Error in Trivia? Edit
The trivia about actors and sword training seems unlikely, as Patrick Stewart should have had some training in swordplay during his stage years, particularly when doing Shakespeare. Also, if my memory serves me well, didn't he do some swordplay in Dune, near the beginning? Is there a source for this information? – The preceding unsigned comment was added by 184.108.40.206 (talk).
- This was stated by Marina Sirtis on the special features (Mission Overview: Year Four) of the TNG Season 4 DVD set. --Jörg 21:29, 21 May 2006 (UTC)
- You raise an interesting point about Stewart's experience. A possible explanation is that Sirtis specifically mentions fencing, which is a particular for of swordplay, most likely different than the stage combat Stewart is likely to have participated in. – The preceding unsigned comment was added by 220.127.116.11 (talk).
Data Hurt By ArrowEdit
I think a note should appear somewhere about Data being stuck by an arrow. In "First Contact" Data was sprayed by a gun and the bullets bounced off him. (18.104.22.168 04:39, March 6, 2010 (UTC))
- A few things to keep in mind. First, this episode took place in a Q fantasy, where normal rules need not apply. Data's hair was changed as well. Second, Data is known to upgrade himself, in obvious examples such as the emotion chip, and other less obvious ones such as where we are told he cannot float in "Descent," but has acquired the capability by "Insurrection." --OuroborosCobra talk 08:11, March 6, 2010 (UTC)

Klingon blade weapon? Edit
During Q's visit in Picard's quarters there is a knife/dagger on the table next to the door. It looks like a Klingon weapon. Anyone an idea which one this is? Possible a kut'luch or a mevak although I cannot find a difference between these two weapons. Tom 20:14, November 10, 2011 (UTC)
