Since Usagi saved the future does this mean there will not be an attack on Neo Queen Serenity? I mean at this point in time she wouldn’t have known what would come next. So is it possible that the future changed after sailor moon in the present saved her future?

This is actually a heavily debated topic in the Sailor Moon fandom -- or at least it was heavily debated last time it surfaced around here, lmao.

I interpret the manga as the Black Moon arc effectively changing the future in unseen ways. A lot of this has to do with both Neo-Queen Serenity changing her mind and wanting to see/interact with her past self -- if she already interacted with her future self when she was Usagi, she wouldn't have been so conflicted about it as NQS. But that's just my interpretation, and I know a lot of other people here prefer to interpret the events as happening in one looping timeline with the Black Moon arc happening over and over again.

To be honest, time travel is rarely done well in fiction, and despite the fact that I love the manga, even I have to admit that Takeuchi's strength isn't in storytelling. It's hard to say.

The Black Moon Clan was killed in the 20th century ergo no Black Moon Clan in the 30th century to invade Crystal Tokyo...
The BMC of the 30th century went back in time to the 20th century and were killed there, so that in another thousand years they could be born in order to go back in time and be killed....

Unless the senshi who killed them learned some kind of lesson and prevented the conditions that led to the formation of the BMC, thus forming a time paradox that could potentially destroy the world. Or at least give Pluto a headache.
