** Is it said how many time has been since he was left there? No technology can survive millions of years, even the Federation's beacon warning other ships of the danger on the planet will someday be gone. On the other hand the source that the beings where perfect was Armus itself which can be a UnreliableNarrator, we as an audience don't really know what happen, Armus can be just lying or maybe is crazy for that moment.

* In "Skin Of Evil," the villain-of-the-week, Armus, is a by-product of a species of "dazzling, perfect beings" cleansing themselves of all that's "evil." Once shed of him, they pretty much dump him on some remote planet to spend eternity in isolation. Bafflingly, these "perfect beings" don't even bother to take measures to insure no innocent people will blunder across him and end up at his mercy. Even if they didn't want to get their hands dirty destroying him, they should've at least had the decency to warn everyone else in the galaxy to steer clear of that system. Hell, It's Captain Picard and the Federation who finally do what the "perfect ones" should've done in the first place and have the planet quarantined; after a valued member of the Enterprise crew is killed by the oil slick with an attitude.

Bafflingly, Baffling though, these "perfect beings" don't even bother to take the most basic measures to insure no innocent people will blunder across him and end up at his mercy. Even if we assume they didn't want to get their hands dirty destroying him, him (which probably would've been the best thing for all concerned), they should've at least had the decency to warn everyone else in the galaxy to steer clear of that star system. Hell, It's Captain Picard and the Federation who finally do what the "perfect ones" should've done in the first place and have put the planet quarantined; after under quarantine; ''after a valued member of the Enterprise crew is killed by the this oil slick with an attitude.''

* So what happened to Troi and Riker's telepathic link from ''Encounter at Farpoint?'' I can think of a dozen times off the top of my head when that would have come in useful.

*** There wouldn't be any reason to know ''any'' of the crew as the ship was supposed to be deserted when they arrived. They weren't infiltrating, they were break-and-entering.

::: So part of the problem is that there's a chance that at least 20 decks--that's the ''entire'' saucer section, where the majority of the crew, including the civilians and children are housed--that might not even hear the order to abandon ship. Then there's time frame; I don't know how long it takes to evacuate a ''Galaxy''-class starship, but with 1,014 people aboard the ''Enterprise'', it's safe to say that 10 seconds will not be nearly enough time.
