You'll find the answers to hundreds of questions like these within the pages of The Nitpicker's Guide - minor mishaps, flubs and such that in no way interfered with your enjoyment of the show.
Think back to the premier episode, "Encounter at Farpoint": Did you notice that Captain Picard called a "supplemental" log entry "supplementary," or that the computer had a different voice in the shows that followed (actually, the computer's voice changed several times over the years). And did you pick up on the fact that Riker and Troi stopped communicating telepathically? That's just the start of the good-natured nitpicking going on here!
Through Phil Farrand's ardent attention to detail, this unique guide traces the evolution of STAR TREK: The Next Generation - not just trivia, though there's plenty of that, but plot synopses and inconsistencies, equipment oddities, production problems, even great lines-like, "It's difficult to work in a group when you're omnipotent" (Q in the Third Season's "Deja Q") - and more!
In short, as entertaining as it is enlightening, The Nitpicker's Guide for Next Generation Trekkers is definitely not just for nitpickers!« less
