The Big Goodbye - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: The lipstick on Picard changes between when he is kissed, and later when he leaves the holodeck (it's darker and on and above his lips.) Also, and more importantly, being holodeck matter, it should have disappeared after re-emerging in the real world.

The Naked Now - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When Geordi is put onto a bed in sickbay there are two pillows - when he gets up to leave a little later they have disappeared.

The Naked Now - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: At the very beginning of the Episode, Picard makes a log entry stating that the Enterprise is heading for the USS Tsiolkovsky at warp seven. Subsequent outside shots of the ship show it is traveling at impulse.

The Naked Now - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When Data brings up a picture of the original Kirk-era Enterprise in conjunction with the log talking about the water-intoxicant, the picture is of the refitted movie-style Enterprise - not the original round-nacelled model that was involved in the events of "The Naked Time."

The Naked Now - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: While Troi and Yar are talking while holding hands in Troi's quarters, there is a piece of cloth between their hands in one camera angle, but in another camera angle, there is nothing between their hands.

Skin of Evil - S1-E23

Continuity mistake: Several episodes have stardates after this episode, but still have Tasha Yar in them (even though she dies in this episode). They aired before this episode. The series producers later formalized their stardate system so that they take place in the order the episodes air.

The Big Goodbye - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: When the two holographic villains are disintegrating outside the holodeck, there is a corridor opposite the holodeck. When the good guys exit a minute later, there is suddenly a solid wall.

Angel One - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: Watch when Geordi on the bridge calls up Dr. Crusher in Sick Bay. There's a white-haired medical assistant working on someone behind Geordi. Then when Dr. Crusher responds to Geordi's page, the same assistant is down in Sick Bay with her. Then they cut back to Geordi and the assistant is back up on the bridge again.

When The Bough Breaks - S1-E17

Continuity mistake: When Wesley is being introduced to the Companion, the camera zooms in to see the entire console up on the full screen with NO hands on it, but when it cuts to a side view, Radue's wife's hands are on the console.

Datalore - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the episode, right after Lore fires the phaser at Dr. Crusher, Data tackles Lore and knocks the phaser out of Lore's hand. The phaser flies towards the cargo transporter and when it impacts, it breaks in two. You can see a piece of it go flying off to the left. Then shortly after when Data throws Lore onto the transporter pad and Lore picks up the phaser, it's in one piece again.

Coming of Age - S1-E19

Continuity mistake: On his way to the Farewell party, Picard is seen wearing his dress uniform, but no pips on it. There should be four.

Skin of Evil - S1-E23

Continuity mistake: When the away team encounters the evil oily blob thing, it makes their equipment fly away. Later they have apparently recovered it. But strange things keep happening to Geordi's weapon: when he and the others run forward to rescue Riker, Geordi accidentally drops it in the black pool when he stops abruptly. Admittedly, you can't prove that's a mistake even though it has no purpose in the story. But shortly afterwards the phaser is back on Geordi's belt, clean. Did the sticky, malicious, bullying blob give it back just like that? (People often try and find justifications for mistakes, but in this case, wishful thinking can only give us an extremely unlikely explanation.)

Encounter at Farpoint (1) - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Commander Data tells Picard the Saucer Section will arrive in 51 minutes. Riker's synopsis audio can be heard in the background without interruption, and shortly after Data says this, the cameras turn back to Riker and the Video synopsis ends. Riker immediately reports to Picard who then receives the message that the Saucer Section is in orbit. Now, Riker was watching highlights of video footage from the Bridge, of which we see almost all of it because there really wouldn't be that much to view. And that's really all he could watch since we don't have cameras in the "Q-verse" and we see the footage ending with the Q sphere chasing the ship. Also, the entire ordeal was far less than an hour so there's no way a highlight reel could take an hour, not to mention the uninterrupted audio. We seem to be missing almost an entire hour.

Datalore - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: As Lore opens a channel, there's a blinking red light over the key he uses that disappears after the angle change.

Encounter at Farpoint (1) - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: As Q comes into the courtroom on his floating dais, he goes to his right and gestures to the people to sit. He then starts to his left, and puts his hand down. After the angle cuts to Picard's point of view, as Q goes left his hand is dropping to the arm rest again.

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.

Heart of Glory - S1-E20

Continuity mistake: On the freighter, when Geordi looks at Data, the image on the Bridge view screen has Data's hair in an unkempt, or unusual style. When the scene shifts back to the freighter, Data's hair is straight back.

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.
