^Who can say what Star Trek will be in the future?

Would anyone 30 years ago have figured that a number of Trek novels would feature large scale space warfare? Not me.

What might the future bring?

Don't ever claim "but it isn't Star Trek".

Todays Star Trek "isn't Star Trek" when looked at from the Original Series or even the early ST:TNG perspective.
No-one's claiming that Star Trek hasn't changed, or that it isn't varied.

Look at Arena, Sub Rosa, In the Pale Moonlight, Tsunkatse and Carpenter Street - each one of those episodes is tonally and thematically different to the next.

What we're saying is that the fundamental concepts on which all incarnations of Star Trek are based - a better future, acceptance of life in all its forms, etc. - are in direct opposition to some of your own views.
