It is a personal preference. Maybe it's born out of the frustration of our modern throwaway society. I don't like magical technology much because we pretend there's no cost, no side effects, etc. I'd rather the tech had warts and all. It clearly doesn't bother the writers and if it doesn't bother you then groovy but it does bug me a bit.
What's this got to do with the technology in STID?
I'd prefer it if transporters sent crewmen down to planets and starships took them strange new worlds rather than the other way round. We just got into a debate about the energy that would be needed in STiD it lift a starship the size of the JJprise in a gravity environment.
Not to mention the energies required to propel a starship at FTL-speeds through the universe.
