And sixties folks being wowed by Abrams sets doesn't take anything away from the work Jefferies and his designers did on TOS. They blazed the trail that Abrams is following. But Abrams has the advantage of better technology and more money.
Definitely. Jefferies didn't have the budget or technology that the folks working on 2001
had, much less the folks doing the new Trek films. What he and other did was good for a 60s TV budget, but anyone denying that the sets and sfx of the new films would blow the minds of the 1960s TV audience is suffering from a deliberate cognitive dissonance.
