Corrected entry: When the Enterprise arrives in Vulcan space, there is much debris floating around from the previous ships that were destroyed. The Enterprise tries to duck under a large piece, but it scrapes the top of one of the nacelles, knocking many panels off. In later scenes the damage has disappeared.
Corrected entry: When the captain of the U.S.S. Kelvin is headed to his shuttle, the turbo lift in which he is riding descends, and he exits to the shuttle bay [this is visible as an exterior panning shot]. However, the shuttle bay is on a pylon above the saucer section, so the lift should enter from below, not above.
Corrected entry: The singularity that consumed Planet Vulcan simply closed on itself, yet the singularities that consumed the Romulus sun and Nero's Narada ship, each with different amounts of red matter used, either stay open to pull the Narada and Jellyfish in, or tries to pull in the Enterprise.beyondthetech
Corrected entry: Kirk and Scotty are able to transport from Delta Vega to the Enterprise, despite it being many hours after the Enterprise had departed the planet at high warp to rendezvous with the rest of the fleet (and possibly through the ship's shields). Spock explains that Scotty later invents the ability to transport to and from ships at warp speed, but this does not account for the distance they are traveling.
Corrected entry: In the scene showing the drill first attacking Vulcan (before Amanda comes out and sees it) the shot is showing a clear blue sky around the upper parts of the drill. Vulcan has been established as having an orange/brown tint to both the planet and its atmosphere. No amount of "alternate reality" explanation works here.
Corrected entry: Throughout the movie, it is mentioned that Nero's drill prevents sensors and communication. It prevents the Enterprise (and other Starfleet ships) from detecting Nero's ship at Vulcan and later prevents them from contacting Earth to call for reinforcements. However, when the Enterprise is en route to Vulcan, during his announcement to the crew, Chekov says that they received a distress call from Vulcan saying that they were experiencing extreme seismic activity (which we later learn is caused by the drill) which would have been impossible if communications were 'jammed' by the drilling.
Corrected entry: In the scene following young Spock's fight with the other Vulcan children, after his father approaches him, the shot is a close up of Spock's head, in which you can see light passing though his right ear lobe from the window behind him, however, the light is reddish, since Vulcan blood is green, as proven by the green blood on his lip in the same shot, the light passing though his ear lobe should be greenish, not red.

Corrected entry: After encountering the Narada, the Kelvin receives a transmission from one of Nero's crewmembers instructing the Captain to fly over. Remember, the Kelvin pre-dates the divergence in the timeline, and in the prime universe, no human or Romulan had seen the other until more than 30 years later. So the Kelvin should have assumed the man was a Vulcan and asked questions accordingly, such as, "If you're Vulcan, why attack us?"Vader47000
Corrected entry: At 13:19 one question to a Vulcan student was about the volume of the sphere. He answers 4/3*pi*r^2 instead of ^3 in the Hungarian version. (00:13:15)
Corrected entry: Every time someone is beamed to and from the Enterprise, they appear at their destination in the body position they were in when they were transported. But at the film's conclusion, Spock is beamed from a sitting position in the pilot's chair of his craft, and re-appears on the Enterprise's transporter pad standing up.
Corrected entry: When George Kirk is flying the Kelvin into the Romulan mining ship, the initial time to impact reported vs. the time it took to fly into the Romulan mining ship was not quite in sync. George and Winona Kirk chat a little longer than time allowed in the naming of James T. Kirk.movies00
Corrected entry: In the beginning of the movie after Spock beats up the bully, there is a scene with his father. In the first shots in that scene, you can see sunlight shining through his ear. His inner-ear lights up a bright red. The red comes from the blood in your veins going through your ear. However, it is well known and also seen in the scene (blood on his lip) that Spock's blood is green. So shouldn't his ear light up as bright green? (00:14:40)lionhead
Corrected entry: Chekhov is Russian and has a Russian accent. but actually, in the Russian language there is no 'W' sound and there IS a 'V' sound so his 'wessels' actually should have been 'vessels.'
