Take the Celestra - S1-E23

Continuity mistake: When the Celestra's joystick is hit by laser fire, it tips to the right and the ship lurches off course. An exterior shot shows the landing bay is pitch dark. When the ship is forced back on course, the next exterior shot shows the bay is very well lit. (00:44:10)

Take the Celestra - S1-E23

Continuity mistake: The exterior shots of Commander Kronus' shuttle show that all its side windows are transparent, like all Galactica shuttles. But the interior views show that its second starboard-side window is actually an opaque gray panel, not transparent as seen from outside. This is because the exterior shot is of a Galactica shuttle (no model was built to represent Kronus' shuttle). Also note the impossibly high interior ceiling at the very front, compared to the exterior shape. (00:29:40)

Take the Celestra - S1-E23

Continuity mistake: The shuttle belonging to Commander Kronus is described as being a non-military version, differently equipped than are the Galactica shuttles. But an exterior shot shows the shuttle to be 'GAL 356' yet again, which is the most-often-used Galactica shuttle. (00:28:15)

Take the Celestra - S1-E23

Continuity mistake: When Apollo changes course, he pulls the joystick back and the shuttle seems to 'pull up' in the inside shot, but the next exterior shot shows the ship is turning to starboard, not rising. (00:34:25)

Take the Celestra - S1-E23

Continuity mistake: When Apollo launches the shuttle from the Celestra, the close-up of the joystick shows he is in a Viper, not the shuttle. (00:27:30)

Take the Celestra - S1-E23

Continuity mistake: When Aurora and her companion are picking up the guns from the closet, you can see the closet contains two racks with several guns on them. At first they empty the upper rack of guns. When it cuts they empty the lower rack, but then the guns suddenly have reappeared in the upper rack. (00:13:30)

Take the Celestra - S1-E23

Continuity mistake: As the shuttle approaches the Celestra, Apollo is told he is crazy to try and land in the dark. The view forward shows the landing bay of Celestra is pitch black in darkness. Seconds later, another shot shows the landing bay is now bathed in blue light. Once landed and aboard, they exit the shuttle into the very-well-lit landing bay. But nobody has ever turned any lights on. (00:40:30)

Take the Celestra - S1-E23

Continuity mistake: When Starbuck and Apollo discuss going to see Aurora, the wide side shot shows Starbuck's hair hangs down to the corner of his right eye. But shots showing Starbuck from the front show his hair at least an inch above his eye. (00:12:50)

Mistakes

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.

Trivia

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.
