Star Trek: Enterprise

The Breach - S2-E21

Other mistake: As Archer walks into the sickbay, while the camera pans, you can see a bottle of Crystal Geyser water. I noticed the bottle right away but had to pause it to see the brand. (00:39:00 - 00:40:00)

Minefield - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: When Reed instructs Archer how to disarm the second arming mechanism of the mine, he tells him to turn the first component clockwise, but then Archer is shown turning it counter-clockwise. Then Reed tells him to turn the rest of the components counter-clockwise, but afterwards he must reverse the last component to keep the mine from rearming, which means turning it clockwise. But when Archer reverses the last component, he turns it counter-clockwise.

Carbon Creek - S2-E2

Factual error: Part of this episode takes place in the 50s, during a previously-unknown incident of Vulcans crash landing on earth. Modern twenty and fifty dollar bills are visible in the tip jar.

Regeneration - S2-E23

Other mistake: Two Borg are discovered North of the Arctic Circle. One is covered in ice, the other encased in ice. Carbon dating shows the wreckage to be over 100 years old (to tie it in with Star Trek:First Contact). The Borg are inactive and unable to repair themselves until they are "defrosted". The temperature above the Arctic Circle doesn't usually drop below -100°F. The Borg have been shown to work very well in the vacuum of space which is 3-4K (roughly -454°F). If they can survive that, even being frozen in a solid block of ice would not slow them down. The nanites have to be in their "blood" and operate at the cellular level. That cannot be damaged by re-entry and the crash. [This is one of those entries that keeps being corrected and recorrected - I'll leave it up to people to make up their own minds.]

Horizon - S2-E20

Factual error: When Capt. Archer joins Travis in a weightless environment he refers to in an earlier episode as the ship's "sweet spot", Travis discusses the bad news he received from The Horizon, his parents' cargo ship, with Capt. Archer, and you see tears rolling down (and off) Travis's face. In a weightless environment the tears would not react in this way. (00:06:20 - 00:07:40)

Carbon Creek - S2-E2

Factual error: The story takes place in 1957 (Sputnik is already in orbit). At the end, T'Mir sells her invention, which ends up being Velcro (technically hook and loop fastener). However, George de Mestral obtained the patent for Velcro in 1955, and by 1957 he had already expanded into the United States.

Vanishing Point - S2-E10

Continuity mistake: When Captain Archer is talking to Hoshi in her quarters, at one point he leans against the door-frame. In the next shot of him from that angle, he's no longer leaning, even though we saw him from behind and he didn't move. In the next shot, he's back to leaning against the door-frame.

Future Tense - S2-E16

Revealing mistake: When examining the burnt human in sick bay, the body moves his eyelids towards the end of the camera zoom in during the reveal that the human had a Vulcan ancestor. (00:14:30)

The Catwalk - S2-E12

Other mistake: The Doctor states that sick bay is the most heavily shielded area of the ship but later in the episode he is trying to move all of his specimens to The Catwalk. If the sick bay is the most heavily shielded area then he would not need to move the specimens.

Future Tense - S2-E16

Other mistake: Just as Malcolm finishes opening the hatch on the alien pod, a graphical mistake appears towards the left side of T'pol's arm. It appears as if a section of the craft had been added with an overlay, which abruptly disappears as the cutting tool stops firing. (00:01:30)

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: It doesn't disappear. It just falls into shadow when the cutting beam is turned off.

Dead Stop - S2-E4

Audio problem: At the very end of the scene where Trip persuades Malcolm to help him look for the station's computer, he hands Malcolm the PADD. Malcolm taps twice on the PADD as if he's working on something but there's no accompanying sound effect.

Captain Archer: We should be entering the nebula.
Subcommander T'Pol: The readings could be misleading.
Captain Archer: As Dr. Phlox would say - optimism.
Subcommander T'Pol: Optimism doesn't alter the laws of physics.

Horizon - S2-E20

Trivia: When Travis is in his old room talking with Nora about Enterprise, look on the bookshelf behind Travis. There's a large white book about Chicago gangs of the 1920's. In the original series episode "A Piece of the Action" it is determined that 100 years ago the ship Horizon accidentally left a book about Chicago gangs which influenced the entire culture to mimic the mobster lifestyle.

Question: Does anyone know how old Zefram Cochrane is or when he was born? He seemed pretty old in Star Trek: First Contact which takes place in 2063, and "Broken Bow" shows him still alive about 60 years later dedicating the Warp 5 complex with Captain Archer's father Henry.

Answer: Acording to the Star Trek Encyclopedia Cochrane was born in 2030. His warp flight was in 2063, and he himself disappeared from Alpha Centauri in the year 2117 at 87. Kirk met him on a planetoid in the Gsmms Canaris region in the year 2267 making him 237. The first episode of Enterprise is in 2151, so Cochrane was missing for 34 years by that time and would have been 121 at that time.
