Disappearing Koral? Edit
Data and Troi are with Koral in the briefing room as the mercenary team beams in to retrieve the artifact piece from Koral. After they grab it from Koral's person, Riker tries to kill "Galen", who turns on Riker and "kills" him instead, then the mercenary team beams out. After they are gone, when Data and Troi examine Riker to see that he is alive, Koral should have still been in the room watching them. It is unlikely that they would have let Koral become aware of the ruse, and it is equally unlikely that Koral somehow simply left the briefing room during the scuffle and returned to his shuttle unescorted. This would be a continuity error, as they forgot Koral was still in the room. Mal7798 02:12, 18 December 2008 (UTC)
Riker - Timescape Edit
- Riker's line, "It will take a little time to explain," is likely a reference to "Timescape", an earlier episode in which Picard says this to Riker. Troi and Data are as confused in this instance as Riker was when Picard said the same line to him.
- * A goof exists in this episode when the Enterprise is fired on by the mercenary ship. The starboard nacelle is shown being hit and damaged first, but Lieutenant Commander Worf mistakenly says the port nacelle is hit.
