FarScape and Star Trek have essentially universal translators either through computer or microbes.

Can you imagine what life would be like talking to people?
It would constantly be a case of bad dubbing of a foreign movie.
Mouths moving in odd manner for words, old saying like Crichton uses, would be utterly baffling.
It would be like being stuck with 10,000 Yoda's but with bad dubbing.


Have you ever tried translating, literal translation, of one language to the next?
Let's take English to Spanish, the structure of sentences is completely different.
So while being bothered by the bad dubbing you are also trying to puzzle out what the hell they are trying to say.
Having learned Thai, or enough to get by, there are officially three versions of the language depending on gender or social status of the speaker alone.
That is just one planet now add in hundreds of thousands with odd structures and thought patterns that define meaning.


It would be enough to drive you to shoot first, and just keep shooting, from sheer madness.

This message has been brought to you by the caring, loving, Necromongers. We take your pain, lessen it, and make you into One People.
Everyone speaks the same, thinks the same, and follows the same beliefs.
Also don't much sleep apparently.

[NEC]MsLeFaye[N] - The Kinder Gentler Lord Marshall of Necromongers, we welcome all who wish harmony of thought, spirit, and unity in the UnderVerse.

But it would have been cool to talk to Moya, the living ship.

The TARDIS's ability is questionable at best, but never the less what is spoken is not what is heard, hence bad dubbing.
