Do people still think this story will reference anything pre-2005 (in anything beyond the most general and cursory terms)?
I honestly think it will. And, it had better. Major FAIL if it doesn't. Not much of a 50th Anniversary if it forgets the majority of those years! However, I don't think the viewer will need to know the history in order to follow the plot.
