FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • During the experiment when Geordi and Timicin are trying to reignite the sun, Geordi consitently refers to temperatures in "degrees Kelvin", such as 220 million degrees Kelvin. This is incorrect. Temperatures should be given simply in Kelvin without further qualification. Geordi should have said 220 million Kelvin.

    • When Lwaxana and Deanna Troi are talking in Lwaxana's quarters (near the end of the episode), note the boom microphone you can see in the mirror as Lwaxana walks away from it the first time.

    • Screen Display: 4077
      This number, which is very visible on one of the displays Timicin is working on, is an obvious reference to David Ogden Stiers' work on M*A*S*H.
