Corrected entry: While playing the game, Alex repeatedly shoots down the same group of Kodan fighters - the same in-game shots are repeated. The easiest to spot are two fighters that come from the left side and are destroyed simultaneously.

Correction: In a video game, there is nothing wrong with using the same action scenes (especially in one of that vintage). Also, since the action scenes are being reused in game, there is nothing to say Alex couldn't be shooting the fighters in the same manner. Good gamers get in a rhythm.

Corrected entry: When Alex Rogan is first taken to Rylos he is given a device that allows him to understand all the various aliens he encounters on his adventures. However, at the end of the film when Alex and his alien pilot, Grig, return to earth Grig carries on conversations in english with all the residents at Alex's trailer park.

Correction: When Centari came to earth he spoke English to Alex just fine without a translator. He and Grig worked together on Rylos so its likely he spoke English too.

When the Starcar lands for the second time, there is a shot where the car comes to a stop in front of the camera. In this shot, the wooden rafters of the sound stage can be seen. (Noted in the director's commentary).



In the scene where Alex first meets Centari and climbs into the Starcar, notice how Alex's hair looks natural as he stands outside the car. After he gets in and asks "What are you doing?", notice how his hair looks totally different, almost as if it is burnt or something. The actor had become very ill and had to shoot certain scenes after he got sick. He wore a wig, which explains why during certain parts of the film, he looks pale and his hair looks burnt. You can also notice the wig in the scene when the "Beta" unit rides in a truck and laughs his head off to have a good time.
