I always hated this episode. I even had a thread about it recently. No way they can "get it right," as Picard said, because the things that went wrong were things that happen naturally, over the course of 24 hours like the samples or beards growing. It's not a tight story at all, though it pretends to be.
I don't buy your logic. New samples can always be planted. Beards can be manipulated. Anything that triggered questioning the first time around can always be altered for the second go-around. You don't have to remove every scrap of possible evidence. You just have to remove the things that triggered an investigation the first go-around.
That's the ticket, right there. too many people get obsessed with the notion that they could never perfectly cover their tracks. They don't have to. They need only remove the majority of conditions that brought about suspicion. The average group of people doesn't go around looking for every possible conspiracy, unless instigated by abnormalities
