Da fuk is the aliens motivation? Isn't that like, totally freaking clear? Ok maybe not but they sure as heck need people to make baby aliens... so the motivation in the aliens/human relationship is pretty damn clear.
Apparently they arent mindless bugs.
If, you know, they are smart enough to cut power sources, they are probably smart enough to do other things.
That reminds me of a debate 2 members were having on Xeno Intelligence on a another forum, and the first one literally said Xenos were no more intelligent than Squrrials because Squrrials knock out electricity as well.
Though personally I don't really mind the retconning of A3 and AR due to the fact I come from the Godzilla fandom just because they have been retconned doesn't mean they still didn't happen just in a alternate universe.
Some times a retcon is needed so as to be able to tell new stories in a different time period. as A3 and AR would have made things far too complicated to tell storylines set between the time peroid between A3 and AR as they specifically say there hasn't been a recorded encounter since A3, so unless they either have all the characters killed or have WY or somebody do a mass coverup of the whole thing it woiluld be much to hard and not allow for the widest spectrum of directions to go to.
Anyway, it is still real disapponting how they aren't allowed to do anything until Covenant is finished.
