For all I know, Star Trek used to be a sci-fi of ideas, where characters were faced with delightful philosophical dilemmas and puzzles. That seems all gone now. In this 2016 version, the scrip is a pool of genre conventions and cliches.
Big bad villain / looking for artefact of big bad weapon / wins first round of confrontation / holds humans captives / heads for human base to destroy it / looses final battle / humans pat each-other. Hollywood, shame on you.
