Warlord - S4-E12

Revealing mistake: A shot of Scorpio en route to Betafarl falls victim to a special effects problem. The camera shooting the model was apparently bumped and shaken, so the ship is suddenly wobbling so badly it's a wonder it can keep a straight course. (00:22:20)

Warlord - S4-E12

Revealing mistake: A bad effects matte causes one of the two ships approaching Xenon to partially dissolve along the way. (00:03:55)

Warlord - S4-E12

Plot hole: Ordered to kill him, the Federation squadron stakes Avon down - on a sand dune. Naturally, he has no trouble pulling loose and clobbering them all. This is hardly just a "character choice": it's a plot hole the size of Tuskeegee. A trained military unit (which they were) would never be so stupid. They could simply have shot him with no difficulty whatsoever. (00:33:30)

Warlord - S4-E12

Plot hole: When the warlords lift their glasses in a toast, the same mysterious blue electrical arcs, which later appear and kill everyone in the freight bay, spark and sizzle around their hands. But for some strange reason, no one seems to find this at all peculiar. (00:11:15)
