Re: Anyone Find Generations "Saucer crash" to be poorly done?

I can't help but be reminded of my biggest issue with Generations... What the heck is up with the lighting?
It's the new alert level, one step below yellow alert, "something's afoot".

Aside from a half second where I'm reminded it's one big model being dragged along, the whole thing looks so well. You really get a sense of a lot of mass plummeting towards the planet surface about to receive one heck of a thump. The only other scene I can think of like it in Trek was the shot in DS9 of Sisko's captured Jem Hadar ship spinning toward's a planet below.

The window above the bridge cracking was a bit odd though, like the view screen in the 09 movie turning out to be an actual window with a HUD-style overlay.
