Apone was the one walking up and down the line of Marines saying "What are we? What are we?" getting them psyched them, then growled and called them "absolutely bad asses". Does that honestly sound like the sort of person who's going to stop another Marine mid chest-thump to say "Stow it, we're not actually that good?"
No. Trying to use Apone not saying anything as proof that Hudson isn't full of shit is one hell of a clutch at straws.
Not that Hudson was necessarily full of shit about the weaponry, but as I said, weapons being state of the art =/= everything else, and military state of the art =/= trillion dollar flagship Corporate dickwaving state of the art.
Why would the conference room have anything like the Prometheus? What possible good would it have done anyone to have the crew of the Nostromo's heads floating over the table? Why would Ripley's quarters, which are clearly cheap studio accommodation? The park bench maybe could've used a hologram, but again, just because technology exists doesn't mean it has to be used everywhere. They had actual plants and augmented it with a backdrop. Simple, quick, easy solution.
Why would the Auriga's mess hall need Prometheus technologies? And what Prometheus technologies, at that? What part of what we see "should" have had what, exactly?
