Mendon Edit

Please note that the episode specifically states that Mendon was on the Enterprise as part of the Exchange program, not because he joined Starfleet; thus, there is no contradiction. Wesley specifically points out that Mordock is at the Academy. 31dot (talk) 13:24, November 21, 2012 (UTC)

If Mendon is not a member of Star Fleet, why is he wearing a Star Fleet Uniform? In "Datalore" from Season One, Data explains to Lore that a Star Fleet Uniform shows that the wearer has passed four years at the academy. It's possible that Mendon put on the uniform as part of the exchange program, but if that's the case, why did Commander Riker not wear a Klingon Uniform for his exchange program aboard the Klingon ship? Either Mendon was a member of Star Fleet, or Benzite crews wear Star Fleet Uniforms contrary to the given career path to obtain one. The preceding unsigned comment was added by DFW333 (talk • contribs).

I unfortunately don't have the answers to your questions; I can only tell you what was said in the episode, and that's what we go by.

Data's statement on his uniform was just his own views; I think Miles O'Brien and all other enlisted personnel would disagree, as they have not been to the Academy. 31dot (talk) 12:53, November 22, 2012 (UTC)

Enlisted personnel are a different matter, Mendon was an officer with the rank of ensign, thus, in the very least, the four years at the academy, as cited by Data in 'Datalore', should apply to his wearing a Star Fleet ensign's uniform. This does create a discrepancy in the continuity of the episode with relation to dialog to either the 'Datalore' or 'Coming of Age' episodes and I believe it should be noted as such.

Wearing a uniform doesn't mean one attended Starfleet Academy; nor does having a particular rank mean that either. They probably gave Mendon a rank equivalent to whatever rank he had in the Benzite service he was in. The fact remains that Mendon did not actually join Starfleet, as was specifically said. 31dot (talk) 00:01, November 25, 2012 (UTC)
