Re: No real match for Enterprise refit/Ent-A in the TOS movies?

I was always struck by how unimaginative the space battles were. For instance, they could have done some crazy/scary stuff showing weapons slamming into deflector shields which stop 99.9% of the blast but the tiny fraction that manages to bleed through does serious damage. It would have been visually arresting and made the power such ships would have to possess much more tangible. If their weapons are more powerful than atomics they should bloody well look like it.
