Re: FC plothole? Why didn't the Borg create the vortex in the Delta Q?

^I never said anything about "making the episodes more dramatic." I was talking about the difference between inconsistencies that can be effectively rationalized in-universe and inconsistencies that are too problematical or too minor to be worth concocting a convoluted explanation for and are easier just to chalk up to dramatic license and lack of consistency between different writers/producers.

Also, what I'm saying is that I prefer to accept that going to warp inside a solar system is generally a bad thing, and that it's the shots where ships warp out directly from orbit that I prefer to perceive as inaccurate, as dramatic shorthand to substitute for a sequence of leaving orbit and impulse and then later engaging warp drive. So you're not actually disagreeing with me here.
