Superficially, yes. A lightning storm in space. For me, TMP is the penultimate Trek film, I watched it again after seeing Star Trek (2009). I didn't feel they were similar at all. TMP was much deeper, it felt like 'classic' Trek, but for the big screen. Star Trek (2009) didn't have the same feel to it, it felt more like a fast-moving roller coaster ride. Star Trek (2009) actually borrows from several films, not just TMP, someone noted the similarities with Nemesis, also the torture scene with Captain Pike reminds one of the torture scene in TWOK.
