Star Trek: Deep Space Nine

The Nagus - S1-E11

Corrected entry: At Jadzia's insistence, Benjamin goes to find Jake when he doesn't show up for dinner. To do this, he asks the computer for his location. As shown in "Dax" and "Captive Pursuit," Deep Space Nine's computers rely on commbadges to locate specific people, just like on the Enterprise. Jake doesn't wear a commbadge, nor does he appear to have anything similar, so how did the computer find him?

Correction: As the episode does not specifically indicate what method the computer used to determined Jake's location, there are rather simple explanations for it knowing where he was. First, he and Nog are carrying electronic equipment similar to PDAs, and these devices have been known to access the main computer, so if Jake's PDA is accessing the computer from Cargo Bay 14, the computer can imply Jake is there. Also, a cargo bay can require coded access so that Jake had to tell the computer he wanted to go in. Similar restrictions have also been shown in other episodes.

Mistakes

During the fight between Garak and Worf near the end of the episode, a Jefferies tube door is knocked out of its frame to reveal the end of the set - a dark room with a wooden scaffold and various other pieces of equipment. (Slow-mo helpful but not required)

Trivia

Buck Bokai, a baseball player from the 21st Century, who becomes "real" in this episode, broke Joe DiMaggio's consecutive hitting streak in 2026. While he's not physically seen or referred to by name, this fact is mentioned in the 'Star Trek: The Next Generation' episode "The Big Goodbye."
