    Hey guys, an excellent episode and some brilliant bloopers too.

    I’d like to learn Romulan. Like the us Brits have dozens of words for rain, and the Scandinavian people have so many words for different types of snow, I would reckon the Romulan language probably has hundreds of words for assassination (political or otherwise), and that’d be cool.

    Luv’n’hugs!

    Any Language? Why Klingon of course. Klingon is to star trek what Huttese is to Star Wars. Iconic and a legitamate langauge (Seriously there are masters of the Hutese in RL as there are Klingon).

    Everything i would say, has already been said by Berthulf. Excellent bloopers, interesting content/links. I would certainly learn Romulan.

    I don’t think there are any other properly fleshed out languages in Trek besides Klingon, right? I mean, there are some words in Romulan, a couple in Vulcan, maybe Ferengi, but that’s about it. If we’re talking about Trek languages that don’t already exist…maybe Tribble? Although I’d imagine that the only words and phrases necessary for that would be “Eat”, “Procreate”, and “Look out, there’s a Klingon!” 🙂

    Regarding what that one CBS’ exec said, as tone death as it sounded, I’m not convinced that it’s entirely evil and moneygrubbing. (Some of it definitely is, but not all of it.) I think the point of that whole thing is that rather than the old system where making every show is kind of a shot in the dark whether enough people watch it, and the only feedback you get is from that one ratings group (with lots of intrinsic biases) and the folks who actually bother to send in hate mail, All Access actually gives the folks at CBS better information about who’s watching and what they’re interested in, how fast they’re tuning out after some particularly ‘ugh’ moment in a show, etc. That in turn theoretically allows them to make better shows, shows that the folks subscribing actually want to watch, and not just the same bland formulaic fare that usually shows up on regular TV.
