My reaction was the inverse of what a lot of folks are saying – I thought the first 20 minutes felt disjointed, but the film improved quite a bit once it settled into the more comfortable "intimate character moments" style.
It's probably not wise to post screencaps at this juncture, considering the...questionable...legality of the copies out there, but if anyone takes a look at the cities of Libra and Virgon, Pierre Drolet recycled elements from the Romulan captial in Nemesis
for some of the architecture. Notably, the staircases and the whole Romulan Senate building
, which can be seen in the lower left-hand frame after the Hybrid says "The forests of Virgon are burning." Anything to save time on a project.
ETA: It looks like portions of the central "ring" with those angular Romulan ornaments made it into the upper left of frame as well.
