Watching the classic @startrek episode "Darmok" on my lunch break, where the Enterprise encounter a civilisation who communicate only in inpenetrable memes. Enterprise crew discuss how frustrating this is, then instruct a shuttle pilot to do "evasive manouever sequence delta"… an inpenetrable meme known only to Starfleet crew…

@JackDeeth @startrek but imagine if the command for a manœuvre was like, "Kirk and Khan at the Nebula" or "Data, when the Borg fell"
