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.

The Passenger - S1-E9

Revealing mistake: In episode 'The Passenger', when the Koblian officer opens Vantika's eyes to run a retinal scan, his pupils dilate, despite the fact that he is dead.

The Passenger - S1-E9

Deliberate mistake: The dying Vantika hides his consciousness away in a portion of Dr. Bashir's mind. At one point, "Bashir" (heavily cloaked in clothing and shadows) comes up behind Quark and makes sure his demands are clear. At this point, it should still be unclear just how Vantika is still "alive", and whose body he is using. However, when he shoves Quark away, for a fraction of a second, Bashir's face can be seen under his hood. They were true to plot in using the right actor (though he shouldn't have been seen), it is possible some might have spied the secret earlier than the show meant to reveal it.

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.

Q-Less - S1-E7

The Forsaken - S1-E17

Character mistake: In the scene where Lwaxana Troi follows Odo into the Turbo lift and it breaks down, Odo reports to Ops that they are in Turbo lift 7. Later scenes in Ops refer to their location as Turbo lift 4.

Emissary (1) - S1-E1

Other mistake: When Sisko was initially meeting and speaking with Kira, she described the station by calling it a, "Godforsaken place." From her perspective, she should have said, "Prophet-forsaken place." Also, later in the episode, Quark refers to the Bajorans as, "Godfearing people." Once again, should have been, "Prophet-fearing people."

Suggested correction: Remember that we are hearing Bajoran and Ferenginese translated into English. An exact translation isn't always proper.
