This came to my mind after reading the reply of @Vinomorph in this topic http://www.alien-covenant.com/topic/44765 It is the dialogue between Ash and the crew of Nostromo in the Alien script from 1978

 

I consider this very interesting because it gives us more ideas about the role of David in the future sequels and in the first Alien movie. 

I mean the fact that Ash admires the Alien form. I was thinking if David and Ash interacted in some point or (based on the ending of covenant and thinking if probably David linked/interchanged memories, his programming, to walter's body) David could linked/interchanged memories with the whole weyland's operative system (through "mother"). I don't know but it's very interesting point!

Also, I don't know how to interpret Ash's last words it's kind of similar to David's phrases (like the reference to the poem of ozymandias)

Nice point, @Ashtekar. It's interesting to see how the crew of the Nostromo would never take Ash for a synthetic if not by the order 937 and the following events. It makes me to think about David's personality in Alien:Covenant - a lot more human and emotional, and so a lot more convincing while acting among humans. In the first scene, we see a very robotic David interacting with Peter Weyland, look how much he has 'evolved'. That damn movie gave us a lot of new questions unanswered lol

David -> Walter -> Muthur -> Ash

I think David's personality it's inherent in his programmation. Walter said that the David model was so human that discomforted people and David replied to that saying that Walter had lost his capacity to formulate questions or being creative. Walter disagrees with David about the Alien and it's capacity to destroy life forms and I believe that David it's unique on thinking that way (I mean his internal code). For that reason is that it would not be surprising if David could manipulate Muthur in some way or if at some point David interacted with Ash (reading some information from muther?) but there is a hole plot on that because weyland changed the internal code of future models but if you think in weyland being like an actual tech company, the fact that they released other robots doesn't mean that they could recycle "programming code" from the previous versions, maybe the answer could be a "glitch"?
