Star Trek: Generations

Audio problem: Counsellor Troi visits Picard in his quarters after he finds out that his brother dies. Listen to Picard say "Counsellor - er". There is an audio editing mistake of some sort where you could clearly hear that his voice was dubbed over the original, the original being off by a fraction of a second. The "er" sound from "Counsellor" is repeated. (00:38:20)

Audio problem: When Kirk circles his horse around Picard, his dialogue concerning the empty captain's chair sounds as if it was dubbed in afterwards. (01:37:35)

Audio problem: In Stellar Cartography, Data has to reposition his chair to work on another panel. To do so without getting up he places his hands on the panel to pull himself across to the other position. As he does, there is a sound of an electric motor moving him. But as the scene draws to a close and Data gets up, you can see the chair is a dressed up standard office desk chair, with casters, no motor, and no tracks for it to slide on.

Suggested correction: In Stellar Cartography, Data moves the entire console not just the chair. The sound came from the console, maybe it is magnetically locked in place, the sound coming from it unlocking and re-locking.

Other mistake: When Capt. Picard is talking about a prisoner transfer, he says he will beam over to the Klingon Ship, then they can beam him down to the planet. He beams off the ship, and is then on the planet, but his transporter pattern (which should be Klingon red) is blue, the Starfleet pattern colour. He must have gone to the Klingon ship first, as his communicator is on his chest when he leaves the Enterprise, but gone when he lands on the planet, meaning someone, obviously the Klingons, took it off him. And don't say the Klingons gave the Enterprise the co-ordinates for Dr Soran's missile site, they're cleverer than that. (01:01:45)

Trivia: The original ending for Generations involved Soren shooting Kirk in the back and Picard finding the body, so he did technically die alone, but the test audiences hated seeing the heroic James Kirk bite it in the back, so all three actors were called in to reshoot the ending, making Kirk's death more purposeful.

Question: How did Kirk die? He got hit by a lot of debris but from what was seen, not enough to do real damage.

Answer: Kirk also fell a considerable distance, clinging onto the platform as it dislodged from the cliff and rolled several times. In addition to being crushed/hit by debris, the fall and the rolling would have caused further serious trauma.

In addition to this statement, Kirk would have had servere internal bleeding as seen by the blood coming from his mouth.
