Ridley "undermined" the xenomorph?
With David as its creator now we have a character
with the active motivation
to spread these creatures throughout the universe..
as far as he can.
They are no longer just parasites, given David's fixation with sexual reproduction in this film
he pretty much created the xeno's to "f**k" mankind.
I give it a Big Thumbs up due to how f**ked up that is. As far as we know, David might still be alive in a post Alien Resurrection universe)
They are most definitely not just in LV426 anymore... like the 4 Ripley films suggested.
And with the Engineers and Neomorphs filmmakers can now literally point at any far away star in the galaxy,
set an Alien movie there and still have cool creatures and experiments with an infinite variety of shapes...
Prometheus was a bad movie but Covenant was decent and i dug the sadism of David's character.
But i guess the prototype chestburster had arms and legs so everything's ruined now.
