Other mistake: As the Veridian star is destroyed, Picard raises his hand to supposedly shield his eyes from the sun's light, but he is looking in the wrong direction; the sun is behind him, and there is no light on the rest of the front of his body.
During the final battle with the Klingon sisters, the Enterprise is forced to crash-land on the planet below. Meanwhile, Picard tries and fails to stop Soran from drawing the Nexus to the planet, which destroys the Enterprise and launches Picard into the Nexus. He meets up with Kirk and eventually convinces him to return to before the probe was launched. Picard stops the probe, Kirk is shot but keeps Soran from shooting Picard, and the Nexus passes by harmlessly. Kirk dies, and Data cries with worry over Spot, who is fine.
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.
