Ridley Scott decided against featuring the original Xenomorph (the titular Alien of the film series) in the film, as "the sequels squeezed him dry, he did very well... and no way am I going back there." Instead, this being an indirect prequel to Alien (1979), he decided to feature a Xenomorph ancestor/parent. However, criticism from fans who complained about the absence of the famous creature after the film's release made Scott change his mind, and include the creature in the sequel Alien: Covenant (2017).

David is an android and, therefore, does not require sustenance. While taking linguist lessons and before the humans exit stasis, he is eating and drinking. However, there are various possible reasons why David is eating and drinking. It could be because he wants to experience food and drink to become more human (androids in the previous Alien films were seen eating and/or drinking). It is also likely that androids, like any machine, require fuel of some sort. Food is simply a biological form of fuel. See more »
As a self-confessed Alien fan boy I've found it difficult to put down some unbiased thoughts around Prometheus. After the first viewing I was disappointed, I was expecting a direct Alien prequel and this isn't it. The film was better second time as I could leave all my preconceived ideas behind and enjoy it for what it is. There are some good performances (particularly Michael Fassbender), some great set-pieces and for the thinkers it proposes some answers to the big questions: who are we and where did we come from. That's not to say the film is without its flaws, it has plot holes (what doesn't?), can be clumsy in its delivery and at points to fast paced. However, it's enjoyable - which is all you can really ask for and from me is praise indeed!
