Star Trek: The Next Generation

The Battle - S1-E9

Corrected entry: When Picard is introducing his staff, he says that Data is 2nd in command, when in Fact Data is 3rd in command after Riker, after Picard.

Correction: He says Data is his "Second Officer" meaning he is next in the chain of command after Riker, who is the first officer.

The Battle - S1-E9

Corrected entry: Riker refers to Bok as captain, when in fact the commanding officer on a Ferengi vessel is Daimon.

Correction: True, but Daimon is the Ferengi equivalent of a Starfleet Captain.

The Battle - S1-E9

Corrected entry: Riker locks a tractor beam on the Stargazer with its shields up, even though it is established TNG-era tractor beams can't do that.

Correction: It has also been established that as time passes in the TNG universe, new technology allows them to overcome older technology. For example, they are unable to beam through shields, but in several episodes they manage to do it anyway because of inferior/flawed technology. Remember, the Stargazer is an old ship and its shield technology is outdated.

In the beginning of this episode, Riker orders Geordi (who was navigator at the time) to increase to Warp 6. In response, Geordi replies, "Aye sir, full impulse."



The cast really are very good friends. At LeVar Burton's wedding in 1992, the best man was Brent Spiner and the ushers were Patrick Stewart, Jonathan Frakes and Michael Dorn. And when Brent Spiner recorded an album (Ol' Yellow Eyes is Back), the backing groups listed as The Sunspots are again the male members of the bridge crew.
