Re: Does TOS Still Look Futuristic to You?

Somehow the same consoles that showed up on all the Allen shows only seemed to really look futuristic to me in THE TIME TUNNEL, but maybe that was because it was the only Allen show my 6 year-old mind could get behind
I'm guessing it appeared futuristic in TTT because we were told the series was set in the then-present day (whether it was first run for you or not).

The rest of Allen's series were set a decade or more in the future (Voyage in the late 70's, the LiS start date was 1997, and LOTG set in 1983) so, the consoles did not seem advanced enough for a deep space vehicle assumed to be the zenith of human tech (Jupiter 2), or an innovative sub-orbital passenger ship (Spindrift).
