I don't like the idea of jumping forward another century. The technobabble would be unbearable!
How do you know that? Rick Berman would be in charge, and by all accounts, he was the originator of the "technobabble", which, honestly, wasn't THAT bad. Hell, I never understood most of it anyhow.
It was frickin awful.

Technobabble or fankwank phaser banks were some sort of substitute to characters using their wit and intelligence to overcome adversity, but I guess the latter requires good writing and good taste.

Not only technobabble is a real turn off, the production values of Berman trek left much to be desired, no panache, nothing of distinction and things were not much better even on the big screen with Nemesis where production budgets were not as restraint. Compared to other TV shows and movies of the time, Trek was trounced.
