Star Trek: Deep Space Nine

Extreme Measures - S7-E23

Corrected entry: The entire plot of this episode is to get the cure for the disease from Section 31. Why would they create a cure for a disease designed to wipe out the species it infects? The likelihood of needing to know it so they know what to destroy is odd, as only the Dominion would really want the cure.

Correction: It has been common for people and countries over the years that create diseases to at the same time create an antidote. As the Star Trek universe is somewhat based on human endeavours and experiences, its quite likely that an antidote would be created.

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."
