Corrected entry: Starfleet has serious regulations on bringing future technology to inappropriate time periods (which is why the Bird of Prey remained cloaked during it's time in 1986). Chekov being fully aware and considerate of these regulations, considering he has been in Starfleet for about 20 years should have never tossed the Klingon phaser (23rd Century technology) at the navy officer (20th Century person) with full knowledge that he'll never be able to retrieve it. He is too smart for it to have been panic.
Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Sulu flies the helicopter and accidentally turns on the windshield wiper, look closely at the bottom of the wiper and you can see the crewman's finger manually moving the wiper. (01:18:55)
Spock: Your use of language has altered since our arrival. It is currently laced with, shall we say, more colorful metaphors, "double dumb-ass on you" and so forth.
Kirk: Oh, you mean the profanity?
Kirk: Well that's simply the way they talk here. Nobody pays any attention to you unless you swear every other word.
