PREMISE: "In 2104, the crew of the colony ship Covenant is bound for a remote planet, Origae-6, with some 2,000 colonists and over 1,400 embryos on-board, monitored by Walter, a more advanced android resembling the earlier David. A neutrino shockwave damages the ship and waking the crew from stasis. While repairing the damage, they intercept a human radio transmission from a seemingly lifeless nearby planet.
