my first memory of star trek was in september 1966 when i watched the first episode as a little kid, while sitting inside the box our new Setchell/Carlson 25" console color TV came in. :jester: those colors were downright fluorescent on those old sets.

So, the future was going to be fluorescent ... then what happened?
Actually, I'm kind a glad it isn't, at least that it isn't yet!

For awhile (~80s through either late 90s or part of 2000s), nerds ruled during the tech revolutions:

Just for a short while, ...until profits, greed, and the realities of mainstream society took back over.

Oh, and the most recent "Star Trek" shows are not:

Thanks.

I like your Architect. I'm one of the minority who think Matrix #2 was pretty thoughtful, and the Architect scene--plus the ones with the Oracle--are some of my favorite.

11:28 of https://youtu.be/zsmqcLv8Q-4?t=688 <<WARNING: Language, harsh critiques, and more...
"When did Star Trek become so mundane and petty?
The whole point of this show..."
[transitions to TNG clips]
"...was to present a more evolved, enlightened version of humanity that had moved beyond the stupid ---- that we obsess over today,
and turned its eyes towards the stars.
It appealed to our aspirations to be more than we are,
to reach for higher and more noble goals,
to explore the boundless potential that exists within us."

[Audio quote of Data speaking to his daughter]:
"'It is the struggle itself, that is most important.
We must strive to be more than we are, Lal.
It does not matter that we will never reach our ultimate goal:
the effort yields its own rewards.'"
...
"It wasn't a perfect world, and things like jealousy, personal ambition, and moral flexibility could still cause problems and conflict, but ------, it was better than this: The world of Star Trek Picard is basically our present day culture with all its angst and hang-ups and fears, only with better technology, and that's just ------- depressing."
