Continuity mistake: Admiral Marcus' ship "The Vengeance" comes out of warp and immediately appears to be right beside the Enterprise. The top of the ship even goes over the roof of the Enterprise to prove it. Yet from an immediate side angle of the two ships, the distance between the two ships has increased noticeably and the Enterprise is now facing towards the Vengeance.
Continuity mistake: In the bar, Pike meets up with Kirk to tell him that they gave him the Enterprise. When Pike tells Kirk that Spock has been reassigned to the Bradbury, Kirk pours liquor into his glass, nearly covering the big round ice cube. When Kirk lifts the glass from the bar, half of the liquor instantly disappears.
Continuity mistake: When Admiral Marcus' ship appears in front of the Enterprise after coming out of warp, a set of panels begins to close over the main deflector dish. In the next shot, when looking out of the Enterprise's viewscreen, the deflector dish is fully visible again.
Continuity mistake: As Kirk and Spock converge in the lobby of the Daystrom building, Spock greets Kirk with "Captain" and Kirk responds "Not anymore Spock, First Officer." There is a cut between "Not anymore" and "Spock." During the cut Spock moves from being in front of Kirk to behind him and the two have moved from the middle of the lobby, with the ramps visible 10 to 15 yards ahead of them to right beside the ramps.
Continuity mistake: After Harrison (Khan) has attacked the senior officers' meeting and Pike has died, the position of Pike's head on the cushion changes between shots. When Spock disconnects from the mind meld, the stitching on the cushion is above Pike's ears. When Kirk checks for a pulse, the stitching is below Pike's ears. The angle of his head also changes.
Continuity mistake: After the Vengeance attacks the Enterprise and Scotty temporarily disables the Vengeance, Kirk and Spock head toward Sickbay. They pause in the corridor and have a brief exchange about "logic" and "gut feelings," with the camera cutting back and forth between Kirk and Spock. When the camera is on Kirk at first, the corridor behind him on his left is clear; when it cuts to Spock, a girl in a red engineering uniform with her hair in a bun and a glowing handheld device appears on Kirk's left and walks past, seemingly without noticing them. Camera cuts back to Kirk and the corridor is clear again. When the camera cuts back to Spock, the exact same girl with the hair bun and handheld device appears again on Kirk's left and walks past again, in the same direction as the first time, but this time looking over her right shoulder and into the camera. Camera quickly cuts back to Kirk and then to Spock, and now the corridor behind Spock is completely clear - the girl has vanished entirely.
