Star Trek: The Next Generation

Show generally

Continuity mistake: The creators re-did the titles from the third season on, but only from before the shot of the ringed planet, and they didn't make sure they matched. Compare the movement of the stars inside the rings and the star field outside the rings - they move in different directions compared to each other.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: The view of the starfield in the ship's windows is always inconsistent whenever they are orbiting a planet. Sometimes the stars appear to be moving by, and sometimes they are completely static.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In the early episodes, Geordi's rank is inconsistent. In "Encounter at Farpoint", he is a full lieutenant. In subsequent episodes, he is a lieutenant junior grade, before being promoted back to full lieutenant.

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)

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.

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.
