The End of David and the Beginning of the Alien?

Trying to figure out why Ridley Scott thinks the Alien itself is worn out so to speak and wants to create AI as the main protagonist when they can go hand in hand.

The story of David is not complete because he's not fully evolved the "perfect organisim."

I think it should play out and have it blow up in David's face, get out of control, and have an Alien infestation destroy his God complex.

Making him in his failure and defeat realize he's not perfect and ALSO ... "mortal after all."

But hey what do I know. :)

 Welcome. Ridley has said a lot of things over the years and then different writers and drafts were involved too (many members can and have expanded on that, but that is the broad brush version).

It has been discussed having David fail and possibly birthing the xeno proper and then dying.

Well there is a bit to tell in this tale... and Ridley Scott knew where he wanted to take it after Alien Covenant,  Ridley Scott has also said we would begin to see how the Xenomorph was created and it felt Bio-Mechanical and he has also hinted we have not yet arrived to the 1979 Xenomorph.  So there is some Evolution to go.

The theme with Prometheus is Creator Sub-Creates, Sub-Creation Rebels, and Sub-Creates and Repeat which logically means that Davids Creation will turn out not as planned and Rebel against him too

Who knows - maybe SpaceJockey from A79 - David. He want destroy Earth with eggs, but get infested by new biomechanical alien specie and will give birth for new Alien breed and crushed on LV-426. And it's all with WY special crew - several people understood all dangerous of this mission and sabotage David-WY mission.

I would not mind if they kill David early in the next movie so we will be left with the aliens and the humans. Killing David could be a compensation for having him getting a lot of focus in two movies and he is not even human. Unfortunately Scott seems to be interested in the robot crap so that probably will not happen.

"Making him in his failure and defeat realize he's not perfect and ALSO ... "mortal after all." "

I like it, hopefully they will make it something like that. That is a good idea Last Autobot, I like how you used that quote from Prometheus.

Please don’t make David the SJ, that would suck donkey balls if they did that. It would not even make sense scale-wise.
