I agree. Nothing in this movie (I am loathe to call it a film) is on the intellectual level of the space hippies, or the space Nazis, for that matter. Not one parallel Earth, no evil twins, no Abraham Lincoln, space Indians, no OK Corral, no giant white rabbit, no aliens that practice witchcraft or love Plato, no Kirk and Spock BDSM, hell, Kirk doesn't even rip his shirt once. And he never talks a computer to death. "Zero smarts" for sure!
