It's a fascinating take on the Mandarin switch, particularly in regards to xenophobia... of which I think Star Trek Into Darkness was an unintentional vehicle. From the Unga Bunga aliens who drop their scroll to worship the Enterprise, to the pierced Klingons and white-washed Khan... Star Trek historically has tackled xenophobia instead of casually rebranding it. IM3 took a very different angle regarding a very xenophobic character and defied expectations in the process. They delivered an entertaining Un-Cola, and should be applauded for it. It was almost high level trolling imo.
