Plus Kirk seems awfully combative right off the bat, for no real reason.
Kargh is apparently their "go-to" Klingon, and that's not a bad thing. William Campbell was supposed to pay a recurring character in Classic Trek.

And yeah, Kirk is combative -- but then, he's going deep into Klingon territory and finds out he'll be betrayed by the Kitumba as well.

Koloth was supposed to be recurring. Would've been fun.

I'm glad they never went for that "regular nemesis" idea...Bob Justman was right in that it makes the world seem too small.

I've been waiting for Kitumba, and, yes, I was also bored in the middle - I thought it was just me.

Re: Star Trek Phase II - Kitumba

This was pretty top notch with the look of this one. It's not the top level that we've seen from P2/NV people in the past. But it's not far below them. The visuals of the Klingon home world overall are fantastic. Star Trek's actually Klingon visits or Klingon episodes weren't this good visually. The story did drag a bit in the 2nd half, but it was well written enough to keep me interested. I can see some people getting bored because really not much happened after the Enterprise got to the Q'ono's. But I liked the way they presented Q'ono's enough.

Re: Star Trek Phase II - Kitumba

This has got to be the most impressive episode of Phase II that I've yet seen. The general effects, the eclectic variety of costumes, the CGI backdrops, the Enterprise....all of it was absolutely top-notch, and I really enjoyed seeing Kargh again. It took me a while to acclimate myself to Cawley's take on Kirk (even for TOS-era James Tiberius Kirk he was over-the-top....lol) but by this point I've gotten used to his performance and enjoy it.

The tips of the hat to Enterprise with "President Archer" and the Augment virus as well as to other branches of the franchise were a lot of fun and the episode made me wish we'd gotten a canon look at central planets of the Klingon Empire during the run of the original series. I won't lie, I was a latecomer to the fan-made shows like this and New Voyages and a very reluctant one at that, but I'm liking what I've been seeing.

Loving those myriad 23rd century Klingon warships with all the intricate hull detailing. Great episode. Just great.

I finally had a chance to watch the episode last night and have written my review, posted in the other thread here.
