Star Trek: The Next Generation

Who Watches The Watchers - S3-E4

Corrected entry: Picard decided to beam the leader of the village to the Enterprise. While on the bridge, he orders Data to beam her directly to transporter room one as soon as she is alone. Picard goes to the transporter room, tells the crewman he will handle this himself, and then proceeds to beam her up without notifying Data not to do so.

Correction: He commed Data while en route to the Transporter Room.

Who Watches The Watchers - S3-E4

Corrected entry: Supposedly the model in Picard's ready room is of the Stargazer, NCC-2893. But in a closeup when he is talking to Nuria, the model number shown is NCC-7100.

Correction: Incorrect. At no time in the series was the miniature specifically referred to as the Stargazer. It is, however, a model of the same class of starship as the Stargazer, and since the miniature sits in Picard's ready-room, folks assume it is the Stargazer. Its registry indicates, however, that it is another ship entirely. Perhaps Picard came upon this model by chance, and because it is the same class as his old ship, he keeps it as a memento of his time there.


Who Watches The Watchers - S3-E4

Corrected entry: The Mintakans are stated to be at Bronze Age level of technology. However, while Riker is escaping with the injured Palmer, the pursuing Mintakan is carrying a 20th-century compound bow (a bow with pulleys). It is simply not possible to make a compound bow with Bronze Age technology.

Correction: Pulleys can be made of wood. The strength\flexibility of the alien wood is unknown. I see no connection between bronze age and a compound bow. Just because no one on Earth had one in the bronze age doesn't mean every single species in the universe is incapable of making one.

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.
