Oh sure, Send a Chinese named ship to start an inter-stellar war due to its Asian sunzi quoting captain making strategic and just wrongs decisions. I don’t think Georgio is performed at Picard’s level, but Picard had 7 years to settle into his seat.
It may be due to my aging but I do not sense an exhilaration from watching this… what happened to me? So much action, so much new cultural issues, civil union and disunion, ancient artifacts, mentors, red shirts, a Human with Vulcan training, omg, maybe I’ve just been overloaded with too many cool trekie things, erg or I’m getting old…, This doesn’t excite me any more 😦
If Picard was on the bridge, and says “wow” in blank awe at the sight of that Klingon beacon, that would be a scene to remember.
Another thought as I watch the After Trek, “we have engaged the borg” has strong connotation of lengthy entanglement due to the recent experience at time of speech. Where as the use of “we have engaged the Kilogons” is a little premature, a skirmish at best, not an engagement and not as much meaning. Meaning! Meaning!! Meaning!!! This Trek is so blend in meaning.
And the Klingon sound like they have accents compared to TNG Klingons. The scene is too operatic imho.
Hope to see gerogio revived later and becomes Klingon admiral to cause the federation more headaches.
