It's easy to see that the droid names appearing in the Alien movies are in alphabetical order but Walter seems to be a little bit early.

Two other sequels are going to introduce Xavier and Zoe???

Or we are in the fields of reverse engineering concerning the names as well?

It's believed between David and Walter that they could be nods to producers David Giler and Walter Hill.

Ridley did say they are coming in from the rear..... so maybe that applies to names too lol

I agree with ninXeno426 its a nod to Walter Hill.

But as far as the movie goes... i bet Walter is simply a David 9

And i raised the point a few times before, if in 50 years we can create Synthetics like David and we have say 4 Male Models.

one looks like Fassbender  and is the David Model

one looks like Brad Pitt and is the Benjamin Model

one looks like Vin Diesel and is the Ricardo  Model

and finally we have a Johnny Depp look-a-like Model called Jack

If they sold say 40 David models to various people/companies would they all call them David?   or would you give them your own personnel name?

I think this is the case with the movie, Walter is a David 9 model and its just they cant go around referring to David 8 and David 9

BigDave - So the next one is Samuel or Victor?

Isn't it time to see a female android?

Seems like they are making these androids off of good looking, fit people (Lance had seen his better days so Bishop didn't look all that great, but he was fit..).

Wonder if they would consider making an android model (say "Harvey" or "Jerome") that would look like your HVAC repair dude that is overweight, unkempt, and slightly stinky. Toss in the always visible butt crack and we may be on to something.  

Just an idea of getting an android as somebody we could relate to a little easier.

I think Ridley didn't like the idea of going ABCD with the Android names, like most of the time with Ridley he changed his mind.

Su:

It would seem cruel to design an android with a paunch and a slouch!

Who knows... Perhaps Ash was a little bit stinky. :)

Aren't Prometheus and Covenant prequels?
Which'd mean that starting from Ash and Bishop, those were the next generation androids? Meaning, a whole new order of androids while David and Walter being a part of the one before.

Isn’t it kind of neurotic to feel like you must go from A to B and so on? To me these are just names, then if they are named Al, Mark, Mathew, and whatever that doesn’t matter. By the way why have we seen so few female androids? As far as I know the only female android this far is Call (Winona Ryder). Not that the number of female androids in a movie is the most important thing in the world but I am just wondering.

I subscribe to the theory that Meredith Vickers was an android too, even if she did have sex with Idris Janek. Surely Weyland produced pleasure models like Tyrell Corporation made Pris in the Blade Runner Universe, so I think it would be hard to tell if she was human or not.

In addition, I saw a recent Alien Theory Video (https://youtu.be/EXbWmsd4CWo) in which it is explained that there was a MU/TH/UR 6000 A.I. on the Alien Covenant website which answered questions, and when someone asked "When did Meredith Vickers die?" it gave the answer "June 29th 2049" when you would expect the answer to be December of 2093 (when Prometheus takes place) or more precisely New Years Day of 2094.

Perhaps Vickers was an experiment which Weyland wanted to keep around to remind him of his deceased Daughter? a parallel to David, in which even she was not aware she was an artificial person? Certainly an interesting theory.

I highly doubt that Meredith was a synthetic since the tie websites and the movie prometheus made a big deal of David being the first advanced synthetic

It had been Teased thats for sure, even a Tease that Prometheus will have TWO Synthetics... but they may have been Alluding to the LV-223 Engineers.

However we have to maybe look at the GOAL of Peter Weyland, he wants to be Immortal or have Prolonged Life.  And so IF he had Successfully been able to Create a Synthetic in the Image of his Daughter and been ABLE to Upload her Consciousness/Soul into the Synthetic Body.  Then we would have to ask WHY would he NOT go and do the same with himself?

If Vickers was a TEST and he had to WAIT for Results... then surely he would COMMAND someone like David to Oversee this and WHEN its Confirmed this Experiment Works and shows NO SIGNS of Failure, then David could keep Weyland on ICE until the Results are in and then Weyland has the same Process done to himself.

THIS ^^^^ is what i was touching on with my Prometheus 2 idea, however Weyland could NOT Perfect the Soul Transfer.... this STORY did have a Robot Vickers though... but the Original Vickers was on the Prometheus and Died on LV-223.

Also IF she was a Robot, she would be ONE where it seems SHE is NOT aware of such, which would be ODD... unless she was a Replicant/Clone instead.

It seems that our Meredith was NOT a Synthetic.
