Okay... you win. It's Star Trek with tech no one has seen before, with situations unheard or contemplated, and they don't use ships anymore, since long-range teleportation has been perfected. The Federation became moot, so it's gone, of course. Romulans and Klingons will all have committed mass suicide, from a lack of wars causing massive depression (or have integrated, and thus no longer enemies).That makes no sense . How can you limit the timeline of a show?
Why? That makes no sense for you to say that! Universe in which Star Trek exist will not stop existing beyond that point the universe would continue and I would like to know what happens when Star Fleet has to evolve to survive. The jump between Picard & Kirk is huge, its not a seat of your pants operation like it was in Kirk's time when Picard was doing his thing, Star Trek evolved! If it had not it would not have been relative in this day and age!
Considering all the times you criticised @BAYLOR for his opinion on Discovery, I don't understand this opinion about a Star Trek series set in the future.So yeah - have a series in the same universe! But it's no longer a star trek - name it something different. I'll watch it!
Only because it is set during a war. DS9 was too during the long Dominion war arc. Single episodes of TNG and Voyager and DS9 were dystopian too, when they dealt with the Borg, or the Maquis, or the Cardassian/Bajoran conflict, or Delta Quadrant issues. We know that the Klingon war in Discovery will be over within 10 years, so we can have hope for the future.It is dystopian rather than utopian.
The 30th Century would, indeed, provide a plethora of interesting and imaginative stories! But ENT, DISCOVERY, TOS, TNG and DS9 have all centered around violence - especially militarily. There's no way this would be believable come the 30th century in the Star Trek universe!
I think we can certainly stretch it to the 27th Century and see the Timeships of Captain Braxton, but not very much beyond that era.We've already seen Star Fleet officers from the far future in Voyager and Enterprise so there is already a foundation to build on.

Read the post again. I am not against a series from the Star Trek universe, set 500 years in the future - I'm against it being called Star Trek. It could, however, make it clear it's the same universe: "Federation 3011" - or something.
Dystopian? Really? Your idea of Dystopian life seems rather... comfortable.I watch Discovery and I think it has promise as a TV show but it is not Star Trek as it's supposed to be. It is dystopian rather than utopian.
Seems an odd distinction to me.Read the post again. I am not against a series from the Star Trek universe, set 500 years in the future - I'm against it being called Star Trek. It could, however, make it clear it's the same universe: "Federation 3011" - or something.

I never clamoured for it so I don't think the fact that others did mean that I can't feel that way.But anyway: Star Trek fans have clamored for years to see the Klingon-Federation war. Now that it's here, it's "not Star Trek as it's supposed to be"??
You keep saying that... despite my saying I would definitely watch such a show.
I'd say that the impression given in The Original Series was that wars were a thing of the past; something that the United Federation of Planets had risen beyond and above. There was even hope that the very old enemies of Earth and Vulcan; the Romulans, could be brought into the same fold with time. There was still conflict, because you don't have a show with some conflict, but there was the expectation that these little spats were only the last gasps of an old thinking.I would also not equate war with dystopia - but that's just my opinion.
