This was something a good friend and I had talked about yesterday when we hung out for a bit and ate some froyo at a local joint. I had to wonder just what the heck Shaw was planning when she finally made it to the Engineer’s planet. She’s totally out of her element, totally vulnerable, and totally unprepared for any part of her journey. I imagine that she arrives, hair messed up, smelly, and probably low on food, with a beheaded android and they land in an area with a bunch of 9 foot tall aliens surrounding the ship. The door swings open and here she stands with the disembodied head of David clutching in one hand. I’m sure at this point the Engineers would be all O.o
I think best case scenario, she arrives and no one is there. They vacated. Because I doubt they’d be willing to reconsider keeping Shaw alive if she keeps a talking head with her as a translator.
I do wonder too what Shaw had in mind when she would arrive at the Engineer home world. She might threaten to drop the urn load unless the Engineers send some form of way to communicate with her. Still, I'm sure the Engineers would eventually find a way to take her down. Yet, the Engineers got to be careful since that juggernaut she is on is loaded with tons of urns filled with the black goo. If she held the Engineers at "gunpoint" to force communication, she would still have a hard time flying away from them in the massive expansiveness of space.
Ha ha love that image ATI
Indeed I Moon Girl
I think Dr Shaw however has NOTHING left, only her Faith, she may still hold on to if there is a AFTERLIFE, she would want to know WHY we was created, WHY the Engineers visited us and left those MAPS and then WHY they wanted to Destroy us.
I think if David said... look they are not nice people... let me DESTROY them and then i can try and find your answers from their City.... Dr Shaw would be NO... i want Face to Face Answers.
I think David had a different Agenda, while Dr Shaw would be willing to FACE Death as long as she had a chance to get the answers, i feel David is now Free, he thinks of himself as a Sentient Life Form and he wants to LIVE.
So those Questions are interesting, and we debated this a lot in-between Prometheus in 2012 and Alien Covenant in 2017. And a lot depends on a few things.
*How Aggressive/Malevolent a Species the Engineers are
*How much these Engineers knew about Mankind, our Creation and intended Destruction.
*How much they knew about the Star Maps, and what LV-223 was or had became.
*How many Engineers are alive and well on their home world.
Depending on these answers would affect how those Engineers would take to seeing Dr Shaw and David.

Maybe just maybe....
In a alternative story.... and to explain those Dead Engineers, maybe Davids Decapitated Head Acted like the Head of Medusa? Turned those Engineers to Stone lol

I started this topic last October.
I love the Engineer standing aghast in the background.
"I think best case scenario, she arrives and no one is there. They vacated. Because I doubt they’d be willing to reconsider keeping Shaw alive if she keeps a talking head with her as a translator."
That is funny.
You never know...the elders could take Dr. Shaw on tour in the populated areas of Planet 4 (maybe even off-planet) like a ventriloquist to entertain Engineers who have no vibrant-colored clothing.
These guys above are in desperate need of some comedy or maybe a romantic drama acted out by Dr. Shaw and David's head. Or she could juggle the head and a couple of urns...
