Re: TNG S4: Remember Me

Always enjoyed this one back in the 90s when originally watching and rewatching TNG episodes as a teenager. In my mind, it's associated with the other time loop/alternate reality/someone cut off from the rest of the crew in some way stories like Cause and Effect, Parallels (Worf there, Crusher here... love watching those 2 back to back especially), Timescape, and the Next Phase in particular. A great fivesome, those.

I just happened to turn on BBC America a day or two ago when this was airing and something struck me near the end that I don't believe I had ever noticed before in at least 3 or 4 previous watchthroughs:

The Traveler and Wesley are hard at work trying to use the force (apparently) AND science together to rescue Dr. Crusher, but in the meantime, the Enterprise is going to dock in the exact same position it was located at during the initial warp bubble experiment gone wrong that disappeared Beverly. I think someone on the bridge even says they're in the same position as before after they finish docking. The implication being that by being in the same exact spatial location, opening a bridge/portal/doorway to the warp bubble to allow Crusher to leap out will be easier or possible in the first place or make the connection stronger or something.

There's just one problem: the space station itself is of course not in the same place as before. I believe they show it over a moon or planet, which means it's in some sort of orbit. And whether polar, geosynch, or whatever other orbital variety, there's no way the celestial body itself is in the same spot as it was when they were first docked there. Not to mention the solar system and galaxy themselves also being in motion, so even if the space station was keeping itself "still" in a specific spot in that system with constant RCS corrections, that still wouldn't check out.

Just a little nitpick, but one I had a fun time suddenly noticing, and after reading all the comments in here, it doesn't seem anyone else has mentioned it. Kicking myself for not noticing it years ago on a previous rewatch, though!

Re: VOY S3: Favorite Son

Just rewatched this yesterday and was amused to notice "that other Taresian guy" was played by a young Patrick Fabian (better known these days as the actor who plays Howard Hamlin on Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul).

Made the episode way more fun the second time around!
