David(s): Strangers or sharing a 'darker' mission?
Posted Jul-25-2016 4:27 AM
Hi All :)
First topic I have started here, so apologies if this has been covered before. However, if my reading of this site is on point then it would seem one doesn't need much of an excuse to discuss any and all things ALIEN, even if covering old ground ;)
So, David! We know that Prometheus David (D1) will be on Paradise and we know that another perhaps less individualistic (doesn't dye his hair?) David (D2) will be arriving on Paradise with the Covenant.
Now I could ramble on all day as my mind wonders at the potential that AC has, particularly in relation to the goo and David; but my question is more focused on whether the two Davids are possibly working on the same agenda.
Throughout the ALIEN series androids have been known for being rather 'Company' orientated rather than 'people' droids (Bishop apart)- and there is obviously a hidden (from most human employees) agenda to discover, learn about and possibly capture a Xeno or related DNA.
If the Covenant has located Paradise more at random or by chance then I would be more inclined to believe that the two Davids have no connection, yet!
However, perhaps WY have info. on Paradise and LV-223 direct from D1. Perhaps WY is now run/directed by AI (covertly or otherwise)?
If the above is the case then it could be that D2 is a helper of D1 and they may be working together to try to capture, learn about or develop the Xeno for future uses - with the Covenant crew being the expendable assets or suitable test subjects. . .
Personally, I would kind of like the Covenant's mission to be a bit more random but it just seems too much of a coincidence to me if that is the case. The idea that D1 has more influence, power and knowledge than we may have first thought is truly terrifying, especially given that he is essentially 'unplugged' now - and who knows what he may have evolved himself (and Shaw!?) into given access to all the Engineers' tech and goo . . .
It could also pan out that D2 is more like a Bishop droid and perhaps fights against D1 in AC. That would be quite cool but I think we know who would be coming out on top ;)
OK, bit of a ramble there but what do you think will happen to the two Davids? Do you think there might be a previous connection prior to the mission or more something that will develop over the course of the film?
Be very interested to hear peoples' thoughts on this . . .
