  • Trivia

    • In the episode "Datalore," it was established that Data cannot use contractions. However, when the three Datas are trying to determine which is in the correct time continuum, the middle one says, "It's me!"

    • Despite Worf being the new chief of security, he is still wearing a red uniform.

    • After Picard gives the computer at the holodeck the info for the program he enters, and after a while we find two woman talking and one of them says "he's not coming" which would seem like what really happened on that day where Picard doesn't show up. How would the computer know to include that detail?

    • The Eiffel Tower keeps changing positions in the holodeck.

    • When Data dives for cover against the laser defense grid, something that looks suspiciously like Brent Spiner's wallet falls to the ground.

    • If time looped itself during Picard's fencing duel, how would he know it? Everything, his senses, his brain, etc., would be exactly as they were before the loop began. (in other episodes with time loops it took them several "loops" before they knew anything was amiss.)

    • Although Picard requested the exact day and conditions that Jenice was supposed to meet with him at the Paris restaurant, there's no sign of rain, puddles, etc., even though Jenice says it was raining the whole day.

    • Picard has to explain to the computer what "1500 hours" means.

    • When Data beams down to the lab, LaForge stresses that the coordinates are "exactly as the Professor specified," but when Data arrives he has to walk to the lab, which is on the other side of a room full of laser beams that the Professor forgot to mention. Was the Professor trying to kill him?
