Was Meredith Vickers (from Prometheus) a male-to-female transgender woman? I hope Alien: Covenant provides more details about her background.
According to this essay, it seems to be the case:
Some points that allude to her being transgender include:
-The medical pod in her lifeboat was designed for someone with male genitals, and there were two lifeboats on the ship. One for her and one for her father.
-Her distressed look when Weyland mentions that David is like the son he used to have.
-Weyland's disgust for her when he wakes up from his sleep (he wouldn't even look at her). This matches with someone who is transphobic.
