I don't think Adrian Monk would like transporters

Star Trek 11 provided us with the best transporter effect sequence since TOS and the motion picture. I really didnt like the other interpretations. This was one of the things i was fearing but im really pleased with the outcome.

It was okay. I didn't like it as much as previous versions. I prefer the TNG style effect. This new version didn't look right for some reason. It didn't look like a de/re-materialization effect to me. It looked more like a cocoon encasing the person. Wierd looking to me. But the sound effect was close enough to TOS but updated enough to sound pretty modern. So in conclusion, I liked the sound, didn't like the effect.

I felt the effect was a modernize version of the TOS transporter effect. Made it look like it was literally taking someone apart and resconstructing them , which is what it does.

See, I didn't get that. To me the swirly effect seemed to envelop the person and then move them to wherever and then unwrap from around them. I didn't get the same de-construction or de-materialization feel as from other transporter effects over the years. But that's just my interpretation.

It might because the actual transport process only takes a nanosecond and what we're actually seeing is just the before and after effects.

Yep, the 'effect' is just a light show that hides the blink-and-miss-it moment of the beam itself.

I thought it looked pretty good in the new film - obviously a little different from TOS but as it's another element that has been altered several times over the years it certainly wasn't jarringly different.

I liked the swirly-whirly thingy but the absence of the usual glitter element (which was present in all previous variations of the original transporter effect) did indeed not create the impression of de-materialization.

Visually pleasing but lacking substance, my short opinion on the transporter effect and the movie in general.
