Star Trek: The Next Generation

Datalore - S1-E13

Other mistake: In this episode, when Riker makes his log entry, he says the stardate is "4124.5, " the 4-digit style of stardates from The Original Series, rather than the 5 digit style used in The Next Generation.

The Big Goodbye - S1-E12

Other mistake: After greeting Crusher, Data explains where Picard is. Problem is he uses the contraction "he's" instead of "he is." Data is supposed to be incapable of this.

Ship in a Bottle - S6-E12

Other mistake: In the transporter room, Data asks the computer what file log is shown. The computer reply is "Transport Log 759", Data confirms "That is the correct log", but the screen reads "Transport Log 721".

Encounter at Farpoint (1) - S1-E1

Other mistake: When Q the Judge enters on his throne, at one point, the hydraulic arm the throne is on is visible, despite being black to blend in. Conversely, in "All Good Things...", the final episode, the arm is missing having been matted out by CGI techniques.

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 crew off-screen as he walks off the bridge.

Face of the Enemy - S6-E14

Other mistake: As the cloaked Warbird looks at the Enterprise, the registry number on the under side of the saucer is reversed.

Loud as a Whisper - S2-E5

Other mistake: When Data is interpreting between Captain Picard and Riva, he uses signs for words Captain Picard has not yet spoken, and voices concepts before Riva has signed them. He also doesn't interpret everything the Captain and counselor Troi say.

Haven - S1-E11

Other mistake: When Deanna's mother arrives on the Enterprise, the sound of the transporter activating is heard. But the transporter technician is seen behind Picard and Deanna, and he remains standing by the wall with his arms behind his back.

Where No One Has Gone Before - S1-E6

Other mistake: As the Enterprise comes out of warp in galaxy M33, the conference lounge is visible and is a re-use of the opening sequence. The movements of the people is identical.

Silicon Avatar - S5-E4

Other mistake: After the signal change to a continuous output, the Crystalline Entity vibrates. As it does, look at the background stars. They also vibrate in time with the Entity, although the signal is focused on Entity alone.

The Best of Both Worlds (1) - S3-E26

Other mistake: When O'Brien activates the transporter, only the very bottom indicator lights come on, even as he moves his hand up. Usually the indicator lights match the movement of the hand.

I, Borg - S5-E23

Other mistake: When Picard is sitting in his Ready Room, he turns on the desk display. The top on the display is blurry, but the animation is crisp and clear. After the animation is done, the display reverts to a standby picture and is as blurry as the top.

Remember Me - S4-E5

Other mistake: Toward the end, Beverly gets in the turbo lift to go to Engineering. As it starts, you see the lights to her left strobe top down. This is to indicate movement. However, since the lift was at the bridge level, the lights should have gone from bottom up, showing that the lift is going down.

Samaritan Snare - S2-E17

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.

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

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.

Bishop73

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.

Samaritan Snare - S2-E17

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.

Nth Degree - S4-E19

Other mistake: After Data reports the bypass blocked, Riker goes to call to Barclay. The chirp preceding the computer, now Barclay's, response occurs almost simultaneously with the call, rather than a second or two gap between the call and chirp.

Relics - S6-E4

Other mistake: When Scotty goes to the holodeck to visit the original Enterprise, the computer tells him there are 5 Federation vessels with that name. (NX-01 served before the founding of the Federation so this is technically correct.) Scotty specifies NCC-1701, "no A, B, C or D." The computer then tells him the program is ready. The computer should have asked him if he wanted pre or post refit NCC-1701. The ship we see in the Original Series was rebuilt/refit into the ship we see in The Motion Picture.

The Enemy - S3-E7

Other mistake: While down in the pit Geordi makes a couple of spikes to climb out with. When the phaser beam is melting the ore, the metal goes molten about two inches in front of the beam. Also, the spikes are rounded, like handles. The molds he made would have left a flat side.

The Offspring - S3-E16

Other mistake: One of the physical appearances Lal considers adopting is an Andorian female with green skin. In the Trek universe, Andorians invariably have blue skin (the Aenar are a variant of the Andorian race but are depicted with bluish-white skin, still not green). And while other humanoid races have been portrayed with different skin tones, there are some races that have only one skin hue. (ie, Andorians are always blue, Orions are always green, Ferengi are always light orange.) It is highly unlikely she or Data designed it with different skin as Data wants her to fit in, and Troi makes no mention of it.

The Enemy - S3-E7

Other mistake: They beam up with the injured Romulan to the transporter room and Beverly says "let's get him to sickbay." They could have just beamed directly to sickbay.

The Drumhead - S4-E21

Other mistake: The ship warp core was damaged by an explosion earlier and was offline in the first 32 minutes of the episode. But the ship's CGI indicates that it was online all through the episode.

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.
