For not appreciating accusations of neoconservatism, I find it interesting that you see the benefits of the particles mainly in terms of how they improve military capacity. I'm sure a peaceful organization like the Federation is desperate to have soldiers with longer lifespans so they can, presumably, wage longer wars.

I'm bringing this up because the events of the movie take place during a war, so of course the military application of it is relevant.
And it is, as Hartzilla2007 so astutely pointed out, an utterly worthless "advantage" given whom they were fighting.

something's not worthless just because your opponent does it better.
