The prime universe was the Universe that sucked, spanning from 1967 to 2002 (After this, they made a new universe). The technological advancements from the Kirk era to the Picard era are absolutely ridonkeylous.
In the Kirk era, everything was analog, and there were no computer moniters, except for the giant bulky ones used in the early 1970's. Inside the little round room, there were really loud alarms and flashing lights. And everyone wore cotton shirts, pants that were 3 sizes too small, and long black boots. Women wore one piece cotton uniforms with long black boots. Every ship in that era were made of plastic and were held up by strings that no one could see, and they always seemed to orbit the same Orange planet.
