The Advent short shows information about special orders 754, 899, and 931.

Special order 899 is about psychological testing. Does it have a connection with the Phobos short showing the fear assessment test of the Covenant crew? If so, can it mean that Weyland-Yutani knew about David’s experiments before the crew selection process?

Surgical Investigation. Special Order 754. Experimental Trials.

Xenomorphic Entity. Special Order 931. Advanced Weapons Research.

Rituals and Customs. Special Order 899. Psychological Testing.

Xenomorphic Entity. Special Order 931. Advanced Weapons Research.

Very interesting. I don't have any details on it, but just noticed the screenshot for 21WT, order 931. Does it say "UADVANCED WEAPONS RESEARCH?"  Possibly a typo?

drucea - "UADVANCED WEAPONS RESEARCH?"  Possibly a typo?

Yes, I noticed the 'U' as well, you're right, it must be a typo, however, the same order text can be seen in the screenshot showing the code B88Q - without 'U'. (I copied the text of 21WT without the letter 'U'.)

Thank you for your comment, I thought this topic would generate more comments. :D

Ingeniero - Glad you like it. I hope the screenshots provided can serve as a brilliant source of some awesome theories created by you. However, you won't be the first... :)

You're most welcome Ati. Great documentation.

Special Orders Progress Updates

I've tried to enhance the solar location of the above image and the characters are pixelated. I scanned over the image to try and match something to the Special Orders numbers or some other unique identifier...nothing yet.

Is there a version of the above image that's larger and we are able to more clearly see the characters to match Special Orders or the latitude/longitude on the below image?

If we are able to match something then we may deduct David was sending back a technical scientific item (organism above) while on Planet 4 in July of 2099 and the above image is of Planet 4. And the above image is a Special Order progress update.

The Advent Video does seem to show us that David has indeed been sending over Information of his findings,  it all depends if those behind the Viral have done their homework and looked at the clues and to not contradict anything.

The only logical explanation is David is able to record all memories he has into System Files he can Upload to a computer and edit and then Transmit.

So its like if David saw a Engineer Statue with a Inscription on it, then he has a Photo-Graphic Memory and all Memories and Images he has seen can be uploaded.

This means all those drawings he had done, would not need to be taken from Planet 4, but the Fact David has seen them while working on them we have to assume his AI Brain can take Photos of his visual memory that can be uploaded.
