Have you actually taken a step back and investigated Star Trek's track record as far as internal consistency goes prior to the Abramsverse films? It's an incoherent train wreck that has been given a pass because of creative fans spending decades smoothing over the massive cracks created by having dozens upon dozens of writers with differing visions over seven-hundred plus hours of material.
Exactly. The number of inconsistencies in Trek
are too numerous to count. It's both unreasonable and unfair to expect a group of writers to completely eliminate even a portion of these in the course of one film. I've no doubt that the people putting these movies together attempt
to make them consistent with what's come before, but there's always going to be some small detail they overlook that a minority of fans has a fit about. That's just the way it is.
