Factual error: In the scene where Picard opens a viewing port and shows Lilly that she is in a starship orbiting Earth he shows her New Guinea and Australia. New Zealand is missing. (00:42:45)
Star Trek: First Contact (1996)
Directed by: Jonathan Frakes
Starring: Patrick Stewart, James Cromwell, Alfre Woodard, Michael Dorn, Brent Spiner, Jonathan Frakes, Marina Sirtis, Alice Krige, LeVar Burton, Gates McFadden
Star Trek: First Contact is about the Next Generation crew facing off against the Borg as they attempt to thwart the first warp drive space flight and their subsequent visit by aliens. During the battle, the Borg Queen is revealed and Data is tempted by becoming somewhat more human. A must-see among the few films that have the Next Generation logo.
Suggested correction: Actually when you look at Australia and New Zealand from orbit, New Zealand is a lot further away from Australia then shown on a map, also a lot more south of Australia. A map is a 2D image of a sphere, causing proportions to be off (its well known Africa is a lot smaller on maps than it is in real life). Especially the further south or north you go distances are way off. The depiction shown in the movie is actually correct, in that angle New Zealand is just outside of the frame. There are plenty of pictures from orbit to compare.
Zefram Cochrane: I gotta take a leak.
La Forge: Leaks? I'm not detecting any leaks.
Zefram Cochrane: Doesn't anyone pee in the 24th Century?
Question: One of the crew members tells Worf that the Borg control decks 26 to 11, and stopped when they reached deck 11. Picard says, "We can't get to deflector control or a shuttle craft." I did some research, and the main shuttle bay is on deck 6. So why can't they get to a shuttlecraft? Would this be a plot hole?
Answer: The borg took control of specific areas of the ship as part of their plan. This included deflector control and the shuttle bay.
My mistake. The main shuttle bay is around decks 5 and 6. The Borg didn't take control of those decks until after the beacon was destroyed.
