I can't fault TMP too much though it did give us:

*Ridge-headed Klingons. (note, I'm not saying bumpy... those came later)
*Deltans, aka the prototype Betans/Betazoids.
*Tranporter accidents, in gory detail.
*Rand as transporter chief.
*Deforest Kelly's beard.
*Jerry Goldsmith's theme music.
*The return of the landing party jackets
*More split-diopter camera shots per minute of screen time than any other film before or since.
*A sense of scale to both the Enterprise and the things around it. The film really communicates just how massive Vger is in a very un-STAR TREK like fashion. There's also a great sense of ship speed, you don't normally get a feel for how fast even impulse power is.
