Re: Favorite blatant contradictions

In "Nothing Human," they end up deleting a hologram based on a Cardassian Mengele because his methods were developed by torturing humanoids.

In countless episodes, they use Borg tech from Seven that was developed by torturing humanoids.

Re: Favorite blatant contradictions

So to be fair, and I'm with you on this one... They should have wiped her memory back to the day before the Borg turned up and extract every unit of Borg Hardware from Anika until she has to live in an iron Lung like Neelix did after the Vidiians took his lungs in The Phage or a cuubersome life support chair on wheels like Pike?

So if this was the case... Kim wouldn't have been so intimidated and have slept with her in Revulsion when she demanded he take his pants off?

OH.

He was revolted by her?

Name of the frakking episode.

What they did to Hirogens was far, far worse

Nope.

Destroying the hologram was stupid.

You know, if some method of curing cancer had come out of turning some of my dad's family into lampshades, I sure as hell wouldn't want them to destroy that cure simply because it was developed using nefarious means.

Seriously.

Re: Favorite blatant contradictions

Logically I do agree, but sometimes emotions blur the subject.

The NAZIs invented snorkels.

Can you imagine the world if we took all the snorkels and burnt them and then refused to produce any more?

I don't float. Seriously I just walk on the bottom of swimming pools. I'm very dense, and I can't hold my breath very long.

It's fricking dangerous.

If it wasn't for NAZI Gemany I would never dare swim in any water above my nipples.

80 percent of the time, I do make the jump over the swimming pool without turning my wagon into a submarine.

Re: Favorite blatant contradictions

I admit, harping on minor contradictions even gets folks hating the really good VOY stories.

Look at "Living Witness". Great story, but all anyone harps on is how "It contradicts how the Doctor can't be backed up!"

Well if they had planned ahead they could have had a line in an earlier episode, saying they had found a way to back up the EMH. But alas that would be to hard.

But they are constantly saying how something or another simply can't be done ... and then they figure out a way to do it.
