I re-watched Covenant and noticed something. David calls the Creature "Perfect organism" Okay, and the only other character in the film series to call it that was Ash from Alien i believe. So? is there supposed to be some unexplained over arching plot reasoning behind this?

I get the feeling part of the story arc plan of the prequels back into Alien was to tie David to Ash.

Makes perfect sense & I love it but unfortunately the prequel haters have probably scuppered that chance of finding out anytime soon

It is interesting when considering the disparate personalities of Ash and David, especially since David created it and Ash admires it.

IMO my gut feeling was David would come to be responsible for the rerouting of the Nostromo & the switch of the science officer with an ‘infected’ Ash or by David uploading his personality into Ash (Similar manner & accent) as much as I believe that’s what happened to Walter-Rather than humans working in Weyland Yutani pulling the strings. This is to me a scarier concept than simply some greedy corporate company

I dunno. It's as if the Ridley Scott prequels told us "We're going to be the Aliens that we have been looking for, since we have always been humans, even before Earth itself. The future is the biomechanical!"

Meanwhile, in another Scott production called Raised by Wolves they tell us something like "What if the aliens we are looking for are AI?".  :laugh:

I want a conclusion, but I don't want David to be responsible for everything.

I just assumed it was a nod to the other film. Ridley sometimes has moments in his movies that are nods to other films he's made or films he likes.
