Oh, they're interested in the future.  Flying cars,
genocidal robot armies, and crews who just happen to
collectively enjoy 20th century pop culture.  But not
the real future, where many (as opposed to just a
certain few) important things are different and many
modern modes of thinking are obsolete.  Kind of like a
British armchair general of ~1750 reading military
fiction, totally uninterested in soldiers who shoot
from cover instead of marching and firing in
gentlemanly exposed ranks.
