Star Trek: The Next Generation

Yesterday's Enterprise - S3-E15

Continuity mistake: In the episode 'Yesterday's Enterprise' (season three, episode 15), watch the final scene with Geordi and Guinan in Ten-Forward. Although time and the universe has returned to normal, Geordi is still wearing the uniform from the alternate timeline (note the sleeve detail, and the extended neck piece).

Sarek - S3-E23

Factual error: The second piece of music played at the concert is by Brahms and not Mozart.

The Enemy - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: After Wesley makes his neutrino pulse suggestion, Picard tells him to go do it. Wesley walks off camera. Then there's a commercial break, and Wesley is back on the bridge in the long shots. A few minutes later we hear the turbo-lift and Wesley walks back onto the bridge.

The Enemy - S3-E7

Visible crew/equipment: When Riker first beams down he uses a flashlight - if you look closely you can see the electrical cord that runs down his sleeve to an off-screen generator.

The Best of Both Worlds (1) - S3-E26

Revealing mistake: During the phaser battle on the Borg ship, a detonation wire is seen attached to the right foot of the drone that Beverly kills.

The Enemy - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: When Geordi falls down the hole in the beginning of the episode his visor is seen to his right. When he wakes up he finds it to his left.

Yesterday's Enterprise - S3-E15

Visible crew/equipment: During the scan of the temporal rift at the beginning of the episode, the tip of the microphone briefly comes into view at the top of the screen above Captain Picard's head when Data says, "Nothing I have seen before." [Not visible in the remastered Blu-ray version].

Who Watches The Watchers - S3-E4

Revealing mistake: About 38 minutes into the show, when Dr. Mary Warren dies and there's a close up of Picard & Nuria, you can see the her hand moving up and down as she breathes.

Evolution - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: In the processor room, the magnifier is centered on Data's fingers toward the palm, but the close up shows it was centered on the finger tip.

Movie Nut

Evolution - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: In the opening sequence, the ship is positioned so that Shuttle Bay Two is aimed at the phenomena. But a moment later, the ship is facing into the stellar material.

Movie Nut

Deja Q - S3-E13

Continuity mistake: As Q approaches Picard and Riker's position while playing a trumpet, both of Q's hands are on the horn. A second later, his left hand is down by his side. Then, after he makes cigars appear in Picard and Riker's mouths, his left hand is extended as he says the first part of his lines. A second later, both hands are on his horn.

Deja Q - S3-E13

Revealing mistake: On the bridge, as Q snaps his fingers to pop cigars into Riker and Picard's mouths, his hand and their positions change by a few inches. This shows the filming stopped to put the cigars into their mouths.

Movie Nut

Deja Q - S3-E13

Continuity mistake: On the bridge, as Picard addresses him, Q turns his head to face him. After the angle change, he does it again without having turned it away.

The Price - S3-E8

Continuity mistake: When talking to Ral, Riker takes a sip of his drink, sets the glass down, and clasps his hands. A second later, he repeats clasping his hands.

Movie Nut

The Best of Both Worlds (1) - S3-E26

Other mistake: When O'Brien activates the transporter, only the very bottom indicator lights come on, even as he moves his hand up. Usually the indicator lights match the movement of the hand.

Movie Nut

The Most Toys - S3-E22

Character mistake: When Geordi, Picard, and Riker are discussing Data's shuttle accident in Picard's ready room, Picard addresses Geordi as "Lieutenant." In the American navy (which Starfleet is adapted from), a Lieutenant Commander like Geordi is addressed as "Commander", as it is higher in rank than a regular Lieutenant.

Tin Man - S3-E20

Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode, Deanna and Data are discussing what happened aboard Tin Man. He then turns around and she hugs him from behind. As she does, one of the buttons on Data's collar is missing, where it was there just a few seconds before.

Tin Man - S3-E20

Continuity mistake: While Tam is talking to Deanna and sits down, he says "You understood... at least a little, how I felt." While saying this, he places his left hand on his right leg. While still saying that same line, it cuts to an angle from beside Deanna and his left hand is suddenly between his legs.

Tin Man - S3-E20

Continuity mistake: To view their orders and mission, Data puts a drive into the Enterprise's computer while standing with Riker and Geordi. Riker is seen standing but leaning casually away from Data on Data's right, and Geordi is standing off to Data's left. It then cuts show the computer screen, and the three men are reflected in it. The reflection shows that Riker is suddenly almost leaning over Data's shoulder, and Geordi has moved to standing behind Data's left shoulder.

Tin Man - S3-E20

Revealing mistake: Just after Riker and Geordi are talking in the turbo lift, it cuts to a view from outside the ship and shows the USS Hood flying next to the USS Enterprise. As the ships draw nearer, the views of both ships overlap, and a black mat outline can be seen around the saucer section of the Hood as it passes by the Enterprise's starboard nacelle.

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.
