I agree the nacelles could have been a shwee smaller.
But as for the idea of the effects being more like past films?
No....that's just a step backward for personal nostolgia's sake, when the film has to compete with other sci-fi properties on the market.
Thrumming warp core we may yet get.
And not once did I get a Star Wars vibe, actually.
This came across as something completely different.
