Does anyone remember the episode where Wesley is competing against a bunch of other kids to get acceptance into Starfleet Academy? There each are tested in a variety of things and in the end have to overcome a challenge that is unique to them. Anyway, that's not my point, in the end, they are only allowed to choose one candidate. This begs the question, why do they only allow one person entry to the academy? Was this a plot hole constructed to keep Wesley on the ship and in the series, because it seems that every time he tries to leave something happens. (For example, he is supposed to leave again, but the ship that takes the cadettes won't wait for him, but he's just solved this great mystery of communication through morse code in the comm fuzz and can't leave just then.) Anyone have any comments to help clear it up, am I remembering the circumstances wrong?
