I kind of like the whole Alien Isolation & Aliens Defiance timeline. Some nice stories can come out of all that. But better I continue that on another topic & thread.
The whole Prometheus-Covenant to Alien storyline should be great too, I love the current position and direction we are heading into now.
This got me thinking - If these spores are breathed-in, then that could play into the Pilot suit with it's elephantine, respirator-tube.
Good observation... Though I'd still prefer it if there were real Space Jockeys and the Engineers were just shown to be emulating their physiology. That creature on the derelict still clearly has teeth and a tongue.
If they're clever, the story might even reference the famous reports of strange masked beings spraying some kind of a mysterious gas around, shortly before the Black Death hit civilisation. Those always intrigued me and would fit right in with the Engineers' alleged MO of upgrading our species' genes by force, every now and then.
This got me thinking too
Could it be that the engineer head they brought back exploded because it had already been exposed to spores right before he fell and the door collapsed on him? Maybe they were running from a spore outbreak? That would explain why he just collapsed as if nothing touched hm. The head didn't blow up in the tomb because it was dead, but when they revive it...kaboom?
I'm tellig you guys, I really think Covenant will explain a lot of misunderstood sh!t that happened in Prometheus...
