Character error 

Doc Rios confronts Quincy when he is below decks ready to pull the safetied Halon discharge pin and says that doing so would "flood the whole engineering room with poisonous Halon gas". Halon gas is extremely non-toxic, breathable, and one can inhale it without any adverse effects. It is so safe that it is used to fight fires in enclosed spaces such as aircraft cockpits, and there is not even a need to don oxygen masks in the cockpit before it is discharged. On the other hand, CO2 extinguishers, which displace so much oxygen that a human would pass out if it were to be discharged in an enclosed space, would require an oxygen mask to be donned before it was used. Doc Rios would be well aware of these facts.

Plot holes 

If the disease is airborne and that virulent the soldiers should be in full NBC gear anywhere on the island as a matter of protocol. The virologist should have informed them of that. Also, any item or equipment should have been disinfected before being brought on the ship.

Spoilers

The goof item below may give away important plot points.

Factual errors 

Near the end of the episode the crew establish radio contact with a ship which identifies itself as the Royal Navy vessel 'HMS Suffolk' and a junior officer checks the ship's IMO call sign.

IMO numbers are not given to naval ships, only merchant ships are assigned IMO numbers. Also the format should be '1234567' not 'ABC123' as used in the show.
