Alien Ancestor IV by NachoMon Alien Ancestor IV by NachoMon
The white-skinned workers are the main force of Engineers. On my version of Prometheus they´re the sentinels who send the biomechanoid drones and wake up the ancient Space Jockeys to check the human visitors from earth.

The 1st generation of Workers were androginous hermaphrodite creatures. Powerful, smart, almost perfect. Eventually, they decided being free to stablish their own civilization and to quit their seed breeding mission, considering themselves the perfect lifeform their ancient creators were searching for.  This rebellion caused an intergalactic war and most of them were anihilated. The Destroyers (Xenomorph) were created by Space Jockeys on that age, evolved from their primitive Guard Drones, specially to exterminate all those Rebel Angels to their extinction.

Then, the Ancient Gods decided to slightly "nerf" their creation, giving birth to the 2nd generation of Engineer Workers, with dual sex and specific tasks. The female ones were navigators and explorers, while the male ones were focused on heavy duties. Both them are trained for battle, as strategic masterminds and lords of the Xenomorph Hive.

Some few survivors of 1st generation Engineers are now loose on space, hiding on ancient outposts and experimenting with the black mutagen goo in order to become it a sort of massive weapon to use against their "fathers" Creations. Their anger and hate againts all them have survived to the ages.

All these ideas have been borrowed from different ancient religious myths about creation, just adapted to this Sci-Fi Lore.

Yeah I know that feel. When I saw Prometheus and this same year Covenant my thought has been all the time "What are you doing with your own classic masterpiece, Ridley?"

OOh. So beautiful animations. Really breathtaking! I know all the worlds of Giger came from the dreams, the nightmares, those obssesive landscapes without end, plenty full of creatures, but with that feel of solitude. Fpor the movies would be great to take that feel. All thos biomechanoid landscapes and the same feel of solitude and primary fear. That the main characters would say "yeah, those places are connected with our dreams, on same way our subconsncience is connected with our creators"

I think Ridley had the need to tell that story he wanted about the madness, the perversion of creation and all that. I´m OK with that... There were no need anyways to do those weird prequels and ruining the continuity of their own saga.

I am not, I deny the prequels and don't accept them as canon. 
And it's sad, because the premise of an android, rebelling against it's creator and choosing to play god itself and as oppose to it's "father" love it's creations is a very interesting premise and I think Ridley could pull of a new unique franchise around that idea wonderfully because it lends it self perfectly to his cinematography. 

But the prequels just are just crammed into the alien lore, without thought or finesse. I find them frustrating and poor story telling. it's like he wanted to exploite the basic ideas of bladerunner and used alien as a growth bed for that concept, twisting the lore (poorly) to fit his narrative. 

But that just my opinion. I'm sticking with Alien and Aliens and earthhive as my go to Alien lore =) the rest can go suck an Egg

Also annoys me to no end, people speak of Alien as Ridleys creation. sure he directed the first movie and did a bang up job. But he did not write the script, he did not design the alien. What the man did, he did well, but the Xenomorphs are not his baby, Fox just granted him control. 
I feel James Cameron would have done a better job of making prequels, if that was even necessary.
A new "third" alien movie based on the Earth hive book, with Michael Biehn in the lead, with a good actress as Newt could be a super interesting premise

Si, desde el momento que he tratado a los Space Jockeys y a los Ingenieros de la peli como entes distintos, ya era opción aparte incluir los biotrajes espaciales para ellos, y la verdad es que les quedan muy bien.  Mi versión es que son obreros para múltiples funciones.

You should seriously consider writing your own comic with these ideas.  Even as a fanwork it would be superior to most of the 'canon' stuff
