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).

Q Who? - S2-E16

Visible crew/equipment: In the observation lounge, you can see a shadow from a crew person on armrest of the chair on the bottom left of the screen. Hard to see, but definitely there.

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.]

Peak Performance - S2-E21

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.

Loud as a Whisper - S2-E5

Other mistake: When Data is interpreting between Captain Picard and Riva, he uses signs for words Captain Picard has not yet spoken, and voices concepts before Riva has signed them. He also doesn't interpret everything the Captain and counselor Troi say.

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.

Loud as a Whisper - S2-E5

Visible crew/equipment: After Picard, Troi, and Worf have beamed down to the planet to meet Riva, when Harmony asks if they need food or refreshments, just as Picards says, "Thank you, no," a crewmember's elbow can be seen at the left side of the screen (this one is not visible on the Netflix version). Then when Troi says, "Your method of communication is elegant and quite beautiful," a crewmember (likely the same one as earlier) can be seen at the left side of the screen.

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.

Suggested correction: At impulse speeds, there would be no visible indication of movement as they're in open space.

Jason Hoffman

This is incorrect. In-universe has shown the difference between a moving ship and stationary ship, even open space.

Bishop73

Exactly what is this difference you're referring to? If a ship is moving at sub-light speeds with only stars visible it is impossible to tell how fast it is moving, or even if it is moving. The only movement visible would be that imparted by the difference in movements of the camera and ship. (In fact, they create of the illusion of the ship speeding by by moving the camera past a stationary ship.) This is reality. If there is an error, it is the fact that the stars can be seen moving outside the hanger bay door which would indicate the ship was slowly rotating.

Samaritan Snare - S2-E17

Other mistake: After the report that Picard is close to death, the scene shifts to a close up of La Forge's hand turning on controls. If you look closely, you can see that both panels are re-purposed CANX-23429 remote control units. The markings are for volume, radio, transmitter, receiver, phone jacks and a microphone jack.

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.
