I'm with Finn on this one. It's just one Federation ship firing on another, and there's no context at all without knowing the history behind the image. Subtle lighting does not a beast make.
Hold on! are there any Star Trek
fans on this board who don't get the context here?
This is like stumbling into a catholic church and seeing a sculpture of some lanky sad looking dude on a cross and asking for the context.
Really? We get it.
