That's precisely why I suggested those eras. As an homage to the shows that have already done it.

The reason why past ST shows rarely time traveled to our near future is that it's more fun to have the characters travel to our distant past with German guards or '20s flappers than it is to a future that more or less resembles our own.

I'm not arguing against your idea necessarily-- in fact, you probably have a better shot at getting your scenario made than I. But if it were up to me, I would find a mission that time traveled to the distant past a lot more enjoyable than one that took place in, say, 2045 or something.
