Deliberate mistake: To fix the error of the Enterprise firing phasers from the torpedo bay, the Blu-ray version uses footage from "The Best of Both Worlds" to show phasers firing from the dorsal emitter. In doing so, they created a new goof; the planet El Adrel is not visible in the background during these shots.
Trivia: Another joke from the set designers: whenever someone is in the Jeffries Tubes, you will see several pipes on the walls labeled "GNDN" this stands for "Goes Nowhere, Does Nothing."
Question: Were people able to "lock" the Holodeck doors so that others couldn't just walk in on them? I don't recall an episode where the doors were locked that wasn't because of some malfunction. It seems like Lieutenant Barclay, for example, would either lock the doors during his "fantasies" or have some "fail-safe" that shuts the program off when being walked in on. Otherwise, it's just a really dumb thing to do (for him or anyone playing out a fantasy) knowing they could easily be caught.
