Would you consider the Royale to be an example of sticking to the script even though the details of it are completely contradicting to what we are seeing?

Data: He's been dead for 283 years sir. The lack of any advanced decomposition is due to the sterile environment.

And yet, it's a freaking skeleton. Why didn't they just say it was a skeleton? Why does the dialogue imply that we should be seeing a somewhat preserved body when we're looking at a skeleton with skin flakes underneath it?
I always assumed a nearly 300 year old body decomposing in non-sterile environment would look a heck of a lot worse that what we see in the episode. Never dawned on me that was a mistake of any kind.
Yeah me either. In reality, after that many years, it would be a lot worse.
