The key thing to keep in mind is that Starfinder is not going to be a SciFi game. So if you're looking for Star Frontiers, Star Trek, or a hard sciencey game.... you're boarding the wrong starship.
I agree with your point. I think somebody mentioned Farscape and everything I heard about Starfinder seems to jive with that.
I wish people would stop using Star Trek as an example of hard sci-fi. I like Star Trek, but I am also a fan of hard sci-fi and some occasional techno-babble does not make the story hard sci-fi. The difference between Star Trek and Star Wars is not hard vs soft but instead that Star Wars technology has become so mundane and ubiquitous to its characters that they no longer stop to explain how it works.
