I am in NO way saying the effects should have been directly ported from past Trek variations, but at least keep some similarity. I didn't see the "warp" stretching effect, I didn't see a Trek transporter effect, and on and on. O f course I expected something new and different, but not COMPLETELY different. The story has way too many things that were stupid so I won't even start on that road.
You're right; you saw new takes on those effects; you're arguing over personal nostolgia which unfortunately I find, is weak at best.
And for the record, the stretching warp effect always bugged the hell out of me.

And what would they do from a distance?
Sit in the briefing room ala' TNG, while Vulcan is still under attack?
