Star Trek: Voyager

The Killing Game (1) - S4-E18

New this month Corrected entry: When B'Elanna goes to see her German lover, a Citroen 2CV passes by. These weren't manufactured until 1948, long after WWII.

tolby

New this month Correction: This episode is set in the holodeck, not in 1940s Germany. It is likely the programmer felt the car was close enough to the period to be included.

New this month Correction: This is a holodeck simulation. Anachronisms can crop up just like in movies.

Year of Hell (2) - S4-E9

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

Correction: Not entirely correct. The typical dynamical lifetime of a comet is about 500,000 years, which of course, can vary. After its dynamical lifetime, the comet becomes a dead comet, Once a comet has lost all of its available volatile materials, its coma and tail will disappear and the remaining inert nucleus will take on the appearance of an asteroid. Since it is never mentioned what type of comet they are discussing, the scenario is plausible.

Scorpion (1) - S3-E26

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

Correction: Janeway didn't know that the Borg had transwarp conduits that reached the Alpha Quadrant. Additionally, she would not want to encourage the Borg to send any ships towards Earth, since it would simply motivate them to invade. Janeway compromised - they would cross Borg space safely, and without leading to a Borg invasion of the Federation.

Future's End (1) - S3-E8

Corrected entry: When talking to someone from 1996, Tom Paris states that Starfleet Academy is an "East Coast school." Starfleet Academy is actually located in San Francisco, making it a "West Coast school"

Correction: Because Tom Paris was in California (the West Coast) in 1996, he was trying to say something that would make Starfleet Academy sound like it was far away from that region. That is, he said, "East Coast school" in the hope of making Rain Robinson think it was a real school, just one she might not have heard of because it was on the East Coast.

Cold Fire - S2-E10

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

Correction: Ensign Wildman's husband isn't human, he's Ktarian. Human/Ktarian hybrids gestate approximately 18 months.

Greg Dwyer

Timeless - S5-E6

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.

xx:xx:xx

Correction: Janeway states "match their course and speed". The next shot is set in the future, with the Delta Flyer running from the USS Challenger in their attempt to save Voyager in the past. The Challenger is a Galaxy-Class ship captained by La Forge.

Unforgettable - S4-E22

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

Correction: It is mentioned in episode that not only can the memories about her race not be retained by the few other species that they meet, it is also stated that they upload viruses into the computers of any species they meet in order to erase all knowledge of them from all databases (including sensor logs, sensor scans, crew logs and presumably the EMHs memory circuits). This is why Chakotay writes his final log entry for this incident by hand so that it can't be erased.

Dreadnought - S2-E17

Corrected entry: As Janeway talks to the planet representative, the stars are not moving past the window, yet the ship is travelling at full impulse.

Movie Nut

Correction: If they are traveling at impulse (which is slower than light), you would not see the stars move. It would take years to notice any difference in the position of the stars.

Before and After - S3-E21

Corrected entry: When Kes flashes to a moment where people celebrate her ninth birthday, Neelix brings the cake with candles. There are ten candles on the cake instead of nine.

Correction: An additional candle is added for luck in some cultures. As further evidence in the S4 episode Raven, Seven is talking about her birthday. She says her cake had 6 candles on it and 'one more to grow on'.

The Voyager Conspiracy - S6-E9

Corrected entry: The sensor node that is "infected" with photonic fleas is the same prop used as the device intended to destroy Voyager (hidden in a Jeffries tube) in the episode "Relativity."

Birdzip

Correction: The sensor node is the same prop, used in both episodes. In S6-E9 "The Voyager Conspiracy," the sensor node contracts photonic fleas, whereas in S5-E23 "Relativity," a separate prop, "the weapon," gets attached to the same sensor node. For a visual of the weapon, fast-forward to "Relativity" 35:01, where you'll see Captain Braxton holding it in his hand when he's caught trying to attach it to the node.

