Aww I thought you actually had a displacement map or distortion object around the starship.. Though latter one would also have distorted the appearance of the planet surface.. which would be both authentical and illogical.
My ultimate favourite is TOS. I like DS9 for the dark twist on the Trekverse. I like VOY for the character-drivenness. I like ENT for the nighty graphics. I like TNG for (some) plotlines (not including Worf).
