I would have preferred Shaw not dead at all.

It's essential. Not only does it give you extra info on Weyland's whole outlook on life ( and justify the old man make-up of Weyland in Prometheus) but it gives a lot of back story on David that completely changes your perception of him in Prometheus. The scene alone makes a huge difference to Prometheus and is the perfect start to its sequel.

Waste of time. All of the disdain and disinterest David displays in his role and his master is perfectly established in Prometheus.

They should have just put the crossing there instead.

I agree it was unnecessary, but it was well done. I'd have put it elsewhere in the film, possibly right when Walter asks what weyland was like.

I'd not use it for the opening of the movie.

"Masterful."

The rest? No... first impressions;
"The prologue's so excellent." I thought; "masterpiece" -a premature evaluation...
Prometheus, fool me once, shame on you.
Fool me twice, shame on me.

Perfect prologue though, IMO.

Prologue and epilogue are my favourite parts of the movie. In the first one David is a slave while in the last one he becomes a master. Those two scenes bond movie together and show us who's the main character of Covenant.

Let's be honest: Covenant is David's story. So for me it's very logical to start with David and Weyland scene. It explains some of David's motivations later in the movie. And just visually scene is great in my opinion.
