Star Trek: The Next Generation

Relics - S6-E4

Trivia: Scotty visits the bridge from "his" Enterprise (from the original 1966 Star Trek series) on the Holodeck. As the original set had long since been destroyed, the captain's chair and center console used in the episode was donated by a fan who had recreated a life size version of the bridge. The turbolift alcove and one of the stations was built on-set (and re-used in the DS9 episode "Trials and Tribbleations"). Everything else was made up of footage from the original series that was looped.

Relics - S6-E4

Trivia: In the Holodeck, you see Scotty's right hand open on the glass and later on the bottle. It can be seen that his middle finger is missing. James Doohan kept his hand closed most of the time on screen because he lost it in World War II.

Too Short a Season - S1-E16

Other mistake: At the beginning of the episode, when Picard and Riker leave the bridge to head to the teleport deck to receive the admiral and his wife, as the lift door opens Patrick Stewart makes a face at the film crew off-screen as he walks off the bridge. (00:02:05)

Skin of Evil - S1-E23

Question: Near the end when they are in the holodeck for the memorial ceremony for Lt. Yar, Dr. Crusher's uniform is green and seconds later it is blue. After watching it several times, it does not appear to be a trick of the light. What happened here? Why would she have on a green uniform in the first place?

Chosen answer: The uniform does indeed change colour. It may be due to the need for a green screen in part, or perhaps some lighting altering our perception. That being said, it certainly looks green at the start, blue thereafter.

The show has been done in HD now and not sure if they fix this problem.
