Not too sure about the re-done Borg Cube explosion at the end of the trailer. Looks like they freeze-framed/slow-framed the explosion, then when the enterprise zooms off let it play. Original somehow looks better. Hope it's just an unfinished shot but I kinda get the feeling it's the finished version.

Someone helpfully posted a comparison video with the original version:
Without a doubt I prefer the second one because it minimises that whole fireworks effect you get with Trek explosions sometimes....
The Borg Cube, the Caretaker array, a few others, this isn't Bonfire Night/July 5th.

Although unrealistic (though you could argue that its the ship atmospheres burning up) I much prefer the explosions in later series DS9 with the flames shooting everywhere, wish they'd gone for more that route with this too.
I don't care what anyone thinks, when I hit the iceberg the iceberg sinks!
