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.

Timescape - S6-E25

Continuity mistake: In the scene right before the shuttle's crew finds the Romulan ship and the Enterprise, Geordi calls the shuttle craft's cockpit to explain the temporal disturbances. Captain Picard, Troi and Data walk into the shuttle's cockpit room and Troi puts her right arm on Geordi's chair. As Geordi, Data and Captain Picard are talking you can see Troi's wrist hanging off the chair, but when the camera cuts directly in front of Geordi her whole wrist is on the chair. The camera then cuts back and you can see that Troi's wrist is still hanging off the chair.

Encounter at Farpoint (1) - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When the computer instructs Riker to turn right, he turns to the left.

Sarek - S3-E23

Factual error: The second piece of music played at the concert is by Brahms and not Mozart.

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".

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.

Twotall

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.

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.

Encounter at Farpoint (1) - S1-E1

Other mistake: When Q the Judge enters on his throne, at one point, the hydraulic arm the throne is on is visible, despite being black to blend in. Conversely, in "All Good Things...", the final episode, the arm is missing having been matted out by CGI techniques.

Movie Nut

Encounter at Farpoint (1) - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: While trying to escape Q, the Enterprise fires eight torpedoes, but only five explode. If all detonated, the last three weren't shown, but Tasha reported detonation after only five.

11001001 - S1-E15

Plot hole: The crew makes no attempt to re-board the Enterprise or stop it from leaving the starbase even after they find out there is no danger from the anti-matter.

Timescape - S6-E25

Plot hole: When Picard, Geordi, and Troi encounter one of the first time disturbances it results in one of the runabout's nacelles using up all of its fuel. Data says this is due to it having been in operation for 47 days (according to the plasma conversion sensor). After this the Captain reaches for the bowl of rotting fruit which causes him to scream in pain. The other crew members rush in and Troi scans his hand. She tells Picard that his hand is metabolizing at approximately 50 times the normal rate. Data and Geordi then discover that the temporal disturbance which covers the fruit also covers the nacelle that has lost all of its fuel. Data also notes the disturbance extends outward from the hull, about 17 meters from the ship and is spherical in shape. The problem here is that according to what Data said earlier the engine was active for 47 days even though it had only very briefly come into contact with the time distortion - maybe 1 second at most, but likely far less time than this since the ship was at warp when the fuel was consumed. So if we assume the engine was in contact with the fragment for 1 second then time is actually moving at 4,060,800 times the normal rate - not 47 or 50 times normal.

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.

Clues - S4-E14

Continuity mistake: In the opening sequence, the venetian blinds in Dixon Hill's office rearrange themselves between takes. They're intact after the shooting, but moments later, despite being untouched by anyone in the room, they're broken and have a huge gap in them.

Jean G

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.

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."

Lessons - S6-E19

Visible crew/equipment: You can see the boom mike above Picards head when he is in his quarters.

Skin of Evil - S1-E23

Continuity mistake: Several episodes have stardates after this episode, but still have Tasha Yar in them (even though she dies in this episode). They aired before this episode. The series producers later formalized their stardate system so that they take place in the order the episodes air.

K.C. Sierra

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.

The Big Goodbye - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: The lipstick on Picard changes between when he is kissed, and later when he leaves the holodeck (it's darker and on and above his lips.)

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."
