Plot hole: Flash needs a device to communicate via telepathy and help on how to use it, yet Dale talks out loud and her voice reaches Flash without the use of any device or help at all.

Factual error: A meteorite zooming through the atmosphere would crash on the ground at a high speed and with a really high temperature, not like a cardboard orange-painted ball thrown from a couple meters away, as it happens in the movie.

Revealing mistake: When the movie starts, hot hail starts to fall, but in the close-ups it just falls on a tiny area on the ground, in the rest of the wide angles the hail is gone, it neither falls nor is seen on the ground.

Dr. Hans Zarkov: We are only interested in friendship. Why do you attack us?
The Emperor Ming: Why not? Pathetic earthlings. Hurling your bodies out into the void, without the slightest inkling of who or what is out here. If you had known anything about the true nature of the universe, anything at all, you would've hidden from it in terror.

Trivia: Max von Sydow's costume for the Emperor Ming weighed over 70 pounds and he could only stand in it for a few minutes at a time.
