Visible crew/equipment: On the Enterprise-D bridge, when the ship is hit and crewmen go flying, you can see one man go over the bridge railing backward. Twice, from different angles. When he lands the second time, the edge of a blue pad to cushion his fall pops up into the bottom of the shot. (00:16:05)
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. (01:20:35)
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.