Phage - S1-E5

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

Correction: His program is smart enough to let some things through but not others. We've often seen objects thrown at the Doctor and going through him, or aliens attacking him and going through him, even though no modifications had been made to his program and he was still able to stand on the floor, hold a tricorder, etc. The Doctor simply tweaked his program a little when he pressed those buttons.

ironcito

Ashes to Ashes - S6-E18

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

Correction: Several species have been shown to be capable of traveling considerably faster than Voyager, so it's entirely possible that the Kobali can, too. Trading a person for a piece of technology would be morally questionable, at best.

ironcito

Unforgettable - S4-E22

Corrected entry: Why must Chakotay use a pen and paper to record his memories of Kellin? There is no justifiable reason that his recorded voice should not be able to be preserved just because he's talking about Kellin.

Birdzip

Correction: This is explained in the same episode - when she left with the fugitives they planted a virus in the computer that wiped out all traces and records. Presumably this same method would be employed by the security force that was to retrieve her.

The Killing Game (2) - S4-E19

Corrected entry: Near the end of the episode, when the holoemitters are overloaded, all of the holographic people disappear. However, the buildings, streets etc. which were also created by the holodeck remain. They should have disappeared, too.

Birdzip

Correction: This is not an error, Cannon indicates that replicator technology, force-fields, and light are used in holodeck creations, The building components, being relatively static, would require less power to replicate and place than to continually project.

Scorpion (1) - S3-E26

Corrected entry: Seven of Nine says that she was assimilated 18 years before. No one from the Alpha Quadrant knew about the Borg at that time.

Joshua Mullis

Correction: There were rumors about them. That's why her parents set out to try and find them and learn about them.

Greg Dwyer

The 37's - S2-E1

Corrected entry: When the 37s are removed from stasis, the Japanese WWII pilot says that they are all speaking Japanese. Janeway explains that her communicator is a language translator and that is why he is hearing them speak Japanese. That is not how the universal translator operates. It has to be set to the language/dialect you require. Voyager's UTs are set to translate into English. The Japanese soldier would not have heard them speaking Japanese unless they specifically set a UT to do so just for him. This is a common error in many episodes as the aliens Voyager's crew encounters down on their home planets don't utilize UT's. So, in reality, the Voyager crew would understand them but they would not understand the Voyager crew.

Correction: The OLD Universal Translators used to have to be set to a specific language. By the Voyager era (24th century), UTs translate differently for different species. This is explained by the translators monitoring the linguistic portion of the brain and translates the words accordingly. Because of this, anyone within monitoring range of the translator will hear words spoken by the wearer in their native language. If the UT had to be set to a specific language prior to speaking, it would be worthless when encountering new species.

Coda - S3-E15

Corrected entry: The tip of the boom appears briefly at the end when Janeway and Chakotay are in the Captain's ready room.

xx:xx:xx

Correction: That's actually part of the set - it's clearer in wider shots.

The Omega Directive - S4-E21

Corrected entry: When Janeway visits Seven as she works to destroy the Omega molecules in the chamber, Seven reports that 11% have been neutralized. They then have a 1 minute, 10 second discussion, and when it's over, Seven states that 18% of the molecules have now been neutralized. Janeway comments, while checking the computer screen, that at the current rate, "this could take hours". Actually, at the current rate, it will take less than 15 minutes.

xx:xx:xx

johnrosa

Correction: It's possible that the progress is not linear. As fewer molecules remain, it may become harder and slower to neutralize them. There are many situations where that happens in real life. For example, killing bacteria or filtering out impurities, where it's quick and easy to remove many, but very hard to remove them all.

ironcito

Show generally

Corrected entry: In the opening sequence, Voyager is passing through a gas cloud. In this sequence Voyager is parting the gas and dust like it would if there was air around, there even are some turbulences near the warp nacelles. Voyager utilises a navigational deflector, which effectively cleans space in front of Voyager. The CGI in the opening sequence shows this only to be a few metres in front of Voyager's bow. How ever navigational deflectors form overlapping shield bubbles a few hundred meters in front of the ship, even at low impulse speed. Flying through such a cloud would even require engaging combat shields, which would form a bubble around Voyager bigger than leaving a few meters of space between the shields and the hull. Even if the shields weren't conformal to the hull there would be more space. Last but not least the navigational deflector would provide particles with a directional impulse straight away from the ship, and not letting it slide along the deflector. The displayed turbulences near the nacelles would be highly abrasive to the ship's hull.

