Commander William T. Riker: In your position it's important to ask yourself one question: what would Picard do?
Wesley Crusher: He'd listen to everyone's opinion and then make his own decision.
Early on in the episode, just after Picard realises what the terrorists are up to. He fights and disables one of the terrorists, a human played by Tim Russ, using a Vulcan Nerve Pinch, which he learned from Sarek in an earlier episode. It's ironic that Tim Russ would later go on to play the Vulcan Lt. Tuvok on Voyager, and use that very same move on many an occasion. See more...

Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987) - 3 mistakes in "Skin of Evil"
Continuity: When the away team encounters the evil oily blob thing, it makes their equipment fly away. Later they have apparently recovered it. But strange things keep happening to Geordi's weapon: when he and the others run forward to rescue Riker, Geordi accidentally drops it in the black pool when he stops abruptly. Admittedly, you can't prove that's a mistake even though it has no purpose in the story. But shortly afterwards the phaser is back on Geordi's belt, clean. Did the sticky, malicious, bullying blob give it back just like that? (People often try and find justifications for mistakes, but in this case, wishful thinking can only give us an extremely unlikely explanation.)
