In Noah I trust. What he did with Fargo is true masterclass. I'm not worried at all about Alien series.

You know who else said "in [BLANK] we trust"?  Lots and lots of people in regards to Shane Black in the run up to the release of The Predator.

The Species 'embedded blueprint' concept is actually something that Raised By Wolves has riffed on, in a sense, as well. In season one, it is revealed that...

Spoiler
The blueprints for the show's Necromancer androids (like the main character Mother) were not actually developed by the Mithraic forces on Earth, but rather, were found embedded within ancient Mithraic scripture. The Mithraic merely built the Necromancer machines according to schematics that they believe came from their god Sol, when in all actuality they likely that they were embedded there ages ago by whatever the "Signal" posing as Sol on Kepler-22b is.

My point is that even though the show takes place on earth, that doesn't necessarily mean the Aliens featured were found there or close to it.

I wonder if Noah had all that in mind, and as you point out, Mars was fully colonized by Weyland.

Speaking of which, can you imagine that for Noah, what David did in Covenant is like when the Mithraic designed the Necromancer to fight against atheists, using an ancient blueprint?  :laugh:

I wasn't one of them. Plus I don' like Black's movies.

That's almost certainly the route I expect them to go now, as far as retconning David as the creator goes. The only alternative would be straight up wiping Prometheus and Covenant from the continuity, which I guess is possible (they did it with the AVPs, thankfully), but retconning David into merely re-inventing (and not being aware of the "re-" part of his place in all of this) the Alien seems to be the more likely route for them to take.

I still think the best route forward would be to just set any future stories, including Hawley's show here, after the events of the prequels, and simply just not acknowledging the exact origin of the eggs on hand in any specific instance. I also think that anything set on Earth should absolutely not be set prior to Alien, but hey, that's just me!

A post-Alien 3 setting would have been perfect here for both setting this series on Earth without stepping on the original trilogy's toes, and for being able to play fast and loose with the David as creator angle. Pre-Alien, like they're doing here, ends up just stepping on every installment's toes.

I really wonder what, specifically, is the main narrative thread that makes this a story that has to be set prior to Alien? Prior to the release of Covenant and the revelation of David as creator, which firmly set the story pre-Alien, I also thought that Prometheus was a story that, with very minimal changes, could have just as easily been told post-Alien 3.

I'm all for Queen being fished out of shores of Antarctica.

Don't mention Queen to Ridley ;D

Ridley doesn't know what he's missing. Look at those curves!

Whatever they go with, I feel like I'm just going to be annoyed that the characters aren't just following instructions from David's Advent transmission.

Well, this is set roughly around the time of Prometheus, so that hasn't happened yet. ;)

Nukiemorph

That's assuming the producer knew what he was talking about.

And if it really does take place around Prometheus, I have to wonder why. If they aren't involving the prequels or actively going against them, then why would they pick that time period?

Unless they have good reason, I feel like I'm going to wish they'd just set this after Covenant and used the Advent transmission.

I have to wonder if any new story is going to pick up on this at all.
