Corrected entry: Why do Picard and crew need to bother having the Baku walk all the way to the caves when the Enterprise could have easily beamed all of them to the caves in just a matter of minutes? Also if Picard and Data had already found the holoship and had complete control over it then why not just go ahead and use it for its intended purpose, transport the people to a safe location until the matter with So'na is over? At the very least the Baku would be safely out of the way and there would be no need to get to the caves.jbrbbt
Corrected entry: How does a race of people who never age and stay in sexual maturity for hundreds of years only manage to have a population of 600 people after being on the planet for 300 years?
Corrected entry: Picard has never had any relations with the So'na or its technology, yet he has no problem activating the self destruct sequence on the collector. The self-destruct would be the most well protected and difficult to access function on ANY vessel. Maybe with tools and a tricorder and some time, but Picard does it in about 4 minutes with his bare hands.jbrbbt
Corrected entry: In the scene where the Enterprise crew first enters the Baku village to resolve the hostage situation, Captain Picard says to Anish and Sojef, "These are my officers Dr. Crusher and Counselor Troi." When Picard says Dr. Crusher, Troi smiles, and when he says Counselor Troi, Crusher nods.
Corrected entry: Before DATA is reactivated, Gordi mentioned to the Captain that he removed and replaced some damaged memory engrams, yet when DATA is reactivated he says he's missing the memory engrams.
Corrected entry: They continue to show the effects of the radiation slowing the ageing of the planets' population and making the entire enterprise crew feel younger, and I believe there was a statement about old scars healing. Now that's fine enough but Geordi was born blind, as explained in one episode. He was not blinded in a accident or anything like that. Reverse ageing should have no effect on his eyes because he never had them in the first place so therefore nothing to regenerate.Spaceboy_007
Corrected entry: At a point about 13 minutes into the film you see a shot of Data's ship navigating around the ringed planet, just at the point where the Admiral, looking at the view screen, says "That's our ship". Assuming the ship to be approximately 50 feet in length (as can be seen by the subsequent shot), that would make the ringed planet no more than a quarter of a mile across at the very most. (It could be explained away by line-of-sight effect but it sure looks like the ship is going round and behind an incredibly tiny planet.).
Corrected entry: When Picard is persuading the Son'a soldier in the turbolift, the soldier has his weapon active, and there are several lights on the front, which turn off when he deactivates it. But when Ruafo is shooting at the holoship bridge, revealing it to be a holodeck, the lights on the front of his are all off. How could he be shooting if his weapon is inactive?
Corrected entry: Shortly after Picard realises that he feels younger, he has a meeting with Anij, his male friend, and the young boy. Picard jokes that the boy must be 78, and he responds that he is twelve. The boy's father then says the radiation won't affect him until he's quite a bit older. Yet earlier, when our heroes first beam down, the children are playing with 'remarkable' dexterity and coordination, which could only be the result of exposure to the radiation.
Corrected entry: When they reach the holoship they look up to the door when Data opens it. However as they are seen entering the ship from the inside they just step up to that same door. Later when Anij is thrown out she falls down about 2 or 3 meters, also visible when Data and Picard jump after her. The water level didn't drop that fast, did it?
Corrected entry: When the Enterprise is under attack by the Son'a, the Son'a fire a subspace weapon to open a dimensional tear in space. Geordi then says that the warp core is acting as a magnet, so they eject the core and blow it up to seal the tear. But then Geordi tells a bridge officer that the Son'a could do it again and they are "fresh out of warp cores". If however the warp core acts as a magnet to the subspace tear, a second similar attack by the Son'a would not affect the Enterprise because it is now without its warp-core.
Corrected entry: When Picard and Anij are marked and beamed aboard the Son'a ship, Picard still holds his phaser gun. But when he is with the Ba'ku in the 'prison room' it is gone. Are the Son'a transporters so selective that they can separate Picard and his weapon? With the gun he should have been able to cause some trouble aboard the ship.
Corrected entry: When Captain Picard and Data are in they holoship, they shoot one of the bad guys guarding the ship. He falls behind the fountain. When Picard orders the program to end, the bad guy is no longer there when the hologram disappears. Shouldn't his body still be there? It's doubtful that they would have made a holographic guard in the image of one of the close-to-death aliens.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Geordi and Picard discuss the possible reasons for Data's malfunction, Picard asks if it could be because of his emotion chip. Geordi replies with "He didn't take it with him". But in Star Trek Generations Picard's own log entry has him state "His (data's ) emotion chip has been fused into his neural net and can NOT be removed." In other words Data could not "not take it with him."
Corrected entry: When Data is about to enter the lake, the little boy whom Data frightened earlier in the film asks Picard how does Data breath underwater. Picard replies that Data doesn't breathe. This contradicts one of the series episodes when Data stated that he breathes to vent his internal heat buildup from his circuitry.
