I think my favorite is the Enterprise-D warp effect. The glow from the engines, the sound effect, and the two flashes as it warps away just gives an impression of power. The stretchy warping of the ship thing in the middle is kind of stupid though. I like the movement part of 0:36 much better.

The JJ warp effect isn't terrible, but I loathe the fact there's no flash. That's just stupid.

As for the STO version, I think the problem is the fact that the sound effects and the visuals are the same no matter the ship. It doesn't matter whether you're in a piddly runabout, or a city-sized Galaxy Class, you get the same effect. I'm sure that's part of it.

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.
