There are discrepancies in the duration of scenes that were continuous shots from Star Trek: The Trouble with Tribbles
(1967). Cutaways in the re-edited scenes allow for events in adjacent shots of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Trials and Tribble-ations
(1996) to occur simultaneously with each other to account for any added overages, and for reinsertions from the original (e.g. where Chekov receives the bag of grain from Kirk as Odo waits) to maintain continuity except for one: an exchanged look between Kirk and Jadzia Dax on the bridge adding 47 frames (approx. 1.5 seconds).
