Suggested correction: The flashing light actually belongs to the rotating beacon light on top of the shuttle. This light is shortly after when the crew start to return before it explodes.

More trivia for Alien: Covenant

Question: During the movie we learned that David felt some passion for Elizabeth for being kind to him before. So why use her body for his experiments after her death? Surely not to learn about human anatomy, which should be known to him already.

Answer: Regardless of his android passions, David was already experimenting with the bio-goo, and he deliberately used it to impregnate Dr. Elizabeth Shaw with a proto-face-hugger in "Prometheus." In "Covenant," we learn that David later killed Shaw and is experimenting with her body because her body tissues contain human-alien antibodies that are essential to David's work (which is creating a new generation of xenomorphs).
