* Seeing actual 23rd Century sceneries (not that garden from VOY).
* Kirk flirting with every female he crosses path with.
* The new Warp Speed effects (and warp tunnel)
* Warp Speed Deaths™!!!
* The Warp Core Chamber. To me it looked like the chamber where Akira was kept frozen in the Japanese animated movie.
* The "where no one
has gone before" retcon!
