Star Trek: Deep Space Nine

The Alternate - S2-E12

Corrected entry: Once again, a technical detail overlooked regarding runabout transporters. After transporting the alien column to the runabout, Dax tells the computer to realign the transporters to beam them aboard. Once again, a party of more than two people was beamed up by a runabout at the same time. The writers seem to keep missing that technical detail... Federation runabouts can only handle two people at once in their transporters.

Correction: Parts of runabouts, like sensors & torpedo launchers, are able to be upgraded depending on the mission; so additional transporters could have been installed.

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."
