Yep, but name an episode of the series or any of the movies that are error and gaffe free!

I'd have to disagree with that personally, many of the standalone episodes in season 1 and 2 are a lot more interesting than most of the standalone ones of seasons 6 and 7 - only in 3,4,5 are they really good.

It's a larger structure than the Earth station?

Obviously, as the show progressed, the stories and the visuals only got better. I was thoroughly impressed with the Klingon battle in "Redemption Pt. 1"...extremely ambitious visual FX for its time.
I thought so as well at the time, especially the space effects. I enjoy watching the evac and departure sequence here as much as the TSFS one.

(11001001 is among favourite season 1 eps for me, gaffes regardless!!)
