Star Trek has never shied away from taking advantage of the power of words, from Shakespeare to technobabble to inspirational speeches, and The Next generation is no exception. There have been many moments and episodes that have pushed our vocabulary, introduced us to works of literature, and taught us something new in the process.

In this episode of Earl Grey, hosts Joe Keegan and Justin Oser are joined by guest Shoaib Mirza, Associate Producer of The Edge, to list their three favorite uses of words, language, and communication on The Next Generation. Each participant talks about why the moments discussed are meaningful to them and important to The Next Generation.
