Our conceptualization of the future and technology makes the prequels lack continuity, I think.
Not sure about this, I mean it worked for Star Trek. I think the biggest problem with Prometheus by far was the script, not how it conceptualized technology/the future compared to the original. Star Wars prequels just had problems all over the map (script, directing, relying too much on CGI).
