Before joining the writing staff of Star Trek: Discovery, Joe Menosky wrote 67 episodes of The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, and Voyager. Perhaps the most beloved of those is "Darmok." The episode, from TNG Season 5, is about Picard's attempt to communicate with the captain of an alien species which speaks only in metaphor.

In this episode of Stage Nine, Mike and John record an audio commentary for "Darmok." We discuss how the episode is representative of Menosky's style, how it holds up on repeated viewings, and how awesome Picard's new jacket is.
