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.

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.

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.

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.

Suggested correction: This happens a lot. The number on the door is not the number of the Eagle, it's the number of the command module. The super structure and drive systems are Eagle One. Even then, there has been several Eagle Ones destroyed or lost. Eagle One is assigned its designation by the head of Recon, Alan Carter.

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?

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