Also in my top 10.
Pesky universal translators...
This episode came up in a class I took in Classics of Greek literature. The teacher was discussing the Iliad (naturally) and the epics of Marduk as examples of first-order stories that served as cultural building blocks. She said "It's a lot like that one episode of Star Trek..."

I have used that one in my college classes so many times that I have the entire thing memorized. His only friend....
i once got laid using the lines from that episode. seriously. geek days!
That is one of the GREATEST hours of TV.
This is one of my favorite scenes of all time. Thank you for posting this - I've been looking for it forever!
Certainly one of the best.
This was a good episode, make one think (which is very dangerous).
Total Enemy Mine ripoff. That's right, I'm saying it!
Go back a bit farther, DougSF. This the umpteenth de-gayed version of Gilgamesh, one of the oldest stories in literature.
Isn't it in everyone's top 10?
his sails unfurled, baby. Definitely among the greats.
Slog Commenters, their arms wide!
I was just thinking about this episode the other day believe it or not. Thanks for posting.
Temba, his arms wide.
My favorite episode. Thank you.
One day - when they do a reunion show - I hope they address Picard's PTSD.
One of my favorites as well. Zokath, his face black, his eyes red!

This is better:
wow for all you bible haters out there not one of you said you were offended by the lines.
...which in turn is a complete rip-off of "Robinson Crusoe On Mars", which is of course a sci-fi'ed rip-off of Dumas, which is - oh hell, what @11 said.
Darmok and Gilad at Tenagra, one of the best. Nerds unite!
