V: The Final Battle: Part 1 (2 Hrs) - S1-E3

Corrected entry: There have been some occasions - particularly the L.A. Medical Center - where the Resistance fighters could have picked up Visitor weapons. So why is Donovan the only one (until near the end) to use a Visitor blaster regularly?

Correction: There must be a good reason considering how easy it would be to pick up at least one or two of them in each battle. Perhaps Donovan knows they are very difficult to recharge with Earth power sources (He uses a pistol instead of his laser in a few scenes after he has it). Perhaps they are coded like the lasers in Lost in Space? (This would also make sense since he didn't capture his, he got it from Barbara who would have it "unlocked" while on duty.)

V: The Final Battle: Part 1 (2 Hrs) - S1-E3

Corrected entry: The Visitors (both the golden-helmeted Guardsmen and the Troopers) wear bullet-resistant flexible armor which proves effective even against .223 Remington rifle rounds at close range. But in the hospital scene, the Guardsmen are blasted with machine pistols and shotgun buckshot, and do not stand up again. Pistol rounds and buckshot pellets have lesser velocity and killing power than rifle rounds, so how can they affect the Guards' armor? Ham Tyler and his armor-piercing ammo appear in the story AFTER the hospital raid.

Correction: Considering the spread of a shotgun, its entirely plausible that the troopers took a shotgun pellet in the spot between helmet and collar where they are not armored. It could also be that sheer blunt trauma from the MAC-10 .45 rounds stunned them or rendered them unconscious.

Correction: This is not a mistake, as the resistance fighters have by now been provided with the teflon-coated rounds which are able to penetrate the Visitor armour.
