I've noticed that you seem to have a very idealized view of what Trek is, but it doesn't really match the reality of what we've seen on screen over the last forty-five years.
So star trek was philosophically void, scientifically void, morally void, spiritually void, ideologically void all this time and 'we' didn't know it?
It's not one or the other. Star Trek has been full of philosophy and science and morals, but it's also been full of plotholes, technobabble, explosions, and crazy battles.
I have to defend the techno-babble as being scientifically rooted. It is not just made up jargon, especially since TOS and TNG had science advisors on hand to help with that process.

And the ratio of meaningful philosophical conundrums, scientific educational dialog and meaningful plots definitely outnumbers the ratio of meaningless plot-holes.
