Star Trek: Picard

Maps and Legends - S1-E2

Plot hole: Some part of the dialogue between Jean-Luc Picard and Admiral Kirsten Clancy must have been left on the editing room floor, because when Commodore Oh refers to the conversation the two had, says that "He referred to Zhat Vash by name." He did not. (00:21:30 - 00:37:30)

Stardust City Rag - S1-E5

Plot hole: Mr. Vup is a Beta Annari, and they can, as it is stated (and for comedy purpose stated again) literally "smell" lies. However, Raffi gives Rios a unique concoction that camouflages lies, and it is made of drugs (beta blockers, anxiolytics, benzos). At least two things don't make sense here. First, Picard gets no shot and his whole flamboyant performance is one big lie from beginning to end, but he is not sniffed out - you'd also assume they could easily tell he has both eyes, since they have various detectors. Second, when the substances kick in as Rios is forced to lie openly, even us the audience, as olfactory-impaired as we are, can see he is getting high as a kite from him making a funny face; a species that can detect subtle changes in a metabolism over a simple lie, surely would detect when someone has such a dramatic alteration in front of their eyes - and see that as a telltale sign of something fishy going on.

Remembrance - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Right at the beginning, the camera zooms into the Enterprise through a view that shows 3 windows of equal size. In the rest of the scene, Jean-Luc Picard and Data are playing poker in front of two side windows and a central window that is wider than the other two combined. (00:00:30)

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.
