Other mistake: When Tallinn dies, not only she is killed through a neurotoxin made in 2024 by a human, for humans, through a patch that the killer carelessly touches himself (we have to be generous and assume he developed some antidote to it) and somehow they can't cure with their advanced tech, but her eyes become bloodshot with visible red blood vessels. Romulan blood is green.
Continuity mistake: When Lieutenant Narissa Rizzo appears in holo form in the last scene of the episode, the two pins of her rank on her right breast initially are attached together (as if the two magnets have been placed too close together and ended up being pulled to one another). During the first part of the scene they go back and forth between being joined and separated. (00:40:45)
Trivia: The planet that the Riker family settles on is called Nepenthe. A magical potion mentioned in Edgar Allen Poe's "The Raven," originally from "The Odyssey," with the power to cure grief and sorrow. A fitting name for a place to try to forget the loss of a child.
Question: How do the "door transporters" outside Starfleet work? People just seem to walk straight into them and vanish, a) faster than normal transporters, and b) without any indication they're controlling where they're going. There's no sign saying where each door connects to, are people just hoping for the best?
