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.

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.

Conspiracy - S1-E25

Continuity mistake: 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."

Question: Were people able to "lock" the Holodeck doors so that others couldn't just walk in on them? I don't recall an episode where the doors were locked that wasn't because of some malfunction. It seems like Lieutenant Barclay, for example, would either lock the doors during his "fantasies" or have some "fail-safe" that shuts the program off when being walked in on. Otherwise, it's just a really dumb thing to do (for him or anyone playing out a fantasy) knowing they could easily be caught.

Answer: Yes. The doors to the holodecks can be locked when in use by anyone aboard the Enterprise so they couldn't be disturbed. However, high ranking officers like Captain Picard could override the doors as it's seen that overrides are in use even for the crews quarters. Even Barclay, when he's indulging in one of his fantasies could have the doors to the holodeck unlocked by an override code.
