Episode Goofs
Barklay: (to Einstein, on the holodeck) I still don't see how you're going to incorporate the quantum principle into General Relativity without adjusting the cosmological constant a lot more.than you're doing here.

In actual fact, Einstein never accepted the notions of quantum mechanics , and he never incorporated them into General Relativity -- hence the source of a famous quote by Einstein: "God does not play dice with the universe!"

It was the act of combining General Relativity with quantum mechanics in the early 1970s which gave Stephen Hawking his initial chops in the physics world. He famously quipped: "God may play dice, but the dice are loaded".
