Star Trek: Deep Space Nine

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.

A Simple Investigation - S5-E17

Revealing mistake: When Odo and Arissa are talking in Odo's quarters, you can see where the star field ends and where the sound stage floor begins.

Ferengi Love Songs - S5-E20

Visible crew/equipment: Just after Leeta and Rom makeup and decide to proceed with their wedding plans, the camera pans up to the Chief and Julian. You can briefly see green tape on the floor indicating where the Chief is supposed to stand.

Doctor Bashir, I Presume? - S5-E16

Factual error: When Captain Sisko introduced the head of JAG to Bashir's parents, he pronounced "Rear Admiral Bennett" but Bennett was wearing the rank of Admiral (2 X 4 pips enclosed) instead of Rear Admiral (2 X 2 pips enclosed).

Doctor Bashir, I Presume? - S5-E16

Character mistake: In the scene in Sisko's office where he has contacted Rear Admiral Bennett, Bennett says "Two hundred years ago, we tried to improve the species through DNA resequencing, and what did we get for our trouble? The Eugenics Wars." This puts the wars in the 22nd century, and differs from every other mention of them, where they occurred in the late 20th century, not the 22nd century as Bennett implies. (00:39:30 - 00:40:00)

The Ship - S5-E2

Other mistake: Dax says that T'Lor (the blue-shirted alien) had the away team's only medkit, but when he was shot and killed, T'Lor only had a phaser rifle on him.

Suggested correction: Just as T'Lor is shot and falls off the runabout you can see the med kit hanging from his right shoulder on a strap.

The Ship - S5-E2

Character mistake: At the end, Sisko blames the deaths of the runabout crew (Hoya, Rooney and Bertram) on himself and the Vorta not trusting each other. However, the runabout was destroyed before any negotiations had taken place, and even before any Jem'Hadar or Vorta had landed on the planet, so their deaths were largely unavoidable. Even the later deaths of T'Lor and Muniz were caused by the first firefight, again, before any negotiations had happened.

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

Other mistake: The doors of the old Enterprise in this episode open and close much slower than the original series, thereby causing the original sound effect to have to be extended.

Movie Nut

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.
