Re: VOY S6: Blink of an Eye

I just watched Blink of an eye again. I remember this episode well and it is one of my favorites. However I may have come across an enormous plothole and I chose to ignore it while I was watching the episode.
It was stated Voyager was caught in a geosynchronous orbit around the planet. That means it stays over one place all the time. And yes, we see Voyager as a star fixed in the same place in the heavens seen from the planet. However if Voyager was locked in this orbit, then it would have to be spinning as fast as the planet itself. Obviously it didn't, so Voyager must have moved in the heavens. And that begs the question if one second in space is a day on the planet, how fast would the stars be spinning in the heavens of the planet. I wish I almost hadn't noticed this, because the magic of the episode has lessened somewhat. If I am wrong I hope someone can correct me :-)
