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.

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.
