On the technical side, as Jonny Bones said, because Ian Fleming didn't write a code-name, he wrote a character. A character with his own backstory, personality, mannerisms likes & dislikes. A code-name would explain the changing faces and gadgets, but if you went with that idea, you would then have to explain how all the "James Bonds": Were Commanders ...

It seems you simply misunderstood the quote. Here's the full quote: Andy: [reading Cornell magazine] Whoa. Libby Dirketts got married. Big Red mazel tov to the Libster. Ooh, says here Dan Becker fell off the side of Kilimanjaro in a climbing accident. It appears Dan's Sherpa survived to tell the tale-Oh, my God! Phyllis: What? Is Dan okay? ...

The time of the division was marked by violent upheaval on Vulcan. It isn't hard to imagine the records being lost, or the Vulcans never making the connection between those warlike Vulcans who disappeared thousands of years earlier and the Romulan Star Empire. From the Wikipedia entry on Surak: During the "Time of Awakening" a Vulcan schism of those ...

There's no concrete answers to why it's never acknowledged, but as Johnny Bones points outs, most of the films are based on books: Film                                        ...

Video On-demand. ...

Note that his apparent eye color varies depending on his surrounding, as is often the case for people with blue or hazel eyes, perhaps leading to the impression that his eyes ...

I think it shifted about the time PrimeTime Soaps began to wane. I recall several episodic shows when I was young. Virtually all the Adventure and Crime Dramas of the '80s were episodic in nature. From a writer's point of view, it may have been an attempt to keep the shows accessible to a new writer or a fill-in script. Actor contracts, also, went by ...

There is a part in the episode at approx 12:30 where Kirk asks the Guardian if they are successful what will happen. The Guardian tells them all will be set back to normal and they will be returned as though nothing happened. The Guardian sends them back. Also notice they come back with uniforms back on, where at the point in the episode, Kirk and Spock do ...

From my understanding it's no plot inconsistency. At least it's explained in the episode. In one of the earlier episodes, the Doctor hides the TARDIS by shifting it out of time by a second or so, which causes it to disappear. To me, it's time locked in some way. Could this be the same or a similar effect? However, I don't think the Time Lock and Gallifrey ...
