Star Trek was about characters being philosophical and exploring the human condition, using science that was credible
No, it wasn't. It was a TV action/drama series, and the science was rarely credible.

...a criteria established by Roddenberry at the onset of the franchise
No, he didn't. "Wagon Train To The Stars." You ever watch Wagon Train, BTW?

...and solving issues through diplomacy and negotiation, and occasionally, with weapons.
Frequently weapons, and a fist fight or two just about every week.

STID is a lot more like the original Star Trek television series than any previous Star Trek movie.
I'd just like to know what show these folks were watching?
