Nothing wrong with that but I think it is even better to reappropriate words like patriotism and honour from people who drew them through the mud. To remain within Trek, Kirk is the proper patriot, not Marcus. A guy who kills his own people has no right to use any of these words.
The advantage of this is that the enemy cannot play the "look at these dishonourable scumbags who do not love their country" game, i.e. you do not surrender any (ideological) territory to them.
