That's what I mentioned other movies for. They're content to use smaller 
fonts, to break lines according to concepts as they occur in the native 
language. Heck, even the /Star Trek/ movies did just fine in that 
regard. "Captain Klaa, we have a target in sight. A probe of ancient 
origin." One subtitle. No problems whatsoever, and no one ever 
complained, as they do with /Discovery,/ that the subtitles go by too 
fast or that the Klingon is too slow.
