It has good production values, particularly that great rear-projected graphic on the bridge viewscreen, something we almost never saw in TOS.
That was cool.

It gave the supporting cast bigger roles than usual since Spock was absent for much of it; the scene of Kirk, Sulu, Uhura, and Chekov reasoning out a problem on the bridge is just great stuff. And it has Fred Steiner's best, richest, grandest musical score of the entire series, as if to make up for the story's shortcomings.
All good points--especially Steiner's score. Lovely music during the 1st act.
