But you forget (or do not realize) that Star Trek is a sort of mirror of society. Of course we have no intergalactic space ships and transporters/beamers, but the problems they deal with are real. You can look at almost any series/episode and discover hints towards problems we have in todays world (if you allow yourself to think about it for a second).
It also depicts something we as humans should long for: peace amongst each other and the smart use of technology to make life better.
Star Trek also teaches us that there are other values in life to strive for than just "earn.. much.. money".
Caught in the rat race much?
When 3d scanners become mainstream we will face huge problems if we don't work out where the limit to suing people blind for a copy is.

nothing new I'm saying I know, but I felt like posting today...
