Star Trek: Generations mistake picture

Revealing mistake: As Worf climbs up the side of the 19th century ship, you can see that his pants legs are red in front. (The paint on the ship wasn't dry when they filmed it.). (00:21:50)

Other mistake: If you watch the holodeck doors as Picard leaves the holodeck after hearing the bad news, you can see that the holodeck doors seem to be crudely painted with a brush and you can see the large brush marks. (00:24:00)

Star Trek: Generations mistake picture

Revealing mistake: Roads are visible in the background during the climatic fight sequence on Veridia III, even though the planet is uninhabited. (01:40:35)

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.

Kirk: I'll get it. You go for the launcher.

Picard: Good luck, Captain!

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.

More trivia for Star Trek: Generations

Question: Tim Russ' (brief appearance) is listed on IMDB as "Enterprise-B Tactical Lieutenant". I'm not enough of a Trekkie to know - would it be feasible for him to be Tuvok? How long is it supposed to be in the Star Trek universe between this film and Voyager? Do Vulcans live that long?

Answer: Vulcans do live that long (300+ years), but it is not Tuvok. For one, his ears and eyebrows are human, not Vulcan, for another, Voyager tells us he left Starfleet for over 40 years shortly after the Khitomer conference, which was before Enterprise-B entered service.
