Fan Outdoes The Transporter Effects In ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ With Christmas Lights And Office Chairs

While I generally enjoyed the film, one of the things I didn’t much like about Star Trek Into Darkness, was the new effect they came up with for the transporter. It just seemed overdone and a bit off.

Well, a Trek fan by the name of Joey Shanks has gone and created his own flashy transporter effect that, in my opinion, looks a lot cooler than the one used in the J.J. Abrams movies, and he did it all with Christmas lights. Yup, Christmas lights — hit the jump to check the effect out…

Not bad. If we can’t go back to the halcyon days of just filming a glass full of glitter, this effect seems like a good replacement.
