For general discussion on this episode, visit the TNG forum at The Trek BBS.
If the second digit of each stardate on TNG represents the passage of one year, as has generally been assumed to be the case in the Next Generation-era series, Lwaxana Troi's log entries begin seventeen years before this episode, not thirty as Picard states. However, it is possible that length of actual time represented by the passage of stardates changes over time.
- I don't see how it "explains itself away." The person who added it was probably just trying to provide an explanation for the continuity error—something which is pretty common on Memory Alpha, "speculative" or not. Anyway, if you take way what comes after "However," it is a legitimate continuity issue, although it should say 37 years, not 30.--Antodav 04:26, February 9, 2010 (UTC)
Theme song heard by the Trois? Edit
This episode aired a while ago in Finland. I watched it with earplugs and heard music under the last phrase "mr. Homn saved it (the photo) in case you need it". Second hearing indicated that it was the TNG theme song.
If the Trois were eg. listening to radio while discussing those tragedic memories, is it worth mentioning, thatthis might be the first case in TNG canon when some of the leading characters actually listened (or heard) on-screen the series theme song?
Could this be verified? The episode aired twice the same day and both recordings had the song played in the background of the conversation. Is it problem in Finnish TV broadcasting. As far as I know they play the original soundtracks in Finnish commercial and national TV. No dubbing, only subtitles.
