I have to agree with you - I really enjoyed this movie when I saw it, regardless of the cheap production effects; the acting was a bit off, and some of the jokes were eye-rollers, but this movie has the most feel of the TOS series and exploring the unknown, which was missing from the other movies - it felt like a TOS episode!

I love this movie, it's one of my very favorite Star Trek movies, and I have many fond memories of it, flaws and all.
