    I was watching Yesterday's Enterprise and I noticed something funny. At the end of the episode when Guinan and Geordi are sitting down and Guinan asks Geordi to tell her about Tasha Yar...it appears that Geordi is wearing the same uniform from the alternate timeline. Look at the end of his sleeves and his collar. Was that an intentional move, or just a blooper?? Sadly, I'm not able to post a screen shot of it, but be that as it may, I thought it was interesting.

    Yes, I think that's been known for quite a while.

    Hopefully they can digitally edited that out or something for the Blu-Ray.

    I didn't know about that particular blooper, thanks. :cool:
    Hope it's not edited out of the HD version of the episode.

    Why don't you want it edited? :confused:

    They would simply be fixing a mistake if they did it.

    Actually it might have made a good image, if the camera pulled back from Geordie and Guinan and showed that everyone was wearing the war universe uniforms like Geordie; and then they stuck with it throughout the series run until the new uniforms were introduced.

    The correct explanation is that Geordi heard the story from guinan while they were talking, liked the description so much that he ran off and replicated himself a uniform with those cuffs. Then he went back to Guinan to finish their conversation.

    Of course, when Picard found out, he revoked Geordi's holodeck privledges (and we know how Geordi can only find a date there) so Geordi reluctantly went back to the regular uniform.

    Really, it's in the script.

    yes...

    Not answering for Gore-ac, but I also wouldn't want that blooper edited out. When I buy such discs, what I want is what was originally shown. I don't want something edited to fix such mistakes, because those mistakes are part of the actual show I got to love, warts and all. Anyway, such mistakes do tend to make good talking points, such as this thread. The time to fix mistakes is when they're making the show, not twenty years afterwards. Once the show is out, then the mistake becomes canon. ;)

    So, just keep the mistake. In fact, put an arrow pointing at it with big letters saying, "We messed up here!" ;)

    Worf's beard is right! I too believe the episodes should be preserved the way they were made, mistakes and all, rather than being constantly tinkered with like the Star Wars movies.

    It's also time and money better spent elsewhere on this project.

    I appreciate you posting a link to the picture very much. Actually I posted this because I actually wondered, as silly as it may be, was this done on purpose as a way to remind us that all things are possible....if that makes any sense. I mean technically, both timelines have been slightly affected...yes? No?

    It might have made for a slightly chilling scene, like we're briefly looking at yet a third universe. The decor of ten forward could have been different as well.

    Actually never spotted this at all, but have to say, I enjoy people bringing things like this up, opens for plenty more discussion regards a great episode and makes you think about it a lot more in a different way.

    Genuinely hope it wasnt a mistake and was deliberate to leave people guessing and wondering at the end.

    No. The timeline at the end of the episode is the same one as the timeline at the beginning of it. Put back the way it was all along.

    Part of the charm of any given work of art is the flaws in it.

    I've always assumed it was intentional. It's hard to believe that with the number of people involved in a production like that, no one noticed that Burton was wearing the wrong uniform.

    Then again, if they were rushed for time and the scene was shot in between alt-universe scenes ...

    Maybe the scene was originally intended to be used earlier in the episode, but the director realized in the editing room that it would make a great book end to the episode.

    Not exactly. In the beginning, Starfleet didn't know what had happened to the E-C. In the end, Starfleet did, as later evidenced by "Redemption". Yar's antics in the past apparently made a small but significant difference after all.

    So the episode features at least three different realities, one in line with preceding TNG, one in line with succeeding TNG, and one involving a past that never was the past of either of the other two. One does wonder if the final scene with LaForge and Guinan could be taken to represent a fourth...

    That is, Picard in at least two realities would be asking Guinan "Is something wrong?", but in one of those, he would be wearing the high collar and the cuffs, and so would his Chief Engineer. And we'd cut to that one for the very final shot. (Naturally, the LaForge of that universe would be better versed in Tasha Yar, and thus a better source of information for Guinan - but Guinan of that universe should be well versed in her, too.)

    Could be anywhere really...
    Great episode
    I also noted that a lot of crew in that alternate universe also wore the uniform from seasons one and two.

    Crazy kids stuff eh?

    Outrageous it is! :rolleyes:
