Emissary (1) - S1-E1

Question: Did Nana Visitor's hairstyle change from her first appearance in the episode to the next scene when they were going down the stairs?

Cardassians - S2-E5

Question: Why did the businessman, Zolan, make the false accusations of Rugal being abused by his adopted parents?

Answer: Worf: Curzon's name is an honored one among my people. Dax: (in Klingon) Yeah, but I'm a lot better looking than he was.

Chosen answer: No. He's given his name, that's all. Nothing there that might lead to a paradox. If he's gone into detail about his time travelling, that might cause an issue or two, but simply stating his name does nothing.

Answer: No more so than Sisko posing for a photo in the 21st century while pretending to be Gabriel Bell.

Answer: His last name is something Kirk will forget, since he was on temporary assignment and essentially passing through.

Show generally

Question: I've noticed in some episodes the person playing Dr. Bashir is credited as Siddig El Fadil and in others he's Alexander Siddig. At what point in the series did he have the name change?

Answer: He changed his name after the third season because people were having difficulty pronouncing his last name."Alexander Siddig" is the name he typically goes by as his full birth name, "Siddig El Tahir El Fadil El Siddig Abderahman Mohammed Ahmed Abdel Karim El Mahdi", is far too verbose and complex for screen credits.

Question: This probably spans the whole Star Trek series, but I noticed it specifically on DS9. How does the computer locate an individual on the station without a com badge, but at the same time, can't locate an individual if his or her com badge is taken off (i.e. the computer only locates the com badge)? Is it ever revealed, in any Star Trek show, if individuals (such a guest) without com badges are given something else?

Answer: The Com badges are Starfleet issue and most likely programmed for each individual. Most visitor's individual physical measurements are taken when boarding a ship or station for security reasons. Height, weight, age gender and nationality.

Penumbra (1) - S7-E17

Continuity mistake: Throughout this episode you will notice that Ezri Dax's pips change. One moment she has two full pips on her collar and at other times, only one is filled in while the other remains black.
