Were the Engineers able to use the weather as a defense?

In Prometheus, the silica storm begins after the Ampule Room is breached.  I think we all agreed the silica storm was in relation to the terra-forming capabilities of the Engineer pyraminds?  Then in AC, there is an extremely bad storm in the atmosphere above the chaos of Planet 4.  Did we decide these storms were a defensive mechanism of the gold-topped temple?  Just thinking out loud again & trying to find another concept to discuss!!  What do you all think?

I always thought the weather was manipulated by the Engineers.  Too many weather changes cannot be coincidence.

First off..... I love this question !!

Here are my thoughts....

In P i thought that after the ampule room had been "Tampered With" , somehow a change brought on several potential threats. Not only do the Murals change  and indicate human beings have affected the atmosphere. We then have the storm front !!

I believe this is an Engineer process which is bringing the storm on LV 223.

1. It was started after the Atmosphere change in the Ampule Room.

2. It blew from DIRECTLY behind the line of Pyramids which would be the angle to help clear the paths t the Pyramids,  yet if it was a random storm, why wouldnt it come from a different angle. there are so many to choose from lol

Terrible explanation im wiped again but i still say it was caused as defence or deterrent rather than mother nature.

The Storm covering the Planet could hide it from long scans or it may just turn out to be a Planet that can be moved by the Gods technology

Take This.... This is the blood of our lord

Remember also that in Alien LV-426 was subject to violent storms that only abated when Dallas, Lambert, and Kane approached the derelict Juggernaut.

lol did anyone else get this rather ironic sponsored ad? Damn Engineers ruining the tv reception with their weather defence storm XD

Great point though Cerulean Blue. I does seem more than a coincidence.

Oh my goodness, I hope the spammer advertisement is not coming from me?  Damn Engineers & their meddling!!  HAHA!!  Thank you all for your thoughts on this topics, as I hoped I was not the only one who thought about this, way too much!!

Cerulean Blue - Great topic! And great question as well because it includes another question: Is/Was David able to control this 'defensive mechanism'?

About Alien: Covenant

Alien: Covenant Movie

Release Date:

May 19th, 2017

Plot Synopsis:

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in ALIEN with ALIEN: COVENANT, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with PROMETHEUS -- and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world -- whose sole inhabitant is the "synthetic" David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.
