Remind yourself again what the two moons of Mars are, and you'll see the need to specify.

Uh... you just justified the need for the exchange.

It's probably more that he finds them amusing, and this was more amusing than anything else.

It doesn't really matter, mostly because by the deadline the people on the planet won't even be matter anymore. (Yeah, I know, that's not how it works, but the Men in Black reference was just too good.)

Don't question Guinan's testing methods.

You mentioning this and pointing out this line makes it seem like this is a precursor to the Continuum civil war in Voyager, considering this experience introduces him into working with lesser species to come to a goal.

Then again, the writers probably weren't thinking that and were trying to rely on Rule of Funny way too much with this episode.

This is correct. Must be a fluke.
The writer checked the map.
