I was kinda disappointed that the chamber kirk went into didn't have more glowing effects (Lens Flares??) in it.
Seemed like a bit of a let-down after seeing what Spock stuck his head into for TWoK.
To me, it looked more practical, and I loved that.
Also, and I know not everyone had this reaction, but in the death scene, where Kirk says, "ship out of danger?" I damn near pissed myself with fan glee.
