Star Trek: The Next Generation

Realm of Fear - S6-E2

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Barcley reappears on the transporter with the crewmember, they both fall to the ground. The transporter chief had put up a forcefield around the transporter chamber, in case something goes wrong. However, when the crewmember falls to the ground, his foot goes right through where the forcefield is meant to be. It is still active, as only a few seconds later we see it being deactivated.

The Game - S5-E6

Revealing mistake: In season 5, "The Game," the brainwashed crew members hold Wesley's eyes open to force him to see the mind-controlling game. Their intention is to prevent him from closing his eyes, which would protect him from the device. While they are doing this, he blinks.

Timescape - S6-E25

Revealing mistake: As Picard goes to check the fuel consumption logs his right hand is in a closed fist. When he sits at a console and uses his right hand it already has the long nails he will get in the next few minutes when he reaches for the rotten fruit. (00:11:00)

The Naked Now - S1-E3

Movie Nut

True Q - S6-E6

Revealing mistake: In Amanda's quarters, when she repulses Q, as he flies toward the corner, you can tell it is his stunt double.

Lessons - S6-E19

Revealing mistake: When Picard and Cmdr. Daron are in Picard's quarters together for the first time, watch Picard play his Inner Light theme. The hands playing the flute are obviously not his.

Contagion - S2-E11

Revealing mistake: When Geordi closes the 'dead' Data's eyes, it is obvious that he just passes his hand above Data's face, without touching his eyelids.

J I Cohen

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

Revealing mistake: During the phaser battle on the Borg ship, a detonation wire is seen attached to the right foot of the drone that Beverly kills.

Where Silence Has Lease - S2-E2

Conspiracy - S1-E25

Revealing mistake: As Riker swings on Quinn, and a moment later, tossed onto a glass table, both times it can be seen that it's Riker's stunt double.

Movie Nut

Interface - S7-E3

Revealing mistake: In the shot where Geordie walks into the bridge of his mother's ship and finds that everyone is dead, if you look closely at the bottom right of the screen as Geordie is walking into the bridge you can see that one of the containers on the ground is quickly moved into place by a woman who is dead. (00:13:40)

Genesis - S7-E19

Revealing mistake: About 38 minutes into the show, when Dr. Mary Warren dies and there's a close up of Picard & Nuria, you can see the her hand moving up and down as she breathes.

TrickyNick

Coming of Age - S1-E19

Revealing mistake: In the corridor, as Wesley faces the Zaldan, the hallway behind the scene is obviously a painting due to the shadow of the support on the edges.

Movie Nut

The Big Goodbye - S1-E12

Revealing mistake: As Data looks at the information on Dixon Hill, as the computer flash feeds, you can see that it's all the same block of information starting with the title of the first novel, which is the title of the episode, "The Big Goodbye."

Movie Nut

True Q - S6-E6

Revealing mistake: On the bridge, Data is reporting to Picard some info the captain wanted. As he does, the dome over the Captain's chair is totally devoid of stars, where other episodes have had stars showing through.

Movie Nut

True Q - S6-E6

Revealing mistake: In the cargo bay, as Riker stands alone, through the whole scene where a case is about to hit him, you can tell it's a stuntman with a bad wig.
