Factual errors 

An "ocean" in space would have a crust of ice on its surface, regardless of how warm it was.

Since the ocean's temperature would have be below 212 Fahrenheit (where it would boil and turn to steam under normal air pressures) it would be impossible for it to resemble an ocean as much as it would appear to be an icy sphere or ellipsoid..

Without an atmosphere and a magnetic field, there would be nothing to prevent the ambient radiation from space from killing everything in the rogue ocean. Since it has neither an iron inner core or a molten iron outer core, there would be nothing o generate the necessary magnetic field to protect the mass.

Tom Paris has prided himself on the accuracy of his Commander Cody recreation. But, when he's seen flying through space. His backpack rocket is emitting a large cloud of sparks. In the real Commander Cody when he flew there was no sparks or fire. There was smoke when he took off. But there never were sparks or fire of any kind.

A leak at 600 KILOMETERS below the surface of a water mass would have resulted in the deaths of all of the shuttle's occupants.

Either the immediate internal air pressure increase would have caused severe injuries to the occupants. Or the atmosphere inside would have been pressurized to incandescence and burned the occupants to death.

When the first communication with the Moneans occurs, Burkus gives his title as "Deputy COUNSEL Burkus," but the subtitles refer to him as "Deputy CONSUL Burkus." While a counsel (counselor) is an advisor to a political figure, a consul is a diplomatic figure and more likely to be Burkus' role.

Miscellaneous 

Paris is sentenced to 30 days "Solitary Confinement". But he's allowed visitors and electronic devices and is in an open cell with a guard in the same room. This does not meet the criteria for solitary confinement. Solitary confinement involves isolation and confinement. And next to NO human contact. Hense the word solitary.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

After Tom is released from the brig, B'Elanna calls him in his quarters and "orders" him to have dinner with her, but she says for him to meet her in her quarters at 0700 hours, which of course is 7 AM, not 7 PM (a more usual time for dinner). She should have said 1900 hours. All true, except as shown, the ship appears to be in evening lighting (Brig and hallways). This might indicate that Tom is released during the third shift's watch, in which case B'Elanna is talking about dinner when she finishes her shift. This could be at 0700.

When B'Elanna tells Tom that he's found a cause, he says that he never thought of himself as a "cause kind of guy". However, the pilot episode established that Paris had served with the Maquis. However, Tom made it clear in the pilot that he was in the Maquis only for the money, in other words, as a mercenary. This was why Chakotay and B'Elanna didn't trust him in the beginning. No one thought of him as a "cause kind of guy."

Plot holes 

There have never been toilet facilities in any of the cells, in the brigs of starships, with the exception of the brig of the Enterprise-A seen in Star Trek V: The Final Frontier, where the toilet emerges from a wall panel and is used as a seat.
