Re: "Darmok" vs "Trials and Tribble-ations" better Trek trib
au contraire, I meant to Trek, not just to TOS.
I guess what I'm trying to get at in this comparison is to see what we value more as Trek fans: nostalgia for things past or exploration of human questions in a dramatic format.
Star Trek XI seems to have answered my question, though.
