Star Trek V: The Final Frontier

Character mistake: Near the end of the film, Kirk mentions that he had a brother once, to which Spock appears surprised. Kirk then responds that he was lucky to get him back, referring to Spock's death and rebirth in the second and third films. One problem - Kirk DID have a brother, who died at the end of the original series' first season. Spock doesn't seem like the kind of person to forget about such things, especially as he was nearly killed by the same parasites. Spock's memory may still have been incomplete, although you'd think he'd know such a major detail about his best friend. However, McCoy should definitely remember Kirk's brother, especially seeing as he was the one who pronounced him dead.

Other mistake: Spock lifts his crew mates with the rocket boots. He passes deck numbers 35 through 78 from bottom to top. First off, deck numbers go from top to bottom. The bridge is on deck 1. Second, the Enterprise of that class only had 23 decks.
