You mean the bad guy, being so obvious parody of Donald Trump that only thing missing was that he didn't have an orange tribble on his head.
Honestly part before the govermental building was decent enough as it wasn't really specific to USA and "could be anywhere" so to speak, but the minister of defense being a) irredeemble xenophobic jerk that made you wonder if the Tzenkethi bombed the wrong target b) clearly meant to repesent Trump was big minus point for me, had they employd even a tiny speck of sudtlety I probably would been ok with the mission nothing ground breaking but decent enough. Trump is not a nice person I get that but what fuck am I suppose to do about, it's not like the finnish defense force could invade Washington DC even if they wanted to (and obviously they don't want to).
in many ways I consider New Kentar and that Kentari was big wasted opportunity, they could have made a semi-decent story of the kentari being trapped in traditions and too afraid of change (kind of like ST6) that they were slowly killing themselves, instead we got a mission that combinied all the worst aspects of trek trying to do "Message shows" with a cartoony bad guy and childlishly simple moral.
