Absolute Candor - S1-E4

Character mistake: Dr. Agnes Jurati, one of the Federation leading scientists, is bored during the hyperspace travel, and so she chats a bit with the captain. While she gives her quirky speech, she casually mentions that "there are over 3 billion stars in our galaxy." She's not wrong, technically, but the number of stars in our galaxy is estimated between 100 and 400 billion. She is way off. (00:08:40)

Suggested correction: Two things. You state that she's not wrong, which she isn't. The fact that she chose an odd turn of phrase doesn't make it a mistake. Plus, you reference the number of 'galaxies' in our galaxy but I am guessing this is just a typo.

Oh duh, yes. It's absolutely a typo, I'll see that it's fixed. And well, 'not technically wrong' was just me being cheeky. You know that making a statement off by 100 times would be classified as a mistake in any situation.

Et in Arcadia Ego: Part 2 - S1-E10

Trivia: The ships that Riker arrives with are all identical, explained away with the line "I've got a fleet of them at my back." That line's delivered without seeing Riker's face, because it was recorded afterwards. The effects work was only completed shortly before the episode was released, and they didn't have time to create a variety of ships, leading to this "shortcut."

Question: How do the "door transporters" outside Starfleet work? People just seem to walk straight into them and vanish, a) faster than normal transporters, and b) without any indication they're controlling where they're going. There's no sign saying where each door connects to, are people just hoping for the best?

Answer: My guess is that they go to 1 place and they can't chose where to go. Like a highway without exits, you just end up where the highway stops.
