Sure, I realise people watch for other reasons than technology, they watch it to be entertained. I am not debating this.
I also realise that everyone here who watches and enjoys Star Trek now will love Trek as it is now and believe that it is not necessary to change it because its fine. Fair enough.
But will the next generation who are born and grow up today watch Star Trek in its current form when they become adults or will they just laugh at it and thus begin a decline of Trek into insignificance as its core audience dies off!?!
