Corrected entry: In the scene where Uhura comes to the bridge to bring Scottie his "dinner", look carefully at Scottie's right hand when he grabs the packet. His middle finger has been missing since before he was originally hired for the TV show but they hid that fact (even bringing in a hand double when close-ups of Scottie's hands were needed). Here, however, you get a clear view of his missing digit. (James Doohan lost his finger during WWII) (00:16:20)
Corrected entry: Cybok, Spock's half-brother, has a messy ponytail through almost the entire film. When Kirk decides to go down to the planet (where God may preside), Cybok's messy ponytail is apparent as they enter the turbo lift. Presumably a few minutes later, they are on the shuttle craft. Cybok's ponytail is gone, and his hair is cut and neat. Did he get a trim in the turbo lift so he'd look nice for when he met God?
Corrected entry: Kirk and McCoy start climbing the turbo shaft then Spock realises he can get them up the shaft faster with his rocket boots so he goes to get them. Then he comes down from above them which means he had to go up to whatever deck his boots were on to retrieve them. But if he was able to get that far up the ship without Sybok's soldiers spotting him, why not just have Kirk and McCoy go with him to the boot level instead of climbing the shaft from the very bottom?
Corrected entry: The crew's reaction to Sybok taking over of the ship is unrealistic. Unless otherwise told not to do anything by their Captain, they would not readily take orders from Sybok and would do all within their power to overthrow him, not casually act as if nothing has changed in the chain of command.
Corrected entry: When they reach the planet with "God" on it, the crew is up on the enterprise and are watching the events transpire. The viewscreen shows the 4 heroes walking away from the shuttlecraft, but it's as if there's a camera several feet to the side of the shuttle craft. Wouldn't any recording devices have to be attached to the craft? If they can pull up any image from any vantage point regardless of camera placement, then why do they bother even going down to planets?
Corrected entry: When Kirk is making the emergency call to starfleet the stars outside the window are moving by as if the ship were at impulse speed. Why are the stars moving so slow if they are supposed to be at maximum warp towards the great barrier?
