Goofs

Character error 

In the meeting with LaForge's senior officers, Wesley suggests to Lt. Barclay that he should check the flow capacitor on his malfunctioning anti-gravity device. In the next scene, Barclay tells Troi that he already knew about the "flux capacitor." (The flux capacitor is the famous fictional device from Back to the Future that makes time travel possible.)

When the ship is in danger, La Forge calls his senior engineers into a conference to solve a problem. But in both Star Trek: The Next Generation: Contagion, and Star Trek: The Next Generation: Booby Trap, La Forge handled such problems alone.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

When Picard calls La Forge on the holodeck regarding the injector problem, he forgets to activate his com-badge first. However, as has been seen in previous episodes, on the bridge, activating the com-badge is unnecessary. All the bridge requires is voice activation.

Plot holes 

Since the containers in the cargo bay are medical materials, they should be handled by the medical technicians not engineers.

Revealing mistakes 

Just after Picard tells La Forge to make Barclay his "project" he turns his display screen towards him to study it, but the screen is blank.

In many of the physical-combat scenes, obvious stunt doubles are used in place of the actors for the wide-angle/far-away shots. A notable example in this episode is where (in the far-away shots) an obvious fight/stunt double can be seen sword-fighting in place of Dwight Schultz (Lt. Barclay) on the holodeck.
