Trek News & Views 91: Shaka / by Trek fm

Darmok.

This week Colin has been captured and placed on a planet with not one but two guests to discuss the legendary TNG episode “Darmok.” For once we pretty much stay on topic on Trek News & Views as we discuss the challenges of trying to talk to someone when the universal translator is taking the day off. We heap praise on the actors and also delve into the comparisons between the situation Picard finds himself in and the how language varies greatly here on our own planet. Finally, we talk about the different incarnations of Star Trek, our views on the movies—old and new—and cover a bit of recent Star Trek news.
