Ship in a Bottle - S6-E12

Question: Is Moriarty aware that he is a character on a TV show? If Reg is the only real character in Moriarty's holodeck simulation then why does Moriarty continue his ruse when Reg is not in the scene? To keep the viewer engaged? Was this an inside writers joke?

Chosen answer: Moriarty's holodeck simulation was also created as a deception for Picard and Data, who are also real. Moriarty does realise that he is a holodeck creation based on a character in the Arthur Conan Doyle Sherlock Holmes novels. However, he was imbued with self-awareness when he was originally created by Geordi as a villain "capable of defeating Data" in the episode, "Elementary, Dear Data." Over time, he overcomes his own programming and achieves sentience, hence his desire to be liberated from the limitations of holodeck space.

Relics - S6-E4

Question: On the Enterprise-D, Scotty asks to see the bridge of his old ship. The computer shows him the original Constitution class bridge. After the refit, before the A was added, it was referred to as a Constitution class as well as Enterprise class. So, why didn't the computer show Scotty the refit bridge?

Chosen answer: "Enterprise class" has always been an apocryphal term, mainly used in expanded universe material; so it simply might not exist in the actual universe of the series. The computer might also infer from the parameters "my old ship" and "No bloody A - B - C - or D!" that he means the original bridge.

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.
