Is this a Star Trek reference or a Geek Test?

D'oh!

Seriously, sorry if things are not going well.

Star Trek.
Needed a break from report writing and figured I'd see if any fellow nerds would respond to the reference 😁

Life is seldom perfect, but I'm in a good headspace these days. No worry intended.

Though my heart is a bit broken over Ricky Jay.

? "Picard and Dathon at El-Adrel"

Try to remember congruent communication. Though a Greek chorus and interpretive dance can be entertaining too. Smile

A very memorable Next Generation episode. Paul Winfield was superb. Although the episodes had their differences, the Darmok episode brought to mind one from the original series - Arena - where Captain Kirk battles a Gorn.

I think they would both be disappointed in the location.

Steve Rogers mode... Smile I haven't seen the end of that movie yet. Back to Star Trek: Kirk on Regula 1

Too much ham? Smile

even better, the original Frederic Brown sci-fi short story on which it is based.

Brown's story has the "roller" creatures already engaged in a war. Star Trek moves the conflict onto moral grounds and also adds a third party deus ex metron Smile.

Also, the gimmick of Brown’s story was to get past the barrier, while the gimmick of the episode was to find the weapon that would bring down the Gorn.

Not to mention (without spoilers) the final resolution.

I still think the writers were inspired by that story. They even called the episode "Arena"

As did Desilu studios who addressed the matter with Brown directly.
