Christopher Oram

Christopher Oram, played by Billy Crudup, is a character from the film Alien: Covenant.

Oram is the chief mate aboard the colony ship Covenant and the husband of Karine Oram. With Branson's death as a result of the neutrino flare from the nearby star, Christopher becomes the captain of Covenant, though he perceives his command as being questioned by Daniels and the other crew members due to his religious background.

When Shaw's transmission is received from the habitable Engineer homeworld, Christopher orders Covenant to divert to the planet, though his judgment is met with protests from Daniels. After leading a ground expedition to the crashed Engineer ship, Christopher returns to the lander to see it explode.

Christopher accepts David's aid on behalf of the survivors and accompanies David back to his base. He searches for Sarah Rosenthal, whom he finds decapitated, along with David communicating with the Neomorph that killed her. Christopher kills the Neomorph and holds David at gunpoint, demanding an explanation for his activities. David leads him to his makeshift laboratory, as well as a hatchery, where he keeps a number of Alien eggs. David goads Christopher into approaching an egg, which results in a Facehugger attacking and impregnating him. Christopher is awoken a short time later by David, only to have the first Alien chestburster erupt from his chest, killing him.
