Thanks, good suggestions. I wanted to include those characters and had them in my original poll suggestion. But, I had to cull the list and they got cut. I need to leave room for characters from future movies, like the upcoming Alien: Covenant and any others. As well as, I want to be fair to all the chapters and make sure each installment had representation, I didn't seemed right to include all the characters from the first movie and others get little or no representation. Alien and Aliens already had the lion share of characters and rightly so. But it still is something I need to be sensitive too, because Prometheus and Covenant I suspect will have a decent contingent of characters too.

There's been a rumor that Newt will be returning ... (somehow?) in (Not Covenant) but the next movie as it will negate the existence of Alien3 (1992) and Alien: Resurrection (1997) from the story canon (is that how the word is used?)....

I heard the same, Neill Blomkamp was putting together script and it was all set to go but the brakes were applied to give priority to a follow-up prequel from Ridley Scott (ie Alien: Covenant) and a possible third Ridley Scott prequel might be in works.

Ridley Scott full out put a stop on any future plans on the Blomkamp sequel (as it was supposed to completely ignore every plot point/movie after Aliens) which was to be a direct sequel to Aliens.  Scott made this statement a couple months ago because he wants to direct the next three films and keep whatever story arc moving from Alien Covenant.

I have no problem with that. I still think the first two are cut above everything else, I do like the idea of prequels over sequels, plus given the subject matter it allows a stand alone film without having to tread on the previous films. Ridley Scott is a master, but it is interesting to see what other directors' takes on the franchise have been like Finch and Cameron. So, I do like mix between Scott and others and the timing of re-visiting the franchise every five years or so. Blomkamp would fit the bill if he could be reigned it a bit on the canon.
