    Defeats the point.

    It also defeats the purpose of trying to do a less expensive off-lot episode by placing it in a contemporary setting.

    As does sending them to some made-up world like Andoria.

    Maybe I'm reading something into what you wrote that isn't there. You aren't saying that those shows visited Earth during the same calender years of production are you? Because if so, when did TNG or DS9 visit 1990's Earth (and late 80s for TNG)?

    Great pun but I do think it works

    It would be so funny if they walked past each other on the street. Picard frowns at Pike, recognising him from somewhere, Pike wonders who that rude old man is...

    Visiting the 1970's would be great. Imagine the Oil Crisis being caused by an alien race which had always used Earth's oil as lactic fluid, and Pike's crew has to stop them and cover up the whole affair. It could be called "Roil Jelly".

    The costumes and mustaches would be awesome!

    I'd prefer not to see time travel, but if they are going to do it, at least it will be on an episodic basis and not a season-long arc like Picard.

    Might be interesting to see how such an episode and its doings affects Captain Pike, given his own temporal foreknowledge.

    DS9 visited Earth in the 2020s, not the 1990s. And TNG visited Earth in the 19th century.

    They really should do this - would be relatively easy and the actors probably don't even need to e in the same physical location if they work at it.

    As long as they don't use the ship to get there it's fine. Even better if they don't get to choose their destination.

    SNW already did. In the first episode no less.
    Ok, technically it wasn’t Earth and people had funny faces.
    But in all things that mattered it was a 21st century Earth society.
    Just based on the technicality Pike was allowed a solution we usually don’t get in time travel episodes.
