Corrected entry: How could a phenomenon like the Nexus travel the galaxy every 39.1 years and nobody know about it for so long? Kirk and the Enterprise-B didn't know what it was, even Picard had to ask Guinan what it was. If the energy ribbon is what killed James T. Kirk that would have been standard knowledge for everyone in Starfleet.
Corrected entry: When Geordi gives the order to evacuate Engineering, he starts to say "Bridge we have a new problem." As he is saying this, the blonde female officer can be seen ducking under the door to escape the room, but when he says, "We're five minutes away from a warp core breach," the same officer is ducking under the door again a second time.jbrbbt
Corrected entry: During the battle with the Klingon Bird of Prey over Viridian III, the Enterprise-D is shown sustaining hits to its front and rear. The bridge is shown taking damage from a shot fired at the underside of the Enterprise, despite being on the top of the ship and away from the Klingon's fire.
Corrected entry: At the end of the film, Captain Picard is shown in a uniform with red on the shoulders and black on the rest (the Star Trek: Voyager/DS9 uniforms), yet when picking through the ruins of the Enterprise, he is seen in a black shoulders/red shirt uniform (the usual TNG uniform). The ship is in ruins: he couldn't have replicated a new uniform as the power is out.
Corrected entry: Near the beginning, on the Enterprise-B's maiden voyage, Sulu's daughter says something like "The starboard ship's hull is collapsing". Seconds later, the PORT ship on the viewer explodes.
Corrected entry: The ribbon obviously moves faster than light (it covers the distance between star systems in a matter of hours), but when it passes Veridian III it moves much, much slower than light.
Corrected entry: During Worf's promotion party on the sailing ship, a harbor buoy is seen in the background 20 feet from the ship.
Corrected entry: Picard's communicator disappears during his transport down to Veridian III. He leaves the Enterprise in a blue transporter beam, and arrives on the planet in a blue transporter beam, minus his communicator. The Klingon transporter, shown earlier when Dr. Soran beamed up to the Klingon Bird of Prey, is an orange beam, thus Picard didn't transport to the Klingon ship for them to remove the communicator. The communicator then reappears in the Nexus, and disappears again when he returns to Veridian III.
Corrected entry: Before Kirk jumps the gap on his horse while in the Nexus, there is a shot from beneath the gap, looking up, and there appears to be a dark colored board or bridge across the gap. When we see Kirk jump the gap, the board is no longer present.
Corrected entry: During the crash sequence on the Enterprise-D, Worf is flying all over the place in the background. Immediately following the star drive's destruction, the shock wave sends Worf flying to his left. He crawls back to his station and then falls to his left again. Immediately following, as Riker is screaming to Deana for a report, you can see Worf's hands holding on to the railing right behind Riker. The next instant he is to the right of his station (our left, bringing himself up) and in the very next scene he is seated at his station.
Corrected entry: It is difficult enough to believe that a missile not much longer than an average car would be capable of destroying a whole star, but if you can swallow that, how come when it does finally explode on the launchpad it only produces enough of a blast to kill the bad guy while Picard and Kirk are presumably only a few yards away behind some rocks?
Corrected entry: As Picard is walking up Kirk in awe, we find him doing an excellent job of chopping wood. The camera changes to Picard, Kirk, and then to picard, before finally switching back to Kirk again. After the fourth piece falls he pauses and says 'Beautiful day' and the camera changes, so as to get a shot of both of them. Just after he says that he raises his axe to get ready to chop a piece that wasn't there a split second ago.
Corrected entry: When Picard finally manages to squeeze through the hole in the force-field, and confronts Soran, they have a brawl. The actual time elapsed from the confrontation to the launch (I choose these points as the emergence from The Nexus later to the point when everything is hopeless, respectively), is fifty seconds. When Kirk confronts him after the entire bit in The Nexus, it's actually two minutes and ten seconds before Soran cloaks the missile, and another forty before is launches again after it's been uncloaked.
Corrected entry: When Worf tells Riker the Romulans were looking for Trilithium on the station, Riker acts as if he never heard of it before, and Worf explains that it is an experimental compound that the Romulans were working on. However, in the Next Generation episode, "Starship Mine", terrorists steal Trilithium resin from the warp engines to sell as a weapon, and Picard seems to know a great deal about it.
Corrected entry: At the very beginning of the movie, we see a bottle of champagne flying in space and crashing upon the hull of the Enterprise-B. Champagne is squirting around. Well, as Khan said, it's very cold in space. The champagne should be frozen and be shattered into little pieces.
Corrected entry: When Worf, Riker, and Picard are discussing shooting down Soren's missile, Worf say that the missile would take 11 seconds to reach the sun, while locking on to it could take between 8 and 15 seconds. Riker says, "That's a pretty big margin for error," and Picard replies, "Much too big." Of course, the bigger the margin of error for something is, the more likely it is to be successfully accomplished. What they should have said was that it was a small margin for error.
