I was so put off by the civil war the first time I saw it that I hated it. Not the possibly ridiculous Q civil war but the use of yet another overused American history motif. Couldn't Q have picked a scene from the WWIII?
I remember in DS9 when they did the Bell Riots. Fictional history ftw.
BUT with multiple subsequent viewings I barely notice those parts because there are other hilarious things going on.
