Babylon 5

No Compromises - S5-E1

Continuity mistake: At the security meeting, just as Captain Lochley is saying "I agree with Sheridan", she is shown in a long shot uncrossing her arms and starting to move forward. The camera goes to a close-up of her, and she once again is shown uncrossing her arms and starting to walk forward.

The Corps is Mother, the Corps is Father - S5-E13

Factual error: Bester lifts the blanket covering the bloody corpse of Harris' roommate. The man hasn't been dead long enough for the blood to dry, so there should be blood-transfer on the underside of the blanket - but there's not a spot on it.

Strange Relations - S5-E6

Continuity mistake: The ship that's supposed to transport Londo Mollari home changes ship class. Before the explosion, it's a Primus class battle cruiser. The wreckage shown afterwards is of a Vorchan class medium warship.

In the Kingdom of the Blind - S5-E9

Continuity mistake: On Centauri Prime, Londo has an audience with the demented Regent. In the initial shot, the babbling Regent holds both hands up near his face as he speaks. In the very next, reverse-angle shot, his hands are down at his sides. When it cuts back, his hands are up again. (00:36:30)

Commander Jeffrey David Sinclair: Mr. Garibaldi was right. He said this was going to be trouble.
Susan Ivanova: There's nothing more annoying than Mr. Garibaldi when he's right.
