Computer program tests the feelings and reactions of the Covenant crew.
A darkly twisted psychological drama, 'Phobos' is a short film set before the events of 'Alien : Covenant'. Featuring what would become the crew of the ill-fated colony ship Covenant, the film joins them in the final stages of the highly unorthodox recruitment process for their upcoming mission - orchestrated by their future employer, the Weyland Yutani Corporation.
At a state-of-the-art Weyland-Yutani base on Phobos, the innermost and larger of planet Mars' two natural satellites, several would-be crew-members of the colony spacecraft, USCSS Covenant, undergo analytical psychological evaluation by a computer. To assess their suitability for the ambitious Alien: Covenant (2017) colonisation mission, the machine puts the candidates through a series of questions, shocks, and footage of graphic violence. A Weyland-Yutani scientist monitors the entire evaluation process. Is it right to feel fear?
