True, the characters' relationship wasn't established in previous episodes but simply came out of the left field, this made it harder to emphasize with them.
It was a rare family moment for Captain Kirk, but the wedding couple was supposed to be the focus and driving force of the scene.
At least it wasn't Hidden Frontier (a pioneer in the modern Trek fan film scene, but far from perfect). There, on the other side of the spectrum it was already established that the audience liked both characters, but it took seemingly forever for those two, pushing most of the rest of the show into the background.
Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.
