How could translators possibly know what is a proper noun and what isn’t in an alien language?

Weird, somehow I’ve never heard of this species or seen one in another Star Trek series. From a cursory internet search that might be because I’ve never seen Star Trek: the Animated Series.

A big part of science fiction is how fictional technology and environments of the future that would seem very strange to us are completely normal to them. I agree that this should also extend to society itself and its speculative future progress. In the same sense that a character wouldn’t find a replicator to be strange technology it wouldn’t make sense to treat someones sexual orientation or gender to be strange if it is a social issue that was supposedly a thing of the distant past. I find that a lot of 21st century social issues seem to find their way into modern Star Trek in ways that don’t make a lot of sense.

It will be interesting to see how bad they botch Three Body Problems US adaptation.

I’d like to know what the game even is. Is it necessary for the 3 screens to be rotating at all times? Perhaps that is just part of the challenge.

The weird 6 layer chess they have is just as baffling.

Edit: I did find this page though that explains it in great detail. meder.spacechess.org/3dschach/chess3d.htm
