this was one thing that was worrying me but i loved it. it remained essentially the old noise effect but visually different. the best transporter effect since TMP in my opinion.

That's a fair point - rather than just being presented as 'press a button and it's done' which seems a tad cavalier when dis-assembling a body and restoring it, it showed that it requires some skill to do.

I liked it. I found it interesting how they implied a sort of cocooning effect, especially when Sulu and Kirk had their mid-fall transport. Once they materialized on the pad it was clear there was some solid element surrounding them. It sounded like broken glass when they hit the transporter pad.

I liked the effect.

Was that not the actual glass panel on the floor of the transporter pad that was breaking when their weight hit it?

Could've been! It's just how I read it. It seemed like solid pieces of the transporter effect shot off the two as they materialized accompanied by glass breaking sound.

Yes, what was with that? We didn't see anything broken.

Like Quark, I didn't like the delay in transporting. But your comments made me realize that in TOS, there was always someone actually adjusting controls before and during the beam up. They just did not show the 'locking on' part in TOS, but I think it was mentioned in passing- "ready to beam up."

Yeah, certainly in TOS it was never instant, but the way the delay was shown was just different.
