Writer 1: "Star Trek's not enough like Futurama."

Writer 2: "Let's make everything snowblind-white or see-through with HUDs. HUDs are cool."

Writer 1: "Yeah, but it didn't originally have HUDs everywhere."

Writer 2: "No problem, um... okay! Time travel!"

Writer 1: "How does time travel give us HUDs everywhere?"

Writer 2: "****, I dunno. But remember, this isn't for all those nurds who care about that kind of **** anyway."

Writer 1: "Oh, yeah, I forgot. Well, cool! Time travel it is!"

Writer 2: "SUPER cool!"

Never said those particular episodes or films are bad; all I did was imply that time travel as a plot device can be misused to cover lazy writing, which it clearly can, sometimes was in Voyager and Enterprise and easily may have done in the case of Star Trek XI.
