Re: The stupidity in Booby Trap

Given how this episode has four credited writers, I wouldn't be surprised if some of the writers weren't all on the same page. One writer probably wrote all of the asteroid scenes while another wrote all of Picard's obsessive fascination with the ancient starship. One writer probably told another "Oh, don't forget that the crew have been spending time with an ancient, dead alien ship" and the other writer thought "Ah, so the ancient alien ship is the cause. Picard would want to destroy it" without realizing that parts of the story have Picard regarding the alien ship as a treasure.
