Star Trek: The Next Generation

Cause and Effect - S5-E18

Corrected entry: When Riker suggests blowing open the cargo bay to avoid the other ship, his lips don't move.

Correction: Riker suggests this three times, and all three times his lips move just fine. It is hard to see the first time because of the distance between him and the camera, but his mouth is moving as it should.


Cause and Effect - S5-E18

Corrected entry: Every time Data suggests using the tractor beam to alter the other ship's course, Picard immediately says, "Make it so," and Worf immediately engages it. The final time that they go through the time loop, however, Data has a good 8-10 seconds, after making his initial suggestion, to realize that Riker's strategy is better. Why did Picard and Worf hesitate so long this time?

Matty Blast

Correction: In each sequence but the last, the scene quickly cuts to the Bozeman hitting the nacelle, but in the last loop, the camera stays on the bridge. One can assume that when the camera cut to the collision, it skipped that 8-10 seconds it took to activate the tractor beam. (Also, all main systems went down, so they back-up tractor beam may have taken extra time).
