Yes i member Micheal Beihn was the first to break information about Newt being in Alien 5 and a potential passing of the Torch and also set 20+ years after Aliens....
Also of interest is the Concept work prior seemed to be set less than 20 years and it was reported the movie is set more closer to Aliens... but then after Alien Covenant name change and potential Synopsis/Plot Change for the sequel to Prometheus... we see that Alien 5 could well be set at a latter date.
Also i found Beihn's comments on he was informed Alien Covenant was set THOUSANDS of years prior to Aliens as very interesting.
To me it seems that Ridley and Fox have sat down and discussed the Prometheus Franchise Plans and Aliens Sequel Plans and made a few changes to Prometheus 2 and Alien 5 Plots..

MZ we ant be sure what happened... to explain the delay...
We could have it the Sulaco was wandering in Space for so long.. but we done that with Aliens and the Narcissus and Ripley has aged over 30 years since then well Weaver has, but she could pass for 20 odd years older instead...
So i would assume after Aliens Ripley thinks the Xeno threat is done, and goes about her normal life until a Event changes everything....
Which is why i have a hunch maybe the Ship is actually one from Paradise instead? Maybe Davids maybe not... but it would rule out the Question why does the company wait 20 years to go back to LV-426 or if they go earlier why does the "£!"$ hit the fan so long afterwards and why is Ripley involved then.... surely if the company goes back to LV-426 they would have to cover it up to Ripley as if Ripley is not bothered... why would she be bothered 20 years later. And so if the company return to LV-426 10 years latter how did they contain it for 10 years... or maybe they found a way too?
I have a feeling Alien 5 and Alien Covenant will have some tie in, i think thats why Prometheus 2 was changed a bit and Alien 5 so that they can make a Peice of the Jigsaw that fits them in as opposed to step on each others toes..
So i think Paradise is far away and this is where the Ship comes from, i would assume also the Covenant ship mission to Paradise takes it some considerable time like 20 years or so at least.
A few things we noticed from the Concept work....
*Ripley looked younger than Weaver does now. (Hicks too).
*The Derelict/Juggernaut looks in some state of despair even more so than the Derelict in Alien...
*We see the Derelict/Juggernaut in a Hanger, but we also see a Queen on the lose and the trees in the back ground look Oriental (Yutani?)
*We see what appear to be none Humans... i.e Synthetics who look less Human, less realistic.... maybe Yutani Androids?
*We see Asian looking personnel and the Korean Flag.
*Some kind of Hive with a person being morphed into the Hive or changing into something.
*Different style of Egg and Face Huger, and a Different style of Xenomorph.
*Ripley in some kind of Bio-Mechanical Space Jockey Related Suit/
