Domarc do Darmac?
From: Marc Thomas
Hi TrekTV Friends,
Wow. 2016, that was a while ago right? What happend back then? The film Arrival, that's what. Based on a Ted Chiang's short "Story of Yer Life" What that's got to do with Trek? This... Sci Linguistics FI!!! When that movie came out I rememeber thinking "Wow I can't for tTV to cover 'Darmock', hope I live till then." Well I did. I have met my personal longevity goals and feel, now do I, free to resume my diet of candy, narcotics and briney fat. Poutine with bacon? Si si Por favor!
Jared summed it up perfectly. Darmock is, in and of itself,a metaphor for an episode about language. It's Trek biting off more than it can chew which is what it does best and should do. It's probably nearly impossible to accurately show how Earthlife could get FTL then galavant around space-time making friends and enemies but Trek tries anyway which is what I love about it. Frankly it's why the special effects never matter'd much to me. Weather it's TOS, TNG or the Paramount Plus Stuff, none o' this is what it'd look like, but I don't care. What matters is that we think about it, think about the reality that the universe is big, and the possibility that we are not the only thing thinking about it.