Alex

Correction: Knowledge about the specifics of these technologies is too limited to make such claims. Episodes "Workforce" and "Endgame" show Voyager moving through nebulas with the dust right against the hull, and with no apparent effect from the shields. Several episodes make reference to things like "warp eddies" and "subspace turbulence" which could cause the turbulence and air-like movement of the dust. In "Scorpion", for example, Voyager is thrown around by Borg ships passing nearby, which wouldn't happen if it was just simple newtonian motion in space.

ironcito

Basics (2) - S3-E1

Corrected entry: In the second part of this episode, the Doctor asks the ship's computer of how many persons are on board to get an idea of the number of invading Kazon he is facing. The ship responds with "89 Kazon and one Betazoid". It fails to mention Seska who is a Cardassian.

Correction: The Computer obviously registered Seska as Kazon.

Rog the Bodge

Night - S5-E1

Corrected entry: In this episode there is a region of space with no stars and it is completely dark. While there could be a region with no stars you would still see stars in the distance. When they finally reach the end of the 'void' slowly stars pop into view. If they just stayed stationary these stars would come into view on their own. Light had been traveling from each star from the time of its creation. The galaxy is not so old that light has not reach certain sections yet.

zubarsky

Correction: They say in the episode that a type of radiation is blocking their sensors and visual range, so they can't see beyond the star-less region.

LorgSkyegon

Show generally

Corrected entry: Voyager is often having to dim the lights are figure out ways to save energy by shutting down life support in various sections of the ship. Yet, they have energy for beaming up and down, and holodeck activities, and use of the replicators on a limiting basis. I don't feel like doing the math but the energy required to replicate a cup of coffee is certainly enough to light the ship for a long time.

zubarsky

Correction: Dimming the lights is a method used to conserve energy that doesn't have a great effect on the daily life on Voyager. Turning off replicators or shutting down the holodecks would significantly affect the quality of life for the crew. And turning off the transporters would cause many more difficulties.

LorgSkyegon

Show generally

Corrected entry: In the opening credits, Voyager is seen skimming along above the "surface" of the planetary rings of what appears to be a large planet. However, given the size of the reflection of the ship in the rings below, Voyager can be at most a few hundred meters above the reflective surface. That, coupled with the extreme curvature of the rings, and Voyager's path across them, would make the planet the smallest in the universe, perhaps a few thousand meters across. No moon or asteroid of that size would have enough gravity to capture and retain rings of rocky debris, much less possess an atmosphere that would be thick enough to see or have clouds.

Correction: Voyager has come across planets with vastly different makeups than anything even Starfleet had ever come across before. (Remember the planet with the tachyon core?) Perhaps this one has something similarly strange going on.

LorgSkyegon

Friendship One - S7-E21

Corrected entry: At the beginning of the episode, the "Friendship 1" probe does a flyby. On it, you see Federation and Starfleet markings. During the briefing after the credits, Tuvok states that the probe was launched 4 years after Zephram Cochrane's first warp flight. Cochrane's warp flight was in 2063 and the probe was launched in 2067 The United Federation of Planets didn't exist until 2161, and even though there was techinically a Starfleet, it's well known that it didn't adopt the "arrowhead" (aka "Delta) style symbol until the 2240's.

poehitman

Correction: Fan speculation and trivia generated in other media (novels, comics, blueprints, guides, etc) cannot be used to gauge a mistake. Mistakes only count if they contradict what was established in a previous film or television episode. And the date of origin of the arrowhead insignia has never been stated in any.

