    If you've completed the whole entire questline for Covenant in Fallout 4 and have read "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" you may find some strong similarities to certain aspects of it.
    Coincidentally, when I encountered this quest a while ago, I had recently finished reading DADOES.

    Heh, I bet the comparison between writing quality is a very large gap?

    Go to the top of the Mass Fusion Containment Shed building, there's the ending scene of Blade Runner recreated :D
    Honestly, I'd have expected a lot more Blade Runner references. They didn't even add the .223 pistol! WTF Bethesda.

    Whats the Covenant ? Other name for those railroad guys maybe?
    (I'm not that far yet, story wise)

    Covenant is a small settlement, not actually related to the main story (although I don't know if you do much with them if you side with the Railroad).

    Ohhhhh shit! THAT's what it was. I just wondered why they put a synth up there. Totally didn't get the reference until now.

    What about the guy in the bathtub with 3 machete-wielding mannequins around him, is that also from some movie?

    Sounds like the movie Wrong Turn, albeit, I doubt it's a reference to that.
