Star Trek III: The Search for Spock

Other mistake: On the backside of the DVD near the bottom is a series of six images purportedly from the movie. The second image shows the crew in uniform, including Mr. Spock, standing in the Federation Council chamber. This image comes from the movie Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (after the crew has returned to Earth and is waiting to hear the Council's judgment).

Continuity mistake: When Kirk, McCoy and Sulu beam aboard the Enterprise we switch to an outside shot and the bridge lights come on, a very bright white light that lights up all three windows, but when we go inside the bridge is very dark with only a few lights on. The main lights come on when they man their stations.

Suggested correction: What is being described are not 3 windows, they are 3 lights for lighting up the ships registry and name. There are no windows in a Constitution class' Bridge, original or refit.

Question: The data for Genesis are transmitted to Kruge, however, later, he has one of his men murder David Marcus (Admiral Kirk's son) and demands Genesis from Kirk. He had already downloaded the data, so what additional information did Kruge want? (00:09:30)

Chosen answer: Kruge only had the proposal video that talked about what Genesis was. He didn't have any actual data on how Genesis works or how it could be created. Having footage of a nuclear blast doesn't give you knowledge about how to build a nuclear device.
