OvomorphMember0 XPMar-26-2012 6:49 AMAnyone else think Vickers is going to turn out to be another robot? From a snippet in the trailer she looks very stiff and corporate in much the same way as Ash. There has been so much shouting about David being the synthetic, I wouldn't be surprised if they slipped another one in on the sly.

OvomorphMember0 XPMar-26-2012 6:52 AM Here's an idea, Vickers is a replicant! Have nothing to back this up other than the fact that they want to connect the Blade Runner and Alien universe together. Here is another reach to help that theory..popular influential band in Britain, Dawn of the Replicants...lead singer last name Vickers.

OvomorphMember0 XPMar-26-2012 6:59 AMI don't think Vickers is an android or a replicant. I think she only will be a bit aggressive and cold and then turn out to be a coward in this film. That's only my thoughts, probably I'm wrong. And yes, I know about those cold manners and her way of speaking. Still don't think she's the android even if she looks right for it. It'd be too easy.

OvomorphMember0 XPMar-26-2012 7:22 AMSlightly off topic-but I beleive that a synthetic must be the link to the creatures we see here & the xeno. Here's why-the creatures in this may be purely organic (unproven) & could infect David?? thus leading to a mixture of synthetic/bio hence new creatures with acid for blood.

OvomorphMember0 XPMar-26-2012 7:56 AMPerhaps he's "the Sixth Replicant". We've been debating the whereabouts of that one for 20 years.

OvomorphMember0 XPMar-26-2012 8:06 AMBarf. Where are people getting this fuse Blade Runner and Alien stuff???? He's talking with writers, etc. now. I highly doubt he would be working on a new Blade Runner if this were the case. How confusing would that make the plot for newbies?
I may work for the company, but im really an OK guy.

FacehuggerMember425 XPMar-26-2012 8:18 AMVickers MAY be an Android. Stranger things have happened. She could be an experiment to test a synthetic's ability to lead, and test human acceptance of her model. All the synthetics mentioned have been "Davids." She could be a prototype. The Aliens from the original franchise exist in their known form when the Prometheus arrives on the planet. The widely discussed mural/sculpture proves this. It is a species that the engineers have already created or enslaved.

Safe? Of course he isn't safe, but he's good!

OvomorphMember0 XPMar-26-2012 9:28 AMI've thought this for a while now. In an interview when asked about androids in the film Ridley Scott said, 'there may be two'. We know David is one. I thought about Vickers as the obvious choice because she is the corporate representative. There is also a large focus on David being the Ash of Prometheus. But why would they make this so obvious? Maybe we've got David all wrong?! Maybe the second android, Vickers I'm assuming, is more responsible for what transpires? (which obviously won't be good news for most people in the film!).

earth experiment #?

OvomorphMember0 XPMar-26-2012 9:57 AMWe know we can expect to see more than one android as per Ridley's comment at comicon: when asked if we can expect to see a robot in the film he said "...there may be two," which I think we can take with a grain of salt...there may be many more. Also, there could be more than one David, as the Weyland website and viral video both imply he is a product of mass production.

OvomorphMember0 XPMar-26-2012 10:56 AMWeyland website indicates 1.9 million synthetics employed. I wouldn't be surprised if there were more robots than humans in that crew. Nothing would surprise me at this point. Perhaps it is Vickers that is the 'Pandora' of this tale.

OvomorphMember0 XPMar-26-2012 11:02 AM1.19 million David model androids employed. In all sectors except Law enforcement. And if you study the icons closely there seem to be some that are half-human, half android. Go to Weyland Industries website, check out 'Investor Information.'

OvomorphMember0 XPMar-26-2012 11:20 AMAn android does not practically wet her skivvies in fear strapping into an escape pod, as we've seen her do from the first teaser on. When, in any Alien movie let alone the first one, have you seen an Android almost lose it like that? Don't think she's an Android

RaymondKnight

OvomorphMember0 XPMar-26-2012 11:40 AMI was thinking maybe the other robot does not know it is a robot, possibly memory implants? I hate to keep linking things to Blade Runner but it is a cool concept. Maybe David get messed up and they have spare on board, although that would kinda destroy his character development

the coming

OvomorphMember0 XPMar-26-2012 11:55 AMit's possible, one thing I love about Alien is how irritable and human Ash acted, totally unlike a robot, which infact made it even more realistic and creepy imo

Jim100a100

OvomorphMember0 XPMar-26-2012 12:06 PMI liked that too in Ash (in fact they were [i]all[/i] irritable and talking over one another - it was great realistic stuff you don't see much any more) BUT, he kept relatively cool trying to stuff a rolled-up newspaper down Ripley's throat. He got a little wonky after getting knocked around a bit, but one thing you didn't see was extreme fear, as in the Vickers clip. You could see irritability and a little anxiousness, but balls-out fear? Didn't see it.

OvomorphMember0 XPMar-26-2012 2:09 PMDon`tt forget that synthetic humans are not stupid. If the ship goes down and she can escape what is the problem to do it. She is afraid but maybe this is the way she`s programmed. I`m pretty sure that she is robot, because in one of the trailers she has a fight with David. She looks strong than ordinary people in this scene. And she really is very sterile for a human. I don`t know it`s a speculation though. Excuse me for my english it`s not my mother language. :)

Ruth

OvomorphMember0 XPMar-26-2012 2:19 PMSo your argument for her being an android is her fight with David which lasts in the teaser for about a sec? We don't really know the cir***stances of that moment, so it's really hard to judge or make statements, though I like speculations. Somehow I don't believe she's an android, in other case it makes no sense. Everybody keeps "a possible second android" as a secret and then just throws us videos where you all see her as a android. I'm not saying she's 100% human, but we don't really know anything. Yes, she's a company woman, so her cold manners can link to her work. Strength? Are you saying there are no strong woman? And.. as much as I like Blade Runner those links with replicants, memory implants just seems a bit absurd to me. Just saying.

OvomorphMember0 XPMar-26-2012 2:36 PMVickers is a company "suit". That's why she's cold and stiff and stand-offish.

Dex

OvomorphMember0 XPMar-26-2012 3:13 PMMaybe i`m wrong. It`s just a feeling. I hope that Ridley will totally surprise us. I think that there is many strong women. My point is that she looks stronger than human being in that paticular scene. But it can be very similar with the scene from Alien where Ripley pushed Ash into the wall.

OvomorphMember0 XPMar-26-2012 8:24 PMThis thread is getting a lot Battlestar Galactica, js.

OvomorphMember0 XPMar-26-2012 8:53 PMI have wondered a few times if Vickers was an android, but I have the feeling that she is just more of a cold company woman. IMO

OvomorphMember0 XPJun-05-2012 5:05 PMThree of four Alien movies have had androids suddenly reveling themselves to be so (already in 'Aliens' I tried to figure out who the android was this time, and guessed wrong. Same thing later - never thought it'd be cute little Wynona Ryder). Anyway, in Prometheus David is the 'obvious' android, but the way Vickers reacts when Peter Weyland calls David his son, and the way she looks up at Peter Wayland and calls him 'father', suggests she is the other android. Yeah, I wonder why the movie never revealed this - could be happening in the multiple of sequels the ending and the many loose ends almost ensured will be made.
