Corrected entry: When the Enterprise first encounters V'ger, Spock determines that they cannot communicate because V'ger is transmitting at a frequency and speed that is too advanced for Enterprise to interpret. At the end of the movie, when they finally encounter V'ger itself, they determine that it cannot communicate with Earth because it is using 300 year old technology and no one on Earth can receive the signal.

Corrected entry: How do they have an external view of the three Klingon ships that were vaporized? Even if the ships had the ability to transmit external visuals, after the last ship was destroyed, how are they able to see images of empty space where the ships had been? The same thing happens when the Epsilon station is destroyed. Where is the external camera?wizard_of_gore
Corrected entry: In the beginning of the movie as Kirk flies around the Enterprise with his shuttle in spacedock 2 mistakes occur. First when the shuttle turns and starts flying towards the front of the ship, the shuttle flies partly inside the Enterprise hull, showing it's CGI. Second when we get to see Kirk from behind inside the shuttle, the shuttle is still behind the Enterprise, while in the previous shot it had gone past half of the lower part of the ship.
Corrected entry: This is only in the "extended version" of the video, as far as I know. When the Enterprise is inside VGer, Spock leaves the ship and flies around in a spacesuit. He exits and re-enters the ship in a white spacesuit with a round helmet, but is shown flying around in an orange suit with a conical helmet.
Corrected entry: Spock accelerates to a high speed using the thruster pack to enter the orifice. Once it burns out it's useless and Spock abandons it. Even though, once inside, he witnesses images of endless space, it remains that he's really inside a rather small chamber. How did Spock expect to slow himself gradually before slamming into the far wall of the chamber?
Corrected entry: The ship is shown one time accelerating from warp 1 to warp 7. The event of reaching warp 7 is accompanied by a spectral-colored tube. After reaching warp 1 no maneuver (as long as the speed stays above warp 1) changes the visual appearence of the flight (i.e. the white streaks passing the star ship).Christoph Galuschka
Corrected entry: At the beginning of the film, the Space Station is tracking the fight between the Klingon ships and V'ger. At one point, the crew on the Space Station have footage of the Klingons on the bridge of one of the ships. This should not be possible as the Klingons did not contact the Space Station.
Corrected entry: Starship Enterprise is pressed into service against the alien cloud, the reason given being that it's the only starship within intercept range. It seems that only a grossly inept defensive organization would leave Earth with only a single, unfinished ship for its defense. There ought to have been an entire fleet of well-armed spacecraft available to rendezvous with V'ger.
Corrected entry: in the scene where the crew is viewing Vger attacking a space station, the station switched from station crew view to outer view showing Vger. after the station was destroyed, Vger was still seen. If the station was destroyed, how was it still transmitting video?
Corrected entry: When Spock arrives in his little long-range shuttle, he is greeted at the airlock by Mister Chekov who is noticeably pleased to see his old comrade. Spock then leaves before and without Chekov. He heads to the bridge and arrives there alone while everyone is pleasantly surprised to see him. Kirk then turns and gives an order to Chekov. Chekov? When did he get there? There is no sound of a turbolift opening after Spock's and he didn't arrive with him. Even if Spock did dilly dally around before going to the bridge, allowing Chekov to get there first (which is extremely unlikely as he had no luggage to drop off at his quarters), did Chekov decide not to tell everyone Spock was here? Or did he tell them and they are just faking their surprise?Garlonuss
Corrected entry: Kirks log states that they must risk engaging warp speed while still in the solar system. When did this become an issue? For example (only one of many from the series), in "The Naked Time," Scotty tells Kirk that they will be "warping out of orbit" a mere second after Kirk gives the word. And even if that was a new rule, why couldn't they just move up past the plane of our solar system and then warp out. Star Trek seems to have this idea that a fly-by of all the outer planets is necessary when entering or leaving our system. In fact, one could simply enter or leave at an angle perpendicular to the general plane of the planetary orbits.Garlonuss
Corrected entry: When the crew first figures out that V'ger was an old Voyager probe, Decker says that Voyager disappeared into what "they used to call a black hole". Why didn't he use the 23rd century term? That's like saying you went driving around in what "they used to call a horseless carriage".
Corrected entry: In the beginning three Klingon ships are moving in to investigate "the cloud". I know that they are not the most friendly of species but is it common practice to initiate first contact with weapons fire? Also, we know it is "honorable" for a Klingon to die in battle. However, the last ship left was facing and moving away from the cloud. Why didn't they go to warp? If, for some reason, their warp capabilities weren't functioning it would have been nice to see that they at least tried.
Corrected entry: V'Ger considers humanoids controlling the Enterprise as an infection, unnecessary like a virus. On the other hand Spock finds out that V'Ger has travelled the whole universe searching for answers. Why doesn't V'Ger know that biological units are building and commanding spaceships? V'Ger must have already met Breen, Hirogen, and thousand other biological astronauts.Goekhan
