Star Trek: Generations

Continuity mistake: When the crew of the Enterprise - D is in the Holodeck after Picard has left, Riker is telling Geordi to set royals at stunsail at which time Geordie is looking through a telescope with his right eye. In the next shot when he questions Riker, he takes the telescope down from his left eye. (00:24:05)

Continuity mistake: When Kirk and Soran are fighting on top of the launching structure, Soran falls down the side of the cliff but stops his fall by grabbing a rope hanging from the structure. A moment later the rope loosens and Soran drops fifty feet or so before the rope pulls taught and he stops again. But despite having just dropped fifty feet, he is back at the same place on the cliff before the rope loosened the first time. (01:42:40)

Continuity mistake: Worf bends over twice when he uncovers Soran. (00:26:30)

Continuity mistake: Worf's sash disappears when he is knocked over his console.

Continuity mistake: When Data is moving away pieces, looking for the lifesign and finds his cat, his lenses are not always in. There are times that his eyes are blue. (01:50:30)

Continuity mistake: When Picard first fights Soran on Viridian 3, there is not a single cloud in the sky. Though when Picard returns with Kirk to fight him again (at the exact same time courtesy of the Nexus), it appears to be a very overcast day. (01:19:45 - 01:39:45)

Continuity mistake: When Kirk goes to get the control pad, he slips down the broken catwalk. As he slides, you see his left leg bent under the right, and his foot at impossible angle. A second later, both legs are side by side.

Continuity mistake: When Worf is climbing out of the water, his knees have red on them. Later on the bridge, his pants are clean.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: The two parts of the catwalk seem to be a good six or seven feet apart, a good challenge. But as Kirk goes to jump, the gap then seems to be only three feet. Possible perception from the angles.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: The knot in the rope holding Soren is toward the end of the rope. The knot slips out of the bracing, and the end of the rope goes over the side, meaning there's no help for Soren. A moment later, impossibly, that same knot catches in the same spot of the bracing, saving him.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: On the observatory, Data pops open a small panel on his arm to generate a magnetic field to open the hidden door. In the wide angle, his bared arm appears normal, too fast for the panel on his arm to close.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: When first on the bridge, Chekov's hair is fuller than when he goes to the sickbay.

Movie Nut

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)

Kirk: I'll get it. You go for the launcher.
Picard: No...you'll never make that by yourself. We have to work together.
Kirk: We ARE working together. Trust me. Go!
Picard: Good luck, Captain!
Kirk: Call me Jim.

Trivia: At the end of the film when the Enterprise crew are being rescued from the surface of the planet where they crashed, Picard is transported from the surface by the USS Farragut. This is also the name of the first ship on which Kirk served as a Lieutenant (mentioned in the original series episode 47 Obsession).

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.
