'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.Written by
David quotes the poem "Ozymandias" by Percy Shelley. Shelley's wife, Mary Shelley, is the author of "Frankenstein". David shows similar characteristics to the creature in Frankenstein in Alien: Covenant. See more »
Prologue: The Crossing shows us what happened right after Prometheus and expands a little on the Engineers and David. Having watched it AFTER Covenant the other day, I strongly believe it should have been made a part of it, not a separate online release. You'll understand why after you see Covenant for yourself.
If you're an Alien fan then this little short will add more cohesion and structure to the narrative so definitely watch it BEFORE seeing Covenant, as well as Prologue: Last Supper. Also, check out this Alien/Predator time-line to better understand the order of events in what seems to start looking like a little big mess: http://www.imdb.com/list/ls003104998/
