Thirty-eight years ago, in Ridley Scott’s “Alien,” we met the crew of the Nostromo, a spaceship that, having picked up a signal of mysterious origin, was diverted to an uncharted planet. Lurking there was a thing that knew no mercy. Now we have Scott’s “Alien: Covenant,” in which the crew of another spaceship, the Covenant, go through the same experience, and make the same mistake of importing the thing in question onto their craft. Trust humans to screw up.
