I see its flaws, I understand the perfectly legitimate criticisms - and yet - I still love it. It's tremendous fun, and has a real sense of energy.
This. As well as the energy and fun, I love the crew's interactions (Scotty/Uhura weirdness aside). They're friends first and officers second. That they're all taking shore leave together is at once sad and sweet.

And Sybok is an excellent character, who I think adds a great deal to Spock's backstory - why did Sarek pressure Spock so intently to be the emotionless Vulcan archetype? Because Sarek's fully Vulcan son was exiled for embracing his emotions. He must have been terrified his half-human child (and human wife) would suffer the same fate.
