Star Trek: The Next Generation

Contagion - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: As Worf goes to enter the portal to the Enterprise carrying Data, his right hand is free, and his left is holding Data's left hand. Appearing on the bridge, Worf's left hand is on Data's leg, his right hand on Data's wrist.

Movie Nut

Angel One - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: When Wesley Crusher and his school chum accidentally hit Picard with a snowball from the holodeck doorway, it makes a huge wet spot on the captain's left shoulder. However, when Picard tells them "Don't let it happen again," as he turns to walk away, the wet spot is now suddenly dry. (00:36:00)

Deja Q - S3-E13

Revealing mistake: On the bridge, as Q snaps his fingers to pop cigars into Riker and Picard's mouths, his hand and their positions change by a few inches. This shows the filming stopped to put the cigars into their mouths.

Cause and Effect - S5-E18

Factual error: When the starboard nacelle causes the ship to spin, the view of the stars on the main screen on the bridge should move toward the right side of the screen, rather than standing still.

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.

Movie Nut

Q Who? - S2-E16

Continuity mistake: When the security man gets tossed by the Borg, as he lands and rolls next to the far wall, his phaser falls out of the holster, and lands next to his shin. A second later, it's about two feet away from his leg.

Movie Nut

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.

Movie Nut

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.

Movie Nut

Tin Man - S3-E20

Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode, Deanna and Data are discussing what happened aboard Tin Man. He then turns around and she hugs him from behind. As she does, one of the buttons on Data's collar is missing, where it was there just a few seconds before.

Deja Q - S3-E13

Picard: Return that moon to its orbit.
Q: I have no powers! Q, the ordinary!
Picard: Q, the liar! Q, the misanthrope!
Q: Q, the miserable! Q, the desperate! What must I do to convince you people?
Worf: Die.

Trivia: Another joke from the set designers: whenever someone is in the Jeffries Tubes, you will see several pipes on the walls labeled "GNDN" this stands for "Goes Nowhere, Does Nothing."

Answer: He brought the Borg to the Alpha Quadrant and showed them that it was full of worlds waiting to be assimilated. Guinan's homeworld was their first stop, and they assimilated everyone and took over the planet, leaving The Survivors of her race without a home. Q is ultimately responsible for that.

Captain Defenestrator

By the time Q takes the Enterprise to meet the Borg, Guinan already knew who they were and they had already destroyed her world. Therefore the above answer can not be right. I believe Guinan is much more than she appears, and her people have had encounters with the Q in the past. It is these interactions, that obviously were not pleasant, that fuels her distrust.

oldbaldyone

That's what the above answer is saying. Q brought the Borg to the Alpha Quadrant (not Earth) and the Borg destroyed Guinan's home world in the late 2200's, which is why she hates Q. Although she met Q in 2160 and they both saw each other as enemies right away.
