It is not dated. It is a different universe where technological progress occurs at a different rate than ours.
I never bought this concept. For the most part, the folks in charge tend to treat it like its the future of our world. That why when the characters visit the present, it's pretty much the reality outside our windows. The contradictions and predictions that don't fit are ignored.
I like to think of it as both. I like to hang onto Trek "history" but I also like to see it grow to match the social and technical trends of the time.
