Star Trek: The Next Generation

Up The Long Ladder - S2-E18

Continuity mistake: The Bringloidi leader keeps saying that they've spent 300 years building their society, but this episode takes place in 2365, and it's stated that his ship launched in 2123, making it 200 years.

The Emissary - S2-E20

Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the episode, Riker, Geordi, Worf, Data, and Pulaski are playing poker. Pulaski puts two neat stacks of chips in the center beside some chips in a pile. It then shows Worf putting similar stacks in the center but Pulaski's stacks are not visible and they should be. Then when Worf wins the hand, the camera is showing a wide shot of him pulling the chips towards him and you can see his and Pulaski's neat stacks of chips.

The Emissary - S2-E20

Continuity mistake: When Data is dealing the cards for 7-card stud, they show him dealing 1 card to everyone. In the close up, he's now dealing everyone a 2nd card. When it cuts to his hands however, everyone only has 1 card and he's dealing them a 2nd card again.

Shades of Gray - S2-E22

Continuity mistake: Near the end, when Pulaski finally stops the infection in Riker and is just about to contact Picard with her success, look at Riker lying on the table. His eyes are open, then he closes them slowly. The next scene has Riker opening his eyes for the first time after recovering from the procedure.

Evolution - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: In the opening sequence, the ship is positioned so that Shuttle Bay Two is aimed at the phenomena. But a moment later, the ship is facing into the stellar material.

Movie Nut

The Enemy - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: When Geordi falls down the hole in the beginning of the episode his visor is seen to his right. When he wakes up he finds it to his left.

The Enemy - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: After Wesley makes his neutrino pulse suggestion, Picard tells him to go do it. Wesley walks off camera. Then there's a commercial break, and Wesley is back on the bridge in the long shots. A few minutes later we hear the turbo-lift and Wesley walks back onto the bridge.

Deja Q - S3-E13

Continuity mistake: As Q approaches Picard and Riker's position while playing a trumpet, both of Q's hands are on the horn. A second later, his left hand is down by his side. Then, after he makes cigars appear in Picard and Riker's mouths, his left hand is extended as he says the first part of his lines. A second later, both hands are on his horn.

Movie Nut

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).

Tin Man - S3-E20

Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode, Deanna and Data are discussing what happened aboard Tin Man. He then turns around and she hugs him from behind. As she does, one of the buttons on Data's collar is missing, where it was there just a few seconds before.

Tin Man - S3-E20

Continuity mistake: While Tam is talking to Deanna and sits down, he says "You understood... at least a little, how I felt." While saying this, he places his left hand on his right leg. While still saying that same line, it cuts to an angle from beside Deanna and his left hand is suddenly between his legs.

Tin Man - S3-E20

Continuity mistake: To view their orders and mission, Data puts a drive into the Enterprise's computer while standing with Riker and Geordi. Riker is seen standing but leaning casually away from Data on Data's right, and Geordi is standing off to Data's left. It then cuts show the computer screen, and the three men are reflected in it. The reflection shows that Riker is suddenly almost leaning over Data's shoulder, and Geordi has moved to standing behind Data's left shoulder.

Tin Man - S3-E20

Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the episode, right after Data informs Picard that the USS Hood is on an intercept course, closing at high warp, Picard is shown in the back ground looking down at his arm rest. He looks up and turns his head to his right making it center with his body. It then cuts to a close up of Picard and he is looking to his left, and turns his head again to say "That's odd."

Hollow Pursuits - S3-E21

Continuity mistake: At the end of Barclay's sword fight on the holodeck, he has the hologram of captain Picard against a wall. When the angle is on the hologram, Barclay's sword is pressed into his chest. However, when the angle is on Barclay, the sword is several inches away from the hologram.

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)

Answer: He brought the Borg to the Alpha Quadrant and showed them that it was full of worlds waiting to be assimilated. Guinan's homeworld was their first stop, and they assimilated everyone and took over the planet, leaving The Survivors of her race without a home. Q is ultimately responsible for that.

Captain Defenestrator

By the time Q takes the Enterprise to meet the Borg, Guinan already knew who they were and they had already destroyed her world. Therefore the above answer can not be right. I believe Guinan is much more than she appears, and her people have had encounters with the Q in the past. It is these interactions, that obviously were not pleasant, that fuels her distrust.

oldbaldyone

That's what the above answer is saying. Q brought the Borg to the Alpha Quadrant (not Earth) and the Borg destroyed Guinan's home world in the late 2200's, which is why she hates Q. Although she met Q in 2160 and they both saw each other as enemies right away.
