While I don't agree wth shortening the Enterprise tour and sacrificing Goldsmith's score, you have to admit he put a lot of thought into the edits for story flow, and I generally agree with most.
I would shorten the TOS flashbacks and make them a semi-transparent overlaid montage vs the full screen sequence.
Showing moon(s) on Vulcan in TMP was careless and disrespectful to TOS/fans given Spock's explicit TOS statement per the clip he showed.
There is another fan edit I've seen on YT I can't find at the moment, where the Vulcan Kolinar scene is placed as a flashback in the Kirk/McCoy/Spock lounge scene, right after McCoy asked Spock about the Kolinar, purging of residual emotion process he had planned- fades to the Vulcan scene/ceremony, then back to the lounge.
But I like the idea of doing the scenes before the main titles to mimic TOS episode style- like Bond films, probably many others in the 70's.
Funny thing, Shatner did that in ST5!
