Star Trek: The Next Generation

Up The Long Ladder - S2-E18

Corrected entry: When the head Bringloidi starts a fire in the hold, Lt. Worf informs him that a force field will cover the fire until it is extinguished. But in many later episodes you see fires burning, and nothing happens. At most, they will let the air out of the room, but no force fields.

Correction: The fire suppression systems are known to fail when a ship has taken a lot of damage. There has even been an occurrence of an officer stating, "Fire suppression systems are not functioning."

Elementary, Dear Data - S2-E3

Corrected entry: Data takes a holographic paper off the holodeck.

Correction: It is often explained that the holodeck uses a combination of holographic projection, transporter, and replication technology to achieve its illusions. This is why people on the holodeck are able to eat food created there. Something like paper would be easily replicated as real and so could leave the holodeck. Living beings are much more complex.

Q Who? - S2-E16

Corrected entry: Worf says the Borg have locked on a tractor beam, but in the next exterior shot there is no tractor beam visible between the two ships. Later there is.

Correction: Stating that it is locked on is not the same as stating it is engaged. For example, there are numerous occasions where they detect that phasers have been locked but have not yet been engaged/fired.

The Dauphin - S2-E10

Corrected entry: After viewing the clash between the governess and her protector, the camera shows Wesley. His communicator badge is completely silver, instead of the standard gold and silver.

xx:xx:xx

Correction: This is not a mistake. Wesley's entire combadge was silver (arrowhead AND oval) from the beginning of Season 2, when he received the provisional officer's uniform. He did not receive a gold-oval combadge until his full promotion to Ensign, which also brought a standard uniform.

The Schizoid Man - S2-E6

Corrected entry: The Stargazer model in Picard's office changes position each time someone visits him - facing right, then left, then right again.

Correction: Picard may take every free moment he can to 'toy' with the model of his former ship. He has fond memories of it, including creating the famed 'Picard Maneuver' aboard her. He's under no responsibility to put it back exactly as found when doing this. No error.

Where Silence Has Lease - S2-E2

Corrected entry: In this episode, the number of the USS Yamato is given as "NCC 1305 E." However, in the episode "Contagion," from later in season 2, the number is given as "NCC 71807."

Correction: The Yamato seen in When Silence Has Lease is not the real ship, but a replica created as part of a test for the Enterprise crew by the Nagilum - as part of the testing process, it contains numerous inaccuracies, such as being made from the wrong materials and has many alterations to the layout of the regular ship, including multiple versions of the bridge. The incorrect registry code is just one of these differences from the original. Later in the season, in Contagion, we see the real ship, which obviously carries the correct registry code.

Elementary, Dear Data - S2-E3

Corrected entry: When Data hands Geordi the paper with the image of the Enterprise on it, Geordi looks at the picture then turns it over. However, when he flips the picture it is the right way up, so it means that Geordi has been looking at the picture upside down.

Correction: Geordi is intimatly familier with the Enterprise. He can recognize it no matter how it is oriented.

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.