JC Fernandez

Threshold - S2-E15

Corrected entry: When Paris is gasping for air in sickbay several of his dental fillings are visible. It's highly unlikely that dentistry of the 24:th century still uses metal amalgam to fix teeth.

Correction: You're assuming they are metal, they could be made of any material, colouring proves nothing. And personal opinions are not valid entries either.

GalahadFairlight

Show generally

Corrected entry: Whenever the ship is shaking, it's obvious it's just the camera wobbling, because people can talk normally and they can be seen to make small movements without being disrupted by the shaking which would not happen naturally.

Correction: Not true. Individuals can adapt quite well to maintain balance during turbulent moments. When's the last time you saw an airline stewardess fall to the ground?

JC Fernandez

The Voyager Conspiracy - S6-E9

Corrected entry: As Seven of Nine goes over her conspiracy theories with Janeway, she mentions "Commander" Seska (the Cardassian spy from the first two seasons). But prior to her being exposed in "State of Flux", she only had the rank of ensign.

Correction: Character mistake. The new cortical processor that Seven of Nine added to her regeneration alcove malfunctioned, causing Seven to misinterpret new data downloaded to her cranial implants. Seven may have erroneously perceived Seska's rank as being a commander, making Seska appear more significant to Seven. Janeway, meanwhile, is intently listening to Seven's highly-detailed (and ultimately wrong) "conspiracy theory," and the captain either did not notice the error or she simply chose to ignore it while Seven was speaking.

raywest

Parturition - S2-E7

Corrected entry: In the beginning of this episode, Paris and Kes are running a shuttle simulation. During the simulation the shuttle gets attacked by several Jem Hadar (Dominion) ships. The problem is, the dominion was unknown before Voyager left the Alpha quadrant, and does not find out about the dominion until Season 4 (Message in a Bottle).

xx:xx:xx

Correction: Jem'Hadar ships were first encountered in the final episode of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine's second season, set some months prior to the departure of Voyager from the Alpha Quadrant (which occured at approximately the same time as DS9's third season opened). As a new and formidable threat, it seems entirely reasonable that all simulation packages would have been swiftly upgraded to include the Jem'Hadar vessels.

Tailkinker

Macrocosm - S3-E12

Corrected entry: In the scene where Captain Janeway and Neelix are trying to get to the bridge, they go into a turbolift, and they are speaking about the failure of the enviromental controls. Captain Janeway is scanning the turbolift with the tricorder, and she's holding the right margin of the turbolift's door. Meanwhile, Neelix starts to speak about spending his childhood in the Rinax marshlands, the hottest area in the sector, and he starts to go around in the turbolift in a circle. Note that when he finishes the circle and gets back to Janeway, the captain is still scanning with the tricorder in the same position as earlier, but this time she's holding the left margin of the turbolift door.

Correction: The camera tracks Neelix all the way around the turbolift without cutting away. The fact that Janeway is in a different position is not a mistake. She simply changed her position.

JC Fernandez

Sacred Ground - S3-E7

Corrected entry: The specified episode starts at stardate 50063.2, as mentioned by captain Janeway's entry log. However, the previous episode (Season 3, Ep. 6 - Remember) begins with captain Janeway's log, recorded at stardate 50203.1, so in conclusion episode 7 happened earlier than episode 6.

Correction: Not really a mistake, given that it is never specified in either episode which events occurred first.

Jason Hoffman

Threshold - S2-E15

Corrected entry: The science behind what happens to Paris in this episode is fundamentally flawed. The Doctor states that Tom is "evolving," however the smallest unit of evolution is a population. An individual cannot evolve, only mutate. Also, evolution is not a predestined process as it is apparently portrayed in this episode. It is a random occurrence, and so there is no way to know what humanity will evolve into.

