Re: They teach Latin at Starfleet Academy?
The universal translater had no trouble working on the Companion. Her contexts would be even ore alien than in Darmok. Spock did have to tweak it a bit but he did so with the basic tools found on the shuttlecraft. It's not like he needed the ship's computer. It even picked up on the gender of an energy being. Quite a trick.
