There were tons of new effects in this one and probably a few that some people missed, like the updated ship's chronometer.

The quasar-like phenomenon looked brilliant, especially in the scenes where the ship and shuttlecraft are flying towards it. And the planet looks much better. In the original, it was an eerie green-colored planet (probably to match the color of the original quasar-like phenomenon). But in this version, the planet looks more like a planet. And it's surrounded by the green cloud of the phenomenon. Very nice.

My favorite new effect would have to be when the Galileo jettisons its fuel. That was just spectacular. A thousand times better than the original, as was the Galileo burning up in the planet's atmosphere.

So, the effects get an "A".

The story seemed fairly basic. The shuttlecraft gets lost and the Enterprise searches for them. This is one episode where I think the new effects do help the story, at least a little. The story gets a "B".

Unfortunately, I thought I recorded it, but I actually recorded part of a movie as they have moved the time of Star Trek to 9pm instead of 7pm. I have to wait until next week to see it. And I was looking so forward to watching this one too. Instead I was watching my poor Huskers choke against USC (In as much a college team playing an almost NFL quality team could choke). Double whammy for me, neither one worked out...

I gave it a "B" for story- it was cool to see Spock in command. I also gave it a "B" for CGI. Pretty good improvement from the original, but still not the best to date.

A very good episode. Lot's of special effects - especially the space phenomenon. We can see the shuttlebay.

The story isn't that bad. One thing that irritates me is Spock talking about logic all the time.

"B" for story "A" for CGI. I agree the quasar nebula looked brilliant. And yes more special effects was good. Story was interesting...Spock acted different than usual...doesn't care about dead crewmen and wants to be friends with the quote "group" of monsters. There was only one ;). And if you notice closely, when the monster smashes the boulder on top of the Galileo 7, you can see a guy with messed up curly hair, odd sunshades, and a brown goatee. I find it amusing, and I think they should have made a face for it. The ending was unexpected, Spock acted human...finally. Jettisoned the fuel to make signal was brilliant and completely stupid, as Kirk sais it was out of "desperation". That is my review.

Forgot to mention, as Jamjumetly said: Spock constantly referring to his logic when people are dying was so unlike him. Not the logic part but he almost didn't care for them, and thought the creature was harmless ;)

In Captivity, in war, in peace, I will stand by my ship, and my crew, and never forget my duty as a Starfleet captain.

,,A'' for awesome! In the end Spock has a little emotion.
