I always wonder about languages. I posted on another board with a question about how John knew how to spell T`rallt`ixx but have heard no theories. Do translator microbes translate text, too? Or is there some kind of intergalactic Swahili that they all write? If microbes only handle speech, then John is illiterate, and with all those races, no one could know more than 20 or so written languages. Hey, U`boo!29th March 2002 at 6:17 am #59008AnonymousGuest
You are, of course assuming he got the spelling right. He could just have taken the sounds and spelt out as English would have, in a similar way that English takes sounds of foreign words and names and spells out the syllables.

There’s conflicting info. In the episode where Crichton (on Talyn) is showing Aeryn his star charts, he is reading the names to her. I can’t tell if they’re written down, but I’m guessing they are. So one for “microbes don’t translate” or maybe “Aeryn can’t read John’s handwriting.”
In all the scenes w/ Crichton working with the PK science officer, he seems to be dealing with Sebacean terminals, notes, etc. So either “microbes do translate,” or “Crichton has learned Sebacean.”
Myself, I lean towards the idea that John has learned Sebacean. He’s a pretty bright guy.
