I haven't yet seen them invent their own stuff. I could be wrong.
But that's the opposite of what you said you wanted them to do when you stated that they should have studied ship architecture, exploration vessels, and depictions of futuristic spacecraft in fiction.

I think the overuse of lens flares detracts from the visual appearance of the bridge.
Funnily enough, when I was paying attention to the dialogue and events of the movie, the lens flares barely even registered with me. Besides, they're far less prominent in STiD than they were in the previous film. They're an occasionally amusing --if overused-- joke about Abrams Trek, not any real detriment to the film, IMO.
'First Contact' is the tale of a man who just wants to cash in on his creation so he can get wasted on an island full of naked women, but his fans keep insisting that he's a saintly visionary who has profoundly altered the world. AKA - 'I Don't Want to be a Statue: The Gene Roddenberry Story.'
