Continuity mistake: In the latter half of the movie, Picard looks at a picture of himself from his days as a Starfleet Academy cadet while Beverly looks on too. This picture is actually the actor Tom Hardy (Shinzon, Picard's clone) and he appears with a completely bald/shaved head. Showing Picard bald as a cadet completely contradicts the TNG series. In the TNG episode 'Tapestry', a flashback set in 2327 (the year Picard graduated from the Academy), Picard is shown with a full head of hair. Also, in the TNG episode 'Violations', a flashback set in 2354 shows Picard with a partial head of hair when he takes Beverly to see her dead husband Jack's body. (00:46:25)
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Picard and Data are about to board the Scorpion attack flyer, Picard throws his disruptor rifle to the ground. Yet just seconds later when the Scorpion is about to escape by blasting the entrance to the hangar bay open, no disruptor rifle is seen on the ground. (01:00:08)
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Picard and Shinzon are having dinner, one shot shows a wine glass with a little bit of blue liquid in it. The next shot of the same wine glass shows the glass more than half way full. (00:38:50)
Continuity mistake: Shinzon's outfit changes between shots near the end of the movie. When he is projected via hologram into Picard's ready room, and during the first half of the battle with the Romulan warbirds, Shinzon's shoulder pads are pointed. Halfway through the battle, the shoulder pads change to smaller, flat ones.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Data is downloading his info to B-4, when the camera sweeps to show Data, the yellow-green contact in his left eye is crooked. (00:23:40)
Continuity mistake: Near the end of the movie, Picard is toasting his crew with wine. In one scene he holds the wine glass by the stem, in the next shot he holds the wine glass by the cup. (01:43:40)
