In a scene in Alien: Covenant, Covenant is en route to a world to colonize when the accident interrupts the voyage. They detect a signal from the planet close by and off they go exploring.
This seems quite an unbelievable coincidence to me. I mean, even if they knew of the fate of the Prometheus how can they 'accidentally' stumble onto the the engineer planet?
There is no way they could know that David and Shaw had gone off to find it. Can anyone explain this?