Correction: This is not a scientific error, but a grammatical one, and since the doctor is a humanized facsimile of its original creator, it is simply a semantic choice of the original programmer. In common usage, mutation and evolution are often interchanged by the user, even if the absolute literal definition is not 100% accurate.

johnrosa

Eye of the Needle - S1-E7

Corrected entry: During the senior staff meeting to discuss the wormhole, Janeway's expression (in close-ups) doesn't always make sense. While most of the time she's looking off to the viewer's left, towards Torres, a few times she looks directly to the viewer's right, towards the camera. It's quite obvious that there's nothing she can be looking at in the scene.

Correction: There are three characters seated at the table in front of Janeway: Torres and Kim to viewers' left and Tuvok to viewers' right. She's looking back and forth among all three.

JC Fernandez

Caretaker (1) - S1-E1

Corrected entry: In the beginning when the wave hits the ship, Janeway's hair goes from being a curly up-do to being a mess after the wave hits to being back up in a plain up do when she enters engineering. She wouldn't have stopped to re-do her hair in the middle of the catastrophe.

Boobra

Correction: She wouldn't have to stop to put her hair back up. My girlfriend frequently puts her hair up while walking or driving and doesn't lose any time at all.

Jason Hoffman

Deadlock - S2-E21

Corrected entry: When the two Voyagers initially try to merge, the damaged voyager has to evacuate all the crew to the engineering deck (deck 11) and then shut down life support elsewhere to save power, leaving the rest of the ship uninhabitable. However, after the attempt fails and with no prior notice, Kes and Janeway are able to travel from the good ship to the damaged one via the rift on deck 15. They have no problems with this, despite the fact that they should not have been able to breathe on arrival with life support turned off.

roboc

Correction: Life Support turned off does not mean that there is immediately an uninhabitable enviroment. It only means that no fresh air will be provided to these decks. The present air on these deck can support life for several minutes, maybe even hours.

Bjoern_Buller

Endgame (1) - S7-E25

Corrected entry: Seven of Nine knows about the existence of the Borg transwarp hub (and the fact that there are six of them), but she seems to have forgotten its location.

Correction: Seven is disconnected from the Collective and probably doesn't recall every detail from her experience. She likely recalled the number of hubs because it was an important fact, but the locations may have been less well known (or hidden from drones to keep their location secret if the drones were ever liberated).

Good Shepherd - S6-E20

Corrected entry: When Crewman Heron is in his escape pod informing Captain Janeway of his intentions a mouse pointer can be seen moving around on the LCARS display in front of him.

Correction: Submitted and corrected already. Tom is fascinated by 20th century technology, and incorporates many features of this era into the workings of the ship. One of these features could have been a mouse cursor.

One - S4-E25

Corrected entry: In other episodes once the doctor has been deactivated outside sickbay his mobile emitter falls to the ground and we see it. In this episode in engineering when the doctor is deactivated we don't see the emitter.

Correction: In "The Killing Game" Hirogen & some Starfleet crewmembers install holo-emitters thoughout most of the ship, including corridors, the mess hall, astrometrics & engineering (we know this as one of the Hirogen hunters brings a rifle into engineering). The holo-emitters should still be working.

Survival Instinct - S6-E2

Corrected entry: When Seven of Nine and the other Borg are stranded on the planet they cook and eat the meat of an animal. The problem is the Borg are an extremely logical race so why don't they cook the organs which are a lot more nutritious.

Correction: This is a character mistake based on a conscious choice they make, not a movie mistake. One possible explanation can be that since the Borg are unfamiliar with eating in the traditional way, only to recharging in the Borg energy conduit port, they have to rely on what they know of other races' feeding habits and therefore decide that meat is the most acceptable food.

Twotall

Collective - S6-E16

Corrected entry: What happened to the baby? We never see her after this episode.

Correction: Voyager simply found a planet with her species on it and left her with them, it isn't necessary to see it.

Worst Case Scenario - S3-E24

Corrected entry: When the 2 guys who enter the bridge the tall guy is on the left when Torres is running the program. Later when Paris is running the program the tall guy is on the right.

