Visible crew/equipment: In the Medical center, as the camera pulls back from Picard, who is lying on the bio bed, the camera is reflected on the panels angled toward the camera.

Other mistake: As Wesley and Picard prepare to depart the Enterprise, Data says the ship is at impulse speed. However when we see the shuttle exit, the ship is shown not to be moving.

Suggested correction: At impulse speeds, there would be no visible indication of movement as they're in open space.

Jason Hoffman

This is incorrect. In-universe has shown the difference between a moving ship and stationary ship, even open space.

Exactly what is this difference you're referring to? If a ship is moving at sub-light speeds with only stars visible it is impossible to tell how fast it is moving, or even if it is moving. The only movement visible would be that imparted by the difference in movements of the camera and ship. (In fact, they create of the illusion of the ship speeding by by moving the camera past a stationary ship.) This is reality. If there is an error, it is the fact that the stars can be seen moving outside the hanger bay door which would indicate the ship was slowly rotating.

Other mistake: After the report that Picard is close to death, the scene shifts to a close up of La Forge's hand turning on controls. If you look closely, you can see that both panels are re-purposed CANX-23429 remote control units. The markings are for volume, radio, transmitter, receiver, phone jacks and a microphone jack.

Other mistake: When the Pakleds shoot La Forge the second time, he raises his arms a bit, seemingly in preparation to go backwards.

Continuity mistake: As La Forge prepares to transport the Pakled shoots him. He reacts, and a second later reacts again.
