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: 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: 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.
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).
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.
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
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).
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.
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?