Correction: A holodeck program can be customized to suit the individual user without letting them into the information that would alter the program drastically. It's like changing the main character in computer games.

Workforce (1) - S7-E16

Corrected entry: The whole crew is forced into the Workforce of another society - but what of little Naomi Wildman? Where was she during all of this? Surely they didn't arrange for childcare.

Correction: Why wouldn't they? Surely Voyager can't be the first ship to arrive at this planet with children on board & they arrange other amenities for the workforce.

Basics (1) - S2-E26

Corrected entry: The Kazon attacks are concentrated on the Second Command processor and yet nobody checks what would happen if it fails. When the time comes to order the self destruct, everybody acts shocked that the Second Command Processor has a direct influence on the self destruct. This ignorance would not have been a major problem for any other Federation ship but in Voyager, the self destruct is activated as often as the phasers (especially in this season).

Correction: Voyagers crew believe that the Kazon are concentrating their fire at that spot is in order to drive the shields down without giving them time to recover (it's just a convenient spot like the deflector dish), they don't think they have the knowledge of the ship to knock out one of their last ditch defensive measures. Also it wasn't just the ships the Kazon man who blew himself up would have helped greatly to affect ships systems (including the self destruct).

Basics (1) - S2-E26

Corrected entry: When Paris suggests to take a shuttle craft and contact the Talaxians, the Voyager momentarily slows down below a Kazon ship so that the shuttle can depart. This is probably the worst place you can imagine to launch a shuttle. During the whole space battle the Voyager was flying in loops around the Kazon carriers, literally. Which means she is a lot faster than her enemies. If you want to send a shuttle, wouldn't you go to a safe distance and then release the shuttle? Captain Janeway's choice would made sense if their engines were damaged but at that time, the impulse engines were functioning perfectly.

Correction: Janeway's hoping that the shuttle can sneak away without being seen. If she leaves the battle and comes back, the Kazon will know something's wrong and would search for it.

Worst Case Scenario - S3-E24

Corrected entry: When the holoprogram ends on Paris, he is still holding a phaser. The phaser is a part of the program, so it should have disappeared when the program ended.

Correction: The computer replicates items in the holonovel for the crew when the touch things...so when the program was shut off the computer had replicated the phaser.

Ashes to Ashes - S6-E18

Corrected entry: When Lindsay Ballard explains to Janeway what happened in regard to her death (in order to prove herself valid), she said that she fell victim to a Hirogen trap 3 years ago. The problem here is that since this is the series' sixth season, three years prior would make that event occurring in the third season. However, Voyager didn't encounter the Hirogen until season four.

Correction: The entry assumes that exactly one year passes per season, however, I'm sure there is at least one episode that proves otherwise.

Riddles - S6-E6

Corrected entry: At the end of this episode, Tuvok squirts frosting on a cake in a wavy pattern, and Janeway suddenly announces, "It's the frequency." A wavy pattern is NOT a frequency, it's a waveform. The frequency is the number of waves that pass through any point each second. There's no way to express a frequency to any reasonable degree of accuracy by squirting frosting on a cake.

Correction: If Tuvok has drawn exactly the same number of waves he saw on the tricorder then, knowing the size of the screen and available time scales, a number of possible frequencies could be calculated. Trial and error would be all that would be required to find the right one.

One - S4-E25

Corrected entry: In engineering just before the doctor was deactivated he said "I tied" twice.

Correction: The ships systems are being affected by the nebula they're flying through, this could be a effect of this.

Fury - S6-E23

Corrected entry: What happened to the Type-9 shuttle that was given to Kes in "The Gift?" She could have crashed this into Voyager just as well and she could still have transported aboard as the shuttle has a transporter.

Correction: Federation shuttles wouldn't be able to keep up with Federation starships so she probably traded it in and used local starships to catch up to Voyager. She then acquired the shuttle she was in when she caught up with Voyager.

