darmok and jalad at tanagra


good hand acting

symbolist prose that the powdered man (data) cannot understand

werther’s original face

picard creates a mythology on this planet, El-Adrel.


Captain Dathon succumbs to the beast, at campfire, he is a very sad potatoe indeed!


The Tamarians look for reconciliation- “Darmok and Jalad on the ocean”.  You see, on the planet, Picard’s embedded universal translator was  creating a sound-field of English around him, so the grammar and the syntax was translated, but he did not understand the Tamarian communication, which is based on mythological archetypes.  This is the leap of learning he made, there on the surface of El-Adrel.  The Tamarian ship yields its massive power to their new friends, The Federation.
