...do not make me think of a warp core breach at all. I think it would far more realistic if ships exploded like they do in the show, where there is a big whitish-orange cloud. Borg and Romulan ship explosions look fine, but I think there needs to be more debris for Borg.

Just my thought.

I think they should make them have a white flash then a Ring when they blowup like in Startrek Bridge Commander (Nano Fx mod)

I agree. Been thinking warp core breaches have needed an update. Especially after LOR since I was thinking better FX might not be possible, but with the new singularity core explosions it definitely seems possible now.

That would work, the Nano FX is also very similar to that seen in series and movies.

Also the breach of the Pasteur's core in All Good Things, which was similar to the battle section's explosion in Generations, albeit with a smaller effects budget.

I have to agree. The normal Warp Core Breeches look a bit eh compared to how hardcore they were in the shows when they actually happened.

The Romulan implosions (and the Haapax) remind me massively of Starblazers: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eXnJr...utu.be&t=2m57s
