A situation doesn't have to be explained to have some kind of workable explicability. And if you don't have the latter, yes, what you generally have is bad writing.
As a few people have already demonstrated with the most casual of effort, the situation easily has workable explicability.

Now, whether or not the audience cares about whether the writing is good is a different question. You point out very correctly that much of the audience and the filmmakers obviously just don't care, and I completely agree with that. If all one is aiming at is forgettable popcorn cinema, then cool. But the thing about shoddily-crafted blockbusters is that they're disposable and usually quickly forgotten, so the question is whether that model is really the "Future of Trek."
You see what you've done here?

I was very careful to craft my words so as to try and illustrate the point, and then you misrepresent what I just said.

Let me try to re-iterate for you...

- Not caring about made up futuristic technobabble nonsense.

- Not caring about good writing.

These are two completely separate things.
