Star Trek: Enterprise

Regeneration - S2-E23

Corrected entry: In 'Regeneration,' the doctor manages to find a way to defeat the Nanoprobes. These are 24th Century Nanoprobes that no scientist or doctor from that era can defeat. Yet he can do it whilst under the Nanoprobes effect (i.e., he is not operating at full strength) and in only a few hours. Maybe he should leave a note for Dr. Crusher to tell her to try that radiation out?

Correction: So far as we know, a Denobulan (Dr. Phlox's race) has never been infected by Borg nanoprobes. The cure he devised might be totally ineffective on other races.

Regeneration - S2-E23

Corrected entry: In the episode "Regeneration", towards the end of the episode there's a scene where several Enterprise crewmen are being pursued by several borg. The crewmen fire their phase pistols at the borg and two of the drones are hit and dies and then when the next two drones are hit they have developed shields against this phaser setting. In the next scene we see Archer and Reed on the transport ship that the borg is modifying and they are shooting and killing drones right and left continously without any of the drones adapting their shields. This is long before Picard and Janeway so naturally nobody, not even Reed, has learned that they have to alternate frequencies on the phasers in order to keep the borg from adapting while on the other hand the borg are all interconnected so when the drones on the Enterprise developed shields so should the drones on the borg ship.

Correction: Actually, there has been some debate about this among Star Trek fans and we have come to more a less a consensus. During the first encounter with the assimilated Tarkaleans they were using the stun setting because they didn't want to hurt them. Later they modified weapons to use against the Borg but only a few among which were the ones Archer and Reed used aboard the transport. They used these on the highest setting and since the Borg have not assimilated this technology, they couldn't adapt to it. The security team aboard Enterprise used unmodified weapons on their highest setting which worked but were adapted to.

Regeneration - S2-E23

Corrected entry: This series plays long before Star Trek TNG, so how come Starfleet has forgotten all about the Borg. In the TNG series the Borg are discovered and Starfleet has no information about them. Surely someone should have mentioned something about them in the Starfleet archives.

Correction: The Borg in Enterprise are a direct result of Picard's trip backwards in time in "First Contact." Picard's interaction with the past is naturally going to change a lot of things in the timeline - but the producers can't re-film every episode of TNG to show it! Not to mention the fact that the whole incident was likely classified by StarFleet and buried CIA-style.

The Catwalk - S2-E12

Continuity mistake: T'Pol says she has never been camping, but she went in "Strange New World."

Ensign Hoshi Sato: Maybe it's a log. What do you think?
Commander Tucker: Beats me. Could be a laundry list... or instructions on how to conquer the universe?
