- "this crew is due to stand down" - implies that they were all still on active service, or at the very least some kind of reserve status.
- "all that equipment we have onboard to record gaseous anomalies" - why would they have this equipment on board if all the Enterprise did was sit around in spacedock only to be dusted off for the occasional milk run?
- "a supply of Romulan ale on board" .... "one of the advantages of being a thousand light-years away from headquarters" - seems the Enterprise had been on a deep space mission relatively recently. Also if Romulan ale is so illegal then why have it sitting around in the ship if it's parked in Spacedock long-term?
- on the other hand, Spock has been acting as the Federation envoy to the Klingons, Scott just bought a boat, and Uhura was supposed to be heading up a seminar.
Lots of confusing information.
