The first thing I recalled about Prometheus was that David's actual designation, David 8, made me recall Edward VIII, collaborator with Nazis.

Too bad they didn't take along an android named Albert 6, instead?

But seriously, thoughts?

@tdby2: Having difficulty interpreting your comment, sorry.

If they will name an android Albert 6, your thoughts will be definitely right. In that case David 8's character connects with king Edward 8.

I have a question: in Prometheus David's full name is David 8? I don't remember any hints for this. I know, in the promotion video they mentioned, it's David 8, I mean the series number. But some people think, David in Prometheus is a special edition for Weyland. Is he David 8 then?

My opinion about this: David is definitely van be an Aryan character, so the connections between him and the nazis is pretty easy if you want to interprete his character in a political point of view. (Actually it's very symbolic in some way, when he cut his hair in AC, hé cuts firstly the blond hairpart). But honestly I'm a bit tired of these kind of political hints. Don't get me wrong, i see the connections and your idea is relevant. But if we want to talk about genocides, there were much more genocides. I don't want to count them now, but I'm sure, you know what I'm talking about. That's why I'm a bit tired of these kind of political correlations ín films.

I suspect TDBY2 might have some issues with Homo's and gay robots.
