The warp drive effects in STO are fine. The only little fixes it needs are:
1. When warping out, the ship should disappear after the white flash instead of stopping and staying there for a moment (or hitting something and bouncing off to the side, lol).
2. There should be better collision avoidance to prevent ships from warping at/through obstacles.
3. EDIT: And the color of the warp drive glow shouldd match the ship instead of always being blue/red.
But the transwarp effect, it's horrible and should be replaced completely. Something where the ship at least enters the conduit instead of exploding in a shower of sparks. And a matching transwarp exit animation should be added instead of using a normal warp-in.
The slipstream effect is kind of lame, too. The slipstream should be longer, an actual tunnel the ship flies through not a scrolling forcefield around it. And it should bend when the ship turns, like in Voyager.
