Please, space is so vast that the Federation could've had hundreds of starships like Kirk's Enterprise and it would still always be the "only one in the area", both because it is the protagonist's ship, and because the chance that any two of these starships would be equidistant from a crisis spot would be nearly zero.

A great point, and very likely anywhere on the middle to outer reaches of the Federation, but in the middle around Earth and the other Member worlds, I don't buy it. Not saying it isn't possible, just not credible, IMO.

And the Talosians would make the Klingons see an empty planet, or worse, one full of tribbles.
The Klingons would probably wonder why any ship sent there never returns.
