186 mistakes

Time Squad - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: During Blake's first encounter with Cally, the smudges on the front of his tunic (including a big chalky footprint left by her boot) disappear, reappear and rearrange themselves several times between shots.

Cygnus Alpha - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When Vargas beams up to the Liberator just ahead of Blake, Gan & Vila, he challenges them when they arrive from the other side of the room - by stepping out of the teleport bay. But they're standing in the teleport bay, and Liberator has only one. So exactly where is Vargas standing?

The Web - S1-E5

Revealing mistake: The double-bladed axe one of the Decimas uses to attack the station windows is wobbling as he strikes with it. Small wonder he's not getting far at breaking in, with a weapon made of rubber.

Space Fall - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: Just after Avon slips into the access tunnel and the prisoners close the hatch behind him, the star field in the window shakes and wobbles.

Cygnus Alpha - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: At the end, Blake teleports Vargas, who's wearing a long purple robe, out into space. But the figure we see materializing in space isn't in a robe. It appears to be wearing a spacesuit instead.

The Way Back - S1-E1

Revealing mistake: When Tel Varon walks in front of the wall screen in the justice data center, a flash of gibberish lettering and a blue matte line both appear briefly above his head.

Cygnus Alpha - S1-E3

Revealing mistake: Stock footage of the London's launch from Earth is run in reverse when it lands, supposedly 8 months later, on Cygnus Alpha. What are the odds that a remote penal planet will have a launching pad with configurations, lights, buildings and background terrain all completely identical to the launch stage on Earth?

Time Squad - S1-E4

Revealing mistake: Jenna moves down the corridor on her way to the hold with her Liberator gun in hand. The weapon lights up and flashes several times, even though she isn't firing it.

Space Fall - S1-E2

Visible crew/equipment: That main console! The uppermost of the flight consoles of Liberator isn't fixed down in this episode, and wobbles almost every time it is touched, and not just small wobbles. Watch for the 10 seconds or so after Jenna says "Eventually I might just be able to get her to start and stop", and you'll wonder how she didn't knock the entire prop off whatever it's sitting on and onto the floor.

Seek-Locate-Destroy - S1-E6

Plot hole: When the Liberator returns to the planet, Travis remarks that their orbit is too far away to use their matter transmitter. Since Travis had only found out that they even HAD a matter transmitter (which the Federation hasn't managed to develop yet) when he spoke to a technician just before that, how would he know what the range was?

Space Fall - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: The boom shadow is visible moving swiftly across the actors' heads when Avon says, "You've got an army of five, Blake."

Seek-Locate-Destroy - S1-E6

Revealing mistake: When the Federation troopers blow open the interrogation room door, you can see a brief glimpse, through the smoke, of the thrown sledge hammer that was used to make the door fall in.

Space Fall - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: Though no one touches him, the London crewman lying dead in the transfer tube changes positions between the time Blake and co. first board Liberator, and the time Raiker enters the tube and shoots at Blake.

Weapon - S2-E3

Plot hole: How very perspicacious of the clone masters to create their duplicate Blakes wearing the exact same outfit that the real Blake happens to have on in this episode, considering they have never seen Blake in person.

Space Fall - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: Whenever the prison ship fires its engines, the smoke trails travel to the top of the screen, as smoke does in an atmosphere. In space however, it should billow away from the engines in a more or less straight line.

The Way Back - S1-E1

Revealing mistake: When the prison ship launches, the cloud of smoke reveals the black wires that are lifting it up.

Cygnus Alpha - S1-E3

Revealing mistake: The high priest Vargas is wearing a nice new pair of decidedly 20th century basketball shoes under his robe. We even get a good close-up of them at one point.

Space Fall - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: Aboard the London, as Raiker opens the rec-room door, a boom mike shadow moves across Avon's face.

Space Fall - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: At the end of "The Way Back," Blake, strapped in his prison ship seat, looks over his shoulder at the window behind him as the ship leaves Earth. This same scene is recapped at the beginning of "Spacefall," only now Blake is sitting one seat to the left of the window instead of directly in front of it.

Jean G

Time Squad - S1-E4

Visible crew/equipment: An electrical set cable, poorly concealed between the seat cushions, tangles around Jenna's foot as she's getting up from the teleport console, and causes her to trip.
