Just some fan fiction ideas:
Might try to write a script with them.....but if not...i'd like to see someone run with them.
Arriving at LV223, colonial marines find a Weyland-Yutani starship orbiting the planet.
Searching the vessel, they discover it's the colony ship Covenant.
No signs of the crew or the colonists.
MUTHUR's data and video/holo logs have been wiped. The ship is a derelict.
The marines turn their search toward the planet below. Finding structures, they send a squad to investigate.
David has transported the colonists to the surface of LV223.
He is working in one of the tombs. Plenty of pathogen and Juggernauts to keep him occupied for decades.
Hammerpedes have broken into sixty of the colonist's sleep chambers, killing all and leaving decaying moldy corpses. Disappointed in losing valuable specimens(Humans), David has done his best to destroy the vile creatures(Hammerpedes).
David continues replacing his 'blood' with pathogen. He will soon have the perfect defense: You hadn't dare kill him! The next Engineer to behead him is in for a real surprise.
MUTHUR is sentient. It understands situations. It has reasoned the starship and the colony are in danger. She will do what it takes to protect the crew, but David has taken/locked the majority of ship protocols from her.
MUTHUR has mutiny and pirate orders, but David has overwritten most of these. She does have a limited number of fail-safe commands, that he has yet to find.
A cat and mouse game between David ensues.....MUTHUR is able to send short encrypted messages to known marine outposts. With the simple message: 'LV223'
to be continued...maybe.
I laughed out loud when I envisioned another Engineer ripping David's head off and the pathogen spurting out!
...But, replacing his blood with the pathogen is intriguing but seems like kind of a bad move because... if he did get decapitated or otherwise catastrophically injured again, everyone around him would die and there wouldn't be anyone around for him to charm into repairing him.
...Then he'd just be a head...laying around on a planet...angstily quoting poetry...for who knows how long.
(If somebody decides to run with the David-replaces-his-blood-with-the-pathogen story line, that's definitely how it should end up! XD )
I really like the Mother is sentient idea. I think this is sort of implied in the novel, when she banters with Walter while all the humans are in hypersleep. She would make a worthy opponent for David. :)
