Dramatis Personae - S1-E18

Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode, Odo has sent everyone affected by the telepathic matrix to a cargo bay. Sisko and O'Brien remove their com badges, throwing them aside before heading to the bay. After everyone is cured, Sisko straightens back up and, in the closeup, you can see that he has a badge on. In the next closeup, it's gone again.

Strange Bedfellows (3) - S7-E19

Continuity mistake: When Dukat pours wine (in close-up) for himself and Adami, the glasses each contain very different amounts of wine as he puts the bottle down. But in the wider shot, he hands Adami her glass while holding his own, and both appear to have the same amount of wine.

A Simple Investigation - S5-E17

Continuity mistake: When Arissa is first interviewed in Odo's office, she displays a 'data port' that is embedded below and behind her left ear in her upper neck. Her hair is styled to make it visible, and the port seems to be there for the entire scene, tho almost completely obscured at times. The second time she's in Odo's office, her hair style is the same, making it very obvious the port has now vanished, and it's gone the entire scene. For the third visit to Odo's office, the port appears and disappears at random. Apparently this scene was comprised of shots from the two separate shoots that made up the first two office scenes.

Image in the Sand - S7-E1

Continuity mistake: Just before Ezri's first appearance (at Sisko's on Earth), notice the strap for the bag slung across Benjamin's father's shoulder. First it is twisted on his shoulder, then flat, then twisted, then flat again.

'Til Death Do Us Part (2) - S7-E18

Continuity mistake: When the Breen fling Dax into the cell after interrogating her, she (the stunt woman) lands front-down, facing her left side, with her left knee raised. (To clarify her body position, if she were vertical, it would appear her left foot was resting on the seat of a chair) The camera angle changes instantly so that we see Worf rush to her side as he kneels on one knee. But that knee is on the ground exactly where Dax's knee should still be. But it isn't, because both her legs are suddenly straight.

It's Only a Paper Moon - S7-E10

Continuity mistake: When every senior staff officer is in the conference room, watch Dax's rank pips. They change places from a shot to another, going (mentioning from left to right on her collar) from black-gold to gold-black and coming back to black-gold.

Homefront (1) - S4-E11

Continuity mistake: It's surprising that Joseph Sisko is still alive at this point in the series. In previous episodes, Ben seemed to imply his father was deceased. In "Emissary" and "Paradise", he said his father WAS a gourmet chef (which is still his current occupation in this episode). And in a conversation with Odo in "The Alternate", Ben told him of how his father had a severe illness that made him very weak and he was unable to help him in the end.

Field of Fire - S7-E13

Continuity mistake: As the episode begins, Ilario was referred to as an Ensign by Bashir and Dax. When he was found murdered the next morning, Odo referred to him as Lieutenant Ilario.

Dramatis Personae - S1-E18

Continuity mistake: When Kira is explaining to Jadzia in Quark's that she wants to get rid of Sisko, she is wearing her Bajoran earring in her right ear. When she picks Quark up by his collar a couple of shots later, the earring is gone.

Rules of Engagement - S4-E18

Continuity mistake: During Worf's questioning, Worf switched from being a Lt. Commander (2.5) pips and a commander (3) pips several times.

Rules of Engagement - S4-E18

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Dax is being questioned by the Klingon lawyer, Captain Sisko is shown having only 3 pips, or the rank of commander.

What You Leave Behind (2) - S7-E26

Continuity mistake: After Dukat kills Adami, he clutches a large book to his chest with his right arm. Sisko charges at Dukat, who, still clutching the book, turns to face Sisko. When the camera angle changes to show Dukat from behind, he is holding no book - and he wraps his right arm around Sisko as they fall off the cliff. The following overhead shot shows that Dukat still clutches the book (not Sisko) as the two fall into the fire. (The Region 1 'Season 7' DVD set includes this two-parter as a single, longer episode and my timecode is based on this fact).

Penumbra (1) - S7-E17

Continuity mistake: Throughout this episode you will notice that Ezri Dax's pips change. One moment she has two full pips on her collar and at other times, only one is filled in while the other remains black.

By Inferno's Light - S5-E15

Continuity mistake: When Bashir goes to let Garak out of the crawlspace, he pulls the prying tool from under the end of the bunk mattress closest to him. But in the scene before a Romulan prisoner had put it under the opposite end of the mattress.

Trials and Tribble-ations - S5-E6

Continuity mistake: On the old Enterprise bridge, Sisko is shown at a bridge station, and the person next to him, close to Dax's position, is wearing a gold shirt. When Kirk comes onto the bridge, the person next to Dax now has a red shirt, which was the original crewman's shirt in TOS.

Mistakes

Earlier in the season, it was established that the Jem'Hadar are genetically engineered to be loyal to the Changelings, meaning they will not deliberately harm them. With that in mind, the Changelings still care about Odo's well being despite his refusal to return to them. So why didn't the Lovok Changeling send a message to the Jem'Hadar ships to inform them that a Changeling was going to be on the runabout? Given that he took time to offer another chance to return to his people, you would think he'd take time to make sure he returned to the station safely.

Trivia

Buck Bokai, a baseball player from the 21st Century, who becomes "real" in this episode, broke Joe DiMaggio's consecutive hitting streak in 2026. While he's not physically seen or referred to by name, this fact is mentioned in the 'Star Trek: The Next Generation' episode "The Big Goodbye."
