Well, may have something to do with the two biggies (christianity and islam), demand a primitive and bleak look at the future. They are completely terrestrial, full of conflicts on horseback, and end with the end of humanity and the universe in some silly judgement day.

To put it simply, if StarTrek is to be true....the bible can not be. So it would make sense that the characters living on planet Farfugu Beta-3, intermingling with the Xuloons, and creating time machines.....would probably not still be believing to strongly in the wacky prophecies of shroomed out nomads from the middle east.
