Things like compassion and love are incompatible with ambition and power.
Not necessarily. It's a reasonable assumption that most Starfleet officers are somewhat ambitious (they would have to be to qualify for admission to the academy), and higher-ranking officers certainly yield a great deal of power. Yet, Starfleet officers are also among the most compassionate individuals featured in Star Trek. Khan's genetic enhancements make him something of an outlier, but no one is completely without positive emotions.
