remove nitpick Edit

In order to explain why the crew will later be able to use the Holodeck despite the ship having limited power, it is explained in his episode that power cannot be drawn from the Holodecks aboard USS Voyager. However this instead creates another plot hole, as there is no explanation given as to why Starfleet would design the Holodeck to be incompatible with the rest of the ship (especially given the relative ease with which the crew are able to adapt alien/future technologies into the ship's systems in later episodes).

  • Tuvok is shown wearing lieutenant commander pips. He doesn't assume the rank, though, until much later in the series.
  • Tom Paris is also seen wearing full lieutenant rank pips, but he doesn't even reach that grade throughout the entire Voyager series. This was eventually corrected in "Cathexis".

Production errors. – Morder 08:22, 13 August 2008 (UTC)

Isn't he seen wearing Lt Commander pips in "Caretaker"? I know he is in "Eye of the Needle". --OuroborosCobra talk 08:30, 13 August 2008 (UTC)

Well. I removed them mainly because of wording and labeled them Production Errors. If they're wrong or right they're nitpicks of something seen in the show. – Morder 08:42, 13 August 2008 (UTC)

Of course it's a production error. What else could it be? Voyager ran out of rank insignia, so Tuvok had to wear the wrong one? An error is an error is an error, and calling it an error can't be wrong. Even if the production staff decided to demote Tuvok to avoid a rank conflict between him and Chakotay---which would be totally irrelevant for the first officer's superiority---it still is a violation of continuity without proper explanation and, hence, an error.

Where Silence Has Lease Edit

Is it worth mentioning that the can't-get-away-from-the-singularity part somehow resembles the can't-get-away-from-the-hole-in-space part of the TNG episode "Where Silence Has Lease"? The resemblance is probably to vague. The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) at 6 August 2015.

We only reference similarities when they have a valid production source. Otherwise, it's just fan speculation/opinion. If you can find an official source for the similarities then go ahead and add it. --| TrekFan Open a channel 16:13, August 6, 2015 (UTC)
