Loud as a Whisper - S2-E5

Trivia: Closed captioning, in its infancy in the 80s, often dropped words and letters by accident. In the original broadcast of this episode, the captioning of Riva's line, "We could dine together," lost an N, resulting in a rather bizarre exchange. Riva: We could die together. Troi: I'd like that.

Starship Mine - S6-E18

Trivia: 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 what appears to be a Vulcan nerve pinch (although in the script it is referred to as a "carotid artery block"), 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.

Relics - S6-E4

Trivia: In the Holodeck, you see Scotty's right hand open on the glass and later on the bottle. It can be seen that his middle finger is missing. James Doohan kept his hand closed most of the time on screen because he lost it in World Was II.

The Neutral Zone - S1-E26

Trivia: As Clara talks with Troi, a silver colored model of a Constitution class starship with reversed nacelles is seen on the shelf behind her.

Movie Nut

Trivia: During the series, a number of times the shot of the Enterprise moving toward the destination at Impulse power is re-used, and there is a figure moving from left to right along the Conference room windows. According to the LCARSCom.net website, the figure in question is Captain Picard.

We'll Always Have Paris - S1-E24

Trivia: The triangular shelf unit that Picard walks by entering the simulation appears in Kirk's apartment in Star Trek II and III.

Movie Nut

Silicon Avatar - S5-E4

Trivia: As Data and Dr. Marr wait for the turbolift, the dark panel on the right side of the door reads "ACCESS DENIED." No other time does this appear.

Movie Nut

Hide and Q - S1-E10

Trivia: In this episode, as Picard talks to Riker about the Q power, he walks around his desk. As he does, a model of the Enterprise A can be seen by the wall. In later episodes, the model is of the Stargazer.

The Best of Both Worlds (2) - S4-E1

Trivia: When the Enterprise is travelling through the debris field, one of parts it goes past resembles the secondary, or bottom part, of the Enterprise A.

Movie Nut

Allegiance - S3-E18

Trivia: In this episode, the stripe on Picard's door is light purple. Usually, the info stripes are brown with white lettering. Also, you see that Picard's quarters are on Deck 9, and has a view of space, whereas Kirk's cabin was further inside, with no windows. This was a means of protecting him from attack.

Movie Nut

Chain of Command (2) - S6-E11

Trivia: Captain Jellico holds the distinction of being the show's only guest star to record a captain's log entry while in command of the Enterprise.

Captain's Holiday - S3-E19

Trivia: In addition to playing Lt. Worf, Michael Dorn appears very briefly, without makeup, as a tourist on Risa.

The Icarus Factor - S2-E14

Trivia: John Tesh, the host of Entertainment Tonight at the time, makes a cameo as one of the Klingons in Worf's Ascension ceremony.

Cubs Fan

The Royale - S2-E12

Trivia: When Captain Picard is reading Hotel Royale in his ready room, he comments that the book's first line, 'it was a dark and stormy night', is "not a promising beginning". This line is actually the first line of Edward Bulwer-Lytton's Paul Clifford; the line has become so clich├ęd that it frequently appears in satirical works to denote humorously incompetent or overly melodramatic writing.

Descent (1) - S6-E26

Trivia: Stephen Hawking guest stars in this episode, playing himself as a holodeck character (The "Poker with Einstein" program). This came about when he visited Paramount Pictures to promote "A Brief History of Time", and then told the Paramount people that he had always wanted to visit the Enterprise. He not only got to visit, but the writers added this special scene just so professor Hawking could appear on screen in a Star Trek episode. Hawking also reportedly stopped by the warp engine, smiled and said "I'm working on that".

The Ensigns of Command - S3-E2

Trivia: Due to a noisy aqueduct on the set, they had to go back and overdub virtually all of the dialogue in the pumping station scenes on the planet's surface. This is most apparent with the character of colony leader Gosheven, who was portrayed by guest actor Grainger Hines. After filming was completed, a schedule conflict prevented Hines from participating in the overdubbing sessions, so another actor rather mechanically voiced Gosheven's lines. The incongruous overdub was so obvious and so unflattering to Grainger Hines that he requested his name be dropped from the episode credits, and so it was.
