I do miss the 'disco tunnel' warp speed FX of ST The Motion Picture, done by the slit-scan technique which i believe Doug Trumbull invented for 2001. That's still the best 'models & string' FX movie in my book. No CGI, practical FX that blows the minds of today's generation who can't understand how a 50 year old movie did it without computing power approaching NASA!. Genius idea, build a giant mouse wheel.....Bit of a derailment, but I really miss practical effects shots. I don't want to go so far as to say that CGI has ruined everything but when you read how ILM did seemingly simple stuff like e.g the Enterprise D stretching as it goes to warp, it's really ingenious, ground-breaking stuff that requires in-depth knowledge of how light and cameras work, not to mention the manual compositing and editing processes.
Being able to do stuff like that semi-trivially in software means that special effects are no longer special.
Having said that though, the warp-drive wormhole bit in ST TMP was early CGI. It was apparently a real pain to film with multiple takes in 70mm. They had to repeat scenes to get the ' light flares' off people & the set. I think it took nearly 3 weeks to shoot for a 2- minute sequence!.
