But we still never really saw the common everyday Earth in those films.
Good.
The sanitized view of Earth we've seen in Trek TV and most movies makes it hard to imagine that it is potentially OUR future. It doesn't look like any place with which I'm familiar.

Many of the buildings and streets that were around 200 years ago are still used today. Heck, I used to live in a 150 year old house; no big deal. I want to see a 23rd century world that is in many ways familiar to the world in which I live, because I bet the 23rd century WILL (in many ways) look very much like the world in which we live today.

I suppose Star Trek does not NEED to be taking place in our potential future, but I feel that is what most people would like to think.
