Yeah The sound would be my #1 suggestion for a fix where technical stuff goes. Make sure you have a suitable mic type for what you're recording.
This film gets off on the wrong foot because the battle is so...rote.
What bugs me is the Captain acts so inert. It's never really clear why they're taking such a pounding. Do these other ships outclass them?
Question: is that sound effect of the shields being hit from the Sega Star Trek arcade game? It sure sounds like it!
