I'm almost done with Season 2, and I think I found a silver lining to this FX criticism. There really isn't much in season 2 that utilized special effects. It doesn't put HTV off the hook, but watching all the episodes up through Emissary, I can only think of a few episodes (Pen Pals being the best example) where special effects really mattered. I am looking forward to seeing Peek Performance since Davejames mentioned that episode looked good, at least the battle sequences with the Enterprise and Hathaway. Still, Season 2 doesn't have much in terms of visual effects, unlike Season 1 or 3. I'm really looking forward to the season 3 effects, like what we see in Evolution, Best of Both Worlds, and even the minor stuff like the asteroid belt in Booby Trap. Since it's being done by CBS Digital, I almost expect it to be the best set of the 7, in terms of visual effects stuff.
