Re: Into Darkness and the novelverse [SPOILERS]

Beaming very long distances will remain uncommon if Trek is to remain in the form that has served it well for several decades, which it will because that is a real world business decision.

This will necessitate some in universe reason for its limitation - power, cost or unreliability seem the best options. In a cashless economy with virtually limitless energy, unreliability looks to be the favourite.

I don't think there's much option.
Soon oh soon the light, Pass within and soothe this endless night, And wait here for you, Our reason to be here...
