I'm sure they would have wanted to, but it's made abundantly clear at the end of the episode that it's not the Federation's warp enhancements that made the jump possible, it was the Traveller's abilities PICARD: (to Kosinski) What did you do? RIKER: It wasn't him. It never was. It was his assistant. PICARD: What are you talking about? RIKER:...

There isn't currently an answer for this in canon, but there is some reasonable speculation that can be made: "I doubt they would allow her to bring her own weapon on board." There isn't anything to say that they wouldn't. The Federation may have an equivalent to the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution that says that its citizens have the ...

According to the TOS Vulcan's Soul novels: Exiles and Epiphany, Romulan followers of Surak who possessed the telepathic abilities among their kind were banished to Remus. The less answered question is why Romulans do not have telepathy. Fan theories, and theories in-universe, have included: the Romulans lacking the mental discipline. Romulan emotion ...

Starfleet one-piece jumpsuits seem to come in two flavours; Front zipping for main character men and rear zipping for main character females. That being the case, the obvious way to go to the toilet would be to zip it down to the waist (or lower back), lower the jumpsuit past your waist to your ankles, void your bowels/bladder, use the three seashells and ...

Picard can be arrogant, and doesn't even notice. Here's the transcript of the relevant part of the scene: [Enterprise-E bridge] CRUSHER: So much for the Enterprise-E. PICARD: We barely knew her. CRUSHER: Think they'll build another one? PICARD: Plenty of letters left in the alphabet. ...Mister Worf. I regret some of the things I said to you ...

Personally I think that Picard regretted everything that he said which made him too ashamed to even admit that he had regrets because he should have known better. Picard is a great captain, but let's face it, he is not flawless and his arrogance sometimes get's the better of him (something that Q noted a few times over the course of the series). And ...

Picard has been depicted on screen during the following time periods. This is a Community Wiki answer so that anyone can update it during ST:Picard, or for any times that may have been missed. 3.5 billion years in the past (All Good Things) 1893 (Time's Arrow part II) 2063 (ST:First Contact) 2327 (TNG:Tapestry flashback) 2364 through 2370 (TNG show timeline)...

Almost certainly recreated. This IO9 article talks about Picard's admiral uniform, which has not been seen before in canon (meaning they made it) Then there's the fact that Brent Spiner is... well... Here's original TNG Data And 30 years later, there's more of him to love. Here he is in Picard I doubt he would fit in uniforms from 1997 (TNG end) or 2002 (...

If we accept the Awakening period as the time of the split, this isn't long enough for anything resembling speciation to occur, especially between peoples who apparently had at least primitive forms of star travel. A small amount of genetic drift may have occurred (like that between different subspecies of animals), but it wouldn't be enough to call them ...

They're nearly identical In TOS Enterprise Incident, Chekov is tasked with locating Spock aboard a Klingon D7 staffed by Romulans. It takes Chekov several minutes to do this, commenting about how similar they are. He had this trouble even considering that Spock is half human, and thus should be even easier to find than a full-blooded Vulcan. In the same ...

Ralph Offenhouse appears in a later ST.TNG novel (sorry, don't recall the title). By this point he has become the Federation's best person to negotiate with the Ferengi, due to his prior 20'th century business acumen.

Do you think the Federation just forgot about that? Why would you think that? The fact that it wasn't discussed explicitly in TNG doesn't mean it was ignored or forgotten. Just not featured in an episode. Or would they try to figure out how to replicate the experiment? Maybe. Those brainiacs at the Daystrom institute's Mars college (where Lea Brahms ...

Length of assimilation - Seven of Nine spent 18 years in the Borg Collective. It is possible that beyond the initial assimilation a drone's biological components are only gradually replaced. Assimilation is often an endeavor that involves millions of individuals. It makes sense to only assimilate them to a point where they can be put to use on low risk jobs ...

This is already a trend in naval warships Compare a WWII destroyer -- 1500 tons displacement, crew of 300 - to a modern Aegis destroyer like the JMSDF Kongo, 10,000 tons displacement, crew of 300. Both with the same core mission: ASW and light surface combat. A World War II admiral would take one look at the Kongo and say "Cruiser". (If the admiral didn'...

Because actors are not required to be their characters, they just are playing them. Having different backgrounds than their characters is not a problem, or you could just film documentaries, not fiction. The contrast between Picard's French origins and his British accent could be one of the most evident examples, but I don't think that this could be ...

As I rewatch the series, this came to mind. On Graham Norton Show, Stewart said they tried a French accent while speaking English, and he sounded like Clousseau. You can actually find a clip of the intro (Space, The Final Frontier...) both on the GNS and as the opening sequence. I can accept a combo of both UT and who knows what language will be like in a ...
