Received my Discs yesterday - and have to say I agree with most of the above (and interesting to see I wasn't the only one thinking the Galantean protagonists gave off a 'Klingon' vibe - especially other the ship captain when he said: "There's no honor in this battle..."; hell, I was waiting for a subtitle to read "Today is a good day to die.".) Overall I enjoyed the film, but for me the whole 'Hotel Yamato' was way too long and drawn out - and IMO hurt the pacing of the film - YMMV. I also enjoy that they keep adding some twists with the reference to an ancient race that built the World of Tranquility and the Warp Gate that was under Gamilas control in the series. I'm hoping it means they plan to do more with this SBY 2199 continuity - and we'll see a full remake of the Comet Empire and Bolar War storylines (and since the planet in the original Bolar Wars story was named 'Aquarius' - I can only think of the 'Aquarian Race' reference in this film as some foreshadowing (hopefully) on their part of things to come.) Well see I guess - but I hope for an announcement of more soon.
