Sokath! His eyes open!
I'm glad this makes sense to someone.
My friend's father is a professor of English, and he plays the "Darmok and Jalad" episode in one of his lectures, in order to study language and metaphor. Really, it's probably just a thinly veiled excuse to watch Star Trek. Fantastic episode though.
One freaking episode spawns the study of an imaginary language. It was a good episode, though.

It's been widely explained that Chekov was not a bridge officer during the first season of The Original Series, which is when the Space Seed episode took place. Khan met Chekov before he and his genetically enhanced crewmates were abandoned on Seti Alpha V, but it was not an on-camera moment. But the Darmok episode of Next Gen is one of my favorites. /even bigger Star Trek geek
Yes, I knew the tlhIngan Hol off the top of my head. I win.
Oh, and totally wicked link, KoKo! You too, Cali. And BlueHorse, that is a positively delicious turn of phrase.
...on Seti Alpha V...
Is there a relationship between this and Seti@Home?
