Maybe this was covered and I missed it, but what are your thoughts on the genesis of the acid blood?  Is the acid blood actually a result of the xeno gestation occurring in the stomach, where hydrochloric acid is in abundance?   If so, would a neomorph have acid blood if the spore was orally ingested by the host/victim?

To my AI question, would you trust an AI caretaker if you were traveling through space in cryostasis, say for a decade, or more?  Rogue code, glitches, hackers?  I would go into that endeavor with a 50/50 mindset on staying alive.

The facehugger too has acid blood. At some point it was speculated a resemblance with the acid lead batteries to explain the eggs' long life when hosts are not around. Not sure about the lifespan of xenomorphs. Do the neomorphs have acid blood too?

You have to trust an AI when traveling through space in cryostasis, MUTHER is also an AI and something has to wake you up from your sleep when the time comes.

didn't see any acidic blood from the neomorph that got killed and im sure RS would have deliberately focused on it if they had any. the neomorph and xenomorph are different species imo so it would make sense they don't both have acidic blood

Well the blood of the facehugger which attached on Lope did burn his face, so it's most likely the adult one has it also. But shooting this thing in a spaceship was very reckless. 

As for the purpose, maybe it was helping with the reattachment of lost limbs.

I was actually saying I don't think the neomorph has acidic blood regardless of where in the body it gestates. we know the facehuggers and xeno have acidic blood but being that the neomorph is a a different species it wouldn't automatically have acidic blood as a characteristic. im basically giving my opinion on the end question in the first paragraph of the op

Even the Worm from Prometheus was acid blooded, so it is very likely they have acid for blood.

it may well have but I didn't get the impression when oram blasted the neomorph that it have acidic blood.

A lot of these problems come from NOT sticking to the Plan/Source Material...

Prometheus Evolved from Jon Spaights Alien Engineers in this draft Fifield was more Xenomorph looking well a Hybrid and had ACID BLOOD... 

In Prometheus the Hammerpedes had ACID Blood, the Trillobite is inconclusive, however the Full Scenes show us the Engineer had no Face Burn until after the Trillobite fight, if you watch the Full Scene or even Face Burn one, we can see for a few shots the Face is Burnt then not, then Burnt...

To me it looks like TWO Trilobite Scenes was shot, one where the Engineer at the end suffered a Acid Burn, then they decided to re-do the Engineer vs Shaw Scene and while in make up, no doubt got Ian Whyte to do another Trillobite Scene...  The Final Scene we see in both Theatrical and deleted Scene appears to be a mash up of both potentially shot Trillobite vs Engineer Scene.

So its looks more likely that the Trilobite was intended to have ACID BLOOD

The Reason Because what was contained in the Urns is Genetically related to the Xenomorph/Deacon in the Mural, this appeared to be the Original idea...

Alien Covenant has muddied the waters because they never took much notice on previous source material.

Does the Neomorph have ACID Blood?  Who knows i think this is one of those inconclusive things, so we cant say either way.
