Explaining errors in Star Trek Wiki
According to Memory Alpha's original in Universe Timeline, the story sequence is: Friendship One : Natural Law : Shattered.


Chakotay's and Seven's shuttle crashes into an isolated region on the planet Ledos, home to the primitive Ventu. The two try to avoid contact with the indigenous population, but are soon discovered by the Ventu who treat Chakotay's injury and help Seven find the shuttle's deflector. The Ventu habitat is surrounded by an energy barrier, built by unknown advanced aliens to prevent cultural contamination by the Ledosians. After Seven and Chakotay have been beamed up together with the shuttle debris through a deflector modification, the Ledosians demand to study the Ventu, but Janeway decides to seal the barrier again. However, Seven is apprehensive that the Ledosians scanned her deflector modifications and may construct a device to disable the barrier.

Errors and Explanations

Nit Central

  1. Corey Hines on Tuesday, May 01, 2001 - 6:55 pm: When their impulse engines go out, they suggest going to warp. In a planetary atmosphere, that wouldn't be a good thing I think. Maybe they actually intend to use the warp drive to power the impulse drive.
  2. Would think the combages would be a bit more tough than to have it break with a rock. That would depend on 1) the composition of the rock and 2) the amount of energy used to bring the rock down on the badge.
  3. Thought this episode would have Seven and Chakotey getting intimate, since they were alone for a while and Seven was attracted to him from Human Error. Josh G. on Tuesday, May 01, 2001 - 6:58 pm: I thought they would get together too, but, well, maybe in the finale.
  4. Rene on Tuesday, May 01, 2001 - 7:57 pm: I might be wrong about this, but didn't Seven lose a tricorder and never took it back? JackKnight on Tuesday, May 01, 2001 - 10:22 pm: Yeah, that was her tricorder she dropped down that hole/off that cliff when she tripped. That's why she gets lost and later takes Chakotay's, saying, "I lost mine". I presume it got beamed up with all the other bits and pieces while the energy shield was down.
  5. Chuckles is developing an infection- doesn't that bag contain any iodine or penicilin? Alternatively, I would assume a science tricorder could find some local equivalent. I mean, that is what tricorders do, after all- tell what the composition of stuff is. Karen Delano on Wednesday, May 02, 2001 - 7:16 pm: Don't they teach basic first aid at starfleet academy?
  6. PaulG on Wednesday, May 02, 2001 - 8:32 pm: Janeway tells Paris she is sending an encrypted message. However, he reads it almost instantly. If an encrypted message can be translated in real-time, why not always send encrypted messages? And what makes this particular situation special that it requires encryption? aifix on Wednesday, May 02, 2001 - 9:04 pm: Paul -- I thought the same thing, then realized the encryption was to keep the people on the planet from reading it -- his de-encryption decoded it instantly.
