The screenshots make it look like middle-series Red Dwarf, or maybe Dr Who.

Ok.

These will be as good as if not better than the first two cult classic films.

You think Alien and Aliens are cult classics?

How many variations on "isolated group of humans encounter Xenomorphs; most die; some escape; the existence of Xenomorphs continue to be unknown to humanity at large" can be repeated within the Alienverse?

I don't think they're liked by a particular group of people, which is my understanding of what a cult classic is.

It's all right, Scott is explaining all that with the prequels!

Is the answer "the engineers put a DNA weakness in us that makes us forget about the xenomorphs minutes after we last saw one"?

I mean, to paraphrase Wilde: to narrowly escape from a hellish murderous alien species once and then somehow fail to warn humanity is misfortune; but to do it repeatedly starts to become foolish.

Probably a few more.... but yes it can seem a bit formulaic when repeated too often.

I'm not fully up to speed with all the Alien 'Universe' films, I've seen many of them but not all.

At risk of sounding like I'm trying to defend something....

Wasn't there a bit about sinister companies / governments wanting to use the xenos as weapons or for their own benefit (in Aliens, and Prometheus, and possibly some others), so they'd be actively controlling and severely limiting the information spread so they could carry on sending out poor saps to get themselves all in a pickle.

Also, just like in real life, a lot of warnings go unheeded I guess. After all "It'll never happen to me"
