Emperor Georgiou: What's wrong? Are you scared, Number One? Where I'm from, there's a saying: "Scared Kelpien makes for tough Kelpien." Have you gotten tough since we served together on the Shenzhou, Mr. Saru?
Saru: Affirmative, Captain. Very tough. So much so that many find me simply unpalatable.

Captain Tardigrade vs Galaxy Quest Klingons
7 September 2018 | by dj-wookieSee all my reviews

I think this is a good standalone series,but i hope the next Picard series will be just a simple sequel to Voyager,because those new Klingons ,main characters and the uniforms from Discovery ore not very good,and the more experienced sci-fi fans know that thing.Discovery remains a fascinating and a revolting series in the same time.
