Is this the David 8 android that crashed with Dr. Shaw?

When looking at the cryptic codes released with the 3 photos below, you can decipher a sequence of events based on the date/time stamp.  

The first image is a strike team at night on 220512052104, or 10:05 PM on December 05, 2104.

The second image is a group waking up the next day on 130112062104, or 1:01 PM on December 06, 2104.

The third image is a bloody exam room that looks exactly like the room that the backbuster alien made its debut in the Alien: Covenant trailer.  This last image cypher is 224612072104, or 10:46 PM on December 7, 2104.

Did Captain Branson get woken up out of hyper sleep to investigate the "distress" signal from Paradise and he is part of the strike team in the first photo? 

Is the second image a new group woken up the next day because Branson's group didn't make it back to the ship the night before?

The third image appears to show the results of the backbuster who infected a member of the team setting down in the daylight.

Is the android walking off the shuttle into daylight on Paradise David 8?  

David is seen with a weapon at night (before his haircut and color) walking across a grassy knoll similar to the cryptic first image above.  Is this weapon for Walter while the aliens chew up the strike team?  

Did David capture or kill the strike team (including Walter) in the first photo and make his way back on to the Covenant ship to bring down a new group of victims and is shown in disguise when walking the crew off the shuttle in daylight on Paradise?

Intriguing idea. I think it is Walter though.


MemberPraetorianFeb-28-2017 1:13 PM

I too believe it's Walter,but i like your theory.I posted two threads on this,one on my suspicions regarding Crudup,the my theory on what the strike team might be.

Thank you dk and ninXeno426. I will read your two threads ninXeno426...I apologize for any overlap of theory.

Walter seems to be wearing a hat or hood in the released images and it could be David trying to hide his neck scar (if one exists) and hair he either cut or burned off or colored. He may not have a neck scar.

Weyland patented David's skin in 2026 (Advanced Polyurethane Compound) and the David 8 model (2070's), unlike previous versions, is able to repair himself. And know how to take apart other David models.

Which android is standing by Crudup when he observes how an alien egg works? I don't know on that scene. Theory hole.

"Unlike previous models, David 8 can conduct all of his own maintenance procedures." 

"David 8 has valuable skills in manufacturing, finance, earth sciences and medicine, and he can become instantly competent in almost an other field."

No worries,i think we perhaps could support each others theories

Didn't know that about the skin,cool.Who's standing of to the side has been heavily debated.the belief is Walter,but it could be David.

Interesting Debate... i was going for a while post this series of events as far as a Time Stamp... and as NineXeno426 posted a post that had the one image trying to debate it and the crew i posted what i was going to in January on his Topic..

But it seems its posted here too  thanks to Ingeniero

But i dont think we are crossing over into to many Topics as this one while posting the same Time Line Images that i had on the other thread.. Ingeniero your debate is a bit different and pondering if its David and not Walter as in maybe Walter was part of a different Drop Ship mission but then he went missing and replaced with David

That is interesting theory and indeed who knows, it could work... i think at least the whole previous landing Party could work as far as giving a reason for when Daniels finds those Dog Tags.

The only thing is... potential for a few Holes....

As it seems Daniels and Co are not aware, of any previous mission and where is the evidence for it?

The only way this can work at all if such a theory is to hold any weight at all...

Indeed as OT is trying to debate.... is if a Secret Set of guys depart first... Walter has knowledge of this...  and he either is the Inside kind of ASH Special Order 937 kind of guy...

Or someone else is who sends Walter down with another detachment and these guys get Lost....

But we have the missing evidence as far as what happened to any Ship they used.... The most Logical Answer would be that, either Walter is in on the Act..  and after this event he flies the Drop Ship back and alters Logs to pretend nothing happened.

Or Walter Came across and was replaced by David who performs the above.

This is the way such  a theory could hold some weight, but it would be a missed opputnity to see David and Walter play a game of Cat and Mouse..

Unless they come across Walter latter and he tries to tell them David has stolen his identity in which case, David would claim he has not and Walter is David etc etc.

As far as who is in the Cave.. when Crudup gets Face Hugged i would say its Walter, and i would also say its Walter in the Cloak too as the clothing under it seems to match what some images show Walter wearing..

Unless there was a Switch-a-roo..

I would bet these Time Stamp Images dont appear in the Trailer.. they are just a clue to the events...  yes we will get the Back Buster and this shot is the aftermath... but there is no bodies in this Shot, and i doubt they cleared out the bodies just before the Ship Blows up.

So its a Production Image... thats all... a clue however to a actual event.

So i feel we WILL NOT see this Landing Shot at Night at all... not at the start of the movie... but when we get a Big Twist we will find out about some underhanded tactics and then find out that indeed a previous group was sent down.

I feel Daniels makes this discovery when she finds the Dog Tags, if they belong to someone who is not part of the group who she was with...

Thank you BigDave and ninXeno426 for your analysis and for deciphering the numerical code.

The only reason why I don't think that is Walter in the cloak walking through tall grass is the long blond hair hanging out of the front left of the hood of the cloak. I didn't catch this hair hanging out (someone else in HD analysis).


MemberPraetorianFeb-28-2017 4:35 PM

I haven't noticed that yet.I believe someone confirmed that David has dark hair now,perhaps they're wrong.

MemberDeaconFeb-28-2017 5:20 PM

Indeed the HD Clip it did look like long blonde hair.. hard to work out..

New Trailer clears a few things up ;)

Also i was meant to post a few days ago.. wish i did.. that the shot in Trailer before when they came down the ramp there was one person i thougt was Crudup in the background...  but then latter he has different coat...

The new shot of them coming down the ramp shows Crudup in same clothes he did in other shots... so this made me wonder who the hell is this guy

It was going to be my next MYSTERY Analysis....

New Trailer however confirms its a She... and also rules out Bichir as the Mystery Man in my Post..

It looks like from the second trailer that the weapon David is holding while wearing an Engineer cloak is a flare gun.


MemberFacehuggerMar-01-2017 9:32 AM

It is walter because this is when they first land on the planet

Look upon my works, you mighty, and despair

The strike team on December 05, 2104 is holding rifles different from the Weyland Storm rifle (possibly) on the floor below.

Image above source: auximenes

What group was carrying the (possibly, not confirmed) Weyland Storm rifle when attacked in David's workshop?

Does this image above show a person from another group entirely (carrying Weyland Storm rifles) that contributed to David 8's egg production shown below in preparation for the Covenant crew (or others)?


MemberPraetorianMar-06-2017 8:29 AM

Did a Yutani Corporation supported crew provide the bodies needed to produce the eggs arranged (one above) to provide face huggers for the Covenant crew?
