To me, action set-pieces like Kirk flying his Falcon-ripoff through Kronos as if it's the Death Star in ROTJ--it's just dull rote action. Barrel roles and SW-style one-liners in the cockpit about not being able to fit through cracks. The build-up of the Reliant's surprise attack and the cat-and-mouse that leads to cracking the security codes and lowering Khan's shields "here it comes" complete with Horner's perfectly synced soundtrack--that is sooo much more entertaining.
I find both entertaining.

Me too
Trek 2-6 were filmed like TV episodes. JJ Trek and TMP were actually done on movie budgets. If TOS had a budget, I could totally see them doing a scene like we saw in Into Darkness. Even on DS9 they had a runabout chase through an asteroid belt, or runabouts being chased even Defiant hunting down Jemhadar fighters, etc. Nothing wrong with that.

Back to TOS, Doomsday Machine had some great "one liners" back in the day.
