One thing I won't miss about Deep Space Nine...
am 29. Juni 1999
I guess I can live without the best Trek out of the four, if it means the Breen are history too. Those guys give me the creeps. Especially the way they talk. I guess I've gotten used to the basic premise of "Trek linguistics"--that aliens all talk perfect English while the humans talk funny. Like in the original series ("Keptin, another wessel ees following us.", "But Captain, me puir engines cannae take any morrrr!" as well as the Next Generation (the generic Med-basin accent of Counselor Troi, all the more charming as delivered in her warm, soft-spoken voice, and of course the resonant Shakespearean tones of Picard which match his Roman coin looks), and finally, Deep Space Nine (with a chief engineer who talks like the Irish cop on the beat and a doctor who talks like Bond...James Bond). But all the aliens--Klingon, Romulan, Cardassian, Vorta, Ferengi, Jem Hadar, the Founders--all talk like network TV news reporters. Except for the Breen--they say stuff like "rowrbazzle", "sladle-slaitch and "squarkbool"--but Damar, the Female Founder and Weyoun can understand every word. I tried to find out what they were saying by rewinding the tape and kicking in the closed captioning. Know what that says? "Electronic Speech". Gee, thanks.
