I don't wanna piss on anyone's parade, but I'm okay with how it all played out in TOS movies.
Same here.

But I'm also of the opinion that the Constitution-class was never meant to be a dedicated warship (despite what the Klingons would say), but rather a multipurpose vessel that could carry out a wide variety of deep-space missions very well. In that regard, the design was correctly depicted as a powerful ship for its time, but not an invincible one, IMO.
I think nearly all Federation ships were designed with this philosophy - the Federation is usually portrayed as peaceful explorers and scientists that usually like to have the moral high ground compared to the Klingons for example, my point being is that you can still stab someone with a swiss-army knife...
