Continuity mistake: When Picard, Worf, and Hawk step onto the saucer's hull, the camera pans up from the edge showing the path to the deflector (the point at which Picard says "Let's go"). At this point all of the window lights are illuminated on the angled part of the saucer. When it cuts to the wide shot of the hull and the trio having taken half a dozen steps toward the deflector, only the nearest two window lights are illuminated on the angled part of the saucer. Clearly a different model as the aztecing is different, shapes of the hull are different and there is a recess around the yellow RCS thruster in the latter shot. (01:01:10)
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Picard, Worf and Hawk are outside the ship and want to separate the transmitter dish from the hull, Picard must move a kind of tube out of an console and must turn it from a low to a high position. In one shot the tube is in the high position, in the next shot it is in the low position and then Picard pulls it out and turns it in the high position. (01:06:40 - 01:10:35)
Trivia: I was reading through some of the entries concerning the Borg in the Star Trek Encyclopedia, and came upon a comment they had about Wolf 359 - it's the name of an actual star in space, it makes up part of the Constellation Leo. It's also the site of the first major fleet battle between StarFleet and the Borg. Take your mind back to the scene where Zef and Lily first walk out of that bar, and Lily sees a speck of light that is actually the Borg Sphere, and asks Zef what it is. He replies "That, my dear, is the Constellation Leo". Now, obviously he didn't see what she was pointing out the first time around, but we could probably assume that from their point of view the sphere was in the general area that the constellation occupies in the night sky. Nice coincidence that the first attack on Earth by the Borg came from the same direction as the major battle between Starfleet and the Borg.
