Did they miss all those episodes where Kirk literally romanced the female guest star of the week???
You forgot a couple of them:
-Nurse Chapel/Spock from TOS
- Worf/Jadzia from DS9. They got married.
He did a lot of Kirking. They got Kirked.
James T Kirk was Dylan Hunt before there was Dylan Hunt
Vina/Chris was an important element of the original pilot. That's gotta be Gene's Vision.
IIRC I was stuck at work (the nerve of those people! Don't they have their priorities straight?)
Oh, and no romance in Trek (or at least not a focal point in the plot)?
TOS: Kirk/Rayna, Kirk/Odonna, Kirk/Miramanee, etc., hell, Kirk/Edith, in what virtually everyone calls a top 5 episode of Trek, period (City on the Freakin' Edge o' Forever, yo')
TNG: Riker/Troi, Picard/Vash, Picard/Nella Darin (sp?)
DS9: Worf/Jadzia, Bashir/Ezri Dax
Kelvin timeline films: Spock/Uhura
DISCO: Burnham/Tyler, L'Rell/Vok, Culmets
Those are ones I can name off the top of my head.
Guys, with the planned Axanar feature we had Garth/Corax to look forward to. With Garth played by 60-year-old Alec Peters and Corax played by a 20-something.
A bunch of gullible rubes?
The Bashir-O’Brien bromance is one for the ages.

Yet they keep right on watching and many are paying CBS for the privilege.
I tried to read the script, but only made it about 3 or 4 pages into it before I gave up.
What? "Fire photon torpedoes!" immediately followed by "Photon torpedoes, FIRE!" wasn't riveting-enough prose for you? Pfft! Some people just can never be happy...
Tried reading the new Four Years War script. It's a slog. Not a real improvement on the previous atrocity that was the Axanar screenplay. Still no story. Still BSG in Trek drag.
Also still not sanguine about the Enterprise being built in an arms race, as a weapon to balance the scales.
FWIW, it is a (barely) subtextual element of the text in the TMP blueprints by Kimbell and Probert that the refit of Enterprise was undertaken to keep up with Klingons' improved/upgraded D7, so-called model DRELL-4 aka the K't'inga-class; see final paragraph on sheet 6 of 14 [https://www.cygnus-x1.net/links/lcars/star-trek-the-motion-picture.php]. So, my point is simply that it would not be an original idea.
To be fair, Hollywood hasn't had an original idea in decades, so why should we expect Alec Peters to have one??
To be fair, the motion picture industry wasn't exactly built on new ideas.
Hollywood isn't here to tell you new stories. They're a business, and if shitty shlock is what sells, and it does because that's what people eat up, then that's what they're going to make.
I do not go to Hollywood for originality.
