Corrected entry: In the beginning, when the doctor is activated, he immediately asks who activated him. The computer tells him he was activated when a red alert was initiated. But then he finds out no one is on board, so there was no one to initiate the red alert at that moment. He should have been activated much earlier, when the crew was still on board and under red alert, even in a simulation.Bishop73
Corrected entry: When we see the now blind Tuvok shaving, he is using a metal blade, the type still used today, and promptly cuts himself with it. However in TNG, Geordi La Forge (also blind, but using a VISOR) is shown using a bladeless razor with a little light beam that wouldn't cut him. One of these should be available on Voyager, over 10 years later. Lack of power can't a problem, as Tuvok had the lights in his room on the whole time, despite not needing them on account of being blind.
Corrected entry: While Ensign Ballard is trying to dazzle Torres, she switches between English and Kobali. Torres gives her a look and when questioned, she tells her, "You were speaking Kobali." Others in Engineering are also directing strange looks toward Ensign Ballard. The problem is that the Universal Translator should be taking care of this, causing the others to only hear what is being said in their preferred language.Birdzip
Corrected entry: When Chakotay's comet removal simulation erases 8,000 civilizations, Annorax tells him that 4 billion years before, material from the comet was the catalyst for the eventual development of several civilizations. However, comets, by their very nature, are short-lived, around 10,000 years. There is no way a comet that seeded life across multiple solar systems 4 billion years earlier would still exist.Guy
Corrected entry: Both the Borg and Chakotay reference that it would take months for Voyager to cross Borg space. The Borg use trans-warp regularly, which is the method Voyager eventually arrives home at the end of the series. The Borg could have scooped up Voyager and had them not only on the other side of Borg space, but all the way home in less than a day. Janeway really missed an opportunity in her negotiations.JKMcDostie
Corrected entry: At the beginning of this episode, we are told it has been 10 months since Voyager was transported to the delta quadrant. However Ensign Wildman is still pregnant at this point in the series and doesn't actually go into labour until series 2 episode 21 (deadlock). She must have been pregnant before boarding Voyager, as her husband is still in the Alpha quadrant. That is one long pregnancy.Nikki Yates
Corrected entry: After Captain Janeway instructs Seven of Nine to match Voyager's course and speed with the Delta Flyer, the scene cuts to an external flyby of the Delta Flyer, followed by what is presumably Voyager (an Intrepid-class ship), but the ship following the shuttle is a Galaxy-class vessel with curved, fixed pylons for the warp nacelles. Voyager's nacelles pivot, and look nothing like that of a Galaxy-class starship.
Corrected entry: If Kellin spent multiple weeks on the ship, certainly there would be security surveillance evidence that she was there. Even if she didn't visually show up on the video, people would be seen interacting with an invisible someone. Similarly, the Doctor would either be able to see her and remember or not be able to see her and figure out that people were interacting with an invisible person. And what about the ship's logs? People would certainly have talked about her in their logs.Birdzip
Corrected entry: When the Doctor is talking about the magnetic containment fields that govern holograms, he slaps Paris. Then he pushes some buttons and when Paris tries to hit the Doctor, his hand passes right through. The Doctor then presses some buttons again to return the fields to normal. One problem: If Paris's hand passes through the Doctor, the Doctor's hand should pass through the buttons.Birdzip
Corrected entry: It is not feasible that Ensign Ballard would be able to catch up with Voyager. The stardate of her death is quoted as 51563. The episode has a stardate of 53679.4. In "Hope and Fear" (stardate 51978.2), Voyager uses slipstream technology to jump 300 light years. In "Timeless" (stardate 52143.6), they use it again to jump 10,000 light years. In "Night" (stardate 52081.2), a spatial vortex gets them 2,500 light years closer. In "Dark Frontier" (stardate 52619.2), though avoiding the Borg has added 2 years to their journey, they use a transwarp coil from the Borg sphere to shorten their journey by 15 years (roughly 15,000 light years). In "The Voyager Conspiracy" (stardate 53329), the crew uses a graviton catapult to cut 3 years off their journey. All of this happened between Ensign Ballard's death and her return to Voyager. With all of these massive jumps, the only explanation for Ensign Ballard being able to catch up with Voyager is that the Kobali have amazing technology for travelling at extremely high speeds. However, if this is the case, Janeway would have asked for the technology in return for Ballard.Birdzip
