The End Is the Beginning - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When Commodore Oh appears in an odd Men In Black cosplay to Dr. Agnes Jurati in Okinawa, Agnes removes her earplugs and lowers her arms, but in the next shot she is still shown with her right hand raised. (00:16:15)

The End Is the Beginning - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: At Raffi's home, when she rips into Picard and tells him how she had lost her security clearance and more, Raffi stands up and grabs both the bottle and red glass then walks away from the table. In the overhead long shot, as Raffi walks down the steps the bottle is in her right hand, and her left hand is empty, then when Picard stands up we see Raffi's red glass is back on the table near her chair.

The End Is the Beginning - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: Picard, panting after the walk through Vasquez Rocks, tells Raffi he's sorry. Michelle Hurd in the first close-up and wide shot has her hand on her knee, with the arm coming up from the inside leg. In the close-up that follows, she is leaning her face on her hand as it comes up from the other side of the leg. From then on her head position changes inconsistently as well. (00:14:05)

The End Is the Beginning - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: Picard during his conversation with Raffi on the bench outside the Federation HQ building is at one point sitting with his arm folded, no tablet in hand or lap. By the end of the convo, without him moving, the tablet reappears in his arms, clutched to his chest. (00:04:55)

The End Is the Beginning - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: Zhaban put in a bag some delicacies for Picard. When he mentions "Madame Arnaud's terrine d'oie" his hand is holding the jar in the first shot, during which you can see his hand turn to hold one of the bag's handles. But in the reverse shot he is still holding the jar, and puts it in the bag. (00:27:10)

The End Is the Beginning - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: In her quarters Soji tells Narek "If you had asked me 5 minutes" etc.; her mundane-looking special necklace pops out of her shirt's collar on her right. After a brief reverse shot when she does move her neck, her necklace is all the way in front of her collar on the left. (00:36:05)

The End Is the Beginning - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: After the action scene at Chateau Picard, we see Soji talking with Ramdha. Ramdha is placing the romulan tarots in configurations not coherent between shots; for instance when Soji says "the pixmit, how do they work?" there's a space she'd wedge the card in, but in the overhead close-up she is putting it to the side of two cards.

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.
