Deleted the following Natter that violated Example Indentation.

Late to the Punchline
  • This creates a Series Continuity Error, considering Data can understand (if not entirely appreciate) humour as early as the first season's end.
    • He'd understood the principles that underlie human humor, on an intellectual level. It's not until he has emotions that he can grasp how funny the joke was.

Wham Line
  • Even earlier for Picard. When he has the e-mail sent to the holodeck, you can see his face change. Troi's reaction shows the information hit like the proverbial ton of bricks.

Artistic License Physics? Whilst the star is still a massive body, presumably the ending of nuclear fusion of mass within the star would cause some sort of collapse or redistribution of mass within the star, and might this not produce some sort of gravitational wave effect which I presume is what the "shock wave" referred to in the film is implying? Does anyone have any better idea than me what might happen in this scenario?

(EDIT: Sorry- this was meant to be a new topic!)
