I agree. To me, the Borg/Starfleet battle sequences are the best effects to date. I really wished it would have gone on another five minutes.

I love it when they use models, however, when they are used for exposions, they tend to look weak. For its time, TWOK was incredible, but the model explosions were a tad fakey in my opinion. Also, that huge Chekov ear left a lot to be desired of . .
As long as there are no huge ear models in the new film, we should be ok.
