Visible crew/equipment: Beth attempts to convince Norman to inject himself with a tranquilizer by trapping him in a room and filling it with water. As the water rises, Norman frantically looks for a way out. There is a quick overhead shot of this scene that flashes on for just a second, and if you look around the perimeter of the room - you will see the entire crew, complete with camera and lights.

Suggested correction: This is simply not true. I have just watched that scene and didn't notice it, so I slowed it down to a third speed and still didn't see it.

Visible crew/equipment: When Norman gets back into the ship, Beth lies down with him for a few seconds. When the camera takes a shot from directly above the two, you can see a crewman's leg in the left side of the screen.

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene after the storm warning has been received, as Captain Harold C. Barnes takes something out of the shelf, a microphone is visible for some seconds at the top (seen on VCR version).

Plot hole: The first time they communicate with the "entity" in the spaceship, they find a correspondence between numbers sent by the entity and letters of the alphabet. The entity presents itself as "Jerry". Later on, the entity tells Dustin Hoffman, "Stop calling me Jerry" - and then Dustin Hoffman realizes that the number-letter correspondence was wrong, and the actual name of the entity was "Harry". But if that is true, how could they have communicated without problems before? The very first word that the entity used was "hello", which would have to be displayed wrong, since it begins with an "h" and has an "e".
