Star Trek: The Next Generation mistake picture

Unification (2) - S5-E8

Visible crew/equipment: When Picard, Spock, and Data have just escaped from the female Romulan commander, when they are walking out of the room look at the green glass ornament - you can see reflection of a crew member.

Silicon Avatar - S5-E4

Continuity mistake: When Dr Marr and Data are talking in the cave about her dead son, she is holding the tricorder upside down.

The Game - S5-E6

Revealing mistake: In season 5, "The Game," the brainwashed crew members hold Wesley's eyes open to force him to see the mind-controlling game. Their intention is to prevent him from closing his eyes, which would protect him from the device. While they are doing this, he blinks.

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."

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

Silicon Avatar - S5-E4

Plot hole: When the colonists go into the cave to escape from the Crystalline Entity, you can see perfectly formed steps going down into the cave. The colonists were the first people there. Why would there already be perfectly formed steps in a cave?

Conundrum - S5-E14

Continuity mistake: In Ten Forward, when Deanna and Data are done playing 'chess', the positions of the game-pieces on the lower board level between them changes repeatedly, depending on camera angle.

Time's Arrow (1) - S5-E26

Visible crew/equipment: When Deanna and Riker stop at the turbolift to discuss Data, before the doors open to reveal Data, in the shot facing Deanna the reflection of crew movement is visible on the trim's surface, just over the turbolift.

Ensign Ro - S5-E3

Continuity mistake: When Picard, Ro and the others arrive at the refugee camp to meet with Keeve Falor, the type of uniform top Ro is wearing has its zipper at the back in the center - with no seam whatsoever at the front. When she kneels down in front of the child, it has changed to the open-front jacket type, so Ro can touchingly give it to the child.

Ensign Ro - S5-E3

Continuity mistake: When Ro and Picard are among Ro's people and she gives her jacket to a child (saying something like 'this is what I was, once') she never removes her commbadge. However, there's a commbadge neatly placed on her grey tank top - even though she didn't even remove it from the jacket, let alone put it on her shirt.

Cost of Living - S5-E20

Visible crew/equipment: A boom Mic is visible about nine minutes in, just as Riker and Picard begin walking down the corridor talking about Lwaxana Troi getting married aboard the enterprise.

Redemption (2) - S5-E1

Revealing mistake: The Klingon which challenges Gowron, and which Gowron kills, is seen breathing when he should be stone dead.

Power Play - S5-E15

Continuity mistake: On the planet's surface, when the away team are knocked unconscious their positions on the ground differ significantly between shots.

Cause and Effect - S5-E18

Continuity mistake: In the very first scene, where Data is shuffling the cards, you can see his silver and gold chips are neatly stacked up straight. The camera then cuts to Commander Riker and then back to Data and his chips are crooked at the top and at the bottom.

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."
