I have always loved the Alien movies since they first come out when I was a child and my parents let me watch. I own all the released parts and backup on Vudu. I also love the movie Prometheus and own a Vudu copy also but until reading articles on here I had no idea it was a prequel to aliens. I only watch internet TV on Roku so I don't see many trailers or commercials anymore so I rely on the movie itself to show me if I like it. And even though I do like Prometheus I feel as an Alien prequel, as I've learned now, it dropped the ball badly. Toe nothing about that movie connected me to my alien franchise I loved so much. And now my son's watch and love all the alien movies but they won't watch Prometheus because they don't believe it's an alien movie. They needed a better connection between them even if it would have been a small short ending scene showing us something similar but not yet evoled into the xenomorphs we know now. The true alien creatures are not cooked, they are what we love and want to see. I think prequels showing how they became there is a great idea as long as you make a clear connections with the fans. I have always wondered why they look how they do when entering humans since it matched what was first found in space but when a predator was infected it looked different. This would be a great opening to show us how they was designed with human DANA and using other alien kinds hold opportunity to create other various looking aliens with different roles to play in the hive. Maybe they are more then just a queen and her servants. Also how is a queen made? Are they from the humanoids I Prometheus? Maybe all we have seen in the past was the hunters, killers that are made from people. Maybe other infected species results in strategizing aliens, or commanders if you will. Different levels and ranks in the hive almost like an army setup. I would think that an AI machine attempting to make his creation perfect would test the DNA with multiple species not just humans themselves. This leaves doors for so many new possible paths and creatures to be created. And are all colonies linked? Could there be a main home world that they all "report" to after these mission they take in space to collect people to eat and procreate? Or is it just simply that a group that blindly kills and breeds with no other agenda's? That don't seem to match some of the critically thinking, planning and skilled aliens we have met in the past that didn't just attack and kill on site but withdrew when needed , drawed in victims or killed one of there own so many could escape. That seems like intense learning, planning and strategizing. Hopefully these things mean enough to enough fans that the people in charge of the new prequel sequel will take into account. Does anyone here agree or have opinions they would like to share back about these ideas?
