Stop reading if you don't want to have the movie spoiled.... Last chance..... Just finished watching Alien: Covenant and interested to hear your thoughts. I will say that I liked it and I think if you're into Alien folklore, you'll enjoy the movie too because it'll provide some answers as to where the Xenomorph came from. Allow me first to say that I knew David was behind creating the the "perfect organism." I knew that Elisabeth Shaw was going to be used as an experimental host. I thought though that she would end up birthing the queen alien. So here's how I see the Alien series being laid out. Prometheus is part one. Alien: Covenant is part 3. Alien is part 5 and Aliens is part 6. All the rest, we don't really care about. Ridley Scott has already said that he will produce probably 2 more with the next one to be called Alien: Awakening. So the reason why I think Alien:Covenant is part 3 is because we still don't have the answer of why the Engineers created the humans and why they wanted to kill the humans. I think Alien:Awakening will explain this more and will explore what happened with David and E Shaw while on their flight and how he came to kill her and experiment on her and how David came to drop the black goo on the Engineers home planet and kill them. From there, Ridley Scott will need to create another Alien movie to fill in after Covenant and 1979 Alien. After all, we first see the Alien on LV-426 but the question will still to be answered of how it got there. Since David created the Xenomorph (or the closest Alien form to the Xenomorph), the question has to be answered to explain how it still gets there. This is what I think. The real Walter that was damaged in battle with David ends up repairing himself and wakes up with nobody there since everybody left and ended up back on the Covenant ship. Walter decides that with his duty to help, he somehow manages to fix and navigate the Engineer spacecraft on the planet that David and E Shaw crashed landed on the planet with. He then sets a course to the new planet that was supposed to be colonized and when he arrives, he sees that David has been experimenting on the embryos and humans in cryosleep. Walter manages to wake the remaining humans and a battle begins between Walter/humans against David/Xenomorphs. Also, by this time, David has had time to perfect the Alien to be the version that we know it from 1979 Alien. So the battles begins and it ends up that David leaves the planet maybe headed back to earth to release his creation to destroy mankind and Walter doesn't want that to happen and they basically battle it out on the ship. This causes the ship to crashland on what we know as LV-426 and the rest is history. That's my take. I'd like to hear your thoughts on the movie and the potential future plot points.
