Star Trek: Generations

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.

Deliberate mistake: After the trilithium missile hits the sun, it is shown going out in real time from Veridian III. As the planet is relatively earth-like, it is several light-minutes away from the sun. The filmmakers wanted it to be obvious that the missile was successful, so they ignored the speed of light.
