Corrected entry: On the Narada attack on Vulcan, immediately after the red matter bomb enters the hole previously drilled, Kirk reports this to the Enterprise. In that shot, there is a shockwave seen leaving the hole as if the bomb had detonated, but considering the hole was drilled to the planet's core, it would take (substantially) longer for the bomb to reach Vulcan's core. If the bomb was an adapted torpedo and the shockwave its thruster kick-starting, it doesn't make much sense to have used it first as a drop bomb and then a torpedo (should have been fired, not "dropped") - note that the shockwave appears seconds after entry; plus the fact that the planet's interior is liquid magma, so making a "hole" to its core doesn't make sense since it would be instantly closed.
Corrected entry: Kirk is promoted to Captain in an auditorium filled with the Academy cadets that were present at his trial for cheating on the Kobayashi Maru. The faces should almost all be different - the only surviving cadets from the trial would be the ones who were assigned to the Enterprise; all the others were killed in the battle with the Narada.BocaDavie
Corrected entry: The view of Saturn's rings from Titan's atmosphere looks impressive, but from Titan's orbit the rings always appear nearly edge-on. (01:37:00)
Corrected entry: In his attempt to rescue the Vulcan leadership, Spock beams down to the planet, then has to run up the side of a mountain to reach the sacred cave. Later we see there is plenty of room just outside the cave entrance to stand to be beamed out. Why couldn't Spock just beam to the mouth of the cave and save himself the precious time of having to run up the mountain?Vader47000
Corrected entry: Despite the Kelvin supposedly existing in the pre-Nero Prime universe, it displays design characteristics more in line with the Abrams rebooted universe concept, such as a window on the bridge instead of a viewscreen, an irregular warp nacelle configuration and an engineering section that looks like a factory.Vader47000
Corrected entry: The Kelvin computer tells George Kirk that the auto-pilot is disabled, leading him to decide to remain behind. He fires the ship's weapons to protect the escaping shuttles. Once the shuttles are safe, the status display shows that weapons are offline. Kirk sets a collision course and then sits in the captain's chair for a couple of minutes and does nothing else but talk to his wife and await his death. If there's no auto-pilot, how did he program the collision course and why would the computer follow it? Shouldn't he have to be at the helm flying the ship manually? And if not, why isn't he trying to get to an escape pod? According to the readout, he has at least a minute.Vader47000
Corrected entry: Nothing can escape a Black Hole once it crosses into its Event Horizon (the point of no return). Even with warp drive engines, the energy required to escape a Black Hole is infinite and the Enterprise/Narada would have run out of power before being able to escape. Not only that, but they would have been shredded by the gravity shearing effects.
Corrected entry: When Spock and Kirk first meet Scotty, after Spock explains how Scotty has not yet discovered trans-warp beaming, the camera shows Scotty from the front and Spock and Kirk from the back. When he asks "Are you from the future?" Kirk responds "Yeah, he is, I'm not," however, if you look closely Kirk does not move his jaw with what he's saying.
Corrected entry: When Kirk lands on the Narada's drilling platform over Vulcan, he pulls off his helmet and tosses it aside before charging the Romulan who emerges from the drill. He fights barehanded and has his phaser knocked over the edge. The next shot from Sulu's viewpoint shows Kirk hitting both Romulans with his helmet somehow back in his hands.
Corrected entry: When the ships leave Earth for Vulcan, we can see a whole string of them as they gain altitude in Earth's atmosphere to go to their respective starships. Starfleet is in San Francisco, but the transport/crew ships themselves are coming much further south and east than that. Also, when Nero targets Earth with his drill, we can see the Alaska panhandle in the upper right of the screen. However, his computer indicates that San Francisco is located much further southwest, near the Hawaiian Islands.
Corrected entry: Just after Sulu volunteers for the away team, there is a beauty shot of the Enterprise, showing the "bridge window" and most of the primary ship hull. Unfortunately, the "NCC-1701" text on the hull is facing the wrong way. In all other shots of the ship, the text faces away from the bridge. In this shot it is facing towards the bridge.
