True. But you can modernize the look of TOS without drastically altering the style. A big part of why ST:TOS doesn't look "futuristic" any longer is the 1960's style lighting, camera work and let's face it, the 60's hairstyles.

Fans produce TOS based films with faithful reproductions of the sets and props and they look fine. There's a new one in production set int the time when Earth had it's own ships separate from the UFP. Their tech looks even more dated than TOS or Enterprise but it still works as a future time period.

Just my 2 cents worth.
Those who say it can't be done,
should stop interrupting those of us who are busy doing it!
