Star Trek: The Next Generation

Conspiracy - S1-E25

Continuity mistake: In the beginning of this episode, Riker orders Geordi (who was navigator at the time) to increase to Warp 6. In response, Geordi replies, "Aye sir, full impulse."

The Royale - S2-E12

Factual error: 30 seconds in Geordi says: 'surface temperature -291 degrees Celsius'. (The scale only goes down to -273.15 which is absolute zero).

Unification (2) - S5-E8

Visible crew/equipment: When Picard, Spock, and Data have just escaped from Romulan Commander Sela, when they are walking out of the room look at the green glass ornament - you can see a reflection of a crew member. Corrected on Blu-ray.

Datalore - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: After drinking some spiked Champagne from Lore, Data falls backward, yet lands on his face.

Add time

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.

The Big Goodbye - S1-E12

Visible crew/equipment: When Riker tells Yar to open a channel to the Jarada, you can see the reflection of a boom mike in the workstation along the back wall behind him.

The Last Outpost - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: When Picard asks the Ferengi if they are withdrawing their surrender, Yar's arms pop back and forth from folded to extended as the shots change.

Silicon Avatar - S5-E4

Continuity mistake: When Dr Marr and Data are talking in the cave about her dead son, she is holding the tricorder upside down.

Add time

Angel One - S1-E14

Visible crew/equipment: When Riker goes to meet Beata, they sit on the bed together drinking something. As Beata puts her glass down, a hand in the lower right-hand corner reaches for it and removes it for her.

Yesterday's Enterprise - S3-E15

Continuity mistake: In the episode 'Yesterday's Enterprise' (season three, episode 15), watch the final scene with Geordi and Guinan in Ten-Forward. Although time and the universe has returned to normal, Geordi is still wearing the uniform from the alternate timeline (note the sleeve detail, and the extended neck piece).

Add time

The Game - S5-E6

Revealing mistake: In season 5, "The Game," the brainwashed crew members hold Wesley's eyes open to force him to see the mind-controlling game. Their intention is to prevent him from closing his eyes, which would protect him from the device. While they are doing this, he blinks.

Add time

Angel One - S1-E14

Plot hole: Data calculates the time to reach the Neutral Zone in time by assuming maximum warp speed. After the solution, in the last minutes, Picard orders only warp six. With this speed, they won't get there in time. Aren't they in a hurry anymore ?

Where No One Has Gone Before - S1-E6

Visible crew/equipment: Near the start, just as Riker says "You have all the time you need.", the engine consultant stops and turns around. As he does so, look above his head and you can see a microphone hanging down. The camera quickly adjusts so it's not visible any more. [Not visible in the remastered Blu-ray version].

00:06:00

The Big Goodbye - S1-E12

Other mistake: After greeting Crusher, Data explains where Picard is. Problem is he uses the contraction "he's" instead of "he is." Data is supposed to be incapable of this.

Ship in a Bottle - S6-E12

Other mistake: In the transporter room, Data asks the computer what file log is shown. The computer reply is "Transport Log 759", Data confirms "That is the correct log", but the screen reads "Transport Log 721".

Encounter at Farpoint (1) - S1-E1

Other mistake: When Q the Judge enters on his throne, at one point, the hydraulic arm the throne is on is visible, despite being black to blend in. Conversely, in "All Good Things...", the final episode, the arm is missing having been matted out by CGI techniques.

Movie Nut

Timescape - S6-E25

Revealing mistake: As Picard goes to check the fuel consumption logs his right hand is in a closed fist. When he sits at a console and uses his right hand it already has the long nails he will get in the next few minutes when he reaches for the rotten fruit.

00:11:00

The Best of Both Worlds (2) - S4-E1

Factual error: Shelby announces the Borg have entered Sector 001, and we get an exterior shot of the Borg ship flying past Saturn. The problem is that the Borg are approaching from the side of the planet illuminated by the sun, meaning they would actually be moving AWAY from Earth rather than toward it.

Add time

Remember Me - S4-E5

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene when Dr. Crusher is on the Bridge all alone, right before the "universe" collapses, you can see a cameraman on a boom in the black plastic next to the turbo-lift behind her.

Add time

Where No One Has Gone Before - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: Picard addresses the ballerina as ensign, when in fact she has no pips on her uniform, making her a crewman.

Trivia

The cast really are very good friends. At LeVar Burton's wedding in 1992, the best man was Brent Spiner and the ushers were Patrick Stewart, Jonathan Frakes and Michael Dorn. And when Brent Spiner recorded an album (Ol' Yellow Eyes is Back), the backing groups listed as The Sunspots are again the male members of the bridge crew.
