I don't know if you saw the last few episodes of DS9 (yes, the B5 and
SeaQuest stuff stunk), but the destruction of the USS Defiant was truly
spectacular (for a cgi explosion), and quite realistic IMO. I've watched
the thing many times, and just the sheer amount of detail is amazing (you
can see lots of inner frame-work, little fires, etc...). There were a few
other sequences from big Trek battles that were nearly as impressive. They
can do it, and they have done it, they just need to spend the time....
