For me its all about the intent of the author(s). Star Trek loses something when its not our future.
How must Space: 1999 fans feel, then?

This didn't used to be true, but vintage sci-fi is now full of TV shows and movies whose far-flung future settings have been passed by the real calendar. We just have to accept them as contained stories in their own unique time.

It might even be fun to compile a list one of these days. Offhand I can think of:

The Omega Man, set in 1977.
Lost in Space, set in 1997.
2001: A Space Odyssey.
