Goof: If the corrosive material being fired at the Andromeda in the first act came from outside, and a hull breach is "imminent", how is it that the corrosive material got inside?
Goof: During the scene in which the "princess" observes the "fire at will" transmission, the International Business Machine logo is clearly visible at the top of the transmission monitor.
The Andromeda is fully crewed in this episode.
Goof: During the firefight on the Maru, Beka is shown beginning to climb up a ladder, then the scene cuts to her finishing her climb downwards off the ladder.
Harper: Yes, oh Glorious-Creation-Of-Mine-With-The-World's-Crappiest-Timing?
At the time Harper says the above, it is actually Andromeda's AI speaking to Harper, NOT Rommie, who he did create.
Trance uses a bonsai tree in this episode to travel back in time. In Season One's "Angel Dark, Demon Bright", when Trance 'accidentally' took the crew back in time and defeated the Nietzscheans at the battle of Witchhead Nebula, the episode ended with her pruning one of her trees, then saying "That's better", giving a first hint that her ability to affect fate is connected to her hobby.
We see that the Andromeda is not fully crewed, but has a security team and a few others.
It is revealed Trance was on board the Andromeda minutes before it got frozen 300 years ago.
Nitpick: One of the patrons of the bar where Dylan, Tyrand Beka go to meet their contact sneers at Tyr for being a Nietzschean. But Tyr no longer has his forearm bone spikes, the most readily identifiable sign of the Nietzschean race, so how did the man know his racial identity at a glance?
Harper says the last time Trance slip-piloted, they wound up back in time. Future-Trance has slip-streamed since then, she did in Season Two "In Heaven Now are Three". Trance (version 1) also slip-piloted during the first season finale. While that resulted in meeting the Magog Worldship, that wasn't her fault. It could also be argued that the first "mistake" wasn't one at all, but rather Trance making sure that Dylan and Andromeda would stop the Nietzscheans from becoming too powerful for them to bring back the Commonwealth upon their return.
Slow aging is not no aging. The crew of the Bellerophon apparently travel so fast that time passes very slowly for them but not for those outside. A few months of their time is more than 57 years of real time. However, since they claimed to have spent 20 years of their time, which is almost 3000 years regular time, why are the crew not older? Some of the crew must have started the trip in their teens or younger if they have aged 20 years.
Sid doesn't seem to be going by the name "Sam Profit" anymore, as he was back in "The Pearls That Were His Eyes".
Goof: Beka says that her pillows conform to the neck "for extra lumbar support". Unfortunately, the lumbar vertebrae are in the lower back; those in the neck are called the cervical vertebrae.
Goof: When Harper plays back Zeus's message on the Maru, the IBM logo can clearly be seen on the monitor.
The sign above the door panel on Fellenhoff Drift in the opening act reads "шьзщке фтв учзщке". This is actually the phrase "import and export" written on an English keyboard using Cyrillic characters.
The poem for the Vase of Rimni: "Where are you going, my fine young knight, Where are you going, across land and sea? To fight for what is good, stop what is bad, All for the vase of Rimni."
Considering their later actions, the Collectors may well have been the people behind falsely acccusing Dylan and wanting to obtain the "Vase of Rimni", since it bestows "the sympathy of the cosmos".
This is the first episode that the new Commonwealth is featured.
Goof: If the gravity on the command deck turned off, it wouldn't cause Dylan to float up to the ceiling, as was shown in the episode; lack of gravity would not have affected his body's inertia. In other words, no gravity means that any movement he made would propel him in the corresponding direction, whether up to the ceiling, down to the deck, or sideways. But standing still, or lying down, unless he moved, he would have remained where he was, because of the Law of Inertia.
Neither Beka nor Dylan seems suspicious to the appearance of the kitten, which Rommie later mentions have been extinct for thousands of years in "Delenda Est".
