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.

Continuity mistake: As Riker looks at the wooded scene on the holodeck, the water is flat calm, but when the camera looks at him, the water is noticeably more agitated before he gets to the rocks.

Continuity mistake: As Q comes into the courtroom on his floating dais, he goes to his right and gestures to the people to sit. He then starts to his left, and puts his hand down. After the angle cuts to Picard's point of view, as Q goes left his hand is dropping to the arm rest again.
