After watching all the AC extras and reading the latest news/articles about the Alien franchise I wanted to see where everyone thinks it's gonna go. The extra content provide some clues, especially that David experiments one. It strongly implied David is going to use Daniels to create an alien queen and perfect the Xenomorph. I've read Fox isn't thrilled or excited to make a sequel but I think it would be really stupid to not build off that cliffhanger. Another rumor I read was Fox is going to reboot the series and start fresh but that's even more ridiculous. They really just need to give AC a sequel to tie everything back into Alien then they can do whatever they want. At least finish the story. I think the next movie has potential to be amazing if Scott focuses on creating a queen and has David perfect the alien. Then have it answer how that ship crashed and how it leads into the original Alien. On a sidenote I am sad that it looks like that Neil B movie will never happen. But I guess there's still hope.
If the queen mentioned by David means a real alien queen, that's OK for me, but I want something different. I mean I don't want to remeet the alien queen from Aliens. I'd like to see a different monster, something fresh and shocking would be needed.
I think that covenant is going to do really well on blueray and dvd.
My big question about the queen is why they even nead one. there was already eggs in alien covenant. fox also might want to kill of the main protagonist or else there wouldent be a story. if this happened near the end it could be possible though.

Rumors could just be Rumors... i covered the topic of the Stance of FOX and possibly what they are thinking now a number of times recently... i will cover it again when i am not busy so maybe tomorrow.
As far as the Queen, i hope they have not Caved in and are indeed going the route of a Queen and by that something very close to the Queen in Aliens and this is what laid the Eggs on the Derelict... This is just a Lazy and Fanboy pleasing Plot. Hell they are even saying Ripley will connect back to it... hopefully not directly.
We maybe need to look at other ways David could mean a Queen?
A Queen in Relation to his Experiments simply means that he had used Dr Shaw as a vital ingredient to Perfect his Creation and get those Eggs... and so it is likely David simply means that Daniels will provide him the means to get Multiple Eggs.
It does not mean and i hope it does not... that David infects her with a Face Hugger and she gives birth to a Queen Chest Buster... this would be total Fan Service.
If we ignore Alien Covenant and we look at the Crossing Prologue and Imagine if after David puts Dr Shaw in Cryo-sleep, at this point David then enters his Creation Agenda Mode and wants to Create some Experiments.
David no doubt was interested in the Baby-Squid Shaw was carrying in Prometheus, and there are no clues to suggest David knew what became of this Organism especially after the Juggernaught Crash.
So David would be wondering what would Shaw have birthed and had she been put into Cryo-sleep what could the Company or himself had gained from Studying this Hybrid Birth
David was interested in what the Black Goo does, you would think he would want to explore more of what this does and indeed in Alien Covenant this is what he gets up to.
But going back to before they arrive at Paradise/Planet 4 we have to ask what could be crossing Davids mind as far as the Black Goo and what he knows at this point.
A Logically Starting Point for David would be indeed figuring how Dr Shaw had been infected with that Trilobite Fetus... was it just the Parasitic Pathogen entering her Womb, or infecting her Eggs?
If So David has the Black Goo and thats all he needs....
Or did it need a Male with infected Sperm? i am sure David would be pondering which of these resulted in the Trilobite, and if he figures it was a Male...
Then David needs a Male Sperm Donor.... ha ha what if there are some he can get from these Engineers? Or David could be like ok... "so i dont have Sperm, what happens when the Black Goo Directly infects a Egg Cell"
And you can be sure these kinds of things he had tried out while on Paradise after the Bombardment...
But now he is on the Covenant.. making Daniels a Queen does not have to mean her giving Birth to a Queen... looking at the effects of the Black Goo in Prometheus and Fifield, and especially the earlier concepts.. and then the Hammerpedes.. you have to wonder if a Black Goo infection controlled in a certain way could Create a Human/Xenomorph Hybrid and then ponder if this was a Female Human, what becomes of her Reproductive Organs... How would a Hybrid Procreate.
But alas FOX had panicked to give us Alien Covenant a more Alieny movie intended to directly connect to Alien via direct sequels.
David had just TWO Face Huggers and so maybe the Lazy Route is Face Hugger + Daniels = Xenomorph Queen = Eggs.
But when they planned TWO movies to Alien and the Derelict i think this kind of route is to straight forwards to require TWO movies to show us Daniels Bursts a Queen Xeno, who lays Eggs then these Eggs get on a Engineer Ship.
But i would not put it past FOX feeling the THINGS they changed to making a Prometheus Sequel to be more a Alien Prequel like bring back the XENOMORPHS did not improve on the disappointment of Prometheus but actually did worse.
So i would not put it past FOX, going... Ok we need a Xenomorph Queen and we have to Link Ripley back to the Story.
Sad... but i do think there is at least a 1/3 chance they will do just this.
