Corrected entry: When Picard leaves the bridge with the first landing party, he leaves Riker in charge of the bridge. A few scenes later, he orders down an engineering detail; a few scenes after that, Riker is now on the planet surface (in the missile silo with Picard, Data and Troi). Perhaps there is a scene on the cutting room floor that accounts for this apparent dereliction of duty? (00:17:15 - 00:23:40)
Corrected entry: At the end, when Picard is standing outside of Engineering, it looks perfectly normal. He doesn't even see any Borg on his way or just outside the doors, even though by this point the Borg have taken over pretty much the whole ship. But, at the beginning, when Data is captured, outside of Engineering there are Borg all around and the walls are all torn apart with wires hanging down, etc.
Corrected entry: The steam coming from the hole in the deflector dish scene falls back on the ship hull even though there's no gravity and no air pressure - the steam should just shoot out into space.
Corrected entry: They establish on the holodeck that traditional projectile weapons (like a tommy gun - hard to adapt to bullets) will kill Borg. Why don't they make these in the replicator instead of making the phaser rifles they know will only work a few times? Nothing to do with the borg adapting (and they'd be made in the replicater, NOT the holodeck) - hard to adapt to solid bullets ripping through your vital systems. Can't be a worry about the hull - simple steel will stop bullets and Starfleet ships are built with "Tritanium", "Duranium" and other futuristic materials mentioned in the series. I doubt a machine gun round would even scratch a bulkhead.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the Enterprise destroys the Borg sphere the Enterprise's quantum torpedoes exhibit the visible distortion made when they pass through the ship's shields. However it has already been established that the Enterprise's shields are off-line following their trip back through time.
Corrected entry: When Lilly and Jean Luc are arguing in the captain's ready room look carefully at Picard's mouth when Lilly screams "Jean Luc blow up the damn ship!" Even a Shakespearean trained actor like Patrick Stewart sometimes can't stop himself from mouthing the other actor's dialogue. He mouths the same thing. I am not sure if this can be seen on the VHS or Non-letterboxed version, but you cans see it on the DVD Letterboxed version.
Corrected entry: WWIII didn't seem to do much damage. People have clothes, houses and even electricity. Riker states 37 million people are dead and very few governments are left. 37 million is only 10% of the US population and about .6% of the world population (please forgive the callousness of "only" 37 million.) One would think that government would return a year or less after such a small war. Especially since the majority of government leaders would most likely have escaped to shelters. After all, WWII was 6 years long, killed close to 50 million people and the major world governments never came close to falling (by falling I refer to anarchy as opposed to a new government). One would think casualties would be closer to 500 million-1 billion in order to truly cripple society.Grumpy Scot
Corrected entry: At one point, several Borg venture out into open space to battle the Enterprise Crew who are in spacesuits trying to disconnect the main dish antenna. The Borg are not wearing any form of protection from the space. Isn't the temperature in open space just about absolute zero? It's at least minus 200-300 degrees F. How could their biological parts survive the hostile environment of open space?
Corrected entry: During the scene where Picard, Worf and Lt. Hawk are on the outside of the ship, Lt. Hawk becomes assimilated by the Borg. Soon afterwards, Worf blasts him into space. At the end of the scene there is a shot of the deflector dish area. Three officers can be seen walking around the dish, even though only Picard & Worf should remain.
Corrected entry: Right after Crusher wakes Lili up, the Borg punch the door and make a big dent - Crusher brings the holographic doctor online, she says "20 Borg are about to break through that door." But no one told her that the Borg were on board.
Corrected entry: Other than for convenience for the script, there is absolutely no reason the Borg needed to wait until they got to Earth to use the time vortex to go into Earth's past. They could have made the journey back in time long before they decided to make their attack, then surprise Earth with no one to stop them.
Corrected entry: It's stated that as long as the safety protocol is turned off holographic bullets can kill while on the holodeck. So why not just build a machine gun out of the holographic program? It seems rather pointless and kind of overkill to steal a Tommygun out of a holo-novel.
Corrected entry: When Lili shoots at Data, shouldn't that hurt him? There was an episode where Troi shot an arrow through Data (the one where Q made them re-enact the Robin Hood story). While it didn't damage him, they made it sound like it could have. Even if he was bullet proof, being hit by that many bullets should at least have damaged his clothes.
Corrected entry: Why, why, why the hell didn't the Borg just travel back a few hundred years earlier to Earth (like the 1600s or something) so they could just take over much more easily?
Corrected entry: The whole premise for this film is blown if you consider that the Borg are after technology. Why would they want to go back in time to assimilate a race that has almost no 'technological distinctiveness' to add to their own. Earth has a tremendous amount to offer during Picard's time and very little during Cochran's time. The hassle of time traveling to assimilate a pre-warp capable world seems like a waste of effort. Sending a few more cubes to finish the job in Picard's time seems much more advantageous.
