Continuity mistake: When Fred is giving Guy the "comic relief" pep talk, his left hand is on the left side of Guy's chest, but then the view changes to Guy's right side and Fred's left hand is now on the right side of Guy's chest, where it remains until Fred turns Guy and they walk out of the scene.

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.

Continuity mistake: Sarris' lieutenant Lathe is in two places at once during the siege of the Protector. He is seen in the atmosphere control room when the rock monster is beamed in and presumably dies later. A few moments later, he is on board Sarris' ship informing him that the crew has escaped custody.

Gwen DeMarco: Let's get out of here before one of those things kills Guy.

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 film's trailer, I saw several scenes and special effects that were not in the final cut. Does anyone know about these shots? I am assuming they were cut close to the films release to cut back on time.

Answer: There didn't seem to be any special f/x that were in the trailer that weren't included in the film itself. The only shots that were certainly not in the film was the opening shot that shows the aliens watching one of the Galaxy quest shows and when the narrator introduces Sigourney Weaver where she is showing off her chest (which is a deleted scene on the DVD). Your explanation of why they are not there is the most likely reason they were cut.
