Star Trek: Deep Space Nine

Statistical Probabilities - S6-E9

Corrected entry: Patrick, the elderly and child-like one of the visiting genetically engineered trio, appears in the background with his reading glasses for ~3 seconds. Mature actors in the 20th century need glasses. Mature genetically enhanced people of the future never wear glasses except that one scene. (00:07:30)

Correction: While that may be generally true, we get an example of that not being the case with Kirk in Star Trek II. (Granted, that's 80 years earlier, but the principle holds up.) McCoy tells Kirk that he would normally administer Retinax V for his presbyopia, but Kirk responds that he's allergic to Retinax, hence McCoy's gift of the reading glasses. It would make sense that whatever treatment is used in the time of DS9, it's very possible that there would be people for whom that is not an option, either due to choice or unique medical concerns.

Sacrifice of Angels - S6-E6

Corrected entry: During the fleet battle Sisko says, "Evasive maneuvers, Pattern Omega. We're going through." After he says this, there is a flash of light on the bridge. During the flash, if you look closely, there is a ship diagram in the background behind Sisko on the left side of the screen. This is a diagram of an Excelsior-class ship, and the Defiant is NOT an Excelsior-class starship.

Correction: This could have been a display of one of the many other ships of the fleet.

Wrongs Darker than Death or Night - S6-E17

Corrected entry: When Dax and Kira are at the bar, Morn, who died in episode 12, is seen in the background drinking at the bar. (00:02:00 - 00:06:00)

Correction: As Morn never died, this isn't a mistake. The episode "Who Mourns for Morn" was about Morn faking his death to escape his old criminal partners, and it is revealed that he is alive and well (and very rich) at the end of the episode. Morn remains alive and well until the end of Season 7.
