Trivia: Dan Aykroyd's character mentions in the movie that he feels the NASA moon landings were all hoaxed. Years later he appeared in a UFO documentary that also discussed this same theory.

Factual error: In the scene where Redford's character enters through the secured entrance with the stolen key-card, it shows a printer printing the time he entered. Then after his walking and getting up to the top floor and trying to get past the voice verification system and having to do it twice, they show the same printer printing the time he passed that checkpoint, and it was only one minute later than the previous time. Even though seconds are not shown, all of these actions must surely have taken longer than 1 minute and 59 seconds.

Question: In the scene where the crew exits the ship via the retractable doorway and gets seen by the garbage men, they had enough power to beam out but decided to walk out regardless, and risk being seen. Yet every other time they beamed in and out of the ship, so why not that particular time? Furthermore, why would the garbage men dismiss it so easily and not report it or return again later.

Chosen answer: There's no reason given, but it might have something to do with the fact that all of them are leaving the ship at the same time. It may be necessary for someone to remain on board to beam them in and out, as opposed to manually opening and closing the hatch from the outside. Being as this is a Klingon ship, the technology does not exactly work the same as their own. As to the garbage collectors, they did not report seeing anything for fear of no one believing them, being ridiculed, and possibly losing their jobs. They may also simply not believe what they are seeing.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Spock gets confronted after swimming with the whales: you can easily see before he puts on a robe, that his clothes are completely dry, yet he had just been swimming in the shot a moment earlier.
