For me it's more like being in 1979 and watching Star Trek getting radically re-imagined again. I'm less shocked with what I'm seeing for Discovery than I was in 79 and seeing the Trek world that I loved completely done away with and completely re-imagined. Unless this series set further in the future features Starfleet crew possessed of nanotechnology that allows them to self transport, emit phasers from their hands, communicate with the ship with no need of a physical communicator, have the ability to be a living tricorder and view all sensor information in their eyes ala' Geordi, then you can keep your "future Trek" because it will be the same tired old shit we had regurgitated ad nauseum in the 90's. When TNG premiered in 1987, my first thought was how utterly fucking cheap it all looked. The communicator is in their Starfleet symbol? That didn't scream "futuristic" it screamed "We don't have to build a prop". My second thought was how completely unadvanced they were in any meaningful way from the original series outside of some completely superficial changes like the uniforms, phasers and communicators. It's been years since I've read the original Star Trek Chronology, but at the end of it, it posits some potential technology in the coming century. IIRC, some of that may have been ships that change shape or something like that. (Anyone with a copy of that book, feel free to chime in). Bottom line, THAT was what the future of the future should be like. It should be extrapolating a future based on the tech available in that world. Look how much the real world has changed in a century of uninterrupted technological progress. Now imagine that in a time when you have access to transporters, replicators, no resource or energy limitations. No, were not going to have a future where the only differences are uniforms, phasers, communicators and the ships have letters from the middle of the alphabet after the registry numbers. But that's what too many "post VOY" fanboys want, and THAT, more than anything else is the embodiment of "worriedly go where we've all gone before" "but it's not Star Trek. It's just glorified fan fiction." So basically like everything from 1987 onward.
