Hardly, Abrams Trek warp sequence is highly derivative, the flash streak has been used by Star Wars and dozens of other science fictions, the stretching in the bridge view is straight out of Starship Troopers, there is nothing about the effect that the Abrams film can specifically lay claim to.
I've always though the Star Trek rainbow streak out looked corny, the vehicle is clearly not moving fast enough to leave a light trail behind, but that is what we have now for Star Trek, the flash disappear sequence from the Abrams film just doesn't look like something you would expect to see in Star Trek even though the effect looks great.
