I liked both episodes a lot , the second a little more than the first. I did have some issues with the storytelling and the pacing of some scenes, I don't much care for the Batman-style "tilt screen" camera work that makes scenes appear as if the Penguin and his henchmen are about to walk into the room and issue demands. The Klingons...meh at best. But solid episodes for the most part. They kept my attention even if some of the dialogue wasn't very good. Trek is synonymous with awkward dialogue so that didn't really surprise me, plus the sound design featuring classic TOS-era sound effects was very pleasing to this aging fan's ear. Good show. Could have been better, but...eh. I liked it.
