Why do Star Trek and Star Wars fans think that all media must tie into a single, consistent continuity?
They don't.

Do Batman fans complain that Nolan's Dark Knight movies are consistent with the Burton Batman movies?
Sure. Some.

And both movie versions don't stick with the continuity of Batman comics and TV shows (both live-action and animated).
And Catwoman switched from caucasian to African-American in the 60s TV series, a trick repeated by Harvey Dent, in reverse, in the "Batman" movies of the late 80s and 90s.

If Star Trek was one big canon between all media, there would never be any new five-year mission stories because the timeline is filled to capacity.
You've answered your own question. Not all ST fans think the way you stated.
