Babylon 5 (1994)

22 mistakes

Genres: Action, Drama, Sci-fi

A Race Through Dark Places - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: Before she's succeeded in her effort to move it with telekinesis, Talia's penny reverses itself on the table between takes, changing from tails-up to heads-up.

Shadow Dancing - S3-E21

Revealing mistake: When he's attacked in Down Below, Dr. Franklin is shoved against a station bulkhead/wall that wobbles when he hits it.

Atonement - S4-E9

Continuity mistake: While Delenn is in the chamber for "the dreaming," her hair restyles itself over her forehead several times between takes.

In the Shadow of Z'ha'dum - S2-E16

Continuity mistake: When you see Morden's picture on the screen before the theme title, he is smiling, but after the theme title ends, he is in a different position and is not smiling.

The Corps is Mother, the Corps is Father - S5-E13

Factual error: Bester lifts the blanket covering the bloody corpse of Harris' roommate. The man hasn't been dead long enough for the blood to dry, so there should be blood-transfer on the underside of the blanket - but there's not a spot on it.

Show generally

Deliberate mistake: Though he moved freely about the station in his environmental suit, Kosh was never actually seen going through a door. He approached doors, but then, sometimes rather disconcertingly, would suddenly be shown on the other side. The reason: look closely and you'll realise his costume was too large to fit through any of the doorways on the set, so in reality the character would never have been able to move around the station.

GROPOS - S2-E10

Continuity mistake: While she stands at attention and the Sgt. Major chews out her unit for fighting, Dodger's hair keeps recombing itself every time the shot changes angles. Her bangs are parted, then solid across her forehead, then parted again.

No Compromises - S5-E1

Continuity mistake: At the security meeting, just as Captain Lochley is saying "I agree with Sheridan", she is shown in a long shot uncrossing her arms and starting to move forward. The camera goes to a close-up of her, and she once again is shown uncrossing her arms and starting to walk forward.

Comes the Inquisitor - S2-E21

Audio problem: In the last scene of the episode Sheridan says to Mr. Sebastian "The morning after the last of a string of murders in the east end. " His lips however, say west end instead of east end.

Strange Relations - S5-E6

Continuity mistake: The ship that's supposed to transport Londo Mollari home changes ship class. Before the explosion, it's a Primus class battle cruiser. The wreckage shown afterwards is of a Vorchan class medium warship.

Babylon Squared - S1-E21

Visible crew/equipment: Approximately 29 minutes and 10 seconds into this episode, right after Sinclair clasps hands with "The One", Garibaldi and Sinclair are on the ground. In the upper right corner of the shot there is a grip with a red baseball cap and red and white shirt on. He has long hair and spiffy glasses.

In the Kingdom of the Blind - S5-E9

Continuity mistake: On Centauri Prime, Londo has an audience with the demented Regent. In the initial shot, the babbling Regent holds both hands up near his face as he speaks. In the very next, reverse-angle shot, his hands are down at his sides. When it cuts back, his hands are up again.

The Face of the Enemy - S4-E17

Visible crew/equipment: When Sheridan is attacked in the bar on Mars, the strobe lights at one point cast the camera's shadow against one wall behind the actors.

Severed Dreams (3) - S3-E10

Continuity mistake: As the Earth loyal ships exit the jumpgate, the force consists of two destroyers and two cruisers. However Babylon 5 and the renegade ships destroy three destroyers and the battle is won. There is no sign of the cruisers through the entire battle.

The Very Long Night of Londo Mollari - S5-E2

Factual error: When Doctor Franklin tells Sheridan about Londo, he says that the Centauri have a bipulminary system. The correct term would be bicardiary system. (Pulminary has to do with the lungs, cardiac/cardiary has to do with the heart.)

A Distant Star - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: When Cortez is coming through the B5 gate, you can see it open on the monitor behind the officer announcing Cortez' arrival in C&C. In the next cut you see the gate open again.

Knives - S2-E17

Continuity mistake: In "Babylon Squared," it took several hours to reach Sector 14 from Babylon 5. Here, Sheridan and Garibaldi get there in a matter of minutes.

The Parliament of Dreams - S1-E6

Revealing mistake: As Lennier is first setting foot on the station, the same extra rides the escalator in the background up twice, even though we never saw him (nor was there time for him to) come down.

The Fall of Centauri Prime (2) - S5-E18

Character mistake: Throughout this and the previous episode, Centauri's Regent mispronounces the name of his own planet as "Centuri." Only as he's dying does he finally correctly call his homeworld "Centauri."

And the Sky Full of Stars - S1-E9

Revealing mistake: Inside Sinclair's mind, just after the knight shoots the fake Garibaldi, he lowers his gun and the end briefly lights up red. Evidently the actor accidentally pulled the trigger on the prop and triggered the light that lets the CGI team time the effects correctly. Note that it is not the gun barrel glowing after shooting, as it is not lit up before he lowers it.
