Enterprising Individuals is back for an all-new season of missions! First up, we explore the vagaries of first contact with the quintessential Next Generation episode, Darmok! Join us for a look at this inside-baseball show, as we talk the Sapir-Whorf Hypothesis, firing your wife as your “agent”, just how exactly Tamarian kids learn their language without the help of Memory Alpha, and whether or not the Children of Tama are Space 4chan! Plus, we discuss Data getting counseling, the importance of your Wire DVDs in intergalactic cultural exchange, and we feature the first guest commentator to nail a 25 word synopsis EXACTLY!
Alan’s work is available on Amazon and check out his website at www.alangratz.com!
