That will be the day

ST: TNG's "Yesterday's Enterprise" suggests there is something to the notion it takes until season three to get your story in stride.

The Enterprise-D encounters a rift in space-time while on a routine mission. As they monitor the anomaly, the heavily damaged USS Enterprise-C, a ship believed destroyed more than two decades earlier, emerges. At that occurrence, the Enterprise-D undergoes a sudden and radical change: it is now a warship and the Federation is at war with the Klingons.

Watching it again, it scared the hell out of me. Something profoundly unsettling. The technical term for the feeling is "Das Unheimliche."
