TNG/DS9/VOY/ENT's warp effects always annoyed me. The stars streak past way too quickly to be in any way realistic. And the elastic band/Q poof jump just doesn't work for me. What is that flash of light supposed to be and where does it come from?
I just rewatched Into Darkness, and there are streaking stars during warp, particularly with the warp "tunnel" when the Vengeance is chasing the Enterprise. Kind of hard to see because of the different shades of blue, black, and white, but they're there. Perhaps to your annoyance, the stars streak by *much* faster and quicker than TNG/DS9/VOY/ENT ever did
I just rewatched the scene but I can't see them.
Correction on my part: perhaps not the chase scene, but the first warp scene, right after Kirk's speech to the crew about hunting Khan on Kronos (specifically, when the Enterprise is flying towards the camera).

On a side note, I rewatched the chase scene after your post, and noticed that when the Vengeance knocks the Enterprise out of warp, breaking through the warp tunnel sounded a lot like a TNG-style warp flash. It's perhaps coincidence and unintentional that the sound effect just happens to sound like that, but it still made me smile.

Speaking as a nitpicker, of course.
