David's Lab: Last Signs of Life is a 2019 short film. Created to mark the two-year anniversary of Alien: Covenant's home video release, the film is a sequel to the movie in which a Weyland-Yutani team arrives to investigate David's laboratory on Planet 4.


A team from Weyland-Yutani arrives on Planet 4, and one of the explorers enters David's laboratory to document the rogue synthetic's scientific discoveries. After carefully recording the specimens and records within the lab, including dissected Neomorphs and a vial of black liquid, he sets up his camera to analyze an egg-like object in one corner of the room while he continues his visual examination of the room. As the analysis continues, the Egg begins to show signs of life, eventually opening. The moment draws the explorer's attention, and when he moves closer to investigate, he is attacked by the Facehugger that explodes from within.


The video was originally released on August 15, 2019 through YouTube,[1] to celebrate the two-year anniversary of Alien: Covenant's home video release.


  • During the video, the words "POST DATE: 2017 8/8/17" can be seen on the camera. However, this is 87 years before the events of Alien: Covenant supposedly took place.
