In my opinion Darmok was one of the best TGN episodes.

Darmok is one of the few TNG episodes I have not seen yet.

I shall rectify this shortly.
Iconian? A label created by the Dewans to give voice to their destruction.
In the end, what they chose to call us is irrelevant.

It's a good episode, especially compared to season 1 and some of the season 7 eps.

I liked that episode too. I thought it was kind of a clever *ahem* metaphor for the fact that despite linguistic barriers, people can still find common cause and understanding with one another.

Darmok is one of the good episodes sandwiched between all of the mediocre to bad episodes.

MMOs aren't charities. Corporations are supposed to make a profit. It's what they do.

It had some cheesy lines, but Darmok is one of my favorite episodes.

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.

who cares about what one site thinks, they cause a stink to get themselves noticed rather then voting honestly on the tng episode. the issue of language barrier hasnt really been explored in depth within trek, tng and enterprise managed it, but not to the point that it could creating an "incident".

"Communication is a matter of patience and imagination."

I thought it was a good episode.
