Vampires are boring...*yaaawn*
As opposed to spaceships, robots, and aliens?

What, some people prefer different flavours of stuff. I'll never entirely get the American love of superheroes, personally, and I generally prefer vampires to zombies. So it goes.

The Future is a Utopia where every wish can be granted with a push of a button; the Past is a constant struggle for survival.
I don't know if I'd just assign the utopia as the Trek end of things. Captain Kirk seemed to spend every other episode rejecting paradises and extolling the virtues of human struggle. Captain Kirk versus Captain Picard?
