Noah was already pretty open about the alien presence in the show.
He set it on earth so that the aliens' risk of spreading would be even higher.
If you're not expecting multiple aliens after that comment... then ???  ???
But are the Aliens driving the plot, or are they just there to provide some drama?

QuoteAliens work best when the how and why of their presence is a mystery at the start.
Start of what, exactly?

If we talk about Alien, for example, we usually mention the fact the space truckers find them on a derelict spaceship upfront. That doesn't spoil anything.

I also can't imagine any possibility where the endgame human/corporate goal here isn't to derive new tech (or enhance preexisting tech) directly from the Alien.
Then maybe mention that the Aliens play into this goal? There's literally no benefit to being coy about that. It doesn't need to be a spoiler, just even casually mentioning that the Aliens have anything to do with what he considers the heart of the story.

That was an actual company in the 80's and 90's

QuoteProdigy Communications Corporation (Prodigy Corp., Prodigy Services Co) was an online service from 1984 to 2001 that offered its subscribers access to a broad range of networked services, including news, weather, shopping, bulletin boards, games, polls, expert columns, banking, stocks, travel, and a variety of other features.

I'm writing up the news article now, but the name of another company that is looking at immortality in a different way is the Prodigy Corporation.

Given the various goals that Hawley has cited as being driving forces for the corporations in the show, and the nature of the Alien itself as a biomechanical entity that bridges the various abstracts that Hawley has talked about into one singular "perfect" being, I also can't imagine any possibility where the endgame human/corporate goal here isn't to derive new tech (or enhance preexisting tech) directly from the Alien.

It is so obvious how come I never saw it...

A new spin on an old franchise idea.

Mfw people get mad the show becomes about either continuing on our own path or utilizing the perfect artificial intelligence in the form of the Alien.

You're right, but as far as discussion of this show's concerned honestly, I'll take what I can get.
