Finding the Covenant would be a nice bookend rather than leaving the prequels completely unfinished.
Im not expecting David to turn up though. I think it would be more interesting to just find this ghostship after 40 odd years with completely no explanation as to what became of it or how the Aliens came to be there.
Even if the Covenant ship is mentioned, i seriously doubt that it would be shown, since the aesthetic and technology of that ship doesn't match the retro-cassete style that Fede is embracing.
It would be easier to mention David and the Covenant, but at the same time, not show them at all.
Might as well have the crew of the Romulus space station find the Covenant (off-screen), bring something from it to their own station and then all hell breaks loose, which would lead to our new main characters to board the Romulus in the potentially teased salvage operation.
