Removed Edit

  • "The name Thomas means twin. It is unknown if this is a coincidence or not."

Removed. If we don't know, then leave it blank. --TribbleFurSuit 08:58, 29 January 2009 (UTC)

I removed the following, per MA:NIT:
  • * A little error made its way to the final version. In minute 16, when Riker shouts "I gave you an order...", one can see where the picture is joined. It is evident at the bottom at Riker's arm.
For this note, the first bit is more relevant to Thomas Riker, and the second bit duplicated a previous note:
  • * It has not been revealed what post Lieutenant Riker held aboard the Potemkin, but script materials suggested he might have taken over the operations officer position in an unused storyline.

How can 2 Rikers come from the matter of one? This seems a big science contradiction The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

As I understand it, they didn't truly come from the matter of one as much as they did from the same pattern. Basically the one Riker is converted into energy, which is split into two patterns with half as much energy. Then each receives extra energy (from the distortion and the transporter respectively) which means that when they're converted back to matter, they're whole. I expect they would have discussed this in the forums. 03:19, August 31, 2011 (UTC)

The first minute... Edit

Did anyone notice the song Riker was playing on the trombone at the beginning of the episode? I believe it was "I Remember You."

(I also found another coincidence. If that was the song Riker was playing, it is odd because Brent Spiner came out with an album recently (Dreamland) and one of the songs on the album is "I remember you" . Coincedence?) -- 07:57, April 27, 2010 (UTC)

The song indeed is "I Remember You" by Victor Schertzinger) The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

"Irregular" Uniform (Deanna) Edit

It is the first appearance of Deanna Troi in her "irregular" uniform since "Chain of Command, Part I" (not counting "Ship in a Bottle" where she was actually as a holodeck simulation).

Not true. She also appeared in her casual uniform in "Starship Mine" so this is an ill informed fact. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Cilmeron (talk • contribs).

You're right. I removed the sentence. Tom (talk) 10:52, July 9, 2013 (UTC)

Continuity Error Edit

The story states that Will Riker was promoted (presumably from Lt. to Lt. Cmdr) for his actions in the evacuation of Nervala IV. As both Riker incarnations were involved in that evacuation, shouldn't Thomas Riker been properly addressed as Lt. Cmdr? 15:43, August 12, 2013 (UTC)

This isn't really the forum to ask plot questions, but Thomas was not yet promoted to that rank. 31dot (talk) 20:22, August 12, 2013 (UTC)
