Star Trek: The Next Generation

The Next Phase - S5-E24

Corrected entry: Ensign Ro and Geordi are invisible and are able to pass through solid objects; they can not physically touch anything. Yet when Ro visits her piloting station, she touches the console without her hand going through it.

Correction: She doesn't touch the console, she merely brushes her hand along it as if to touch it.

JC Fernandez

Correction: We have to assume that Ro was correct about the incident. Therefore, Picard made a mistake.

The Next Phase - S5-E24

Corrected entry: In the episode "The Next Phase" Geordi & Ro are made intangible through contact with an experimental shield generator. They pass through all solid objects but for some reason are still able to stand on the decks of the ship. On several occasions they & the Romulan in the same situation pass through the walls but not the floors of the Enterprise. Can't be the gravity generators or they'd be pulled through the floor of upper decks.

Correction: This has been submitted and corrected before. If Geordi and Ro are breaking several laws of physics by walking through walls and being invisible, why can't the thing about not falling through the floor be another law they're breaking? Also, they are "cloaked," and when Romulan ships are cloaked, the crewmembers don't fall through floors.

The Royale - S2-E12

Factual error: 30 seconds in Geordi says: 'surface temperature -291 degrees Celsius'. (The scale only goes down to -273.15 which is absolute zero). (00:00:30)

Trivia: 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.

Skin of Evil - S1-E23

Question: Near the end when they are in the holodeck for the memorial ceremony for Lt. Yar, Dr. Crusher's uniform is green and seconds later it is blue. After watching it several times, it does not appear to be a trick of the light. What happened here? Why would she have on a green uniform in the first place?

Chosen answer: The uniform does indeed change colour. It may be due to the need for a green screen in part, or perhaps some lighting altering our perception. That being said, it certainly looks green at the start, blue thereafter.

The show has been done in HD now and not sure if they fix this problem.
