Star Trek: The Next Generation

All Good Things... (1) - S7-E25

Other mistake: When Picard first meets Data in the past, Data's rank insignia is wrong. He's always held the rank of Lieutenant Commander, signified by two gold pips, and one with black in the center. However, Data has one gold, one with black, signifying Lieutenant.

Gambit (2) - S7-E5

Other mistake: When the raiders' vessel fires on the Enterprise, only the starboard nacelle is hit. Right after the impact, Worf reports the port nacelle hit, then the starboard.

Emergence - S7-E23

Other mistake: When the ship is at max warp and Geordi states that at maximum warp the ship can only sustain two hours of emergency life support, Data, Troi and Worf are on the holodeck attempting to stop the train, but back in the bridge before they do you can see the view screen in the background and the bridge glass dome above Geordi, Picard and Riker that the ship is not moving at warp speed and is at standstill.

Timescape - S6-E25

Revealing mistake: As Picard goes to check the fuel consumption logs his right hand is in a closed fist. When he sits at a console and uses his right hand it already has the long nails he will get in the next few minutes when he reaches for the rotten fruit. (00:11:00)

Picard: Return that moon to its orbit.
Q: I have no powers! Q, the ordinary!

Q: Q, the miserable! Q, the desperate! What must I do to convince you people?
Worf: Die.

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.

Skin of Evil - S1-E23

Question: Near the end when they are in the holodeck for the memorial ceremony for Lt. Yar, Dr. Crusher's uniform is green and seconds later it is blue. After watching it several times, it does not appear to be a trick of the light. What happened here? Why would she have on a green uniform in the first place?

Chosen answer: The uniform does indeed change colour. It may be due to the need for a green screen in part, or perhaps some lighting altering our perception. That being said, it certainly looks green at the start, blue thereafter.

The show has been done in HD now and not sure if they fix this problem.
