When Odyssey accidentally enters the minefield, the Captain orders full reverse engines. Odyssey then dips its nose much like a Formula One car. In space, Odyssey would simply have slowed down in a straight line as there are no external forces such as airflow acting on its structure and it doesn't have suspension. For Odyssey to make the move it did, the reverse engines would have to be aimed downwards which as far as control of the ship goes, would change its course and make it unmanageable to maneuver effectively for this purpose.
When Anateo is in space, he is floating toward the ship. He fires a conventional hand gun four times directly toward the ship, and once above his head. The recoil from each shot should push him away from the direction of the bullets, but his approach to the ship is not slowed by the first four bullets, and he moves toward the last bullet when he should move away from it.
When Odyssey gets attacked by the Lucian Alliance ships for the first time, the sensor screen shows the unique shape of a Prometheus class vessel. Odyssey (a Daedalus class vessel) has a very different shape.
(an alarm goes off in the cargo ship)
Mitchell: What's that?
Vala: Life support seems to be failing. Can you take over?
(Vala stops the beeping)
Mitchell: Great, you fixed that, how about fixing the stabilizers?
Vala: I didn't fix anything, I just disabled that annoying alarm.
Vala: I couldn't be sure, so I just beamed out the only other life-sign in the room instead.
Daniel: Okay, where is he?
(Vala looks toward viewport, where Anateo is floating outside the ship)
Daniel: Well, Sam did say it was risky.
Vala: Hmm, when she's right, she's right.
(Vala picks up crystal)
Sam: It's the wrong one, you can't just jam it in!
(Vala jams in crystal, hyperdrive comes on line)
Sam: How did you do that?
Vala: Honestly, I don't know. That almost never normally works.
Landry: Is there anything new coming? Because this feels like a rerun
Anateo: I've always felt that a civilization can be judged by two things: its food and its women. (looks at Sam) I'd say yours is only halfway there.
Gavos: I thought you didn't like to show your face.
Mitchell: I'm seeing a therapist.
Netan: You are the biggest fool in two galaxies. (signs off)
Tenat: But Netan, I… I screwed up.
Vala: Hey, what happened, how did you get the Lucien Alliance to fire on each other?
Mitchell: Oh, you'll love this
Sam: Ummm, before you tell us, I got long-range communications back online and sent a message to Earth telling them that we'll be coming home
Mitchell: Yeah... should probably add that we have officially declared war on the Lucien Alliance
Sam: I did.
Daniel: Ummm... you should probably prepare to return fire
Marks: For the record, I'm always prepared. I just have to press this button here.
Daniel: Right! I just...I thought that's what you're supposed to say, so...
Marks: I know.
