I remember reading an interview (possibly with Nimoy), and he said that the effects were shoddy because there was some kind of strike/job action going on with the FX people, and they had to make too many compromises in order to get the film to a completed state.
There was no strike that affected the visual effects crews specifically. The shoddy effects were due to the fact that ILM was too busy to take on the project and Paramount gave the gig to Brian Ferren who didn't have a shop already set up to do the kinds of motion control photography required. Add a short schedule and you've got a recipe for crap.
