It was a TNG episode where the aliens only talked in metaphores.  "Shaka, when the walls fell" is about a great failure.
 
It was a really cool episode, so long as you didn't think about it.  Like...how do you teach the metaphores if you can't tell the stories behind them?

With metaphors.

Or how Picard was able to communicate back to the alien crew using exactly the same metaphors the alien captain used to him. Shit, it's been what, 18 years since that episode and I still remember it.

Great ref though Mont.
