Other mistake: When Scotty goes to the holodeck to visit the original Enterprise, the computer tells him there are 5 Federation vessels with that name. (NX-01 served before the founding of the Federation so this is technically correct.) Scotty specifies NCC-1701, "no A, B, C or D." The computer then tells him the program is ready. The computer should have asked him if he wanted pre or post refit NCC-1701. The ship we see in the Original Series was rebuilt/refit into the ship we see in The Motion Picture.Grumpy Scot
Other mistake: While down in the pit Geordi makes a couple of spikes to climb out with. When the phaser beam is melting the ore, the metal goes molten about two inches in front of the beam. Also, the spikes are rounded, like handles. The molds he made would have left a flat side.Movie Nut
Other mistake: One of the physical appearances Lal considers adopting is an Andorian female with green skin. In the Trek universe, Andorians invariably have blue skin (the Aenar are a variant of the Andorian race but are depicted with bluish-white skin, still not green). And while other humanoid races have been portrayed with different skin tones, there are some races that have only one skin hue. (ie, Andorians are always blue, Orions are always green, Ferengi are always light orange.) It is highly unlikely she or Data designed it with different skin as Data wants her to fit in, and Troi makes no mention of it.Grumpy Scot
Visible crew/equipment: In the scene in the cavern where Wesley fires his phaser to heat the rocks to keep him and Picard warm, Wesley's shadow is in the wrong place. The camera is in almost a direct line of sight between where the rocks are (which are supposed to be providing the light source) and Wesley with the cavern wall behind him. After Wesley fires his phaser and the room illuminates, his shadow should be either directly behind him or to the left of him, but his shadow appears to the right side of him. The only way his shadow would be there was if the light source was off camera a good distance to the left.poehitman
Plot hole: Why would the miners send a shuttle to get Captain Picard when the Enterprise has a compliment of shuttlecraft on board? Also, how could the Enterprise engineering team (led by Lt. Commander LaForge) miss that the thruster quad on the shuttle was near failure?poehitman
Continuity mistake: When Picard, Ro and the others arrive at the refugee camp to meet with Keeve Falor, the type of uniform top Ro is wearing has its zipper at the back in the center - with no seam whatsoever at the front. When she kneels down in front of the child, it has changed to the open-front jacket type, so Ro can touchingly give it to the child.Super Grover
