Star Trek: The Next Generation - Picard Demoted?
At one point in the episode Picard and Data leave engineering and enter a turbolift. While on the lift you can notice that Picard only has three pips on his collar. Pips are the little circles which represent rank. Three gold pips, which is what Picard had, is only the rank of commander. He should have four gold ones because he is a captain. When they exit the turbolift onto the bridge his rank is restored.

If you have seen Star Trek: Insurrection, when caption Picard resigns starfleet, he just easily takes off his pips, like they are magnets. So one probably fell off, and later he got another one in between scenes.

This appears to be a slip-up in the classic sense (a production thing, not a dispute about the value of absolute value or the Event Horizon). I doubt that Picard, having lost a pip, could find one in the turbolift. Unless there's a replicator in there! :o)

No, you had a clear view of his collar. There was no fourth pip.
