    Summary

    Garak has given Julian a book, and he doesn't like it. This is all standard procedure, except for the fact that Julian's not entirely sure if Garak likes it either. Upon further examination of the author, Julian finds a startling lack of information, which leads him to believe Garak might be trying to tell him something.

    Summary

    Language is among Julian’s favorite pursuits, up there with tennis and medicine. Its combination of art and science and history and even math pulled him right in—an interdisciplinary craft, endless in measure. Linguistics was his favorite elective during Starfleet and xenolinguistics even more so.

    This comes in very handy when the Universal Translators cut out. What can Julian say when no one understands him? (And what can he say when they do?)

    Summary

    Nadir’s body of work has been examined before—and in much broader and deeper contexts than this blog!—most notably in 24 Hours to Live, the collection of essays edited by Rachel Baxter, and his own What I Thought About the Movies I Made: The Abed Nadir Story—but for those of you already saying tl;dr, here’s an abbreviated summation of how auteur theory lets us realize the true brilliance of Nadir’s filmmaking.
