Star Trek: The Next Generation

Encounter at Farpoint (1) - S1-E1

Corrected entry: Wesley walks out of the Halo deck, dripping wet. Things from the holodeck are not real and disappear upon leaving. Wesley should be dry when he passes the threshold.

Correction: Mistakes like these have already been entered and corrected. The holodeck uses transporter technology with replicators to generating actual matter in some instances, as well as projecting force fields to give the objects the illusion of substance. It's most likely food that is eaten in the holodeck is replicated matter and in this case, the water was also replicated matter and thus physically real, even after leaving the holodeck.

Encounter at Farpoint (1) - S1-E1

Corrected entry: When the computer instructs Riker to turn right, he turns to the left.

Correction: While it is true that the computer said right rather than left, Riker turned around in the intersection facing the way he came, so the hatch was on his right. It seems thought the computer gave directions a beat before he turned, but the result is the same.

Encounter at Farpoint (1) - S1-E1

Corrected entry: After the crew has separated the saucer section from the main section, we see the senior staff waiting on the bridge for the encounter with Q. Yet, on all the Enterprise blueprints and schematics, the main bridge is on the top of the saucer section. How can the crew let the saucer section go, wait on the war segment, and still be on the main bridge awaiting Q.

Correction: They are not on the main bridge anymore, they are on the battle bridge in the lower section.

Encounter at Farpoint (1) - S1-E1

Corrected entry: Riker says he reviewed the logs of the encounter with Q, where the alien kidnaps Troi, Picard, Tasha, and Data. But later he's unaware that Troi is a member of the crew.

Correction: Riker not only says that he reviewed the logs; he is also seen actively doing so on orders from the Captain. But more importantly, he never states that he was unaware that Troi was on board, he merely pauses and stares at her when they meet. This is because Riker and Troi have a romantic history together, so it is natural for him to have an emotional reaction when they meet again. To say that Riker was unaware of Troi's presence is an assumption, nothing more.

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.
