Seconded, it looks great but it doesn't lose the vibe of the original.

Thirded - Gamma's proposals nail the nostalgia of retail, and the May 8 variant adds extra detail to feel fresh.
However, I agree with AV8R. The bright center needs to encompass the ship's furthest edges.

The older spinning subspace animation that was in use for so long had a much larger white aperture that allowed any ship passing through to have all of the outer parts ship appear/disappear into the white "hole" in space which visually made more sense.

I agree. I like the new animation (although I would prefer an option to choose between the current and new animations), but I believe it needs a larger central aperture. The current animation has a large blindingly-white center which makes it look like the ships are actually exiting or entering a portal, whereas the current one feels more like a homeworld-ish effect where the ship just materializes out of a 2D plane.

The new effect with the current effect's white center would be perfect for me personally.

Colonol Dekker:
100% agree

Looks pretty good! Reminds me of the wormhole in Deep Space Nine
