“This is not a continuation of the world building done with Alien in Prometheus and Covenant but I still feel this is in the same universe as those worlds,” says Emery, who was second unit photographer on The Matrix and Alien: Covenant, and cinematographer on The Wolverine. “Ridley is particularly interested in using androids as an analogue for the human race and questioning what happens if we elevate the humans who created the androids to the status of god.”
“No one has ever seen anything like this before,” - Ross Emery

I hope that it's not how the Xeno was supposed to become bio-mechanical (infecting David) because that would be so lame even though I understand the idea. Unfortunately it could be possible that it's how Ridley would have done it if it would've been up to him. Giving the android an even bigger role would be stupid, if we look at RBW being a bit like the next prequel would've been partially. The guys in robes at 4:15 look like they could be like Engineers, like those wearing robes in Prometheus (cut scene). 4:15 is my favorite part of the whole clip, it looks very mysterious and therefore interesting. Actually the robe people remind me a bit of the emperor from Star Wars.
I have a somewhat dumb idea, what if the Engineers captured David, used their earlier version of the Xeno so they won't bother with his creation. Impregnated David with, it gets bio-mechanical and they mass-produce it. He could have a role but isn't the creator of the final monster. To me this seems better compared to what Alien Covenant suggested and also like a middle-finger to David. Maybe they use another metal for it to become that way, something that is only on some planets that they control. Like Janek said they wouldn't create that thing on their home-planet.
I really hope that they do not try linking The Alien into RBW.
I'm going to expand the short story I have in the works 'ORIGIN' and put it up to be read...then the Fandom can choose and decide what origin-point they prefer for The Alien from all the possibilities being thrown around.
That said, ORIGIN will be a unique view of it's start in the universe.

Blackwinter-witch RBW has obvious DNA of Prometheus and BR. I have only seen the 1st episode and will try to treat it as its own thing. After all, RS only wrote the first couple episodes I think. Just take it in as a good sci fi series.
RBW has enough raw potential to stand fully on it's own. I would like to see it be treated and handled/developed as it's own, unique and distinct universe rather than connecting to ALIEN, BR and such.
If they try connecting, I worry that it will impose limits on what they can do, and handicap their being able to fully use the potential this series has in abundance.

If they share the same universe, that could cause all kinds of canonical havoc and fan push back. "Gotta keep 'em separated."

‘Raised by Wolves’: Ridley Scott Explains That Monstrous Finale

Conversations at Home with RAISED BY WOLVES
...and a souvenir
Raised by wolves is a sort of an adaptation of Prometheus 2: Paradise Lost.
"Now that you’ve watched the first season of the HBO Max series Raised by Wolves, I’m sure you have a lot of questions. Like what exactly is Mother’s baby? Why did everyone want to go to Kepler-22b? What is up with that pentagonal temple? Why hasn’t Campion been affected by the radioactive food? What exactly are the visions everyone keeps seeing? What’s going on with the creatures that are devolving? How did the ship survive going through the middle of the planet? And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. The fact is, Raised by Wolves Season 1 was loaded with WTF moments and tons of intriguing mysteries, which made for a thrilling ride.
Thankfully, shortly after watching the finale, I landed an extended interview with creator and showrunner Aaron Guzikowski where no question was off limits."
