Star Trek: The Next Generation mistake picture

When The Bough Breaks - S1-E17

Visible crew/equipment: After finishing his talk with Harry, Riker continues to walk into the Turbolift. A leg from a light stand can be seen in the lower right hand corner as Riker walks into the lift. [Not visible in the remastered Blu-ray version].

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.

Sarek - S3-E23

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

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.


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.


Encounter at Farpoint (1) - S1-E1

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

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.

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.

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

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.

The Child - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: When checking Ian's pulse, Pulaski reaches out with her left hand, but her right arm retracts after the angle change.

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."
