Star Trek: Voyager

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.

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."
