Corrected entry: Kruge calls the Federation "a gang of intergalactic criminals"; but the Star Trek universe is not an "intergalactic" setting. Everything in Star Trek takes place in only one galaxy, The Milky Way. "Intergalactic" implies travel between galaxies, which is far beyond the technology of the Federation or the Klingon Empire. Thus, Kruge's remark makes no sense.Charles Austin Miller
Corrected entry: When Kirk hijacks the USS Enterprise from space dock, Captain Styles gives pursuit in the USS Excelsior, and Styles radios a warning to Kirk: "If you do this, you'll never sit in a captain's chair again!" Of course, Kirk is a Starfleet Admiral, not a captain, so sitting in a captain's chair is the least of Kirk's concerns.Charles Miller
Corrected entry: When Uhura is holding "Mr. Adventure" at phaser point to let Kirk McCoy and Sulu get away, after she says "This is fantasy!", she is holding the phaser level and steady. As the shot turns to him, watch her hand. It tilts over to her right by about 60 degrees. When the shot goes back to her, it's straight up again.Movie Nut
Corrected entry: During the Klingon's first scene, the cargo ship noticeably increases in size. As the Bird-of-Prey decloaks above it, the Bird-of-Prey is considerably larger. When the Klingon vessel comes around to destroy it, the cargo ship is now LARGER than the Bird-of-Prey.
Corrected entry: Chekov's clothes change after the Enterprise leaves the Spacedock facility. It was unlikely that he would have taken the time to change his clothes during a moment of crisis.
Corrected entry: In the star trek universe, NX stands for New eXperiment for prototypes. You see many examples of this including Deep Space 9's USS Defiant NX 74205, and NCC stands for Naval Construction Contract (number), which is everywhere else. Once a ship has been moved out of the prototype phase it is assigned NCC, as are all subsequent vessels of the same class.
Corrected entry: During the opening sequence, you can see a highway with cars driving in the bottom left-hand corner of one of the scenes.
Corrected entry: At night on the Genesis planet David, Saavik and young Spock are braving a raging storm. You can see a tree fall over and clearly land on a Klingon. Problem is David, Saavik and Spock have not encountered the Klingons yet.
Corrected entry: When the Enterprise self destruct sequence countdown reaches zero, it goes through an elaborate destruct sequence that tears the ship apart and sends the remains plummeting into the atmosphere of the Genesis Planet. Star Trek producers have said that auto-destruct systems involve an intentional release of the matter and anti-matter fuel. This would cause the ship to go up in a sun-like fireball, and there wouldn't be very much wreckage left - certainly not the amount of wreckage seen in the film.
Corrected entry: As Saavik and David are scanning the Genesis planet, the readout on their computer screen says CELCIUS - 'Celsius' misspelled. The camera zooms in to give you a nice close look.
