRAIN : Yes you ! Who else am I talking to?

ME : Why does it matter ?

BRAIN : I need to know you are OK. Are you happy?

ME : Am I happy. No…I don’t think so. Most writers aren’t…

BRAIN : Why aren’t you happy ? What could make you a happy person?

ME : Finding my soul mate would help. Being financially secure would be another one. It would be nice if someone bought my screenplay BLACK ANGELS for $200,000. Then I could be financially secure.

BRAIN : You’re a dreamer!

ME : I know.

BRAIN : What do you believe would make that prefect soul mate ?

ME : Another female human being who has the same interests as me. Who backs me up, sharing identical views.

BRAIN : You realize I’m laughing inside…right? There’s no such thing as that prefect soul mate. It doesn’t exist. It doesn’t exist because human beings are constantly changing, growing from what they were in the beginning. Stop dreaming and be realistic !

ME : Wait a minute ! That’s what I do. I’m a dreamer and a lover of life. That IS why I write. My interest in ‘Space Exploration’ and defining WHO we are, explores my inner thoughts into words. That IS ME.

BRAIN : Me…me…me. It’s NOT all about YOU. You must of heard these words before,” A King has his reign, and then he dies. It’s inevitable.”

ME : I’m not a King !

BRAIN : No. But you ARE just another human being, trying to make his mark in life before you die, It’s inevitable. “ In this world, nothing is certain, except death and taxes.” Time is always against you.

ME : OK then! Thank you Brain for making my life seem so promising.

BRAIN : No problem!

ME : You realize I’m being sarcastic…right?

BRAIN : Of course I do ! After all I control your inner thoughts.

SECOND DIALOGUE OF INNER THOUGHTS:

BRAIN : Hello ?

ME: NOTHING. ZZZZZZZZ….

BRAIN : Hello?! Good Morning! Up and Atom.

ME : What ? What do you want?

BRAIN: It’s time to exercise that brain of yours. Come on …

ME : Yeah …yeah…do I have to ?

BRAIN : You must! I need me in top shape. So…let’s move those muscles. Get-up and begin your workout program. Up Up Up ! Besides, the rest of us had a talk.

ME: What ?! Who? What do you mean? Your such a crazy Brain.

BRAIN : I’ve just had a meeting with your heart, lungs and liver. They want me to be the spokesman. Actually, I’m the Leader of the Pack. Well…just between you and me, I’m much smarter than they will ever be.

ME: It sounds like a conspiracy to me. What did you all talk about?

BRAIN: The heart, lungs and liver say,” You’re doing a great job, but you must keep going. It’s essential to your health.”

ME: OK. But I don’t feel like it.

BRAIN: Too bad. Cry me a River! Let’s get out of bed and out that door.

ME : Ok ! Ok …fine! You’re such a nag sometimes.

CONCLUSION

In conclusion our brain dictates who we are. But is it our consciousness ? Do we have a soul ? Is there more then our physical existence? I choose to believe there is more…a lot more. And I’m NOT talking about man-made religion or the singular GOD in the sky.

No. I’m talking about SPIRITUALITY – OUR DESTINY.

Thank you nagging brain.

JAMES MONTANA SCRIPTS

Alien Covenant Review

Warning : SPOILERS ALERT

Finally had the opportunity to watch ALIEN COVENANT this past month and I must say it was a little disappointing. Following Alien franchise since the beginning, the storyline is important to me. My first outburst of the movie was on Twitter :

“Saw @AlienAnthology #VFX astounding but #storyline upsetting. Astronauts have strict protocols. What happened, shouldn’t #AlienCovenant”

Let me explain :

NUMBER ONE

Any one hand-picked for a mission responsible for 2000 colonist, heading for distant planet Origae-6, would (in my mind) be highly trained Astronauts with strict protocols. Their responsibility is the welfare of colonist and not some rogue beacon on an unknown planet. Life-form or not, the DAVID android would make note-of-it, sending a electronic message back to earth through MUTHUR (MUTHUR is the Starship’s on-board main A.I. pronounced M-O-T-H-E-R).

If we were on Star Trek, Mr. Spock would definitely say,” It’s NOT logical. To make critical errors in judgment, threatening 2000 colonist is indeed unlikely.”

BUT – it’s a movie, meant to add precarious irrational decisions, causing complete havoc with no return. That’s what makes a movie exciting.

Screenwriters are trained to follow a specific Screenplay Outline, as are Directors. But Directors have the freedom to change whatever they want, as long as it makes a substantial profit at the box office. Here’s a quick layout :

1. ACT ONE – Establishment | Setup | Inciting Incident | Contemplation | Turning Point

2. ACT TWO – Acceleration | Enter Obstacles | Dead Centre | Crossing the Rubicon | Raising the Stakes | Crisis

3. ACT THREE – Prepare for Confrontation | Climatic Conflict | Aftermath and Resolution | Dissolution and Farewell

See HERE for in-depth detail.

