I completely don't get the opening scene of "Facets" episode.
How could Jake stand (?) outside a runabout and knock its window, even if it was just a holosuite simulation? What kind of space flight simulation is that, if someone can "walk into" space you're flying through? How can the computer simulate space, through which a runabout is flying, if it was simulating solid ground, on which Jake was walking, at the same time?
What am I missing?
