The SLV is the only version that includes the complete argument between Kirk and McCoy ("And another thing...." "Get out of here, Bones."), isn't it? That's one of my favorite scenes in the whole film. I don't know why the theatrical and DE cuts removed it. It requires no effects, after all...
The added scenes, IIRC, are rough looking - taken literally from the cutting room floor and re-added into the film.
But in the theatrical cut, McCoy's opening statement in that argument ("The point, Admiral, is that it's you who's competing") is quite obviously dubbed in. When he says that same line in the SLV (later in the argument), it's "live", as it were. It sounds much more natural in that version.
