Other mistake: During his final discussion with Tomalok, Picard tells him that the Enterprise will escort the Romulan ship back to The Neutral Zone. However, as the episode ends, the two ships are heading off in opposite directions. Both the Enterprise and Romulan warbirds have demonstrated in the past that they can spin on their axis from a standstill. There is no reason for either ship to head away from the other to turn around.

Revealing mistake: When Starbuck veers off the shot of his thumb and the flight stick is reversed. The "IM" button is on the left and the red "FIRE" button is on the right, opposite from where they normally are. Sharp eyes can even see the word "TURBO" is reversed before Starbuck's thumb covers it. (00:03:18)

Factual error: When the bus is shown entering Washington, DC for the competition, the shot shows the bus traveling over the Arlington Memorial Bridge with the Lincoln Memorial in the background. That bridge is on the southwest side of the city. Since NYC is to the northeast of DC, this means that to get to that bridge and enter DC that way, the bus had to drive all the way around the city and then come back in from the opposite direction. Even if the bus driver made a mistake and missed the most direct route into the city from the north, there are dozens of other ways to get to the heart of the city without adding a good 45 minutes to an hour to the trip.

Continuity mistake: When Olaf is standing at that secretary's desk, he reads the calendar and says his name is "haircut." The secretary and the top of her desk are shown several times and in most of the shots, the calendar is visible near the secretary's left arm. However, in at least one of those shots, the calendar vanishes.

Factual error: When the alien contacts Voyager after his catapult jump, he states that he is 5,000 light years away. Despite the distance, he and Janeway have a real time conversation. With this incredible communications technology, Voyager (which is at this point less than 55,000 light years from the Alpha Quadrant) should be able to have several back and forth conversations a day with Starfleet.

Factual error: When examining the sand, Bobbi states "According to carbon dating..." Fitz finishes by saying "It's a billion years older than the earth." However, carbon dating is only good at determining the age of something to about 60,000 years old. The only thing carbon dating could tell about the sand is that it is 60,000 years old or older. It certainly couldn't determine that the sand was 5 billion years old.

Continuity mistake: When Moroni arrives to kill Falconi, the number of turns of rope around the hook holding Falconi changes. First it is just one loop from the front, then the shot changes to the back and it is two. The shot changes to the front again and now there are three loops of rope around the hook.

Factual error: When Batgirl checks Batman's pulse, she states that his pulse is "three beats per minute." However, she only holds Batman's wrist for two seconds. There is no way she could have determined that pulse rate in so short a time. It is unlikely she could have detected even one heartbeat at that rate in two seconds.

Other mistake: When Sulu tells Kirk he is coming to help, he states the Excelsior is currently in the Alpha Quadrant. The problem is the the Alpha Quadrant in the Star Trek universe is one quarter of the total Milky Way Galaxy. While technically correct, Sulu giving his position as in the Alpha Quadrant is useless to Kirk in terms of knowing when to expect help. It doesn't matter where Khitomer is in the galaxy. Sulu saying he is in the Alpha Quadrant gives Kirk absolutely no idea of when he will arrive. He could be anywhere from 5 minutes away to 5 weeks away or even further. Remember, it was originally projected to take Voyager 70 years to go from the Delta Quadrant back to the Federation in the Alpha Quadrant.

Continuity mistake: As Thorin is picked up by the eagle, the eagle's talons roll him towards the camera. Both of the eagle's feet are in view and you can see all the way down Thorin's body to his boots. Orcrist is nowhere on his body during this initial shot of the pickup. As soon as the shot changes (where the Oakenshield drops free) and both of the eagle's feet come back into view, Orcrist is now on Thorin's body, running over his stomach and left leg. Had it been there before, it would have been visible when the eagle rolled him towards the camera.
