It had one function: To show the passing of the torch from Spock's era to the new era. It functioned fine.
Didn't Spock already pass the torch when he had that scene with NuSpock? That was the passing of the torch, not this line. And what I'm about to say I mean simply because we'll never know, but chances are good that this could be Leonard Nimoy's very last appearance as Spock in any medium. So when his character of Spock gives us his last line spoken on film (not counting the ending narration), why not make it a little more memorable? I'm not saying what they went with was a disaster, but even I know the real line should go "One quarter impulse power".
