Independence Day: Resurgence

Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie when the mothership takes off the central saucer section is in place, yet we saw the queen alien fly off in it earlier on.

Continuity mistake: Early in the film, as Jake and Charlie are towing a new weapon system to its destination on the Moon, we see Earth in the background, more than half illuminated by the Sun. Jake says they are 7 miles away and closing on their lunar destination (which should only take a matter of moments). A few moments later, as Jake and Charlie are still in approach, we see Earth in the background again, but it is now in a waning crescent, only 1/3 illuminated by the Sun. This would indicate over a week's passage of time.

Continuity mistake: When we first see Dr. Brakish Okun lying in bed the arm of the bed is up. Then just before he wakes up the arm is down. (00:19:45)

Question: How did Patricia hit The Harvester Queen's shield?

Answer: It appears she hit it enough times that it got too damaged to stay on.

Answer: This has always puzzled me about this film...the shields on the alien ships at times seem absolutely useless compared to the first film. I know that mankind had incorporated alien tech into its own but in 20 years you'd think the alien tech on ALL its vessels would be practically impenetrable...but when it suits the plot it's suddenly weak.

Upon entering an alien craft one of the characters even remarks that their technology has not advanced at all. And presumably there are different types of shield generators that react differently to different kinds of weapons that are fired at them.
