Corrected entry: As a non-corporeal entity enters and damages the ship's electronic systems, it causes the ship's engines to shut down. The ship, traveling at Warp 6, slows down and stops when the engines are shut down. However, in reality, ships in space only need the engines to get up to speed. Inertia will allow the ship to continue without the engines "pushing" the ship, because in space there is no friction to slow the ship when the engines shut down. The ship would continue on its current course at its current speed when the engines fail. Even if the warp field collapsed they wouldn't stop entirely.MissTCShore
Corrected entry: An aged, white haired Samuel Clemens angrily accuses Data and Guinan of introducing future technology that will corrupt the late 19th Century, and he threatens to expose them to the authorities. The elderly Clemens is thus portrayed as extremely paranoid of future technology. In reality, even before his old age, Samuel Clemens LOVED new technology, the more exotic, the better. In real life, Sam Clemens owned one of the very first telephones and the first typewriters, and he appeared in a Thomas Edison film when moving pictures were still in their infancy. In real life, Clemens was also a personal friend of Nikola Tesla, and he was known to visit the inventor's laboratory to marvel at all the truly futuristic technological wonders.
Corrected entry: Didn't Geordi die? When he goes into neural shock and Troi removes his arm-band, he becomes part of the frozen time. What happens when that time moves in reverse? Also, I don't think they ever talk about getting him some medical assistance before the Romulan ship disappears? But he's back in the next episode.
Corrected entry: In the scene with the rotting fruit, it would be impossible for the fruit to age as shown. The problem is, in order for the fruit to rot, oxygen would have to supply the needed nutrients to microrganisms in the fruit that cause it to rot at the accelerated rate. Since the life support generator is in normal time, being away from the bowl of fruit, there is no way the fruit could have rotted like that - the generator is only supplying a normal-time-continuum's worth of oxygen. There is no evidence of any wind or vortex so the air cannot be entering the time bubble at a greater rate than it is being created.Rlvlk
Corrected entry: When Tasha Yar and company first exit Ten Forward in the alternate timeline, watch through the doors as they open. An extra can be seen stood still in midstride in the passageway, before nervously noticing that the doors have already opened and that she has missed her cue to begin walking past. She then begins purposefully marching down the passage.
Corrected entry: When Picard returns to the Paxxan planet, Data begins to replay the incidents that led to the "lost day". During the narrative that Data gives, he explains that Captain Picard asked the Paxxan representative, who is using Counselor Troi's body to communicate, who (meaning what species) they belonged to. The alien possessing counselor Troi never answers this question. Instead the alien informs Picard that because the Enterprise crew is aware of the Paxxans (who are xenophobes and isolationists) and the ship and its occupants must be destroyed. Picard asks the alien to allow the Enterprise safe passage through their space, and to erase the entire crew's memory of the incident, however the Paxxan representative says that Data is immune to their technology to erase memories (which would have been required in order for the plan to work). Captain Picard says to Data, "You will conceal your knowledge of the Paxxans for as long as you exist". However the species was never identified. This happens in the last 6 minutes of the episode.Fllopez32
Corrected entry: When the head Bringloidi starts a fire in the hold, Lt. Worf informs him that a force field will cover the fire until it is extinguished. But in many later episodes you see fires burning, and nothing happens. At most, they will let the air out of the room, but no force fields.Richard Welty
Corrected entry: Near the beginning of the episode, when Geordi and Suzanna are in Ten-Forward, Geordi's rank insignia switches from the two-and-a-half pips of a Lieutenant-Commander to the three pips of a Commander. Geordi is then called to the bridge, and when he gets there he is wearing Lieutenant-Commander's pips again.
Corrected entry: In the beginning of the episode, when they show the "previously on Star Trek: The Next Generation" segment, the Enterprise is shown at the abandoned shipyard, destroying the weapons transport ship instantly with a phaser blast. In the previous episode, the Enterprise only damaged the ship. The ship exploded a short time later due to the weapons it was carrying.wizard_of_gore
Corrected entry: In the beginning of the episode after the explosion, Dr Crusher wants to stay and tend to the wounded despite the danger of further explosions/terrorist attacks. Picard, Data, and Worf all tell her to go back to the Enterprise but she refuses. This leaves a perfect opportunity for her to be kidnapped. If she had just beamed the five or six wounded people injured people to the Enterprise sickbay, she would not only have removed herself from danger but also have taken the wounded to a state-of-the-art medical facility instead of feeling around for broken bones and telling them not to worry about the gaping bloody holes in their bodies.bigdisappointment
