Geordi says early on he puts up with the discomfort of the VISOR because it has superior visual range, seeing multiple spectrums. Ocular implants at the time were either inferior image quality or too risky of a procedure and not reversible in case of failure. Obviously those risks were eventually overcome because he did get implants in the movies.

Even though the Federation didn't need money internally since they had replicators for all resources, they still kept precious matetials on hand to barter with other races. Precious metals, food, medical supplies or repair work were all traded.

Is it really a problem that Troi has an accent? There are a lot of accents. Should all Betazoids have the same accent as each other? All humans don't. But even if they did, Deanna's father was human and maybe he had the same accent.

I'm sure the Cytherian technology was designed to erase itself once the trip was made. I'm sure they wouldn't want it falling into the hands of more primitive races.

Why didn't Scotty remember what happened to Kirk? Real answer: because Generations hadn't been written yet. Story answer: he was addled from 80 years in a transporter. Maybe he remembered later.

Is "whatever happened to Pulaski" really a problem? She got reassigned. Or more to the point Crusher's season 2 assignment ended and she was able to come back.

I do not understand why Data cannot use contractions. They are a part of common speech, they are well-defined by the rules of language. He even says "cannot" which is a contraction, is it not?
