Star Trek: The Next Generation

Datalore - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the episode, right after Lore fires the phaser at Dr. Crusher, Data tackles Lore and knocks the phaser out of Lore's hand. The phaser flies towards the cargo transporter and when it impacts, it breaks in two. You can see a piece of it go flying off to the left. Then shortly after when Data throws Lore onto the transporter pad and Lore picks up the phaser, it's in one piece again.

Clues - S4-E14

Continuity mistake: In the opening sequence, the venetian blinds in Dixon Hill's office rearrange themselves between takes. They're intact after the shooting, but moments later, despite being untouched by anyone in the room, they're broken and have a huge gap in them.

Conundrum - S5-E14

Continuity mistake: In Ten Forward, when Deanna and Data are done playing 'chess', the positions of the game-pieces on the lower board level between them changes repeatedly, depending on camera angle.

Timescape - S6-E25

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Captain Picard reaches for the aged fruit, he screams while holding his right wrist with his left hand. As Troi, Geordi, and Data rush in you can see Captain Picard holding his wrist up in the air. The camera then cuts directly in front of Captain Picard and you can see Troi scanning his wrist but he isn't holding his wrist anymore. The camera then cuts directly in front of Troi and Geordi and you can see that Captain Picard is still holding his wrist. The camera then again cuts back to Captain Picard and he isn't holding his wrist anymore.

Inheritance - S7-E10

Continuity mistake: Juliana beams down to the planet with Data in two-inch black-heeled boots, but when she materializes she's wearing flats.

Schisms - S6-E5

Continuity mistake: Just before Riker jumps through the portal with the female crew member he rescues, his phaser falls out of its holster, yet when he lands back in cargo bay 4 his phaser is right there in the holster.

Coming of Age - S1-E19

Continuity mistake: On his way to the Farewell party, Picard is seen wearing his dress uniform, but no pips on it. There should be four.

Samaritan Snare - S2-E17

Continuity mistake: Wesley says that he's departing shuttle bay 2, but on the floor, it says shuttle bay 3.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: The view of the starfield in the ship's windows is always inconsistent whenever they are orbiting a planet. Sometimes the stars appear to be moving by, and sometimes they are completely static.

Brothers - S4-E3

Continuity mistake: When commander Data is reciting the code to lock the rest of the crew out of the computer, he states the code '1-7-3-4-6-7-3-2-1-4-7-6-C-3-2-7-8-9-7-7-7-6-4-3-T-7-3-2-V-7-3-1-1-7-8-8-8-7-3-2-4-7-6-7-8-9-7-6-4-3-7-6-LOCK', but when the computer screen is shown the code reads '1-7-3-4-6-7-2-1-4-7-6-C-3-2-7-8-9-7-7-7-6-3-T-7-3-2-V-7-3-1-1-7-1-8-8-8-7-3-2-4-7-6-7-8-9-7-6-4-3-7-6-LOCK.'

Parallels - S7-E11

Continuity mistake: In the reality where Worf and Troi are married, when she kisses his neck, all of Worf's hair has been pulled back behind his head. When he gets up and turns to face her, the hair on the right side of his head is draped over his shoulder. When the camera angle changes and Worf turns to face it, his hair is pulled back behind his head again. (It isn't Worf changing dimensions again, because he doesn't have the moment of weakness before it happens that he has through the rest of the episode.).

Skin of Evil - S1-E23

Continuity mistake: When the away team encounters the evil oily blob thing, it makes their equipment fly away. Later they have apparently recovered it. But strange things keep happening to Geordi's weapon: when he and the others run forward to rescue Riker, Geordi accidentally drops it in the black pool when he stops abruptly. Admittedly, you can't prove that's a mistake even though it has no purpose in the story. But shortly afterwards the phaser is back on Geordi's belt, clean. Did the sticky, malicious, bullying blob give it back just like that? (People often try and find justifications for mistakes, but in this case, wishful thinking can only give us an extremely unlikely explanation.)

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In the early episodes, Geordi's rank is inconsistent. In "Encounter at Farpoint", he is a full lieutenant. In subsequent episodes, he is a lieutenant junior grade, before being promoted back to full lieutenant.

Second Chances - S6-E24

Continuity mistake: In one scene on the planet, Riker's clone is lying under a table fixing something and Riker is sitting in a chair talking to him. There are two camera angles used. In one angle when the clone is talking and a body double is sitting in the chair he is facing directly towards the table but in the other camera angle where you can only see Riker, the chair is at an angle facing towards where his clone is lying on the floor.

Unnatural Selection - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: Looking at the shuttlecraft while sitting in the shuttle bay and after it has departed the Enterprise, you can tell they are different types of shuttles. The one in the shuttle bay has more angular lines with straight edges. The one outside the Enterprise has more curves than angles to its lines.

Time Squared - S2-E13

Continuity mistake: When the original Picard shoots the duplicate Picard with a phaser in the shuttlebay, he shoots him square in the chest. But in later shots, the scorch marks from the phaser are on his abdomen area.

Encounter at Farpoint (1) - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Commander Data tells Picard the Saucer Section will arrive in 51 minutes. Riker's synopsis audio can be heard in the background without interruption, and shortly after Data says this, the cameras turn back to Riker and the Video synopsis ends. Riker immediately reports to Picard who then receives the message that the Saucer Section is in orbit. Now, Riker was watching highlights of video footage from the Bridge, of which we see almost all of it because there really wouldn't be that much to view. And that's really all he could watch since we don't have cameras in the "Q-verse" and we see the footage ending with the Q sphere chasing the ship. Also, the entire ordeal was far less than an hour so there's no way a highlight reel could take an hour, not to mention the uninterrupted audio. We seem to be missing almost an entire hour.

Data's Day - S4-E11

Continuity mistake: At the end, Picard shows Data a baby born during the crisis. Neither of them touches it, but between shots, the baby's blanket changes positions. First it's almost completely covering his head and face, then it's pulled down and showing much more of him.

The Pegasus - S7-E12

Continuity mistake: In the opening log entry of the first episode, Picard says that "I have been informed that a highly experienced man, one Commander William Riker..." He sounds as though he has been assigned a First Officer without knowing him. However, in this episode he tells Pressman that he read Riker's file, and wanted him, based on Riker's adamant refusal to obey an order that went against his safety protocol.

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

Suggested correction: There's no error here. Picard likely read the files of many officers and requested the ones he preferred, and Star Fleet informed him which one he would get.

Mistakes

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."

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.