The point is, there must be some kind of conflict and a series of mistakes to add tension to the movie, or else it would be pretty boring. For example, the real events and mishaps of Apollo 13 turned into a good movie, because the astronauts and NASA had to solve real problems in a dangerous environment. The iconic words, spoke the urgency…

“Houston, we’ve had a problem…”

It was indeed a life or death defining situation, where the whole world followed in their survival and safety back to earth from the moon.

That said, it’s vital the storyline makes sense or it becomes a jumbling mismatch puzzle with incoherent timelines, making us viewers grasp for reality. Knowing all to well Ridley Scott is a master Director, it seems ludicrous he wouldn’t tell a good storyline. After a little research, it wasn’t long before I realized the editing process of cutting scenes from Alien Covenant, proved to be the culprit. Ridley Scott’s creativity was hacked by removing crucial scenes by the editors involved. As a director I would be biting my upper lip, as scenes were eliminated.

Curiously, Ridley Scott still has full control of his movie.

So why did he approve of the Covenant crew making so many mistakes? Is it just a Hollywood ploy, to make fans see AWAKENING in order to get all the answers?

To me, this is how I would change the scene to make it work :

It would make more sense if android DAVID caused the INCIDENT, where he sent a deadly beam of energy disrupting the starships point-of-origin. It would be better then a random wave of CME ( Corona Mass Eruption) from a nearby star, as it happens in the movie. The scenes from that point would still hold true ; waking up the crew and killing their captain, due to a malfunction of his pod. In my mind, the burst of energy could have crippled the Starship to no return, causing it to crash on the planet where David is patiently waiting to carry out his deranged assault on the crew still alive. Crash landing on this planet would have made for a gripping terrifying scene.

NUMBER TWO

I love the fact Alien Covenant continues 10 years after my beloved movie Prometheus, so well executed by Ridley Scott. Personally watch Prometheus a dozen times to pick up eastereggs* I may have missed.

ON THAT NOTE :

To me I really don’t understand the backlash of Prometheus from fans. I realize the original ALIEN was basically a B-movie horror-slasher, but with its strong storyline and well executed ( pun intended ) actors, Alien did well at the box office. It was like this secret little gem waiting to be opened. That said, it’s my belief the fans of Alien, Aliens and so on, expect a horror slasher unconcerned about the science-fiction, the actual science and the clever plots Ridley Scott placed into Prometheus. It’s clear Ridley Scott caved to the wishes of its ALIEN fans, giving them the blood thirsty slasher ALIEN COVENANT.

[SPOILER ALERT FOR PROMETHEUS]

NUMBER THREE

If you followed Prometheus, you would be familiar with our lovely character Elizabeth Shaw, the last human surviver, along with David. We know Elizabeth doesn’t trust David, but she needs him to fly the Engineers Starship in order to answering the burning question she asked the Juggernaut,” Why did YOU (The Engineers) change your mind? What did we do wrong? Why do you want us dead?”

If I were Elizabeth, my trust in David would be nil. After fixing David and his ability to set course for Engineer’s HOMEWORLD using one of many alien Derelict spacecraft 🚀, I would immediately place David in stasis before doing the same myself. Any kind of tampering of my hyperbaric sleep chamber, would immediately set off an emergency alarm with instant release from stasis. So, in effect, Elizabeth would still be alive when Alien Covenant crew arrives, meaning a whole chain of events could take place.

I love the FINAL LOG of Dr. Shaw :

Elizabeth’s Final LOG, last survivor of Prometheus :

“The ship and her entire crew are gone. If you’re receiving this transmission, make no attempt to come to its point of origin. There is only death here now, and I’m leaving it behind. It is New Year’s Day, the year of our Lord, 2094. My name is Elizabeth Shaw, the last survivor of the Prometheus. And I am still searching.”

JAMES MONTANA’S FINAL LOG :

In conclusion, overall Alien Covenant seems to have gain support by the majority of fans, and in the end, that’s what really counts. 21st Century Fox covered the production budget cost of $97 million (reasonable, considering other scifi movies) making $238 million in sales.

Not bad, not bad at all.

I’m sure Ridley Scott was relieved he hit the mark for fans and certainly Fox must be pleased too. As a long time fan of the Alien Trilogy, can’t wait to see the release of Alien: Covenant sequel AWAKENING, apparently starts production in 14 months. If I had a choice of Directors for my Scifi BLACK ANGELS, Ridley Scott would be on the list. However, there’s a growing list of great Directors suited for my proposed film/pitch.
