Star Trek V: The Final Frontier

Trivia: If I am correct the Yoman who gives Kirk the status report he signs on the bridge is in reality William Shatner's daughter, Melanie Shatner, who had also appeared in TOS Episode Miri as one of the children.

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.

Trivia: The sound effect used for the brig prison bars is the exact same effect used in Predator when you see from the POV of the Predator in thermal mode.

Trivia: The Vulcan word for Heaven or Eden was Sha Ka Ree, an intentional play on the name Sean Connery, the first actor asked to play the role of Sybok.

Trivia: Producer Harve Bennett appears as the Starfleet Officer who orders Kirk and the Enterprise back into action.

Trivia: Enterprise-D sets from Star Trek the Next Generation 24th Century were use for filming the corridors and sickbay scenes. A 24th Century LCARS panel is partially seen when Scotty is shown lying in sickbay.

Trivia: As Scotty holds the bag Uhura brought him, you can see that his right middle finger is missing. James Doohan suffered the loss of it during the war, and so usually kept his hand closed when it was on screen.

Trivia: Just before Kirk tells Scotty to open the bay doors of the Enterprise, a beeping sound is heard inside the shuttlecraft. This same sound effect is heard inside the Russian spacecraft during the probe scene in 2010: The Year We Make Contact.



Continuity mistake: When Spock, wearing rocket boots, is in the turboshaft carrying Kirk and McCoy on either arm, he fires the booster rockets, thus propelling the three of them up the turboshaft. If you watch carefully, the deck numbers in the background as they rise upwards go as follows: 35, 52, 64, back to 52, 77, 78, and then 78 again! Not content with one goof, Kirk and McCoy can quite clearly be seen with their feet dangling in mid air, not on Spock's boots. They aren't exactly clinging to him either, more like leaning against him. Surely Kirk and McCoy would be unable to hold onto him!
