It seems to me something is wrong. I thought the last ST movie with the really young crew looked out of place in a rather modern looking craft.

What am I missing? Is there a reason fir it or are producers and set designers just too lazy these days? Were the Tribbles involved somehow?
The original Star Trek series was made on a budget - the transporter was invented for that reason alone.

And I don't know about the Enterprise being a rust bucket. Seems in the tribble episode, Klingons called it a garbage scow, and got handed the deck for their trouble.

So, anyway - you're not liking the early Enterprise because it wasn't modern enough and the latest one was too modern. There's actually a story about that, it's called Goldilocks and the Three Bears.
