Especially as not every single hour of Trek ever made examined the human condition or was cerebral anyway.
Plenty of it was far worse than anything in the new film.
Basically 'cerebral' Trek simply doesn't work on the big screen. It's not fitted for it. You have to put it on TV to get it. So if the movie is all action - that's fine by me.
