Star Trek: The Next Generation

Angel One - S1-E14

Plot hole: Data calculates the time to reach the Neutral Zone in time by assuming maximum warp speed. After the solution, in the last minutes, Picard orders only warp six. With this speed, they won't get there in time. Aren't they in a hurry anymore ? (00:35:30 - 00:42:20)

11001001 - S1-E15

Plot hole: The crew makes no attempt to re-board the Enterprise or stop it from leaving the starbase even after they find out there is no danger from the anti-matter.

11001001 - S1-E15

Plot hole: The binars needed two people to upload the data back to their world but they only intended on keeping Riker in the holodeck. Riker is just one person. Picard came into the holodeck purely by accident - even Minuet said this was true. If Picard hadn't been there, Riker could not have uploaded the data on his own and the binars' plan would have failed.

Suggested correction: The Binars only trapped Riker because they thought they might need someone to restore the computer for them, which wouldn't have taken 2 Enterprise crew members. It was the fact that the Binars got to their planet too late that required Picard and Riker to work together. However, the Binars already knew Picard was on the Holodeck before they initiated their plan because when Picard exits his ready room he says he's going to join Riker. Had Picard not done this, certainly the Binars could have kept a 2nd crew member on-board somehow, if needed.
