Battlestar Galactica mistake picture

Saga of a Star World (1) - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Baltar turns to face the two setting suns, we see the lower one at the left has what could be a boat in its reflection on the water. The higher one on the right is over a mountainous area on the horizon. The next shot is of Baltar in close-up, then the next returns to the horizon to show us Baltar's view, which shows just ONE setting sun. The one on the left has vanished though there is room enough for it to have been seen in this shot. (00:40:15)

Continuity mistake: When the Warriors are playing cards, Starbuck places his cards on the table near the gold coins, saying "A perfect pyramid. Unless there's a better hand, the pot is mine". His right fingers tap on the table and his cigar is in the ashtray. When the shot cuts, his hand is suddenly up by his mouth, holding the cigar, and the cards and coins have vanished. (00:14:45)

Continuity mistake: When Athena is about to undress, Starbuck surprises her and she conceals herself behind a locker door. The strap around her shoulder changes position between shots. (00:40:35)

Continuity mistake: When the Galactica goes to battle stations, Starbuck's card game is broken up. He rises out of his chair in a close-up to try to keep the other players from taking back their money and leaving. In the next wide shot, he's still seated and rises again. (00:15:25)

Continuity mistake: After the big battle, Apollo announces that the Cylons are "on the run". Adama orders all the Vipers back on board Galactica, and when they've landed, he is informed that two are missing. Apollo and Starbuck have headed off to find the Cylon base ship on which a Cylon reports to the Imperious Leader that an attack is imminent. When the leader suggests that their Cylon Raiders can defend them, the Cylon replies that the Raiders are still engaging Galactica- but this hasn't been true for sometime- that battle is over. (02:09:40 - 02:11:05)

Continuity mistake: At the end of the big battle, at least four Cylon Raiders are seen fleeing the battle area. Then, using phony radio chatter, Starbuck and Apollo fake that their two ships are actually four full squadrons, ready to attack the base star. Starbuck tries to fake that two more squadrons can join them, but Apollo states that they aren't needed. But the Cylon reporting to his leader states that SIX squadrons are approaching (not just the four) and that all their Raiders were destroyed in the battle. A Cylon does not exaggerate, nor can he be mistaken or lie- yet he IS wrong in this scene. (02:09:40 - 02:12:15)

Continuity mistake: As they reach Carillon, we see Adama and Tigh shaking hands while standing right next to each other. When the shot cuts, Tigh is standing behind Adama. (01:13:40)

Continuity mistake: As the two Centurian Cylons report to their leader that all the base ships have been destroyed, we see the leader sitting on a chair on top of a column. As the leader's chair turns around, you can see its shadow being cast right beside the Centurions. When the shot cuts, the shadow is gone. (00:23:15)

Continuity mistake: When Baltar is brought before the Imperious Leader, the wider overhead shots show his arms are straight down along his sides, but closer shots show his hands fiddling together in front of him or somewhere between that and almost back at his sides. (01:17:45)

Continuity mistake: When Apollo asks Zac, "How many of them can you make out?", Zac looks at his targeting screen and replies, "Four." However, the screen displays five. The ensuing battle proves Zach is correct with four, meaning the film makers inserted an incorrect targeting screen graphic. (00:10:30)

Continuity mistake: When the Vipers come to Galactica's rescue, an interior shot shows a pilot hitting the 'Turbo' button. The next exterior shot shows two Vipers pulling upward as we hear the familiar sound of the Turbos- but no white exhaust is emitted by these two Vipers as normally seen when Turbo is used. Seconds later in the same shot, the sound is heard again as two more Vipers turn right, but they do display the white exhaust effect. (02:07:40)

Continuity mistake: As the Vipers join in the defense of the Galactica, an exterior shot zooms in on the side of Galactica, showing that her name is missing from the front side of her port landing bay. (02:07:55)

Continuity mistake: In the second shot showing the fleet of Battlestars (from the port side and slightly behind), the closest ship has a blank nameplate on the front of the landing bay where all the ships normally have their names displayed. In the next shot, a close-up shows this plate now says, "Atlantia". (00:02:45)

Continuity mistake: While driving the Land Ram, looking for a Tylium deposit, and Apollo says "We can't stay in one place for too long", Boxey's arm goes from leaning on Apollo's shoulder to not leaning on his shoulder between the shots. (01:20:10)

The pilot crests (worn by Richard Hatch and Dirk Benedict, among others) on their collars were actually U.S. Army Military Intelligence Class A uniform crests.
