Description

Set in the 24th century and decades after the adventures of the original crew of the starship Enterprise, this new series is the long-awaited successor to the original Star Trek (1966). Under the command of Captain Jean-Luc Picard, the all new Enterprise NCC 1701-D travels out to distant planets to seek out new life and to boldly go where no one has gone before.

Whole series Errors and Explanations

Internet Movie Database

Audio/visual unsynchronised

  1. Throughout the series you can often hear Majel Barrett, the actress who performs the voice of the computer, taking breaths between lines. Obviously a human actress would have to do this, but a computer with an electronically generated voice would not, as it wouldn't breathe. This could be a deliberate effect, intended to put people at ease about verbally interacting with a computer.

Character error

  1. It is claimed that Data can't use contractions (Can't, Isn't, Don't, etc) yet there are several instances throughout the series where he does. One such example is heard in Encounter at Farpoint, where Data uses the word "Can't" while the Enterprise is being chased by Q's "ship".This is likely due to a minor, intermittent fault in the voice control unit – possibly a corrupted subroutine in the operating program.
  2. The character of Q repeatedly uses - and never correctly pronounces - the French expression "mon capitaine" when addressing Picard. He is arroganet enough - at least in the early enounters - to beleive he can get away with it, and probably continued to use the wrong pronounciation out of habit.

Factual errors

  1. Very often star streaks are seen backward. Ignoring tunneling (something that would have been hard to do in the late 80's) when moving faster than light speed stars would look streaked as depicted, but they would be blue as you approach the star and red after you pass. Sometimes this is depicted correctly but others it is seen the other way around. Wouldn't that depend on the type of star?

Plot holes

  1. Apparently the Enterprise's shuttle bays are left unattended; there are many instances in TNG - as well as other ST series like Voyager - in which we hear of an "unathorized shuttle launch." It's extremely likely a ship with a military command structure would have personnel stationed in the shuttle bays at all times. However, it would make it more difficult for the writers to have someone get around the guards somehow, so it's an understandable omission. Perhaps they only have the bays occupied when they are actually being used.
