Does anyone else prefer TMP
's orbiting space station to the gargantuan orbiting megalopolis from ST3
I always liked that appears more "credible", seemingly build from technology from "times past", not to mention it doesn't overwhelm the Enterprise
in terms of "awe". Of course, I probably have the lingering memory of the Enterprise being "the largest man-made object in space" (from which I don't even recall the source of this comment)!
It probably helps that I love the music in this scene, too!
