Funny thing is that progress is not linear or universal.
Todays computer technology is pretty much way beyond what we have seen in any of the Star Trek series.
Honestly static LCARS displays is so last century in a day and age with dynamic interactive multi-touch displays and motion/gesture control systems.
And just imagine what starfleet could do with smartphones!

Yet our space tech is still in its infancy, and 99% of the world also still relies on internal combustion engines to propel their vehicles.
