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.

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.

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.

Take the Celestra - S1-E23

Revealing mistake: When Apollo changes course, he pulls back on the joystick and the interior shot shows the shuttle seems to raise its nose. But the stars outside the window also tilt, meaning the shuttle hasn't tilted - the camera has.

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.
