Star Trek: The Next Generation

The Big Goodbye - S1-E12

Revealing mistake: When Picard looks out the window of the Dixon Hill office he sees the cars passing by each other, the traffic light is right in front of the window as if the entire building is not only in the middle of the street but only one story high.

Datalore - S1-E13

Revealing mistake: After Data leaves Lore in his quarters, as the doors close, the grain of the wood is plainly visible in the strong lighting. The doors were supposed to be a sleek material.

Movie Nut

The Neutral Zone - S1-E26

Revealing mistake: In the sickbay, the wall where the biobeds are located can be easily seen as a wall used for what would be in the Conference lounge. The alcoves have a fabric covering the windows, and it appeared to be a hastily done redress.

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.

Tin Man - S3-E20

Revealing mistake: Just after Riker and Geordi are talking in the turbo lift, it cuts to a view from outside the ship and shows the USS Hood flying next to the USS Enterprise. As the ships draw nearer, the views of both ships overlap, and a black mat outline can be seen around the saucer section of the Hood as it passes by the Enterprise's starboard nacelle.

The Royale - S2-E12

Factual error: 30 seconds in Geordi says: 'surface temperature -291 degrees Celsius'. (The scale only goes down to -273.15 which is absolute zero). (00:00:30)

Worf: Captain, I must protest. I am not a merry man.

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."

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.
