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)

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

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 Adama picks up the picture among the ruins, and says "I'm sorry, Lia", his grip on the picture differs from shot to shot. (00:33:45)

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

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)

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

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)

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

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)

Greetings from Earth (2) - S1-E20

Continuity mistake: The Commandant of the Alliance destroyer is told the homing beacon on Paradeen is no longer transmitting. Yet in the next scene on Paradeen, Michael asks Vector if the beacon has been destroyed, as ordered, and Vector replies that he forgot to do it.

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)

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

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)

The Lost Warrior - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: When Marcos places his bet, he has a gold mug to his right on the table. When the shot reverses to show Lacerta, the mug has vanished. The mistake alternates, repeating itself throughout the entire scene. (00:23:20)

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

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)

The Living Legend (1) - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: After Cain leaves the planning session for the attack on the Cylon convoy, Apollo walks toward Adama. In the background is a metal wall unit. At the far right side, halfway down are four small compartments with handles that are all properly folded flush. When the shot cuts to a close-up of Tigh, the second compartment's handle is not stowed. (00:24:55)

Fire in Space - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: When a Cylon ship prepares to ram the Galactica's bridge, a Cylon aboard states "1 micron" (a measure of time) until impact, and it takes 14 real seconds to do so. But when another heads for Galactica's landing bay, a Cylon aboard says "5 microns" until impact, and takes only 9 real seconds to do so. (00:07:00 - 00:07:45)

War of the Gods (1) - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: The show uses made-up terms similar to metric system terminology when remarking about measures of distance and time. Roughly speaking, microns tend to refer to seconds, while centons refer to hours. But here, when Count Iblis enters the communications area and the video screens malfunction, Athena comments that everything was fine "a few centons ago", suggesting hours, when it was only seconds ago that the trouble started. (00:18:50)

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

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)

The Lost Warrior - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: When Bootes throws a tantrum at the bar, he knocks two hats off the bar and his mug falls over directly in front of him. When the shot changes to an angle from behind him, his mug is standing and one of the hats is back on the bar. (00:36:30)

The Lost Planet of the Gods (1) - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: When Boxey plays with Muffit, a red chair on the right sits away from the wall and turned slightly. Boxey and Muffit leave the room as Serina and Apollo argue, and when Apollo walks toward the chair, it is not turned as much and is much closer to the wall. (00:24:20 - 00:25:55)

The Lost Warrior - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: When Tigh enters Adama's quarters, the photo frame holding Apollo and Athena's pictures is sitting on the desk. Next shot, Adama has it in his hands. Cut again, it's back on the desk. (00:28:35)