Shattered - S7-E11

Corrected entry: In Chaotica's lab Chaotica throws Captain Janeway's hypospray away. Later when Seska takes her hostage we can see her hypospray.

Correction: After Chaotica throws away her hypospray, the scene cuts to Chakotay and Janeway in the hall. Perhaps she stopped to retrieve the hypospray before leaving, but it was not shown. Or they could have easily gotten another from the Doctor.

Endgame (2) - S7-E26

Corrected entry: The Borg Queen keeps insisting that Seven keep Janeway away from the Nebula, but both before and after this insistence she says she doesn't care about Voyager and it can't possibly destroy the Transwarp Hub. Which is it?

Correction: She's the Borg Queen. Do you really think she would show weakness by admitting that Voyager was a real threat? She's just blustering.

Critical Care - S7-E5

Corrected entry: Gar is trading in iridium which is claimed to have a very short half life, allowing Tuvok to deduce how far away Gar could have gotten it. In reality, iridium is a stable metal and has no half life.

Correction: There are many radioactive isotopes of iridium. See http://chemlab.pc.maricopa.edu/periodic/Ir.html.

J I Cohen

Flashback - S3-E2

Corrected entry: In the episode Flashback, it seems that the producers didn't watch Star Trek VI. In the scene where Mr. Tuvok explains to Captain Janeway about the explosion of the Klingon moon, he says that Captain Kirk and Dr. McCoy were arrested two days after the explosion, when it actually happened over two months after the explosion.

Correction: This could be a simple character mistake. The events of "The undiscovered country" take place in 2293 whilst this episode takes place in 2373 & Whilst we have the videos or dvds & can watch the films & series whenever we want, at the time Tuvok only has his memory to go off & is under stress from the memory virus. It's likely that later on he would have corrected himself to the captain.

The Omega Directive - S4-E21

Corrected entry: Seven of Nine has said before that the Borg only assimilate information, they do not create it on their own, ie. they do not research. But in this episode, she says that the Borg had sacrificed 27 cubes and 600,000 drones while researching the Omega Molecule.

Correction: Perhaps the 27 cubes and 600,000 drones were lost trying to assimilate the Omega Molecule or the technology required to create it. Or they assimilated the technology to create it, but lost all those ships and drones trying to make it. Either of those could be classified as "research" by the Borg.

Day of Honor - S4-E3

Corrected entry: How could Tom and B'Elanna transport themselves from the shuttle into space using voice command if the comm system was down?

Correction: Because Federation ships are designed to make sure that the passengers survive - they have several safety mechanisms so whilst other systems could go off line the emergency transporter should be one of the last things to go and often comes with its own power & certain systems.

Pathfinder - S6-E10

Corrected entry: If the Delta Quadrant is uncharted, then how would Starfleet command know about "spatial anomalies" that Voyager would have to avoid?

Correction: The Delta quadrant hasn't been explored by our people but the Federation has sent probes up to a certain distance.

Alliances - S2-E14

Corrected entry: The Kazon man says he is putting together a dodecahedron on the table; however, dodecahedrons are a 3-D shape, and cannot lay flat on the table.

Correction: This is probably why he can't figure out how to make it.

Unity - S3-E17

Corrected entry: Riley, the former Borg, says that she was assimilated at the battle of Wolf 359. This is impossible, since there was only one Borg ship at the battle, and it was heading straight for Earth, and when it finally got there, it was destroyed.

Correction: To quote the Borg Queen from First Contact, "You think in such three-dimensional terms." She was on that very same ship and she survived. Surely she escaped with at least a small contingient of her drones. They don't tell us how, but it is rather clear that some sort of time travel was implimented.

Threshold - S2-E15

Corrected entry: In this episode it is stated that Warp 10 is actually infinite Warp - a craft travelling at such a velocity will simultaneously occupy every point in the universe. However in the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode All Good Things part 2 (shot several years earlier), the Captain Riker of the future at one point orders the modified Enterprise to be taken to Warp 13. Even if the problems of using Warp 10 were ever ironed out, how would it be possible to go faster?

