Star Trek: Picard

Remembrance - S1-E1

Character mistake: Picard and Data are playing poker at the beginning of the episode. Before the actual faces of the players are revealed, we are shown close-ups of their hands as they put down the chips for the bet. When Picard says his first line in the series it's "See", and it is literally true, because in the previous shot, Data put his 5 cards down on the table and face up. (00:00:50)

Absolute Candor - S1-E4

Character mistake: Dr. Agnes Jurati, one of the Federation leading scientists, is bored during the hyperspace travel, and so she chats a bit with the captain. While she gives her quirky speech, she casually mentions that "there are over 3 billion stars in our galaxy." She's not wrong, technically, but the number of stars in our galaxy is estimated between 100 and 400 billion. She is way off. (00:08:40)

Suggested correction: Two things. You state that she's not wrong, which she isn't. The fact that she chose an odd turn of phrase doesn't make it a mistake. Plus, you reference the number of 'galaxies' in our galaxy but I am guessing this is just a typo.

Oh duh, yes. It's absolutely a typo, I'll see that it's fixed. And well, 'not technically wrong' was just me being cheeky. You know that making a statement off by 100 times would be classified as a mistake in any situation.

Hide and Seek - S2-E9

Character mistake: Seven of Nine asks Tallinn to lay down suppression fire, so they "split up." She explains "We have twice as many chances to get to the ship if we divide and conquer." 'Divide and conquer' (Divide et impera, for the Romans) means to keep the opposition weak by favouring the conflict between their different factions. It is not used to describe splitting up your own forces to have better chances to make it out of a trap alive.

Remembrance - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Picard walks out of the archive building he's shocked to see Dahj, who is wearing boots with a chunky heel (also seen when she followed Laris to a bedroom for "a good night's sleep"). After their talk Dahj and Picard head to the roof, and while Dahj fights the Romulan assassins she is wearing flat soled boots, but in at least one shot as she kicks an assassin her chunky heeled boots reappear. (00:28:15 - 00:32:45)

Et in Arcadia Ego: Part 2 - S1-E10

Trivia: The ships that Riker arrives with are all identical, explained away with the line "I've got a fleet of them at my back." That line's delivered without seeing Riker's face, because it was recorded afterwards. The effects work was only completed shortly before the episode was released, and they didn't have time to create a variety of ships, leading to this "shortcut."

Question: How do the "door transporters" outside Starfleet work? People just seem to walk straight into them and vanish, a) faster than normal transporters, and b) without any indication they're controlling where they're going. There's no sign saying where each door connects to, are people just hoping for the best?

Answer: My guess is that they go to 1 place and they can't chose where to go. Like a highway without exits, you just end up where the highway stops.
