Star Trek: The Next Generation

Birthright (1) - S6-E16

Visible crew/equipment: During Data's second dream experience he imagines becoming a bird and flies through the Enterprise and beyond. As he flies past his father at the anvil a crew member is seen sitting by the double doors behind him.

Hero Worship - S5-E11

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Data is brushing Timothy's hair into a copy of his own hairstyle, he stops, kneels down and asks Timothy "Timothy, are you having bad dreams?" In this shot there is a big tuft of hair on the right side of Timothy's head that sticks straight out. When their conversation is over and Data stands up in the wider shot, all of Timothy's hair is in place.

Hero Worship - S5-E11

Factual error: When Geordi calls Data while Data and Timothy are building the sculpture, Data refers to Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge as, "Lieutenant La Forge," instead of the militarily correct short form, "Commander."

Remember Me - S4-E5

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene when Dr. Crusher is on the Bridge all alone, right before the "universe" collapses, you can see a cameraman on a boom in the black plastic next to the turbo-lift behind her.

Timescape - S6-E25

Revealing mistake: As Picard goes to check the fuel consumption logs his right hand is in a closed fist. When he sits at a console and uses his right hand it already has the long nails he will get in the next few minutes when he reaches for the rotten fruit.

Rascals - S6-E7

Plot hole: After Picard, Guinan, Ro, and Keiko all beam back to the ship and have been transformed into children, their clothing hangs loosely on all four. Later, Dr. Crusher even states "But as far as we can tell, only their bodies were changed". Presumably they replicate a change of clothes that fit before the next scene. However, no one on the medical team addresses the fact that the now pre-pubescent Captain Picard has an adult-sized parthenogenetic implant (fake heart) that was mentioned in many previous episodes.

Datalore - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the episode, right after Lore fires the phaser at Dr. Crusher, Data tackles Lore and knocks the phaser out of Lore's hand. The phaser flies towards the cargo transporter and when it impacts, it breaks in two. You can see a piece of it go flying off to the left. Then shortly after when Data throws Lore onto the transporter pad and Lore picks up the phaser, it's in one piece again.

Night Terrors - S4-E17

Continuity mistake: When Data and Troi are scanning the list of elements, searching for something to cause an explosion, the list is scrolling "up" the screen. When she tells Data to stop and go back, he does, but the list continues to scroll "up" instead of back "down".

Sub Rosa - S7-E14

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Picard is talking to the governor about staying awhile to fix the weather controls, Troi can be seen in the background talking to some people, but she had just left with Beverly to go to Nana's house.

Half a Life - S4-E22

Visible crew/equipment: When Lwaxana and Deanna Troi are talking in Lwaxana's quarters (near the end of the episode), note the boom microphone you can see in the mirror as Lwaxana walks away from it the first time.

Schisms - S6-E5

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Geordi and the Captain are in engineering trying to close the subspace hole, you can see a silhouette of the camera in the reflection of the warp core blue lights in the window between the warp core and the console they are working from.

Conundrum - S5-E14

Visible crew/equipment: Just before encountering the Lysian destroyer the boom is visible in the top left of the screen very briefly

Emergence - S7-E23

Visible crew/equipment: In the opening scene when Data is portraying a character from Shakespeare's play "The Tempest" a small card can be seen attached to the back of the book he is carrying (likely containing his lines), but after increasing the amount of torch light the card is no longer there.

The Emissary - S2-E20

Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the episode, Riker, Geordi, Worf, Data, and Pulaski are playing poker. Pulaski puts two neat stacks of chips in the center beside some chips in a pile. It then shows Worf putting similar stacks in the center but Pulaski's stacks are not visible and they should be. Then when Worf wins the hand, the camera is showing a wide shot of him pulling the chips towards him and you can see his and Pulaski's neat stacks of chips.

Timescape - S6-E25

Plot hole: Wouldn't Worf have known that the distress call was coming from a Romulan ship long before Riker arrived on the bridge?

Timescape - S6-E25

Continuity mistake: Picard states that the energy beam appears to come from the deflector array, in later shots it is coming from the rear of the star drive section.

Timescape - S6-E25

Continuity mistake: The "Romulan" that attacks Geordi is not standing in the spot he is in when time pauses again.

The Enemy - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: When Geordi falls down the hole in the beginning of the episode his visor is seen to his right. When he wakes up he finds it to his left.

Tin Man - S3-E20

Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode, Deanna and Data are discussing what happened aboard Tin Man. He then turns around and she hugs him from behind. As she does, one of the buttons on Data's collar is missing, where it was there just a few seconds before.

Trivia

Another joke from the set designers: whenever someone is in the Jeffries Tubes, you will see several pipes on the walls labeled "GNDN" this stands for "Goes Nowhere, Does Nothing."
