The reason I've always liked the federation-centric stories is because they were 'cool'. By that I mean that starfleet ships and starfleet bases were places where I wanted to be. They were places where I wanted to spend some time. Not so much with the bumpy-headed aliens of the week. But as I said, I think I may be in the minority.
I understand that and actually agree with you at some level. But that's not a good premise for a movie intended to attract casual fans and non-fans. The only people who might be interested in a film about the nuts and bolts of the UFP are hard-core Trek fans. The rest won't bother to see the film.
