good morning.   long time lurker, love this community and the mythos ridley and co have got people going totally insane over.  really looking forward to this film, and for all it's shortcomings I feel Alien: Prometheus will be bolstered by new information presented in Alien: Covenant

This post however focusses on David and draws theories from posts i remember reading all the way back in 2012.

The recent media released promoting this film has cleverly got everyone assuming David is back in one piece.  The trailer clearly confuses with flashbacks/walter/shadowy figures etc but what if this is all designed to lull us into a false sense of security.

What if David is revealed to still be just a head?

I cant remember or cite the original post but there was a lindelofesq time travel wormhole theory presented ages ago linking directly to the large head in the ampule chamber potentially being a statue of David.    

Also, the way the engineer smiles before ripping off said head reeks of familiarity to me. 

Ultimately this raises more questions than solid theory but if the overall story results in humans creating an immortal new life form that ends up transcending space and time, playing some role in humanities creation that could prove very interesting: we created our creator in an infernal loop.

how the engineers/Chemical A0-3959X.91 – 15/alien lifeforms play into this i can't say to any accurate extent.  we could assume David is the creator of the xeno.  but his motivations and abilities in the time since they crashed on paradise are probably going to be far removed from any pre conceived notions we may have. if daniels is related to ripley there may well be some dark personal agenda.

another important point is that we have to assume Walter and Ash are completely pre loaded with all information gathered from the previous missions.

"There's a perfectly good reason for all this" says Ash upon Ripley discovering special order 937.  Possibly one of the most revealing lines in the whole film.

So my first post, a rambling collection of facts and guesses, but i hope it brings up more unhealthily obsessive ideas into what Mr Scott has in store for us.  The sexualised elements of the xenomorph (the noises of Lamberts death still haunt me to this day) were never revisited satisfactorily for me in any subsequent movie.

I want to be disturbed.

I am concerned that the Dreadnaught on LV-426 is going to be explained as being the Juggernaught, and that the eggs on it are from morphing the embryos on board the Covenant?  Then we are back to question #1, 'Who is the big guy in the chair?'.  I still want to be more amazed at how ancient LV-426 really is, than it being so recent?

@Ali81, definetly lambert was getting a right royal rogering by the alien, listen to the audio over the coms as ripley is bolting along the corridor the hydraulic pumping sound like a bicycle pump going flat out then lamberts scream.
