What if we never see a direct movie connecting to Alien? Would you be at piece?

I would like to see a connection, but I would also be fine with it if the series went elsewhere leaving a mystique to Alien. It seems the longer the series goes on, the more mysteries are created. 

At this point should we expect a direct connection? Would it be better to go elsewhere?

Yes, i would be at peace. As long as they are not trying to recapture the "magic". But after AC, I have no ilusions as I did after Prometheus.

OP should be PEACE lol!

Yes, RS acknowledged Alien had a magic that could not be re captured.

I would at peace if the prequels never connected to Alien.

But, I would not be at peace if they just abandoned Prometheus-Covenant and left the story arc hanging in lieu for a new direction. As polarising and disjointed as they are, they do need closure... and RS deserves a chance to bring it all to a close

personally I no longer care. with the direction hes going iv lost my interest really. ill watch awakening but im not excited about it in the way I was about AC so wont be going to the theatre to see it. the only comment Ridley has made that is consistent is that the prequel series will tie into alien so im sure wel see a connection whether we want one or not.

I would be disappointed....

I think we will get a connection but its the case of will we see one in 5 years? 10 years?

The longer we go with no Answers... the more chance is we could just get a Re-boot of the Franchise i fear.

But on the Plus side it allows us to use the clues to come up with our own answers in our heads in the way that pleases us ;)

I am with Ali81 I no longer care. 

The question of whom the Jockey was and its "cargo" has been devalued and mostly between Prometheus and Covenant. Whats so frustrating is it was so straight froward. From the opening of Prometheus it was obvious the sacrificial acolyte was connected to the answer. Somehow these guys messed up and out of that emerged the cargo. Prometheus should have made clear the ALIEN lifecycle was created as a conceit to mimic and replace/contaminate  the sacrificial lifecycle. It would have been obvious then that the Juggernaut left LV223 and got into trouble as the Engineers tried to abandon LV223. Hence the cargo hence the warning.

Similarly Elizabeths story could have been so simple she is infected by the pathagen through insemination and what is revealed in the next story is that exorcising the trilobite did not exorcise the down steam consequences of the pathogen on her. How much more interesting that the person of faith is transformed by the intervention than the mad robot angle. Elizabeth fall could have echoed the fall of the Engineers but hay ho we got what we got.

couldn't have explained it better. at some point someone has had the brilliant idea to make it all about the AI after Prometheus thus abandoning everything Prometheus set up. between the mural giving us a hint into the original xeno's part in engineer society to the connection between lv223 and the derelict and the elders there was a huge story there. they could have done so much more, even creating a race above the engineers, wars etc, yet its been sand bagged n the prequels are focusing on just 1 thing now with a Cpl of monsters thrown in to shut us up. I said ages ago the prequels have to end in a way that does the derelict scene and original movie justice. to me, David being responsible doesn't do that. so keep it mysterious is my preference but if not, meh, don't care now. thanks to AC and Ridley's comments, iv lost all interest. ill watch awakening but ill wait for a good stream.

I don't want any sequel to Alien Covenant, because Covenant was too brilliant and perfect

I think those working on the Project made a right Pigs Ear of it all....   In Spaights ideas it was simple.

Sacrificial Goo, Breaks down DNA into a substance that then passes on the DNA traits of who ever consumed the Sacrificial Goo.     Hence these Engineers encountered something where the Xeno DNA Originated from and they used the Sacrificial Goo on it to allow them to use its DNA to Create a whole manner of related Organisms...  In their Hubris using the Sacrificial Creation Tool on a Deadly Parasitic Organism proved their undoing.

Then FOX decided to change what the Goo does as they go along and make a mess of what was  simply a Creation Tool.

If they continues with Spaights Engineers as far as the reasons for why they do this,  it shows us they Engineered their Race to make themselves Perfect and by doing so they eradicated their ability to Procreate.   This could then mean the Sacrificial Scene they hoped to achieve a Humanoid that could help them Procreate.

Thus at some point they encounter the Parasitic Organism that infected some Engineers and they Gave Birth to a Xeno Ancestor related Organism...  some Engineers saw this as a different way that they could now GIVE Birth to New Life and saw the result as interesting...  So they had a great regard and worship for the results of this Organism.

And began to experiment on it with their Creation Tool, in order to Perfect this Organism and doing so ended up costing them.

Thats just my interpretation of Prometheus though, which the Jon Spaights Alien Engineers provided to be the Rosetta Stone to decode a lot of what Prometheus showed us...  now we have AC and other comments by RS, while some still applies.... i think the new route does change a few things.
