If the movie's ending was like the novel's, we could've had Advent play as David begins transmitting. I think the ending would've been a much more interesting setup for the sequel.
I just feel like only the fans will see this and therefore it was wasted opportunity. Or was it?

Well i must admit i am EXTREMELY grateful for that link.
I loved every second of "Advent" and i am going to break it down to its last molecule. Finally some answers and something to get stuck into.
Many Many Thanks.
Take This.... This is the blood of our lord

Poor Walter indeed! Well, at least I can console myself over the probable loss of Daniels by looking forward to Walter's sad realization. Should make for some compelling character development. Plus, David keeps getting more interesting by the minute.
Which digital purchase included Advent?? I'll admit, sadly I had to watch a tiny, low quality upload on youtube :(

Lots of great stuff in the Advent message.
Remove the scenes from the movie from it, and edit more in the style of the movie, and this would have made an awesome epilogue placed right at the end of the movie before the credits roll.
That is where it will be viewed every time I watch the movie from now on.

You know, I also thought of something a little ironic in Phobos. As I recall, when asked, Faris said the aspect she found most disturbing was "not being able too get away".
Yet she winds up being the one who traps Karine in the medbay with the neomorph.
Why did Faris think she herself was any less likely to be infected than Karine? Sure Ledward may have puked on Karine's shoulder...but his back had sprayed blood directly in Faris' face... she was at least equally in need of quarantine.
Easier to inflict your own worst fear on someone else, I suppose.

why the hell wasn't this in the film! This is what was missing from Covenant to make it GREAT. David is a terrifying antagonist with one hell of a sinister agenda.
David was a bit too high and mighty in Prometheus/Covenant. In this, he is just downright scary and insane.
Prior to this I felt that if you ran into David in a dark alley he would probably offer you a cup of tea before stabbing you with his flute. All quiet cleanly. Now im not so sure

Fantastic stuff...i couldn't hold out.
DEFINITELY would've helped A:C to have included portions of "Advent" at the end of the film. Don't know what fool edited it out (probably the same one that edited out the engineer conversation with David when they first meet in Prometheus).

Lol, I had always placed David very firmly in the "Let's not meet" category. Do you ever find that some book or movie scenes prey on your imagination and keep you awake at night with this: O_O; sort of facial expression? (Game of Thrones does that to me a lot, lol).
Well, in the early days of my Covenant obsession, imagining Dr. Shaw's final days with David on Planet 4 cost me a lot of sleep!
Imagine the existential dread of being utterly alone, light years from another human being, combined with being at the mercy of a Dr. Mengele-esque sociopath, completely unsympathetic to human needs or ethics.
David would really be the worst of both worlds.
...He's increasingly mesmerizing on screen! But if I met someone who remotely reminded me of him IRL, I'd run screaming lol.
Advent was great! Why didn't they include it in the film? ...I guess they probably wanted to wait until we had all just barely recovered from our initial trauma over the David-Shaw situation, so they could maximize the amount of sleep we all lose...? lol.
