Continuity mistake: When Capt. Picard, Data, and Anij are going to the holoship, they start off from the landing dock with (facing them) Data on the left, Capt. Picard on the right and Anij sitting. This is all well and good but after Data opens the door to the holoship, they magically switch places. (00:33:25)

Continuity mistake: Picard has a cut on the right side of his head in the scene where he, Worf and Gallatin are on the Son'a bridge. It is most visible when he says to Gallatin "Take us into position". After Picard takes the rifle from Worf and Gallatin says "We're approaching the collector", the cut on Picard's head is gone. After he has beamed over to the collector, the cut is back and is bleeding a lot more than it did before.

Revealing mistake: When the villagers are running from the attack on their village, they run across a bridge that gets blown up. If you look, you can see that just as it explodes, several people change the direction they are running so as they can plunge dramatically into the water. (00:55:40)

Trivia: In the end credits, an actor is credited as playing Young Ruafo. There are no scenes in the film which this character appears, this is a scene cut from the film, but they forgot to erase the credit. The explanation is that young Ruafo was filmed in the original Insurrection ending, before producers decided on a different (more action based) death for Ruafo and so had him burn on the exploding ship.

Chosen answer: A briar patch is basically a thorn bush. For insight as to what Riker meant when he said, "Let's use this briar patch the way Brehr Rabbit did," Take a look at http://www.otmfan.com/html/brertar.htm.

Answer: The reference is from Disney's Song of the South. A group of children listen to a old man's tall tales of a dumb Rabbit and Bear.
