YATI :
Near the end of the episode, Data claims that the evidence supports the idea that it is gravity that is pulling the ship and the 2-D lifeforms into the string. Yet all the way through we are told that the ship is drifting at a constant speed towards the string. If gravity is pulling at the ship, then it would be accelerating rather than moving at a constant speed.
