Fans seem completely happy with 10 mile long starships, so transwarp beaming between solar systems probably goes hand in hand. "It's because of Nero."
We have huge Starbases already.
It's not the size, but how you use it... Of course there are huge starbases and such. They, however, aren't suppose to move or travel at warp speed between star systems, or be maneuverable in battle, or etc.... There are enormous energy considerations here, too, and it would really help things if the writers acknowledged that, instead of pretending everything is magically possible because it's "the future."
Well everyone is different I suppose. For me, giant starships are way down on my list of annoyances because they do not bother me. I would just say that everything is simply scaled up for a large starship, perhaps it has multiple warp cores powering it or one huge uber warp core.
