Battlestar Galactica

The Hand of God - S1-E24

Factual error: Apollo's monitor picks up the "Tranquility Base here: the Eagle has landed" message of the first moon landing, complete with a full shot of the LEM sitting on the moon's surface - not from the onboard or outboard cameras, but from several yards away. There's absolutely nothing to indicate that this is some edited rebroadcast (that's one stretch of a rationalization). The implication is clearly that it's live. And when the Eagle first landed there were, of course, no cameras on the moon. (Nor is it necessary to insist that the series would have to be set in the Earth-time 1960s for this to be so. A live signal could take many, many years to reach the Galactica.)

The Hand of God - S1-E24

Factual error: The Cylon commander orders his centurions to "continue into the galaxy." This is roughly tantamount to the GPS in your car instructing you to "continue to the nearest planet." It makes no sense, as they're not entering any other galaxy (nor could they). Yet again, the writer obviously confused his terminologies, and should have written "system," not "galaxy." Speculating that he meant this galaxy is just silly; it's clearly not what was intended.

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.
