Star Trek: Voyager

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.

Indeed, Tuvok remembers Valtaine dying on Excelsior's bridge, but he was shown alive and well at the end of ST:VI. In fact, Tuvok remembers himself being on Excelsior, when he wasn't shown in ST:VI.

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?

Elogium - S2-E4

Plot hole: In this episode Kes states that she has to decide now whether to have a child or not because Ocampa women can only get pregnant once and deliver one child. If that was the case they would have died out a long time ago, or never even evolved, as two people only getting one offspring would reduce the population to 50% of the original figure each generation.

Suggested correction: It's also possible that it's simply required of Ocampan women to give birth the first time they go through it, and can then experience it again.

Nothing in the dialogue suggest Ocampa's can have additional children. While we can speculate about fictitious species, it's still a plot hole due to writing. Kes states she's going through the "elogium" which is a time of change where her body prepares for fertilization. She then explicit states the "elogium" only occurs once. While the doctor compares it to puberty, the elogium is both sexual maturity and "heat", that is, the time a female is ready for fertilization.

But it doesn't ever state the normalcy of birthing for Ocompans. Perhaps sextuplets is the norm?

Kes frequently used the word "child." If it was normal to give birth to more than one, she would know this and should say "children."

Bishop73

Do not forget that this is all done through the universal translator. For all you know the Ocompan word for child and children is the same so the translator cannot tell the difference.
