So... I have been watching some shows - a lot of Trek - and more recently Enterprise. I am constantly annoyed by failures of logistics. I can take the pretend science and all that. But I am brought out of the suspension of disbelief by logistical inconsistencies. "The Breach". ENT, Episode 2x21. Production number: 047. First aired: 23 April 2003. The crew sends down a team to locate 3 Denobulan geologists. who don't show up on sensors. It takes them nearly a day and a half to locate them, and one of their team suffers a serious injury. My question is: why didn't then down several probes instead. They had these target drones that they used for phase pistol practice. There was a lot of other technology shown in various episodes. Why didn't they just send down a dozen or so probes?
