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 week 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Trivia

King Abdullah of Jordan appears in this episode (he was Crown Prince at the time), as a Voyager crewmember in a corridor scene. He is uncredited.
