Battlestar Galactica mistake picture

Kobol's Last Gleaming (2) - S1-E15

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Starbuck attempts to retrieve Apollo's arrow, a crewman in a red tee shirt and dark vest can be seen standing just behind and to the right of the display case as she is shooting out the glass.

Battlestar Galactica (2003 Miniseries) - Part 2 - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: In the last battle scene in the miniseries, above Ragnar, all the civilian ships Jump away and Commander Adama orders all the vipers to land inside Galactica's landing bay. At one point, Dualla reports that two vipers are still out in the fight - Starbuck and Apollo. When Starbuck pushes her viper and Apollo's towards the landing bay, there's a shot of one of the basestars firing a missile, which hits Galactica. In this scene, we can see (and hear) 3 vipers, one of which is firing at a Cylon raider in the distance. They couldn't be Starbuck or Apollo, since Starbuck's viper and Apollo's were joined together and the mystery vipers are not, nor are they any of the other pilots, since only Starbuck and Apollo's vipers were still out, as Dualla has stated.

Sacrifice - S2-E16

Revealing mistake: When Billy lies dead in the morgue and the President fixes his hair while saying, "That's better." we can see Billy's throat move as he swallows.

Downloaded - S2-E18

Continuity mistake: When Sharon throws the picture frame at the wall and Six's face is cut, the camera angle quickly changes a few times showing Six alternately from the front and rear. But with each angle change, the location and position of her right hand is wildly different. Palm facing toward her face, then away from it, then closed fist with fingers near her cheek, then immediately arm down at her side, then back to fist at her cheek.

Black Market - S2-E14

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Baltar and the President are talking aboard Colonial 1, the tea pot changes from shot to shot. In one shot it points away from the President and in the next it points towards her. Neither of them picks it up to move it.

Litmus - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: When Chief Tyrol finds Jammer, Socinus and Cally at the still, they are standing in that order with Socinus behind and between the other two. The shot cuts to the chief dumping out the booze. Then it cuts back to the trio. Now their positions have changed. Now Socinus is on the left, Jammer on the right with Cally behind and between the guys.

Fragged - S2-E3

Other mistake: In the CIC, Tigh challenges Apollo and asks why he isn't in the brig. Shortly after Apollo begins to explain the plan for the search and rescue of the Raptor downed on Kobol. He refers to it as "Raptor 3" when it is Raptor 1 they are looking for. Raptor 3 was destroyed when they first jumped to Kobol, Raptor 2 escaped back to Galactica, and 1 fell to Kobol. The Raptor on Kobol is referred to as Raptor 1 throughout the rest of the episode and on preceding episodes.

Epiphanies - S2-E13

Factual error: Early in the episode a damaged Viper makes its way back to Galactica with its port-side gun trailing smoke as if in an atmosphere. But in a vacuum, the smoke wouldn't trail. It would build upon itself much the way shaving foam does when slowly leaking from a damaged can, unless the ship changed course and/or speed and then the smoke would appear to do the opposite - ship turns right, smoke moves off to the left because it remains on its original course regardless of what the ship does. The gun is not propelling the smoke rearward. The ammo inside is simply burning.

Unfinished Business - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Apollo and Helo are boxing, Helo punches Apollo and this cause his head to bleed down his face. A few shots later the stream isn't as long.

Battlestar Galactica (2003 Miniseries) - Part 2 - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When Adama orders the landing pods retracted before an FTL jump during the final battle, we are shown a shot of the interior of the landing bay as the entrance quickly narrows due to the retraction (2:44:13-2:44:20). At the rate of closure, the entrance would be fully sealed within the next 10 seconds. But a full minute later (2:45:21), we see the landing pods are fully extended again. Then at 2:46:04 we see from above that the pods have reached their fully-retracted position (and the entrances are now sealed), but at 2:46:12, they are still closing and Starbuck and Apollo safely enter before the entrance is sealed.

Downloaded - S2-E18

Continuity mistake: As Sharon shouts at Six, she is holding a photo frame in her right hand, waving it about slightly. But the moment she is about to throw the frame, it's instantly in her left hand and she passes it into her right to throw it.

Sacrifice - S2-E16

Continuity mistake: After Starbuck's cover as the mechanic is blown, she reaches into her tool box and grabs some guns. She has her hat pulled down over her face, but a second later when she spins around, the hat disappears and is never seen again.

33 - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the episode it shows a view of the CIC when there is supposed to be 30-40 seconds left until the 33 minutes is up, but as the camera pans out the timer in CIC is blinking "00:00:00".

Epiphanies - S2-E13

Continuity mistake: Episode 2-13, 'Epiphanies': When Baltar is led by the wrist along a corridor by Number Six, two crewmen pass Baltar on his left, headed the other way. The shot from behind Baltar places the crewmen immediately to Baltar's left when the shot is cut to a shot looking in the opposite direction as Baltar approaches the camera and the crewmen are now far behind Baltar, instantly. He is speaking continuously before and after this shot change, so there is no 'time passage' between the shots.

Scattered - S2-E1

Plot hole: Gaeta and Tigh both reference the fact that the Galactica crew computes the changes in stellar drift for FTL jumps and then sends out the info to the rest of the fleet for their use. However, when they fail to rendezvous with the fleet after the emergency jump, Gaeta realizes a mistake has been made and says that Galactica's info is out of date. This creates a major plot hole because if Galactica sends out the new info to the fleet, Galactica would always have the most up to date info for FTL jumps. The crew would be able to solve the lost fleet crisis by simply reloading the last coordinates that Galactica sent out and jumping there where the fleet would be waiting for them. There would be no need to go back to the previous coordinates and recompute the jump.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Season 3 Episode 8: Hero. When Adama is trying to resign the President hands him a copy of the certificate she wants to present to him. The pen that was in the holder a few seconds ago has been removed to allow her to hand it to him without the pen in the way.

Valley of Darkness - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: When the box of explosive rounds is opened, the six rounds keep changing position. Sometimes they are nearly laid on a row, whilst in other shots they appear scattered randomly in the box.

Colonial Day - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: During the bar fight, when the gun falls out of the assassin's briefcase it has a supressor on it. When he picks it up the supressor is gone.

Lay Down Your Burdens (1) - S2-E19

Continuity mistake: When the President is getting ready for her speech there is a pencil lying on the table in front of Adama. When it cuts to the President picking it up it has changed position on the table.

Resurection Ship - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: When the President is lying on the couch, she starts coughing and covers her mouth with her right hand, however, as Adama hands over a glass of water she is now covering her mouth with her left hand.

Trivia

Edward James Olmos (Commander Adama) plays a man involved in a search for dangerous androids who are nearly impossible to distinguish from humans. He played a man in a very similar situation in Blade Runner as Gaff. Amusing coincidence.
