I Worship His Shadow - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Stanley is running down the hall and he and the Bug Bomb accidentally cross paths, he swats it out of the air. It hits the ground damaged with one leg breaking off and it lying on its side. A minute later when it boots back up and starts to get up, it's in a different position, with its other legs up in the air now and the broken one changing. Also the design of its head seems to change. (00:33:25 - 00:34:35)

Continuity mistake: When the Bug Bomb is crawling out of Thodin's nose, it's design and body shape is noticeably different than when seen in closes ups later while on electrical components searching for a signal, especially the head. Also going by scaling of the floor when Stanley swats it to the ground as well as when it's visible flying around Stanley's head, the size of it is bigger after it leaves Thodin's nose and would not have fit.

Continuity mistake: As the stadium is shown before Thodin's walker is lowered into it, there is a panning shot showcasing the place. Then moments later from another aerial view the stadium's design is very different. Extra lights appear around the center, the layers of spectator sections doubles, and the general design of the center area changes a lot. (00:31:20 - 00:32:40)

Continuity mistake: Thodin is brought and set down in Cobalt Stadium to have his public trial and execution, and is set down inside his bug-like walker. As it opens up, it reveals his arms are strapped to the insides and it opening forces him to spread his arms wide, with the walker opening very wide leaving him in a near sitting down T pose. He then looks around a moment at the Holo Prosecutor and the the camera cuts back to him. Suddenly the walker isn't opened nearly as wide, leaving his arms closer together. (00:31:50)

Continuity mistake: During the first prisoner's trial at the Holo Court, a 790 Unit is operating the memory search machine to use as evidence against the criminal. He is shown standing next to it several times to operate the buttons, activate the switch, and control the memory video feed back. However, in one shot from the side view of the prisoner, the 790 Unit has vanished from next to the machine, but is back again moments later to hit the switch sending the prisoner on his way to his death.

Continuity mistake: The first prisoner is moved up to the Holo Court and has his memories searched for incriminating evidence. Once they find the memory of him refusing to pay the temple, it shows the hand of the 790 Unit operating the machine pressing a button, and next to his hand is a switch that is in the down position. Once the Holo Judge passes sentence on the man, it cuts back to this spot again, but now the switch is in the up position with the 790 reaching out to flip it down, which causes the rail to switch over and put the prisoner on the track to get his organs cut out. (00:24:15 - 00:24:55)

Continuity mistake: As the line of prisoners is reaching the Holo Court, it shows a single 790 Unit pushing out some equipment towards them, and only him.

Continuity mistake: As the prisoners are being moved off the transport and are strapped to these large metal frames, the frames move along a railing in a fixed position to each other, and also have a chain linked between each one running along the railing. One of the prisoners recognizes Stanley and starts shouting when his frame breaks loose. The camera shows a close up of the bar connecting his frame to the railing as some parts break out of it before it falls, and the chain that is connecting them has vanished. (00:22:50)

Continuity mistake: As the prisoner line is moving, it shows Xev with a guy in front of her who's very skinny and wearing a black hat. When they reach the Holo Court the guy in front of her is suddenly a different guy, who's fatter and has no hat on. (00:22:35 - 00:23:15)

Continuity mistake: As the current host for His Shadow is dying, the Clerics are rushing him towards the temple structure for the Divine Predecessors and towards the foremost column to perform the transference operation. In the shot showing all the columns as they rush towards it, the bottom of the closest one is normal like the rest. When the camera cuts to a side angle as the Clerics reach the base, there are suddenly doors and curtains there with three other Clerics standing at the ready. (00:14:20)

Continuity mistake: There are four other nuts lying on the ground around the hole at the feet of the 790 Robot where Stanley had been trying to throw them into the hole. When talking with the prisoner transporter woman, he throws another nut at the hole and makes it in, and in the close up of the hole the nut that was the furthest to the right vanishes while the other three remain in the same spot. (00:11:40 - 00:13:00)

Continuity mistake: When Stanley is trying to bounce nuts and bolts off a 790 Unit's butt into a vent like hole in the ground, it shows the robot standing with its feet next to the hole and aligned with it nearly centered perfectly. When it cuts to a different angle from a distance, the robot is now standing a bit to the right. Also the hole appears to change. (00:11:40)

Visible crew/equipment: After the cannibal woman spits on the guard as he walks through the prison transport ship, he comes to a long haired guy. But as he comes onto screen you can see the end of the set piece for the ship with the walls of the shooting studio visible. Then when the camera cuts to another angle it shows the guard still has a lot of ship to walk through. (00:09:25)

Continuity mistake: Kai orders his squadron to bring up their stingers on their bug ships, and in a side angle shows them curling up like a scorpion stinger. It then cuts to a close up of one stinger opening and it suddenly changes shape a little. In the side angle it looking more like a shark head with a visible hump on the bottom side, to being almost a perfect round football like shape in the close up. Also the space gas around the ship changes from green to white between shots. (00:02:35)

Continuity mistake: When the 1255s draw their weapons on Xev and Stanley once they corned at a door, Xev grabs Stanley to use him as a human shield and in that shot the 1255s are not reflected in the glass of the door. It cuts back to the robots as they fire their plasma blasts and then back to Xev and Stanley moving out of the way and suddenly the 1255s are seen reflected in the glass of the door. (00:46:55)

Super Nova - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: When Stan, Xev and Kai are walking to the Memory Chamber, they seem to walk out of a two dimensional line at the lower left into the scene. The set and green screen weren't quite synched.
