I think it's important for fans to keep in mind that the future envisioned back in the '60's is very different from the future envisioned now. And if there is any hope in pulling in new fans to keep the franchise going strong, then yes, things will have to be updated so that the younger generations sitting in the theater don't look at knobs and dials and women making coffee for the captain and go "Wow, that's both stupid AND corny", and then immediately tune out. Yes, it's going to look different because the concept of the future has changed, and I'm sure in 40 years ST XI will look stupid and corny and way off from the future we envision then.

I'm just hoping JJ et al have found a nice balance between the antiseptic look of TNG and the grittiness of the new BSG.
