For me, nothing beets a wrench lying around the engine room of the most advanced ship in Starfleet.
I don't have a problem with that. New technologies usually coexist alongside old technologies rather than replacing them altogether. We live in the age of nuclear power and computers, but we still use fire and string and buttons and knives, technologies harnessed hundreds of thousands of years ago. No reason to think the same won't be true a paltry quarter-millennium from now.

After all, the laws of physics that make a wrench useful today -- leverage, torque, and the like -- will still be just as valid two hundred or two million years from now.
I understand your point; but, it seems more like using hemp rope on the international space station.

The part I love best in this episode is when they list all of Kirk's awards. It makes me bristle with pride for him. It adds a little depth to the TOS universe as well.
