    I've noticed the similarities too since the first film in 2014. Particularly with Peter Quill, who's extremely reminiscent of nuKirk from the first two nuTrek films. The thing is, I actually buy Quill as a rogue, whereas I could not buy Orci/Kurtzman's nuKirk as as a Starfleet officer.

    I didn't notice this at first, but now I see it. I just chocked it up to this kind of effect being the standard look of warp in films now

    Star Trek is not supposed to be "fun" you unsophisticated philistine!
    We go to Trek films to learn more, to strive for more, to embrace more. The Great Bird opens our minds, and lights our pathways.
    WHEN WILL YOU PEOPLE GET IT!?!?!?!?!?!?

    I think it's more of a coincidence because somebody thought it would be a cool-looking effect.

    It's like how ILM made the exploding ring effect in Star Trek VI: TUC, then a few years later they made all the explosions in the Star Wars special editions look like that too. It wasn't meant as an homage.
