The technology of Prometheus vs Alien


This article describes precisely how Ash: A Fan Fiction Comic reconciles the technology discrepancy between Alien and its prequels, for those who aren’t satisfied with the Prometheus being Weyland’s flagship and the Nostromo being a mere freighter.  

But let’s be honest, outside the realm of 40 year old sci-fi, freighter technology won’t look like that in 100 years, plus those 2 ships are 30+ years apart. 

Personally, the retro future is one of the things we love about Alien. But this comic is for ALL the fans, and I saw this as a realistic way to lay the quandary to rest for those who require more realism.
