I just spotted a huge flaw in my story - but think it isn't critical. Just after some advice
My plot is about getting a mem-stick with vitally important data on it to a particular person & place.
My flaw is that this data could feasibly be uploaded to the person via the internet, or the mem-stick posted in the mail, which kinda undermines my hero's hazardous trek across the country.
I'm covering this flaw by exposing that the mem-stick is hardware protected, so if it's inserted into a standard USB port the data gets fried - and if it's posted in the mail it could get intercepted by the authrities who are hunting for the mem-stick.
This arse-covering seems a bit feeble I know, but I'm still feeling kinda safe here because my flaw is the self-same one I've just spotted in STAR-WARS, and nobody else ever seems to have done so.
What do you think? Am I safe on this one, or not?

Maybe I just answered my own question.
