Star Trek: The Next Generation

Rascals - S6-E7

Continuity mistake: When young Picard sees his "father" Riker, he says to turn on the computer in schoolroom 8. In the scene showing the children gaining access to the computer, the terminal they are at shows classroom 7 across the header of the screen. (00:36:20 - 00:39:55)

Timescape - S6-E25

Plot hole: Wouldn't Worf have known that the distress call was coming from a Romulan ship long before Riker arrived on the bridge?

Schisms - S6-E5

Continuity mistake: Just before Riker jumps through the portal with the female crew member he rescues, his phaser falls out of its holster, yet when he lands back in cargo bay 4 his phaser is right there in the holster.

Second Chances - S6-E24

Continuity mistake: In one scene on the planet, Riker's clone is lying under a table fixing something and Riker is sitting in a chair talking to him. There are two camera angles used. In one angle when the clone is talking and a body double is sitting in the chair he is facing directly towards the table but in the other camera angle where you can only see Riker, the chair is at an angle facing towards where his clone is lying on the floor.

Lessons - S6-E19

Other mistake: After Picard joins Cmdr. Darrin in the junction, she kneels down. As she does, the opening down the Jeffries tube can be seen as a flat matte painting. (00:18:09)

Second Chances - S6-E24

Continuity mistake: William Riker is playing cards with La Forge and Worf. The camera is focusing on Riker and there is no 4th chair. When Tom Riker enters, William says "Why don't you join us" and now removes his trombone from the 4th chair which has suddenly appeared. (00:31:25)

True Q - S6-E6

Revealing mistake: On the bridge, Data is reporting to Picard some info the captain wanted. As he does, the dome over the Captain's chair is totally devoid of stars, where other episodes have had stars showing through.

True Q - S6-E6

Revealing mistake: In the cargo bay, as Riker stands alone, through the whole scene where a case is about to hit him, you can tell it's a stuntman with a bad wig.

True Q - S6-E6

Continuity mistake: As Geordi talks to Ms. Rogers, Riker is walking in the background by some containers and a crewman in blue. After a cut to Ms. Rogers, Riker is suddenly alone with a data pad.

Man of the People - S6-E3

Continuity mistake: When Deanna is trying to seduce Riker, she scratches him and there are three deep scratches on his neck. Later, when Doctor Crusher treats him, one of the scratches is now on his cheek, and only two are on his neck.

Other mistake: In engineering shortly before Troi and Picard appear, Data walks over to the pool table in the middle of the room. There's a panel missing from the centre of it. (00:24:00)

Relics - S6-E4

Other mistake: When Scotty goes to the holodeck to visit the original Enterprise, the computer tells him there are 5 Federation vessels with that name. (NX-01 served before the founding of the Federation so this is technically correct.) Scotty specifies NCC-1701, "no A, B, C or D." The computer then tells him the program is ready. The computer should have asked him if he wanted pre or post refit NCC-1701. The ship we see in the Original Series was rebuilt/refit into the ship we see in The Motion Picture.

Qpid - S4-E20

Worf: Captain, I must protest. I am not a merry man.

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.

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.
