Throne for a Loss - S1-E4

Revealing mistake: After Rygel realizes that he can loosen the soil with the dumped gruel, it cuts to John and Aeryn as they approach the Tavlek camp, and when Aeryn tells John, "I am going to take out every last Tavlek. No survivors. No mercy. Now give me the oculars," John holds up the syringe (with Zhaan's sleep mist) that Aeryn had given him earlier, and we can see "DG-4" engraved on the side of the gun, revealing that the prop dept used the model DG-4 aluminum air blow dust gun to play the part of the syringe.

The Mouse - S4-E20

Revealing mistake: At the apartment complex fire, after Johnny is knocked unconscious by the explosion, when the Pasadena fireman finds him and has to lift him up, it's funny how even though Johnny's unconscious we can see that he actually helps to stand himself up, so the fireman can lift him up and carry him out.

Revealing mistake: (Part 4) After Omega takes off his mask and looks in the mirror, when he sees that his physical body doesn't exist he puts his mask back on and screams, but when he shouts, "If I exist only by my will, then my will is to destroy," Omega's mask pops up off his face, and we can see the actor's blackened face as he shouts the last bit of his dialogue.

Dalek - S1-E6

Revealing mistake: When they show the soldiers killed by the Dalek, in both the hallway outside the cage and the large room in weapons testing, they show some casings which were ejected from the soldiers' guns. The casings still have projectiles in them. If used, they would have been in magazines and would never fall out like they are shown.

The Bermuda Triangle Crisis - S2-E4

Revealing mistake: When Wonder Woman drops a mine into the water, she's supposed to be dropping it into the ocean. However, you can see a drain plug of some sort in the background and the "ocean" is obviously a pool, or similar.

Realm of Fear - S6-E2

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Barcley reappears on the transporter with the crewmember, they both fall to the ground. The transporter chief had put up a forcefield around the transporter chamber, in case something goes wrong. However, when the crewmember falls to the ground, his foot goes right through where the forcefield is meant to be. It is still active, as only a few seconds later we see it being deactivated.

When Kate grabs for the steering wheel, in the side exterior shot the stunt driver is quite noticeable, as he grips and turns the steering wheel with his good right hand/arm. (00:30:40)
