The Living Legend (2) - S1-E13

Revealing mistake: When the "drop team" shuttle passes over the Cylon city of Gamoray, the city lights below are a reuse of the graphic in Episode One that represented the human city of Caprica City. (00:14:00)

Continuity mistake: After the Colonial assault force parachutes into the Cylon city and Boomer says, "Shouldn't take too much to blow 'em sky high," they race off to the left - and Apollo's sky diving helmet disappears from one shot to the next as they run.

The Living Legend (2) - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: When Baltar sees the Pegasus, it is approaching with her bow toward Baltar's port side. The next exterior shot shows Baltar's ship heading with its bow toward Pegasus' starboard side, as if Baltar's ship reversed, letting Pegasus pass in front, then went forward again and veered sharply right to avoid collision. (00:04:10)

Revealing mistake: When Pegasus evacuates her wounded on shuttles, one shot has a shuttle entering the picture from the right, heading away from camera. It is a Galactica shuttle, and the image is reversed (the "GAL 356" marking is backwards). (00:42:30)

Revealing mistake: As the gold Centurion Cylon approaches the camera, some very obvious human fingerprints litter the frame around his "mouthpiece"- as if left by a crew member that helped the actor put it on. (00:15:45)

The Living Legend (2) - S1-E13

Revealing mistake: As Pegasus approaches the two forward base stars, she is shown from the rear of her port side, moving away from camera. The shot is a reversed image of Galactica (her name is backwards on the landing bay). After the vipers clear a path for her, the same shot is flipped again, so that Galactica reads properly, despite the shot purportedly being of Pegasus. (00:43:55 - 00:45:05)

The Living Legend (2) - S1-E13

Revealing mistake: The shots of the exploding containers in the very modern looking Gamoray are a reuse of shots from the episode "The Young Lords", evidenced by the obvious castle in the background. (00:17:50)

The Living Legend (2) - S1-E13

Plot hole: The "drop team" parachutes into Gamoray under cover of night, wearing all black to conceal their approach, yet their parachutes have an enormous rainbow stripe pattern. Not exactly stealthy. (00:15:15)

The Living Legend (2) - S1-E13

Deliberate mistake: When Starbuck and Apollo attack the 'flank missile launchers' of the two Cylon base stars, the shots of the launchers exploding are actually of the laser cannons on the Galactica (note the red horizontal striping on the "wall" behind each cannon). (00:44:30)

The Living Legend (2) - S1-E13

Revealing mistake: When Pegasus goes after Baltar's base star, Pegasus takes damage to her starboard landing bay. The shot is reversed and a reuse of the same shot from the previous episode when Galactica took identical damage to her port bay. (00:32:30)