Correction: The warp scale was adjusted once between Classic Trek and TNG. We see 1701 going Warp 12-13 a few times while 1701-D struggled to do 9.6. Obviously it was adjusted again while never quite reaching infinite speed. (This sounds odd, but warp is measured exponentially, so every decimal point closer to infinite speed is hugely faster.)

Scientific Method - S4-E7

Corrected entry: In the episode "Scientific Method" where cloaked aliens were doing medical experiments on the crew, wait for the part where Seven goes into the turbolift and she says "Deck 5". When the turbolift doors open she gets out and walks to the Mess Hall to pour a cup of coffee. How can she be in the Mess Hall if she is on Deck 5. The Mess Hall is on Deck 2 right below the bridge.

Correction: Seven is going to sickbay (deck five). After a while another crewmember enters the lift & is being experimented on. She is the reason Seven leaves the lift on deck two.

Show generally

Corrected entry: If Voyager is travelling in a fairly straight line at a fairly consistent speed (often Warps 6 through 9) why do they keep running into other recurring characters, such as Seska? Is everyone else just following Voyager around the Delta quadrant? In the same way, why does Nelix keep bumping into friends? Had his small ship (which was slower than Voyager) already travelled for several years in the exact same direction before?

Correction: If Seska is the only person you are going to point out then the the answer is yes, Seska is definitely following Voyager around. Ever since she was kicked off she has been trying to capture it with the Kazon. Neelix keeps running into people he knows because he has travelled quite a bit around the Delta Quadrant. For the first two seasons he's pretty much been where Voyager is going, but eventually there was a point where Voyager went farther than Neelix had ever gone and he never met people he knew after that.

Message in a Bottle - S4-E14

Corrected entry: When both Doctors are on the bridge and they get fired on by the Romulans they deactivate the life support system. Later, Federation officers transported onto the bridge and for some unknown reason, the life support system is back online. Wouldn't the Federation officers be having trouble breathing without any life support?

Correction: They turned off the life support but did not evacuate the air. So the air is still there. The boarding party would have to turn life support back on but they could survive for a period of time without it on.

Flashback - S3-E2

Corrected entry: In the episode Flashback, during the first mind meld between Captain Janeway and Mr. Tuvok, when they first show up at the bridge of the Excelsior, is mentioned a rescue mission of Captain Kirk and Dr. McCoy, who were arrested due to the assassination of the Klingon Chancellor. However, on Star Trek VI - The Undiscovered Country, there is no mention of such mission mainly because the only ship that was nearby Klingon Space was the Enterprise.

Correction: Captain Sulu was operating against orders and without knowledge of StarFleet Command, why would it be mentioned in the first place?

Sol Parker

Good Shepherd - S6-E20

Corrected entry: In the episode "Good Shepherd", when the crewman is in the Delta Flyer's escape pod, look at the computer panel in front of his face. You can see a mouse cursor, which moves wildly about the screen after about a second, before the camera pans away. There are NO mouse cursors used on the computers in the 24th century, everything is touch sensitive.

Correction: Tom Paris, who designed the Flyer, states in some episodes that he's fascinated by old 20th century technology and incorporated many aspects of it into the workings of the Flyer. One of these features could have been a mouse cursor.

Show generally

Corrected entry: Not really a mistake but where did Voyager get the seemingly endless supply of shuttles?

Correction: In the episode where the Delta Flyer is being built Lt. Torres mentions that she is tired of building new shuttles at a staff meeting.

Shannon O'Donnel: 5:00am, December 27th, 2000. I'm in the great state of...Indiana, I think. I saw the world's largest ball of string this morning and the world's largest beefsteak tomato this afternoon. It was the size of a Volkswagen. The string, not the tomato.

Mistakes

When the Doctor begins to "fade" in the transporter room his mobile emitter fades with him. Since it's made of solid matter and is not a hologram, this shouldn't be possible.
