let's make a quick list of all the bad shit about it

Why does the color matter? Would you have preferred none, like the Prime movie era ships?

The "in subspace" effect was the same; the "jump to warp" effect was substantially the same, just with the "trail" added. And more than justified by the extensive engineering refits the ship has apparently had.

Just like "Tomorrow is Yesterday". (Now, if you wanted to complain about it working underwater... )

The ship is off the books already (because who at Starfleet in their right minds would accept a ship with that name). What's a few buckets of paint at that point?

The Enterprise crew wasn't exactly in a position to bat an eye at that point. Kirk did acknowledge the heavy death toll in his scene at the end. What else would you have liked to have seen done here?

I thought it explained itself pretty well. And it wasn't supposed to be a bungee jump!

"The next day"? That scene was almost a year later.

Lawrence Livermore Laboratory's National Ignition Facility.
