Its Action Time

So I haven't seen, and possibly just haven't found anyone talking about yet, that there does seem to be two distinctly different species of engineers. In the beginning, we see one which appears to be seeding a planet with life. It's spacecraft more round, and dish shaped. His Body being very similar to human form.

Near the end of the movie, We see another, with more of a bio mechanical look to it, very similar to a Xeno from Aliens.

Some have theorized that it is a suit... but i'm not buying that. Look at that neck... seamless.


And completely different style ship, which goes along with the Bio-Mechanical style of the suit. 

Now reading about Alien Covenant, that there may be several species of humanoid creatures, like us, and engineers... This was probably our first glimpse at that. I'm so curious to find out more about these two drastically different kinds. And are there any more we have not seen?

Bumped because this has been discussed quite a bit but others whom have picked this apart might want to weigh in and bring the member up to speed?

Yes Please.  As someone still relatively new here myself, I would love to hear the thoughts of the masses here on the suit/skin!

A popular theory is two factions.One that stayed true to a certain path,while the other split and became obsessed with technology.It's comparable to the novel Revelation Space if you've ever read it.

Nothing the God of biomechanics wouldn't let you in heaven for

yes same species. some have gone their own way, for reasons yet to be revealed. one theory mentioned was that the originals worship the xeno. they may have seeded other worlds to give life to the xeno. this splinter faction r trying to stop the spread, hence why we were marked for death by them. a war broke out between the 2 factions
