Star Trek: Deep Space Nine

Statistical Probabilities - S6-E9

Corrected entry: Patrick, the elderly and child-like one of the visiting genetically engineered trio, appears in the background with his reading glasses for ~3 seconds. Mature actors in the 20th century need glasses. Mature genetically enhanced people of the future never wear glasses except that one scene.

Correction: While that may be generally true, we get an example of that not being the case with Kirk in Star Trek II. (Granted, that's 80 years earlier, but the principle holds up.) McCoy tells Kirk that he would normally administer Retinax V for his presbyopia, but Kirk responds that he's allergic to Retinax, hence McCoy's gift of the reading glasses. It would make sense that whatever treatment is used in the time of DS9, it's very possible that there would be people for whom that is not an option, either due to choice or unique medical concerns.

Mistakes

Earlier in the season, it was established that the Jem'Hadar are genetically engineered to be loyal to the Changelings, meaning they will not deliberately harm them. With that in mind, the Changelings still care about Odo's well being despite his refusal to return to them. So why didn't the Lovok Changeling send a message to the Jem'Hadar ships to inform them that a Changeling was going to be on the runabout? Given that he took time to offer another chance to return to his people, you would think he'd take time to make sure he returned to the station safely.

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."
