** The story gives a glimmer that Veidt's plan may yet at least be exposed, potentially mitigating its intended result, but the story ends before it can be explored. Of course, considering that his [[WellIntentionedExtremist goal was to prevent]] WorldWarIII, exposure of the plan at that point would [[ShootTheShaggyDog probably just make things worse]].

** In the episode, "The Sound of Her Voice", the crew of the Defiant races against time to rescue the sole survivor of a crashed Starfleet vessel. She's on a planet with a toxic atmosphere and she has a limited supply of the medicine that can counteract it. And they find out later that a good chunk of her medicine has been compromised, meaning they may not get there in time to save her even at max warp. When they finally find her, they find remains that have been dead for years. The planet's [[NegativeSpaceWedgie odd atmosphere]] caused a time warp that sent the survivors communications into the future and their's back to her. She was already dead by the time they first got her signal.
