In the movie Prometheus, we see what appears to be an advanced race the 'Engineers' travel throughout space, they seem to be able to create life or at least cultivate it very well. Yet we see when David and Dr. Shaw reach the home world in Alien Covenant, the garb of the citizens, the buildings, all seem primitive or at least much more primitive than you would think for such an advanced space travel race.
There is of course some impressive docking structure, but beyond that and throughout the rest of the movie when they are in what David calls the 'Necropolis', everything feels very simple.
Yes there is some sort of internal lighting, which suggests some technology, but I guess I expected to see a much more advanced infrastructure. Were there any notes from the director/cast to suggest why they went this way with the home world?
