Breakaway - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: The first time the two crew men in the moon buggy are seen, the numbers on their suits are eight and three. The next moon buggy scene, the two in the suits are numbered eight and three again at first, but when they're testing the domes, the numbers change to nine and zero.

The Troubled Spirit - S1-E22

Continuity mistake: As the experiment recreation progresses, and Helena identifies the spirit, the spirit appears with damage on the left side of its face, and a yellow sleeve on its right arm. When the camera is close up to the spirit, the damage and yellow sleeve change sides.

Movie Nut

Space Brain - S1-E21

Continuity mistake: The number on Kelly's suit was 4. As Paul went to go out after Kelly, you see the number 4 on the control panel, then when he nears Kelly, it's changed to 3, suggesting the shot of the exiting person was re-used.

Movie Nut

Missing Link - S1-E20

Other mistake: As the camera pans around to look in the cockpit, the wound on Koenig's head is easily seen as a bad blending job. The edges of the prosthetic are visible.

Movie Nut

Missing Link - S1-E20

Other mistake: In the beginning, the Eagle was moving away from the alien planet, and as such, should have crash landed facing away from the planet. However, it was facing the direction it came from. If it traveled a fairly straight line, (and the trajectory suggests it did) then it should have crashed with the rear end facing the planet.

Show generally

Other mistake: Every time someone calls, either on the comlinks, or the wall panels, there always appears to be a blank wall immediately behind the person on screen, even when the camera cuts to the person calling.

Movie Nut

Dragon's Domain - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: The panel Tony hits with a tomahawk in his quarters first appears to be molded plastic, then in a close up, appears to be painted wood, as the wood grain where the panel above is smooth.

Dragon's Domain - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: In the earlier part of the story, Tony was the only survivor and took the pointed module to escape. As Koenig and company return to the probe and dock, the module is back in place.

Movie Nut

Helena Russell: With a history like that, who wants to go back to Earth anyway?

Question: Assuming that Moonbase Alpha is on the side facing the Earth (which is seen on the horizon over the base in the pilot episode "Breakaway"), making travel to it and back easier, and the nuclear waste on the far side, away from Earth, wouldn't the explosion propel the moon towards the Earth, thereby dooming Alpha to certain destruction?

Movie Nut

Answer: Not necessarily - The gravitational fields of Earth and the Sun could have deflected the moon away from the solar system.
