...how you can watch a series of Star Trek right through, and not see a single glimpse of a character, but as soon as they become a necessary generic person, they somehow intergrate into everything that's going on as if they have always done so? For example, Mr. Barclay virtually never features in a standard episode of TNG. But when he gets a story line, he's suddenly helping Geordi run engineering, he's present at senior staff briefings, he's in Ten Forward with the senior staff, he's EVERYWHERE. Yet the next episode, you never see him. There are various others. Oh, by the way, I left the thread title generic so you could post your own niggles.

heh, isn't it amazing that whenever Voyager needs a shuttle, they have one (even though shuttles were destroyed in previous episodes)?
Or how about those repair jobs. You watch one episode and voyagers port necel gets blown into a million pieces of space dust. Then in the next episode they have fixed every thing. Or Enterprises fixes in the Expanse.
I didn't really notice Enterprise being repaired at all, they weren't all that messed up before Azati Prime. After that episode, then they pretty much left the damage be and didn't really do anything bu add more after.
I agree with the statement about Voyager and its shuttles, where did they all come from? Do they have a factory on board or something?
'Dreadnought[DK']heh, isn't it amazing that whenever Voyager needs a shuttle, they have one (even though shuttles were destroyed in previous episodes)?
Voyager has special shuttle bays that can rapidly build shuttles. As for the Enterprise, it holds A LOT of people, you think you are going to get to see 1,000 or so an episode? Probably not. However, Voyager is another story. With 150 people, it would be kind of hard NOT to see Ensign Wildman or Crewman Lon Suder. There is just no excuse for that.
If you're talking about the heretic Enterprise, there's no way you could cram 1,000 people into that without having them lined up against the walls. It's tiny.
And as for Voyager's shuttles, didn't you notice the giant 'Shuttle O' Matic' shuttle dispenser at the back of the shuttlebay?
No, I am talking about the Enterprise D. Not NX 01.
Oh. Well in that case you're right, 1,014 is the number for that I think, give or take.
Plus probably another 700 or so in emergencies. Even more if you start stuffing 20 people in every shuttle. :D
Well, it's 1,014 who are SUPPOSED to be on board. It has an evacuation capacity of somewhere in the region of 15,000. Guess they really would be stuffing people in shuttles if it came to that :D.
