Star Trek: The Next Generation

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. (00:24:10)

Peak Performance - S2-E21

Visible crew/equipment: As La Forge and Crusher leave the bridge, and the camera closes in on Riker, there's a shadow of a piece of filming equipment on the wall behind and to the left of his head, at the upper right of the shot.

The Measure of a Man - S2-E9

Visible crew/equipment: Data tells Maddox that he formally refuses to undergo the procedure, but he supports Maddox's intriguing ongoing work. After Maddox comments that Data is remarkable, Louvois takes note that Maddox referred to Data as "he" instead of "it," and when Louvois walks toward Picard the blue tape mark is visible on the floor where she stands.

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. (00:07:20 - 00:10:40)

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)

More trivia for Star Trek: The Next Generation

Answer: He brought the Borg to the Alpha Quadrant and showed them that it was full of worlds waiting to be assimilated. Guinan's homeworld was their first stop, and they assimilated everyone and took over the planet, leaving The Survivors of her race without a home. Q is ultimately responsible for that.

Captain Defenestrator

By the time Q takes the Enterprise to meet the Borg, Guinan already knew who they were and they had already destroyed her world. Therefore the above answer can not be right. I believe Guinan is much more than she appears, and her people have had encounters with the Q in the past. It is these interactions, that obviously were not pleasant, that fuels her distrust.

oldbaldyone

That's what the above answer is saying. Q brought the Borg to the Alpha Quadrant (not Earth) and the Borg destroyed Guinan's home world in the late 2200's, which is why she hates Q. Although she met Q in 2160 and they both saw each other as enemies right away.
