Anachronisms 

During the Intro Sequence from Season 4 onward the Defiant Model is different from the rest of the series, the bridge section is lower than it is during the series, when it should be above the main section.

Character error 

The number of Dax hosts Jadzia and Ezri state there have been, fluctuates throughout the series and is usually inaccurate. After Verad became another host in a season 2 episode, and Joran was acknowledged to be a previously-missing host in a season 3 episode, there are 10 hosts in all: Ezri is the tenth, and after Joran and Verad are counted Jadzia is the ninth. Yet Ezri in her only season (7) states she is the eighth, and Jadzia after season 3 usually states SHE is the eighth (counting Joran but forgetting about Verad), though before Joran was discovered (season 3) but after Verad (season 2), Jadzia still says she is the eighth (she counts Verad).

Factual errors 

In several episodes, Bajor is depicted as having several moons with apparently normal atmospheres and gravity. But if the moons were that large/dense/massive, they would not simply be orbiting Bajor. Bajor and the moons would be orbiting each other in a kind of cluster, which might have resulted in occasional collisions in the past.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

The drink Kanar; We see several different people pouring Kanar into glasses throughout the series, both Cardassians and Quark. The liquid we see varies from a thin pink fluid in one episode to a thick dark fluid that almost looks like molasses in another, to a whiskey like liquid in a later episode. However, many Earth drinks have different colors and consistencies. Rum, for example, comes in clear and dark coloration. Tea comes in over 3000 varieties, with variations in color. Milkshakes comes in various colors and consistencies depending on the ingredients used, from a thin water-like consistency to one as thick as ice-cream.

During the opening title sequence, the wormhole is shown at inconsistent angles to how it looks as the crew observe it from the station's windows. In the title sequence, the wormhole is angled upward at approximately a 40° angle. When the crew observes it from the station, it's pointed down at about a 260° angle. However, it must be remembered not only is there no "up" or "down" in space, but also that the DS9 station is mobile. It is transportable via thrusters and so can be repositioned at any angle around the wormhole by the crew for whatever purpose they see fit.

Plot holes 

Several times, Starfleet or Bajoran military characters remove their comm badges to avoid location by the station computer. However, in one episode, Sisko uses the computer to find Jake, which means it must have a secondary location algorithm that, for some reason, never kicks in when it would be inconvenient to the plot.
