Why is Nostromo's technology so... 1980s?

"Prometheus" is meant to be a prequel to "Alien", happening 30 years before (src).If that's the case, how come one of the very earliest spaceships, Prometheus from 2089, has a spiffy new technology, while Nostromo has antique text based CRTs, mechanical IBM style keyboards, and all the associated technologies screaming "1980s called, and they want their IBM PC back!" ?The great visuals of this can

How do the Elves in LOTR (canon) obtain their food?
by JustinDSN in Science Fiction
It's been asked before what Elves eat, but my question is specifically: where on (Middle) Earth do they get it? I find this to be a significant mystery & potential "hole" in the mythology. I'll list first my thoughts on why there's an issue, then the potential answers I see. Please tell me, if you can, whether any of these can be confirmed or invalidated by any statements found in canon.Elves

What Was the Rationale of the Ancients for Eliminating Manual Dialing of Pegasus Stargates?
by Matthieu Bozec in Science Fiction
Related to questions:Remote Dialing OptionStargate Network Version DifferencesI noticed while reading several articles on stargates that the Ancients had made "upgrades" in their 3rd version of the stargate network (Pegasus) regarding security. The one that strikes me as most odd is the fact that they eliminated the ability for Pegasus gates to be manually dialed (i.e., without the use of a DHD).

70s Young Adult science fiction short story collection available in schools
by Schmidt in Science Fiction
I must have read this book around 1991 and even then it looked pretty old, so I believe that it was from the 70's. It was slightly over-sized with a mostly black cover featuring some nice 70's era sci-fi illustration. I believe the cover depicted scenes from the various stories inside the book, but the main image was of men in spacesuits firing laser guns at these crystal crab shaped aliens.I thin
