There is no Star Trek for the sake of Star Trek. Hollywood is a business and shows have to make money. The original was a losing proposition for NBC, which was why it was cancelled after three seasons and sat on the cancellation bubble for the entirety of its network run. I have my issues with Discovery, and consider it an alternate timeline. But if I'm sitting atop of CBS and my job depends on the show being watched and being profitable, I'd have probably made many of the same decisions that they have up to this point. It is easy to sit on this side and shit on what they've done up to this point, I know I have on more than one occasion, but at some point the reality of the situation sets in. Doesn't mean one can't be critical, but do take a moment to evaluate the overall situation.
