I'm in the early stages process of designing a TCG game. I'm basing it on eras of man. I have most of the past and present mapped out, but I need futures. So far I have 3 Futures, which are pretty self explanatory.
I've got "Roadwarrior Future" and "Starfleet Future" under "near future possibles". (alternate timelines are totally fine. They're going to be pulled into the void Rifts style to fight each other). Further along the line under "far future possibles", I have what I call "New Atlantis/Babel" Future. Can anyone give me some different speculative futures?

I've got a neat blog about RPG gamer movies. It's called Diceroller Flicks and it's back after a several month long dry spell!

The Post-Human future, where humanity has wiped itself out or otherwise died off, and monkeys/cockroaches/wallabies/whatever have developed sentience and taken over the planet. AKA the Planet of the Apes future.

Huxley's imagined future as shown in Brave New World - society and men are manufactured for their pleasure and profit.

You forget the Galactic Future, which is a bit beyond the Starfleet Future but quite common in SciFi books. Humanity has settled the galaxy for a long, long time. Thousands of years, maybe millions in some cases. They don't even remember where they came from. All that remains is either a Galactic Empire or a few hundred fractious stellar states.
If you want to go farther than that, 1 Million A.D./House of Suns by Reynolds introduces the concept that every few thousand years or so, someone conquers the galaxy, then falls again and is forgotten and no progress at all is made anymore on the grand scale.
The Culture from Ian M. Banks' novels.
