Continuity mistake: When the 4 "nerds" first approach the captain to talk about their supposed problem the girl is standing in a different place than when they cut back. In a later scene the girl is in this position and I believe they reshot the earlier scene while they were doing the later scene. (00:07:30)

Continuity mistake: During the opening sequence of Alexander storming out of the back rooms, you can see Tommy help keep him there. However within the next shot as they Call Gwen to the stage, you can see Tommy and the whole crew out on stage but Alexander and the Commander are still having the same dialogue. (00:04:10 - 00:05:00)

Continuity mistake: When they're flying down to the planet, Guy is upset because he doesn't have a last name. He asks Jason, "What's my last name?" and Jason doesn't know. In the very next scene, Jason addresses Guy by his last name, Fleegman. (00:55:00)

Suggested correction: Guy is saying that his character doesn't have a last name, because his character dies off quickly and has no need for one, so he thinks he's in actual danger.

Tommy Webber: Go for the mouth, the throat, his vulnerable spots!
Jason Nesmith: It's a rock! It doesn't have any vulnerable spots!
Guy Fleegman: I know! You construct a weapon. Look around, can you form some sort of rudimentary lathe?

Trivia: In interesting contrast to Guy's frequent ranting about how he, as the only unnamed character, will be the first to die, in the sequence where Sarris enters the command deck and shoots everyone, Guy is the only crewmember who is NOT shown getting shot.

Question: In the beginning of the movie, Dane attempts to flee from the convention but is stopped by Nesmith, who says "the show must go on". Dane looks furiously at Nesmith for a second and then makes his appearance on stage after all. Can anybody explain to me why Nesmith's line makes Dane change his mind?

Answer: Dane is a classically trained stage actor from England. On the stage they have the saying "The show must go on". i.e. hundreds of people have payed for tickets to see the play, so the thespians go on stage to do the best job they can. Nesmith is reminding Dane of this as Dane considers it a stage tradition that he doesn't want to break.
