Star Trek: Voyager

Year of Hell (2) - S4-E9

New this month Other mistake: When we see the now blind Tuvok shaving, he is using a metal blade, the type still used today, and promptly cuts himself with it. However in TNG, Geordi La Forge (also blind, but using a VISOR) is shown using a bladeless razor with a little light beam that wouldn't cut him. One of these should be available on Voyager, over 10 years later. Lack of power can't a problem, as Tuvok had the lights in his room on the whole time, despite not needing them on account of being blind.

New this month Suggested correction: It has been shown on a number of occasions that some species and cultures prefer to use a blade to shave. Vulcans do so as part of their mental control.

Drone - S5-E2

Deliberate mistake: When the Doctor begins to "fade" in the transporter room his mobile emitter fades with him. Since it's made of solid matter and is not a hologram, this shouldn't be possible.

Future's End (2) - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: As Starling prepares to launch the timeship from the bay behind his office, there is a shot of the exterior of the ship. In the background of this shot, there is a white wall on the right. This wall carries the company name and logo. However the name is misspelled here as Chronowerks, instead of Chronowerx as was shown on the outside of the building and behind Starling and Janeway when they were in the office.

Human Error - S7-E18

Audio problem: When Chakotay comes into Seven's quarters at some stage, the comm badge sound is used, not the standard door chime sound.

Caretaker (1) - S1-E1

Revealing mistake: If you look carefully when Neelix shoots the bins of water causing the water to rush out you can see a faucet opening on one of the bins.

Parallax - S1-E3

Plot hole: To escape the 'event horizon', a rupture in it is widened to 120 meters (which allows 2 meters clearance on each side of the ship). Soon after, the rupture has shrunk to 110 meters wide, and Janeway decides to 'punch through' anyway. The ship does so with little difficulty, but the whole issue seems pointless since the rupture was far larger 'vertically' than 'horizontally' (relative to the view from the ship), so tipping the ship on its side would have allowed plenty of clearance to slip right through.

Caretaker (1) - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: The registry on the shuttle that brings Paris to Voyager keeps changing between "NCC 71225" and "NCC 1701-D".

The Swarm - S3-E4

Other mistake: The Doctor scrubs his hands before an operation. He should not have to do this. He is a hologram. He could just dematerialize himself and be rematerialized if he's concerned about contamination.

Basics (1) - S2-E26

Plot hole: The Voyager was continuously attacked by small Kazon attack ships. Yet the Captain never orders to increase the warp speed to evade them (In previous episodes we saw that the Voyager has much higher max speed than any ship in Kazon arsenal). They simply travel at a lousy Warp 2 and wait to be attacked. It would make sense to travel slowly if they were trying to avoid being detected by Kazon but that was not the case. They were attacked constantly. Voayger may be more maneuverable at slower speeds but if you can outrun your pursuers there is no need to maneuver to avoid them. Also, if Voyager was traveling at a higher Warp Speed, there would be no way for the Kazon to array fighter craft ahead of Voyager as they would not be able to overtake Voyager. If they could, there would be no reason to deploy the fighter ships, they could simply engage with their capitol ships.

Shattered - S7-E11

Plot hole: It's stated that only objects or people infused with the chronoton serum can pass through the time barriers, which is why the equipment belts and hyposprays had to be specially modified (these wouldn't be needed if the chronotons were producing a protective field wider than the infused object). But some un-infused artificial objects, such as clothing and com-badges, can pass through them without vanishing. This is most obviously seen in the scene when Chakotay pulls the captain through the barrier, since he doesn't even wait long enough for the serum to spread throughout her entire body, yet alone to perspire into her uniform.

Season 1 generally

Continuity mistake: Tuvok and Paris' rank seems to skip around during the first season. Despite being listed in the credits as 'Lieutenant Tuvok', Tuvok starts the show as a Lieutenant Commander, with the signatory three collar pips, one black and two gold. At certain points, however, he is seen with only two gold pips (signifying Senior Grade Lieutenant). After season one he remains a Lt. Commander with no reason for the lack of continuity offered. Similarly, Paris starts the show as a Senior Grade Lieutenant, but sometimes instead of two gold pips he has one gold and one black, the signifier of a Junior Grade Lieutenant. After season one he is always presented as a Junior Grade, excluding his brief demotion to the rank of Ensign in a later series.

Fury - S6-E23

Character mistake: At the start, Captain Janeway reveals that she has discovered Tuvok's birthday. Then she says it's not long before he hits the big 3-digits (meaning 100 years old). However, Tuvok was 107 when he infiltrated the Maquis and they've already spent 6 years on Voyager. Even if she didn't discover his birth year and was only guessing. Tuvok would not have replied with "indeed" but pointed out she is wrong.

Suggested correction: We don't know whether they are speaking in terms of Earth years or Vulcan years.

The Omega Directive - S4-E21

Continuity mistake: When Seven gives her log entry at the beginning of the episode, she lists the Star Date as 15781.2. This is a misstatement of the correct star date, 51781.2.

Emanations - S1-E9

Factual error: To protect the warp core, Janeway instructs Paris to move away from the rings at Warp 7. Moments later (Janeway, Torres and Tuvok are still in the same position), Paris tells Janeway they are 0.6 light years away from the rings. Warp 7 is 656 times the speed of light. It would take about 8 hours to travel 0.6 light years at Warp 7.

Alice - S6-E5

Continuity mistake: When Tom explains to Alice why he can't leave the Voyager, he has a three-day beard. Later in the ship, when Alice convinces him to turn on the neurological interface, he is cleanly shaved. But in the next scene he has his beard back again.

Real Life - S3-E22

Revealing mistake: When Tom is reading the Klingon romance novel, he presses the button to turn the page, yet the text is always the same.

Workforce (2) - S7-E17

Continuity mistake: When Neelix shows Torres her own quarters, her bat'leth can be seen in the background. It's a run of the mill bat'leth, unlike the one she actually hung up in 'Prophecy', which was gunmetal and had a spike in the middle.

Unimatrix Zero (2) - S7-E1

Plot hole: Tuvok says that he was born on Stardate 38774. But he was born in 2264, when Stardates were only counted in the thousands, not the tens of thousands. If he were really born on SD 38774, that would mean he was born only a few years before the Enterprise-D was launched.

Alliances - S2-E14

Plot hole: Voyager has been traveling home for months on a long trip home presumably at high warp most of the time. However in this episode every kazon first maje is able to catch up to them in a short time frame.

Suggested correction: Voyager is not able to maintain high warp speeds indefinitely, as this would cause damage to the engines. Plus the ship will need to resupply fuel and food etc periodically which obviously can't be done at warp. And, as Chakotay's hologram once commented, Janeway has a tendency to "investigate every insignificant anomaly [they] come across", further delaying the journey home and reducing their average travelling speeds.

Ashes to Ashes - S6-E18

Plot hole: While Ensign Ballard is trying to dazzle Torres, she switches between English and Kobali. Torres gives her a look and when questioned, she tells her, "You were speaking Kobali." Others in Engineering are also directing strange looks toward Ensign Ballard. The problem is that the Universal Translator should be taking care of this, causing the others to only hear what is being said in their preferred language.

Suggested correction: Given only a few words of the language had been spoken, the computer/translator would have not yet learnt the language. There have also been many times the universal translator is unable to translate some languages.