Corrected entry: When Picard and Data are in Stellar Cartography, Picard asks Data to show him what system Nexus will come closest to. He shows him the Veridian system. The planet that Soran wants to be on has 3 moons. When you later see the shock wave hit the planet, destroying it, there are no moons shown in orbit. There are also no moons shown anytime Soran and Picard are on the planet.
Corrected entry: Soren launches the missile at the sun, the sun blows up, and the planet along with the Enterprise and its crew, are destroyed - the first time around. The movie shows the missile being launched, and a few seconds later (maybe 10) the star blows up - and this is seen in real time on the planet. Forgive me, but even if the missile made it to the star in a few seconds at warp speed, it would still take the light (and thus just about everything else, including gravitational effects) from the star to manifest itself on the planet! (It takes about 8 minutes for the light from our Sun to reach the Earth, for example).
Corrected entry: When the Enterprise crashes on Veridian III, the clear dome/skylight thing over the bridge is broken. What could possibly have done this? The dome certainly wasn't glass...it was made of the same stuff all of the other windows on the ship were made of, and none of them were broken....besides, in the crash shots, nothing happens to the Enterprise that could break that dome.
Corrected entry: Let's face it... The battle between the GALAXY-class ship and the TWELVE YR OLD BIRD OF PREY is really ridiculous. The Enterprise has no shields, so what? Does this hinder its weapons? The ship tries to escape and almost doesn´t fire. Why? The flagship of the Federation should be able easily to vaporize that old Klingon vessel with only one big salvo of torpedoes, or by firing phasers permanently (they did the same in the TNG-episode "Yesterday´s Enterprise"), no matter if they have shields or not
Corrected entry: When Picard and Kirk are fighting Soran to stop him from launching the rocket that will destroy the planet's sun, what was the big hurry? If they fail, they will be absorbed in the Nexus. Guinan, in the Nexus, said a person leaving the Nexus could time travel to any time period he/she wanted. They could simply keep leaving the Nexus to the same point in time until they destroyed the rocket.
Corrected entry: Why is Dr Crusher evacuating people from sick bay? It's in the saucer section,and everyone is being evacuated to the saucer section?
Corrected entry: When the Enterprise-B takes off at the beginning of the film its Captain clearly states they were just making a short trip around the block. That would probably mean not much further than the Solar system's edge - definitely not leaving the sector. But when soon afterwards they encounter the Nexus it is the only ship close enough to come to the rescue. What, so close to Earth? Shouldn't sector 001 be abundant with ships?
Corrected entry: In TNG, after the Enterprise defeated the Borg at Earth it became standard Starfleet procedure to modulate shield frequencies to prevent an enemy from matching weapon harmonics to shield frequencies (this allows a weapon to pass through the shields and directly strike the ship) In Generations, the Klingons acquired the Enterprises shield frequencies and matched their weapons to them, thus destroying the Enterprise-D.
Corrected entry: Riker seems to have forgotten some of his bridge officer training. Why did he go to all the trouble of evacuating the main section, with desperate running through corridors and teddy bears being lost on the way, separating the two sections and crashing the saucer into a planet, killing everyone. Did he forget the simple phrase "Eject warp core"?
Corrected entry: Guinan's race was destroyed by the Borg and rescued from the Nexus by the Enterprise-B, but they never must have mentioned it to the Federation because they were unprepared in the 24th century for their arrival.
Corrected entry: Soran needs to get to the Nexus. There is a planet that the Nexus will miss unless the sun is destroyed, in which case the Nexus will fly right through the planet. So Soran camps out on that planet and tries to destroy the sun. Before he blows up the sun, the nexus is seen flying through the sky BELOW the clouds. This is just not possible. On the enterprise, Picard and Data study holographic charts that show how huge the Nexus is, and how far away from any clouds the Nexus will miss the planet by.
Corrected entry: A small point, but all the way through the movie, the cast revert from the Next Gen' two piece uniform to the Deep space nine style jump suit. In one scene, Picard is wearing the old style, while Riker is talking to him dressed in the new style. Why are the senior officers wearing two different uniforms?
Corrected entry: The emotion chip in Generation is very large compared to the one shown in the TV episodes where Data first shows it and where he gets it from his brother. How could the chip have grown? Also Data's "father" build the chip specifically for him so why would it overload any part of Data?
Corrected entry: In Star Trek TNG's 4th or 5th season, they bring Scotty back for an episode under the pretence that he put himself into a continuous feedback loop in the transporter in order to survive a crash. The episode was called 'relics'. When Geordi, Worf, and Ryker beam down, the free him from the transporter. As soon as Riker says that he is from the starship Enterprise, Scotty immediately says 'the Enterprise. I'll bet old Jim Kirk himself dragged her out of mothballs to come looking for me'. But wait. In Star Trek Generations (the movie), Scotty was on the Enterprise B when (he believed) Jim was pulled out of the ship when the Nexus (which no-one understood, at the time) collided with the ship. So, as far as Scotty is aware, Jim is dead. So why the statement in Relics about Jim being around to come looking for Scotty?
Corrected entry: Wasn't the emotion chip originally inserted via Lore's mouth, not through the top of the skull? It looks a lot bigger in the movie, too.
