One of my biggest complaints about Alien: Covenant was that it convoluted the entire franchise, especially as it pertains to the all-important Xenomorphs. It was disappointing to discover that these “perfect” intergalactic predators were the inventions of a robot (not an ancient species as I had previously assumed) with too much time on his hands. It turns out, however, that I might have been right after all. According to the movie’s novelization, David (played by Michael Fassbender) was merely a copycat.

In the video below, Project: ACHERON reads the specific passages relating to David’s experimentation. Basically, he claims to have found the face-hugger (the “ova-morph”) we saw in his laboratory. It’s hinted that The Engineers also experimented with Xenos, but it’s confirmed that these are a pre-existing species.
Of course, it doesn’t help the fact that Alien: Covenant is a convoluted mess!
