Star Trek V: The Final Frontier

Revealing mistake: When Sybok lifts Kirk off the ground in the shuttle bay, wires are visible holding up Kirk by his legs.

Revealing mistake: In the beginning of the movie where Kirk falls off the mountain, it's very obvious that he's falling against a backdrop.

Revealing mistake: The graphic display showing the Enterprise lowering shields is actually just a repeat of the earlier display showing the vessel raising her shields...played backwards. The giveaway is the screen still reads "Activating Deflector Shields" even though Scotty is supposed to be dropping them.

Revealing mistake: On Sha-Ka-Ri, after Kirk says "I seek proof", and the camera goes to "God", then back, you can plainly tell it's a stunt double, and see the wire connected to the harness he's wearing to pull him backwards after getting zapped.

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.

Trivia: This probe which the Klingon ship destroyed is either the Pioneer 10 or 11. This is based on the plaque it carries. The Voyager 1 and 2 spacecraft, launched a few years after the Pioneer spacecraft, had a child on their plaques along with the man and woman.
