Star Trek: Enterprise

Fallen Hero - S1-E23

Other mistake: As Archer, T'Pol and the ambassador are having dinner, the Ambassador inquires about who previously occupied the cabin (that she was to be staying in). T'Pol assumes this is regarding concerns about human "odor", but the ambassador says, "Actually I was hoping to meet the crew member in order to thank her for allowing me to disrupt her routine." However, the ambassador has no way of knowing what gender the crew member is, as no mention of this person has been made. Although the crew member was, in fact, Hoshi (who is female), the ambassador would not have known this, and had no reason to refer to the crew member as "her". (00:08:34)

Suggested correction: There are any number of ways the ambassador could know. Considering the ambassador knew it was a crewmember's quarters, it's likely that when she came on board, the pronoun "she" was used in reference to the prior occupant. Or perhaps an item of clothing was left in a drawer.

Additionally, in our culture if a gender is unknown a male pronoun is frequently used, but her culture may use a feminine pronoun as the default.

Captain Archer: I believe someone once defined a compromise as a solution that neither side is happy with.
Shran: In that case, these talks have been extremely successful.

Question: Does anyone know how old Zefram Cochrane is or when he was born? He seemed pretty old in Star Trek: First Contact which takes place in 2063, and "Broken Bow" shows him still alive about 60 years later dedicating the Warp 5 complex with Captain Archer's father Henry.

Answer: Acording to the Star Trek Encyclopedia Cochrane was born in 2030. His warp flight was in 2063, and he himself disappeared from Alpha Centauri in the year 2117 at 87. Kirk met him on a planetoid in the Gsmms Canaris region in the year 2267 making him 237. The first episode of Enterprise is in 2151, so Cochrane was missing for 34 years by that time and would have been 121 at that time.
