I've always loved the whole soundtrack. I love Jerry Goldsmith's works, and it really works here. I like him best when he's mixing traditional musical score and bizarre organic style. Along with James Horner (pre-Titanic), Leonard Rosenman, and John Williams, he's one of my favorites.
The cue "A Good Start' is possibly one of the most perfect ending suites ever to a film. The ending part alone is so optimistic that it fits perfectly with the tone of Star Trek in general. Not to mention it fits perfectly with the grand, epic tone the film has been perfecting. Love it or hate it, there's a real atmosphere of wonder prevalent throughout the whole film.
So, yeah. I agree with you on this one.
