Prometheus did that typical latter-day sci-fi prequel thing of inexplicably having more advanced tech despite being set in the past. Yes, this was a state-of-the-art spacecraft instead of an old, grubby mining vessel, but look at how much technology has advanced since 1993 to 2016 and consider exponential development and that doesn't hold water.

We can't say to what extent at this point, but Covenant is dealing with that to some degree. With the cloth suit and straps, the design is much more in keeping with what we saw in 1979, suggesting the film's world will be more recognisably Alien.
