Impact - S1-E1

Other mistake: Right at the start, as they're crashing, the computer narrates their rapidly-dropping altitude in feet. But the "altitude" dial we're shown is in metres. Most noticeable as they cross the 3,000 mark, when the computer voice and the height say/show the same number at the same time, despite the different units. 3,000m would be more like 9,000 feet, or 3,000 feet would be more like 1,000m.

Season 1 generally

Other mistake: One of the episodes shows John at a Marine base camp. It shows him wearing Army fatigues, and in Episode 7, Maureen jokingly says "weren't you a Navy SEAL?" right after he fails to throw this hook to get to safety from a tar pit. So what is he? A soldier? Marine? SEAL? Can't be all three.

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: Navy SEALs will wear camo to disguise themselves.

SEALs are Navy. So John is a Navy guy in a Marine Corps base using Army fatigues? A bit messy I guess.

Military folks end up on various bases all the time. I was in the Navy for 20 years and found myself, at different times, operationally committed to being on Army, Air Force, Coast Guard bases, and plenty of other bases with Marine detachments, to say nothing of bases of foreign militaries overseas. If you happen to be on a joint operations base, like European Command, you'll see everything walking around. Not as odd as it sounds.

Ninety-Seven - S2-E10

Question: If only the Resolution was able to do galactic travel, then how was Fortuna able to do the same?

Answer: The Fortuna didn't have an Alien Engine. The cover story was the Fortuna was to explore Alpha Centauri but it was exploring the rift. The rift is what the Alien Engine creates and explains how the Fortuna was able to travel to a distant planet (what you call "galactic travel").
