No, not at all. In fact, it hinders the show by distracting the viewer with a bunch of modern CGI that clashes with everything else on the show and sticks out like a sore thumb.
I agree. The new effects look like half-assed modern day CGI, especially the new shots of the Enterprise.
Nah, I think the new effects added to the drama & menace of the episode, especially adding great sequences showing better, more logical positional relationships between the ships & the machine in battle. The only qualm I have is in the one sequence where Kirk & Scotty start up the battered Constellation's engines & are whipped around from wall to wall, then Scotty flips a switch & cut to an exterior shot of the Constellation just sitting there quietly as the impulse engines fire up & send it on its way. They should of at least shown the Constellation moving &/or wavering a little at an odd angle before the impulse engines kick in & right the ship.
