The Crossing, an official prologue short to Alien: Covenant, reveals what happened to crew members Dr. Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace) and the synthetic David (Michael Fassbender) after the events of Prometheus. Set aboard an abandoned Engineer vessel, Dr. Shaw repairs David as they continue their search for humanity’s creators.
The two-minute plus short video will attempt to tie-up some loose ends by bridging the storylines of Prometheus as well Covenant. Hopefully The Crossing will also help answer some questions regarding the fate of Dr. Shaw in the sequel.
