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.

The Circle (2) - S2-E2

Corrected entry: The rescue team is taken down the Bajor in a Federation runabout, capable of beaming up only two people at once, as established in a previous episode. Yet when the team finds Major Kira, Sisko calls to Chief O'Brien to beam them up. All five of them are promptly energized at the same time.

Correction: A basic runabout can be upgraded in a number of ways to include more sensors, torpedo launchers & phasers. Whats to say they can't do the same with the transporters to hold more people?

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."
