--> '''Jon:''' I know your people are brave; no one denies that. Six times in the last thousand years, a King-beyond-the-Wall has attacked the kingdoms; six times they failed. You don't have the discipline. You don't have the training. Your army is no army. You don't know how to fight together.

The new captain, Jellico, is essentially a {{Jerkass}} (though he's not without [[StrawmanHasAPoint valid points]]). His command vastly differs from Picard's, opting more for a military attitude and a "Get it done" approach. Jellico naturally butts heads with Riker and by Part 2, they really lay into each other.
