Star Trek: The Next Generation

Hero Worship - S5-E11

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Data is brushing Timothy's hair into a copy of his own hairstyle, he stops, kneels down and asks Timothy "Timothy, are you having bad dreams?" In this shot there is a big tuft of hair on the right side of Timothy's head that sticks straight out. When their conversation is over and Data stands up in the wider shot, all of Timothy's hair is in place.

Ensign Ro - S5-E3

Continuity mistake: When Ro and Picard are among Ro's people and she gives her jacket to a child (saying something like 'this is what I was, once') she never removes her commbadge. However, there's a commbadge neatly placed on her grey tank top - even though she didn't even remove it from the jacket, let alone put it on her shirt.

Cause and Effect - S5-E18

Continuity mistake: In the very first scene, where Data is shuffling the cards, you can see his silver and gold chips are neatly stacked up straight. The camera then cuts to Commander Riker and then back to Data and his chips are crooked at the top and at the bottom.

Ensign Ro - S5-E3

Continuity mistake: When Picard is getting his haircut and Riker calls, the apron changes position depending on the shot. Sometimes it fully covers his uniform, other times a part is sticking out.

Ensign Ro - S5-E3

Continuity mistake: When Picard, Ro and the others arrive at the refugee camp to meet with Keeve Falor, the type of uniform top Ro is wearing has its zipper at the back in the center - with no seam whatsoever at the front. When she kneels down in front of The Child, it has changed to the open-front jacket type, so Ro can touchingly give it to The Child.

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)

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.
