Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country

Continuity mistake: When Kirk and Sulu are talking about the details of the peace conference, you can see Sulu on the small display behind Kirk. When Kirk asks when the conference starts, you can see on the small display that someone leans in to tell Sulu the information. When the camera cuts to Sulu the person is no longer leaning in but is standing behind Sulu. (01:28:20)

Revealing mistake: When the Enterprise begins to leave the spacedock, the background inside spacedock (behind Enterprise) seems to move in two different directions, the top moves towards the right, the bottom towards the left.

Continuity mistake: At the dinner you can see the contents in Kirk's glass changing from full, to nearly empty, to half-full again, without Kirk either drinking from the glass or having the glass refilled.

Budoshi

Continuity mistake: In the opening scene when Sulu is on the bridge and the energy wave begins vibrating the Excelsior, when Sulu's tea cup begins vibrating across the table, it's first seen closer to Sulu. The next close shot shows it vibrating right to the edge of the table. Yet in the next wide shot, it's back where it was near Sulu again. Then in the following close, it's back at the edge, this time sliding off to the floor. (00:04:00)

Continuity mistake: When the Excelsior enters the battle in orbit of Khitomer, General Chang's Bird Of Prey is on top of her. However, when he orders to fire upon her, she is hit from below.

Continuity mistake: When Valeris advises Kirk that there is a supply of Romulan ale onboard, the clock behind her reads 16:14:08. After Kirk commends her and leaves the bridge and the camera switches to Spock, the clock reads 16:14:06. (00:19:25)

Continuity mistake: After welcoming Gorkon to dinner, Kirk walks over to Spock and says "I hope you're happy". The clock behind Spock first shows 16:13:57 as Kirk is walking over, and then 16:13:55 when he reaches Spock. (00:19:20)

Continuity mistake: At the end, as the crew are talking about being arrested for feelings, the time on the bridge clock is 17:56:19 as Chekov sits down. We hear the viewscreen activate, cut to see Sulu talking, and the time above the screen is suddenly 17:56:28.
