If we explore the last point then Something Forbidden may have taken place... we have to wander what was the purpose of the Engineers, we know we saw the Sacrificial Scene and its hinted now the Engineers are a lower caste, maybe a sub-creation themselves.
What would cause a outrage?
Sub-creation? would creating Mankind without the consent of the Hierarchy be such a Act? The Last Engineer was none to pleased that Weyland had played God and created David.
Was Mankind Created for a purpose... but some Engineers had decided to either give us Forbidden knowledge... or interfere with us in a way that has Mankind Worship these Engineers as Gods.... would these upset the Engineers Hierarchy?
Would the Engineers, experimenting with themselves and creating Females be a act against the will of the Hierarchy? for which they got Punished?
But the Disaster Scene i feel is a Punishment being handed out to Engineers or some beings related to them for upsetting their Hierarchy it fits with the Paradise Lost theme... and what the Franchise has hinted at.
This also is what the Source was hinting at but in more detail.
some points the Source covered prior to even the mention of Alien Covenant, at a time when Blomkamps Alien 5 came about when there was no News on Prometheus and then the time there would be no More Gods and Dragons.
They claimed the theme was about Rebellion and Punishment, the unintended use of Forbidden Knowledge and the consequences of this.... Creation and Sub-Creation and the constant re-occurring event of Creator creates a creation and creation rebels against creator and then they sub-create and then their creation likewise rebels.
A theme that the Greek Prometheus Mythos explores, Uranus vs Cronus... to Cronus vs Zeus.... and likewise Biblical as in God vs Satan... They claimed Prometheus was following the same and David is the latest of this chain of rebellion against creator. They claimed that actually the Matrix related theme was closer to the idea.
They claimed the Engineers are not Gods, they are just as David is to us. They claimed that Mankind had been to that system prior to Prometheus (LV-223) that Mankinds role in the creation of the Xenomorph was bigger than the Engineers.
That Mankind is actually the 4th or 5th Generation of Mankind and there was prior versions of Mankind, who had came and gone and that we did not Evolve from Primates as Darwinism but that the Engineers form part of our Ancestral Evolutionary Tree instead.
They brought up how some ancient Mythos and cultures had previous generations of Mankind, and their was generations that did not have Females. And that Females where a cause of problems and noted that without Eve would Adam had been tempted by Satan?
They claimed that Humans were not the first generation on Earth, and that God has created and destroyed Life on Earth and elsewhere a number of times (sometimes to create one must first destroy).
They hinted at Biblical events of Punishment and Disaster had occurred in the past but not as in connection to Humans but the Biblical events are things that have happened within context to the Plot.
If we look at Ridleys comments about the Space Jesus... and the coincidental date of 2000 years ago, he said he did feel the Space Jesus was angle to go for... in that they saw Mankind misbehaving back in the Roman Times and they sent down a Emissary to try and put us back on track but we Sacrificed him... But they felt this was too on he NOSE!
But Ridley still felt the reasons are valid, i.e Mankind had upset the Engineers with how we started to behave and how our Worship had changed back in the Roman and Catholic Church times.
I feel those comments can hold true to that Disaster Scene... and so who ever this Race was... they had upset their Hierarchy/God and they was maybe punished for it.
