Star Trek: The Next Generation

The Emissary - S2-E20

Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the episode, Riker, Geordi, Worf, Data, and Pulaski are playing poker. Pulaski puts two neat stacks of chips in the center beside some chips in a pile. It then shows Worf putting similar stacks in the center but Pulaski's stacks are not visible and they should be. Then when Worf wins the hand, the camera is showing a wide shot of him pulling the chips towards him and you can see his and Pulaski's neat stacks of chips.

Up The Long Ladder - S2-E18

Continuity mistake: The Bringloidi leader keeps saying that they've spent 300 years building their society, but this episode takes place in 2365, and it's stated that his ship launched in 2123, making it 200 years.

A Matter of Honor - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: Klingons measure distance in kilometers in this episode. However, in all other Trek shows and movies, they measure in kellicams. [This was apparently during a misguided attempt by the Empire to adopt the decimal system (for Galactic consistency), even though the change was wildy unpopular with the public and military alike. While some ships, like in this episode, gave it a good try, the change was short-lived and eventually abandoned. However, until this claim can be backed up by a reference within Star Trek canon, it stands as a mistake.]

The Royale - S2-E12

Continuity mistake: As the Texan follows the dice on Data's last throw, his glasses are on. As he complains about losing his bet, his glasses are suddenly missing.

Samaritan Snare - S2-E17

Continuity mistake: Wesley says that he's departing shuttle bay 2, but on the floor, it says shuttle bay 3.

Unnatural Selection - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: Looking at the shuttlecraft while sitting in the shuttle bay and after it has departed the Enterprise, you can tell they are different types of shuttles. The one in the shuttle bay has more angular lines with straight edges. The one outside the Enterprise has more curves than angles to its lines.

Time Squared - S2-E13

Continuity mistake: When the original Picard shoots the duplicate Picard with a phaser in the shuttlebay, he shoots him square in the chest. But in later shots, the scorch marks from the phaser are on his abdomen area.

Pen Pals - S2-E15

Continuity mistake: As Picard and Troi enter the holodeck, the horse Picard ordered is outfitted with the saddle and tack requested. When they get to the horse, the saddle is on the post the horse is tied to.

Movie Nut

The Measure of a Man - S2-E9

Continuity mistake: When Data bends the bar, he does so much that the sides are almost parallel with a very acute angle. When Riker puts it on the desk, it's much more curved and the sides aren't as parallel anymore.

Q Who? - S2-E16

Continuity mistake: When Picard first looks around Ten Forward, there's nothing on the bar. When Guinan pops up, there's suddenly two glasses that are about two feet apart. When Picard sits at the bar, the glasses are now six to eight inches apart.

Movie Nut

Pen Pals - S2-E15

Continuity mistake: As the ship fires the torpedoes, the familiar registry number on the underside of the saucer is completely missing.

Movie Nut

Loud as a Whisper - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the episode, as they are preparing to beam down to the planet, Riker tells Warf to set his phaser on stun. He then holsters his own phaser and the transporter is activated. However, when they materialize on the planet, Riker is holding his phaser in his left hand.

Jason Hoffman

Contagion - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: As Worf goes to enter the portal to the Enterprise carrying Data, his right hand is free, and his left is holding Data's left hand. Appearing on the bridge, Worf's left hand is on Data's leg, his right hand on Data's wrist.

Movie Nut

Q Who? - S2-E16

Continuity mistake: When the security man gets tossed by the Borg, as he lands and rolls next to the far wall, his phaser falls out of the holster, and lands next to his shin. A second later, it's about two feet away from his leg.

Movie Nut

Samaritan Snare - S2-E17

Continuity mistake: As La Forge prepares to transport the Pakled shoots him. He reacts, and a second later reacts again.

Movie Nut

Q Who? - S2-E16

Continuity mistake: In the Shuttle, Q's hair is arranged in bangs on his forehead. A split second later in Ten Forward, his hair is up and back from his forehead in the familiar style.

Suggested correction: Q's powers has shown in the past that he can change his looks in an instance, as well as his location and anyone else he chooses. This is precisely what happens here.

The Child - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: When checking Ian's pulse, Pulaski reaches out with her left hand, but her right arm retracts after the angle change.

Movie Nut

Where Silence Has Lease - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: When Riker and Worf are beamed off the Yomato, Riker is on the left of Worf. When they materialize, Riker is on Worf's right.
