Starnge though, the David android is described as a "8th generation Weyland type android."
Ash was a Hyperdyne Systems 120-A/2, so it seems they are from different manufacturers?
At least we know the origin of the distre... I mean warning signal Nostromo received from LV-426 and the Company's Special Order 937. (wink, wink)
Weyland and Yutani merged to make up Weyland-Yutani in 2030, so the series numbers might be different on new models. Also, it's all pretend.
Anyone else notice the Alien's series androids name series (in film order), i.e.
Ash, Bishop, Call, David, ?
I've got money on a Eugene next..
