    The birth scene is in fact fantastic and terrifying, but then other than David making a pun, no one ever mentions it again. No one in the film cares. No one does anything with the squid baby. It’s just left to grow and do whatever, because “Hey! We need a big monster for the end.”

    Also, David mentions specifically that he studies all human languages to reconstruct the first proto-language that Shaw theorized comes from the Engineers.
