Star Trek: The Next Generation

In Theory - S4-E25

Other mistake: In performing the "Lover's Quarrel" part, Data uses contractions, i.e, "don't" and "you're." When Jenna asks about it, he responds "You are not my mother", eliminating the contraction.

Suggested correction: This scene is set in the past (as you said). At this time Data was a Lt. JG.

No, Data was not Lt. Junior Grade at this point in the past. This was when they were going on the Far Point mission and Data already had the rank of Lt. Commander.

Suddenly Human - S4-E4

Character mistake: Captain Picard wonders why the boy would want to go back to his captors if they abuse him and Dr. Crusher tells him it's not uncommon, it's called the Stockholm Syndrome as if Picard doesn't know or understand. However, in S03E12, "The High Ground", Dr. Crusher is held captive and when Picard is talking to her (after he is captured trying to rescue her), she begins to appear sympathetic to her captors and Picard says "I don't have to remind you of the psychological impact of being a hostage." Picard would be aware of why the boy may wish to return.

All Good Things... (1) - S7-E25

Other mistake: When Picard first meets Data in the past, Data's rank insignia is wrong. He's always held the rank of Lieutenant Commander, signified by two gold pips, and one with black in the center. However, Data has one gold, one with black, signifying Lieutenant.

Rascals - S6-E7

Continuity mistake: When young Picard sees his "father" Riker, he says to turn on the computer in schoolroom 8. In the scene showing the children gaining access to the computer, the terminal they are at shows classroom 7 across the header of the screen. (00:36:20 - 00:39:55)

Peak Performance - S2-E21

Visible crew/equipment: As La Forge and Crusher leave the bridge, and the camera closes in on Riker, there's a shadow of a piece of filming equipment on the wall behind and to the left of his head, at the upper right of the shot.

Conspiracy - S1-E25

Continuity mistake: As the ship enters Sector 63, there's a shot of the Conn and Ops positions and the screen. Geordi is in the right chair, the left is empty. Data is nowhere on the bridge, but when as Picard walks forward, Data's arm is suddenly in position.

Time's Arrow (1) - S5-E26

Character mistake: When the artifacts from the late 19th century, found in a cave, are identified by the away team, Data identifies the pistol as a "double action" Colt 45, circa 1873. The pistol is a Colt single action army, caliber .45. Certainly not a "double action".

Devil's Due - S4-E13

Continuity mistake: As the camera does a close up on the shuttle craft's forward window as it approaches the Enterprise, the dorsal section is seen getting larger the closer they get. As Data and Picard talk, the image fades out, and a minute later, the angle changes, the dorsal section is again seen getting bigger, and the ship disappears.

I, Borg - S5-E23

Character mistake: When Commander Riker is assembling his away team to visit the planet's surface, he orders Dr. Crusher to bring a medical team. But when the away team is beamed down, Crusher is the only medical officer there.

11001001 - S1-E15

Plot hole: The crew makes no attempt to re-board the Enterprise or stop it from leaving the starbase even after they find out there is no danger from the anti-matter.

Timescape - S6-E25

Plot hole: Wouldn't Worf have known that the distress call was coming from a Romulan ship long before Riker arrived on the bridge?

Relics - S6-E4

Scotty: [to Holodeck Computer] The Enterprise. Show me the bridge of the Enterprise, ya chatterin' piece o'...
Computer: There have been five Federation vessels with that name. Please state by registry number.
Scotty: [slowly] N, C, C, 1, 7, 0, 1. No bloody A, B, C, or D.

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."

More trivia for Star Trek: The Next Generation

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.
