    Yes, it can, but in my opinion, the backdrop of the 32nd century really has nothing in it for today's audiences to physically relate to.
    I think this is going to end up being a generic schoolhouse romp with some Trek thrown in to fool us into thinking it's something new.
    I guess I don't really know how to explain it, except to me, there's nothing about the 32nd Century that we've seen so far that feels like the Trek I've grown up with.
    It almost feels to me like it going to be more like a magic academy than Trek.

    It's Star Trek, it will never veer too far away from what "today's audiences to physically relate to."

    Didn't people complain NuTrek was too relatable?

    As if all I do all day is quote Shakespeare and Robin Hood

    The 32nd century is literally the same as the 22nd, 23rd and 24th centuries except for the fact ships now have floating nacelles.

    Remember when they went to the Trill planet and they literally hadn't changed their fashion since the DS9 days?:lol:

    Hell, even the Ferengi delegate we see in the 4th season who took part in the vote about what to do about the DMA and later travelled aboard Disco on its journey to meet 10-C was wearing an outfit that looked like it came from Quark's closet.

    Yeah you'd think culture would've changed since then

    In Star Trek? The only thing that changes are Starfleet uniforms. :lol:

    Hell, in Trek even starships still have the same basic overall layout 1,000 years later. It's as if the NX-class was built in the 2150s and most future Starfleet designers just said, "We got it right the first time. Spin off of that look but keep it recognizable."

    Tbf the only ship directly taking inspiration from the NX-01 is the Akira Class

    One can point to several elements on the NX-01 that were carried over to later designs. (In-universe)
    Out-uniiverse, it's clear that that the designers were looking at the TOS Enterprise for details.

    In Star Trek?

    No, no I wouldn't.

    Yes, people are too relatable in newer Trek. Except when they are not. Then they're ok. The rules are very clear.

    Remember when they went to Earth and the Starfleet Academy building was still there, with the same tree and everything? :lol:

    Hell, the Golden Gate Bridge has been there since the 1930s. :lol:

    Star Trek has never been about predicting the cultural future of humanity beyond a few surface level references to being more "evolved".

    Even after the Breen blew it up! And it goes back and forth between having trains in tubes and solar panels on it!

    The solar panels are the roof of the tram tubes. There. Trek continuity intact!

    It didn't actively predict the internet. And assumed pop culture wouldn't exist in the future
