New this month Other mistake: When Janeway plays the message from the Admiral, she tells the computer to advance to time index 121.4. each 0.1 of the time index equals 1 second. We hear the message play for 4-5 seconds, but when the video is shown, the time index is only 121.5.
New this month Character mistake: At the start, Captain Janeway reveals that she has discovered Tuvok's birthday. Then she says it's not long before he hits the big 3-digits (meaning 100 years old). However, Tuvok was 107 when he infiltrated the Maquis and they've already spent 6 years on Voyager. Even if she didn't discover his birth year and was only guessing. Tuvok would not have replied with "indeed" but pointed out she is wrong.
New this month Character mistake: When the now human Borg children are sculpting, one of the children tell Seven he made a cube that's precisely 1/1,000 the size of a Borg vessel. Borg Cubes are described as 3 kilometers in length, if not bigger. 1/1,000 of that would be more than 9.8 feet in length. 1/10,000 the size would have been a more accurate description.
New this month Character mistake: B'Elanna replicates and assembles a television from 1956, including a remote control. Tom however says they didn't have remote controls in the 50's. The first wireless remote was invented in 1955 and the "Zenith Space Command" (a remote looking similar to the one in use) came out in 1956, which fits the timeline. Tom is vastly aware of 1950's technology (he seems to know when the television remote came out) and wouldn't make that mistake or B'Elanna would have corrected him given how much research she had to do to set the whole thing up.
New this month Plot hole: When orbiting the planet, Seven says that for every second on Voyager, nearly a day passes on the planet and later Janeway says 3 seconds is nearly 2 days. However, throughout the episode, time seems to move much faster on the planet to fit the plot. It would take more than 6 days for 1,000 years to pass. And in a few hours (3) less than 20 years would pass (hardly enough time for the rise and fall of a civilization). For example, when they receive the transmission, they slow it down and immediately start playing it. The next scene the senior officers are listening to it and the Doctor says nearly a century has passed, but there's no reason (or indication) that they waited almost 6 and half days to listen to it.
New this month Character mistake: Neelix says that the Great Wall of China, prior to the 22nd century, was the only man-made object visible to the naked eye from orbit. This statement has been long-since debunked, but it's not unreasonable to think the myth perpetuated itself in the future. Still wrong though.
New this month Continuity mistake: When Shinwell and Sherlock are playing chess, the captured pieces move around in various shots. For example, Shinwell takes Sherlock's knight, he places it closer to him than the pawn. In the next shot the pawn is closer to him. It changes a few more times as do the captured white pieces.
New this month Continuity mistake: When Joan is sitting on the couch folding ties while Shinwell tries on a shirt, she has a folded up blue tie with white dots. When the camera cuts back to her and she's now folding a gray tie, you can see the blue tie with white dots, unfolded, lying on the clothes. Previously there was no tie there. And in the next shot of her, she once again folding the blue tie and the gray tie can't be seen.

New this month Character mistake: Captain Janeway states the temporal differential ratio is .4744 seconds per minute (meaning for every minute on the surface, only .4744 seconds pass on Voyager). Tuvok calculates that 30 minutes on Voyager would be 2 days 11 hours and 47 seconds. However, at that ratio, 30 minutes would be 2 days 15 hours 14 minutes and 15.9 seconds. Later Tom (who was on the surface) says the last two months for them was only 2 days for B'Elanna (who was on Voyager). But with the temporal differential, 2 months on the surface would be less than 12 hours on Voyager. 2 days on Voyager would be almost 253 days (almost 8.5 months) on the surface.
New this month Stupidity: When Kellin is hit with the neurolytic emitter, it erases her memories of the outside world. However, the effects aren't immediate and take some time (enough to get her to sick bay and have time to talk to Chakotay). However, she spends her time telling Chakotay to help her remember their relationship, etc. when her memory is gone instead of just making a recording of herself describing the relationship and her feeling which can then be shown to her after her memory is gone. She might not believe the recording, but seeing herself discuss the situation would be better than just relying on Chakotay (who will soon be a stranger she never met) telling her something so unbelievable.

Old Alien in Wheelchair: I've dwelt among the humans. Their entire culture is built around their penises. It's funny to say they're small. It's funny to say their big. I've been at parties where humans have held bottles, pencils, thermoses, in front of themselves and called out, "Hey, look at me. I'm Mr. So-and-so dick. I've got such-and-such for a penis." I never saw it fail to get a laugh.
Rick: Cute, your sister's boss gave me a microscope that would have made me retarded.
Morty: Ooh. Oh, boy, Rick, I, I don't think you're allowed to say that word, you know.
Rick: Morty, I'm not disparaging the differently abled. I'm stating the fact if I had used this microscope, it would have made me mentally retarded.
Morty: Okay, yeah, but I don't think it's about logic, Rick. I, I think the word has just become a symbolic issue for powerful groups that feel like they're doing the right thing.
Rick: Well, that's retarded.
Continuity mistake: When Summer is surrounded by the army and talking to the car, we see her seat has stuffing coming out of it on two spots. But shots facing her, you can see there's no stuffing coming out of her seat and it's the driver's seat that has the stuffing sticking out.
Continuity mistake: In the beginning, throughout the breakfast scene, items on the table change. For example, the cereal box position and at one point Morty puts his fork down next to his plate by the edge of the table, but in some shots it's not there.
Question: On the IMDB, the credits for each episode in season 1 (except for episode 8) list "Unity" as playing "Themselves" or "Themself", sometimes listed as uncredited and some times not. However I never saw Unity listed in any credits on the show itself. (It should be noted, I'm not talking about the character Unity from season 2 which was voiced by Christina Hendricks). Looking further on IMDB, Unity has appeared on a dance show where it appears Unity is a dance crew and not an individual with a weird name. So who is Unity playing in a cartoon if they're just dancers and not voice actors? Did the dance crew actually do any voice work or help with any dance scenes, even though they're just drawings and not motion captured?
New this week Answer: It was just an error on IMDB, it seems to have been fixed now.
