Re: Star Trek will be out of date soon!
Star Trek simply changes with the times. It is about the characters, not the technology they use (even though its pretty cool).
What they need to do is bring in sci-fi writers and people who study trends in technology when laying the groundwork for the next series. Some staples will obviously exist, warp drive and transporters and phasers, but everything else should be on the table to be redeveloped.
