Actually it was the Directors cut I just watched, the added scenes were good and helped add context but I think I like IV and VI more.

After the first Star Trek The Motionless Picture this was a step in the right direction. Although Star Trek usually doesn´t need to rely on huge action sequences they needed this to draw an audience or the franchise could have died with this movie. And because the action is not the story but a tool to deliver it this works well.

And please, when complaining about SFX, keep in mind this is 1982. They were building actual models, CGI was in it´s infancy. Personally I always thought the movies from this period stand a better test of time because a movie from, say 2000, that uses CGI looks really old compared to one made 10 years later. With model making and actual set-building it looks more real even today if you know what I mean. But that´s just my view on SFX.
