Anachronisms 

When they're chasing the "alien" through the bowels of the ship, one of the poorly lit rooms is actually a basement. You can see the conventional light switch and the conduit on the wall.

Audio/visual unsynchronised 

When Boiler starts yelling to Pinback that he can use the gun to shoot the pins off Bomb #20, his dialogue doesn't match his lips at all.

Character error 

Lt Doolittle's cloth name tape on his uniform is spelled/misspelled "DOOLTTLE", obvious in the first scene in the Food Locker.

When Doolittle looks at the food tray he says; "Chicken again!", but the trays are labeled Brussels sprouts.

When Boiler and Pinback are fighting in the corridor, the gun that Boiler dropped at the beginning of the fight is on the deck not far in front of them, but when they stop fighting and climb the ladder back to the control room, the gun is not there.

Revealing mistakes 

In the elevator shaft, Pinback's long hair keeps on pointing towards the wall whenever he moves his head away from it, revealing the shaft to be a tunnel, with him laying on the ground instead of standing on the ledge.

During the elevator sequence, which was actually shot horizontally in a corridor, you can occasionally see the plank on which Pinback was lying.

Spoilers

The goof items below may give away important plot points.

Audio/visual unsynchronised 

When Pinback says, "Now it's time to go sleepy-bye, you worthless piece of garbage" before shooting the alien, his mouth actually says "worthless piece of crap."

When Pinback darts the alien, there is a flash and "gunshot" type sound; the gun is actually a standard veterinary tranquiliser gun, which uses CO2.
