Lindelof should be smacked in the face.

There was no problem with Lindelof. He was able to achieve what was asked of him. His script just needed a rewrite or two to fix up a few things.

Lol OmegaZilla and Nightmare I'm always gonna be confusing you two with each other cause of your almost identical Avatars and Signatures! Anyway yeah I just don;t see where they could take this. Despite myself I do like Shaw, I have no desire to see Prometheus 2. Give me a proper Alien film. Don't make it a prequel, don't directly tie it in with any specific previous Alien film, and don't have an unecessary Ripley Knock off in the lead.

It'd be interesting for the sequel that the ship is found drifting in deep space. A salvage crew boards it and finds Shaw had David are both dead, but the ship has a new variation of the xenomorph. Something that evolved from Shaw and meddling with alien technology.
Bu then it would just be another Alien movie with a slightly different looking (and lets be honest - inferior) xeno.
How would it be inferior? You could come up with a number of different things to the mix.
Inferior because whilst there's always room to explore new designs, nothing would match the beautiful nightmare of Giger's xeno design (IMHO). What are the "different things to the mix" you mention?. We've had marines, scientists/explorers, pyramids, exploding ships, penal colonies, xenos in water, xenos underwater, xenos in space, on Earth, in snow, cats, dogs, oxen... They've just about done everything...

Huante's designs were solid.. and definitely not inferior to Giger's original design. Ridley was a fool not to use them...

They need to explore and expand the mythos.. while leaving open many windows to do many different kinds of flicks in the universe :P You want your hard scifi horror flick? You can have it. You want an epic space opera nightmare-ish horror flick? You can have it as well.. Diversification is the only way this franchise will survive :P Keep it centered around horror, space and lovecraftian giger-influenced creatures... and you've got a lot to explore with those central elements :P

Predators could be added back into the fold in a tasteful way..but Robert Rodriguez is a hack.  :P

Wut. His "ultramorph" designs were just slick, derivative copies of Giger's Necronom IV, and his deacon design looked like an angry mutant beluga whale :P He has nothing on Giger.

Of course it looked like Giger's Necronom IV... he was hired to do an Alien creature :P might as well go back to the source... still better than of ADI's "derivatives". :P

and "angry-boneless-mutant-beluga-whale-man-with-marfan-syndrome" is a more exact description :P bizarre looking... and elegant in a way. :P

Kinda looks like the film adaptation of DOOM or something. But to see a scene like this play out through Scott's lens and lights and with some clever editing (so we don't see too much) I'd give it a go.
