Star Trek: Voyager

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.

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.

Suggested correction: Maybe dematerializing and rematerializing would waste too much energy.

Future's End (2) - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: After Starling is beamed out of the limo, Rayne opens the door and escapes. The door is still standing open when the chauffeur starts the car. But in the reverse angle as he drives away, the door has closed itself. (00:20:10)

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.

Basics (2) - S3-E1

Plot hole: Paris asks the Doctor to disable the phaser banks. How can the Doctor, who can't exit from sick bay, disable banks in engineering? And if it is possible to disable them from sick bay, why did Suder go to engineering?

Future's End (2) - S3-E9

Revealing mistake: When Paris and Rayne are driving through the Los Angeles suburbs in her van, they never change their direction of travel, but they pass the same sequence of houses twice. (00:31:05)

Macrocosm - S3-E12

Other mistake: When Neelix and the Captain are following the unknown creature, it turns down a hallway and Neelix says it just ran into a dead end. The two follow and enter the transporter room on their right. However, when they exit the room, they turn to their right again, which should lead to a dead end. They needed to go to their left to go back to where they came from.

Future's End (2) - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: The sun's location changes when Rain and Tom are in the stalled van. After Tom shoots the truck and Rain stops the van, you see the shadow is directly under the van. When the truck is heading towards them, we see the van's long shadow across the highway, to the right of the van.

Favorite Son - S3-E20

Continuity mistake: Tuvok announces to the bridge he has detected a "polaron grid" surrounding the planet Voyager is orbiting. Minutes later, Chakotay tells the Captain that they have found some small holes in the "tachyon grid". (00:25:50 - 00:29:30)

Worst Case Scenario - S3-E24

Continuity mistake: Through the series, it is stated several times that Voyager has three transporter rooms, like in Phage (season 1 episode 5). However, in this episode, Voyager suddenly only has two transporter rooms.

Macrocosm - S3-E12

Continuity mistake: When Janeway and Neelix chase after the mysterious figure moving away from the down the dead end corridor, the wall is lit up, and the shadow moves across it showing direction of travel. After a quick cut, the wall they approach, and the corridor is noticeably darkened.

Movie Nut

Basics (2) - S3-E1

Deliberate mistake: After Voyager's secondary phaser banks overload, everyone on the ship seems to be severely injured, but Seska's baby is perfectly fine. This is likely to be a conscious decision by the writers. (00:40:30)

11:59 - S5-E23

Shannon O'Donnel: 5:00am, December 27th, 2000. I'm in the great state of...Indiana, I think. I saw the world's largest ball of string this morning and the world's largest beefsteak tomato this afternoon. It was the size of a Volkswagen. The string, not the tomato.

Question: Is there any technology featured in Star Trek Voyager, or other Star Trek series for that part, that seemed futuristic in the late 20th century, but are now reality?

Answer: If you include the original Star Trek series (1966) then there are several. The communicators used in the original series were before (and said to inspire) mobile phones. We currently do have teleportation technology but it currently only works on things the size of a few molecules. A "Cloaking device" also exists; it's a fabric that bends light through it, though it currently only works in infra-red. The Hypospray is real and was patented in 1960 - six years before the original series aired - it's actually called the Jet Injector. Faster Than Light travel is still a few decades off, but there are several real-world theories that look promising, including one that is remarkably similar to the method used in the Star Trek Universe called the Alcubeierre Drive that involves manipulating spacetime ahead and behind the ship and the ship "riding" it. Medical techniques and technologies have also advanced considerably; prosthetics particularity and we routinely have robots performing surgeries where absolute precision is needed. The "Shield" used in the series have a few primitive versions around. The Phasers used in the series are used but are not very powerful (nor will they ever be as powerful as the Star Trek version the laws of physics gets in the way) but rail-guns (using magnets to spin then propel a projectile) and particle accelerators like the Large Hadron Collider have been around for a while. The Replicator would require a nuclear fusion reactor and a nuclear fission reactor in something the size of a large oven and the Holo-deck wouldn't work at all based on our current understanding of physics so those are both still science fiction at the moment, but who knows!
