The special effects I'm most excited to take a gander at are:
Transporters
phasers
warp drive
tricorders
bridge and sickbay stations
I love me some gadgets!

Don't forget the hypo-sprays (medical equipment)

If we see someone who needs to be restrained in sickbay, I hope they don't use straps that look like seatbelts, which is what I was always reminded of in TOS.

Yeah, I definately want to hear the transporter, but we can't forget about the "swoosh" sound of the doors either.

I'm hoping this new Star Trek has all new sounds and laser beams. There has to be something to separate it from the TV era. Star Trek 1 to 6 was awesome, but that is 1980's era. We are literally in the 21st century. We need 21st century stuff. The Clingon characters need to be changed to soemthing more frightful. Like UFO creatures.

I took my high schoold girlfriend to see Star Trek IV and she had to go kicking and dragging her feet. Then she snoozed off. Now I know why. I aged.

The Klingons don't need to be reimagined. You keep mentioning "UFO creatures," but this isn't "Independence Day" or "Starship Troopers."

"Star Trek" is about exploration. It's not a war to save the galaxy and it's not about shock value. "Star Trek" has never been about the science fiction. It's always been about the people---the crew and, in some way, humanity as a whole.

It just doesn't sound like you get what's at the heart of Star Trek, I'm sorry.

I do get it. Exploring has limits. Do you think Cortez was exploring Mexico? No. He went there to kick butt on Aztec head loppers.

You're comparing an apple to an orange. Cortez didn't find UFO creatures, either.
