Corrected entry: Shinzon has been a slave in the mines his whole life with only the Remans as his family. So when exactly did he find out what the Romulans' plan was after it was decided he wasn't going to be used to replace Picard? The Remans would have no reason to know this information so that only leaves the Romulans, so what benefit does it give the Romulans to inform Shinzon of what his life was from, other than to give Shinzon a ridiculous excuse for revenge?
Corrected entry: The Scimitar's shields are still up when the Enterprise rams it. Shouldn't the Enterprise bounce off the Scimitar's shields instead of plowing straight through its forward hull?
Corrected entry: Why does Picard give up on destroying the ship when the auto-destruct fails? All they would need to do is drop the magnetic containment seals on the anti-matter pods manually. Then boom, instant warp core breach. Or take a phaser to the warp core. There's gotta be at least 20 ways to blow up the ship without the auto-destruct sequence. The auto-destruct is meant to be able to detonate the warp core without human intervention, giving the crew time to escape. The Captain could have sent the crew to the escape pods and blown the ship up manually.poehitman
Corrected entry: Having the entire senior bridge crew of the Federation flagship beam over into an unknown situation on a Romulan warship seems like an unfathomably stupid thing to do. It's supposed to be Starfleet regulation that a Starfleet captain not beam into an unknown and possibly hostile situation without an armed escort. Captain's aren't even supposed to go on away missions. Even though this was a diplomatic mission, the obvious thing would have been for Commander Riker to remain on board the Enterprise in command in case something happened to the away team. What if the away team was taken captive or killed? The only senior officer left on board was Lt. Commander LaForge.poehitman
Corrected entry: During the climactic battle because the Enterprise's transporter systems fail after Picard transports to the Scimitar. As a result Data has to jump through space, no other reinforcements can go to help and the bad guys cannot be transported off the ship. The Enterprise has several shuttle craft as well as a Captain's Yacht, each of which has their own completely independent transporter system, any of which could have been used instead.
Corrected entry: Do you think the filmmakers copied a little from Star Trek 2? Let's see. The captain's 'Nemesis' shows up in both episodes with pretty much the ultimate doomsday weapon. The second most beloved crew member - the most logical one at that - sacrifices himself to save the entire ship (and possibly the Earth itself). The logical crew member also just happened to implant all of his memories to another person before he sacrificed himself.
Corrected entry: Data sacrifices himself at the end to save Picard and the crew. In the final episode, "All Good Things" where Picard keeps going back and forth through time, Data is in the future era where Picard is an Ambassador/old man. Unless B-4 actually becomes Data (which can be determined by the singing), Data should not exist in those sequences of "All Good Things"Sebastian Kaldwell
Corrected entry: If we are to believe Picard's comment that Doctor Soong was being whimsical in naming the prototype android "B-4," then we must accept that Doctor Soong had some foreknowledge of the future - he had to have known it would work and he would be constructing other androids. It's akin to finding a coin stamped "100 B.C."JC Fernandez
Corrected entry: In the scene where Deanna Troi uses her telepathic ability to find the Scimitar, she has her hand on Worf's. You notice she is only wearing one ring on her wedding finger. In a later scene where Picard orders her to ram the Scimitar, it is clear she is wearing several on her finger. When did she have time to get them? (01:21:30 - 01:28:10)
Corrected entry: During the shot of the Enterprise-E tearing through the shuttlebay on the Reman Warbird, you can see a Reman who gets crushed between two Scorpion class shuttles on the centre-right as they collide. However, when that debris clears, the Reman is nowhere to be seen. (01:28:50)
Corrected entry: When Dr. Crusher is explaining to Picard about Shinzon's aging process, she explains about temporal RNA. But a few seconds later, watch her mouth as she says RNA - the voice over says DNA. (01:04:00)
Corrected entry: Why would the Remans chose to name their battleship 'Scimitar' after a Terran weapon? Even though Shinzon was cloned from Picard's DNA, he does not seem to have Picard's memories.
Corrected entry: When Shinzon begins to descend the staircase in the meeting chamber in which he first meets the away team, he raises the light level, causing the Viceroy to step back into the shadows, because Remans are sensitive to light. But when the meeting is over, the Viceroy walks back up the steps with Shinzon before Shinzon tells the computer to lower the light level again, with no ill effects. It actually appears that the light had already been lowered, and didn't change again after Shinzon's order. (00:33:20)
Corrected entry: Data and Picard escape the Scimitar aboard the hijacked scorpion and then were beamed aboard the Enterprise. Shortly after this, Data is speaking to B-4. How did B-4 get aboard the Enterprise?
Corrected entry: When Picard enters the bridge of the Scimitar, he hits a Reman with his Phaser rifle. The Reman drops and Picard sees that the rifle is broken from the impact. In "Insurrection" we saw Worf hit a metal probe with a similar rifle, and his rifle remained intact. Apparently weapons of the future are somewhat weaker then ours and while they can easily withstand the impact with a metal probe, the impact on a Reman skull is too much and it breaks.
Continuity mistake: In the latter half of the movie, Picard looks at a picture of himself from his days as a Starfleet Academy cadet while Beverly looks on too. This picture is actually the actor Tom Hardy (Shinzon, Picard's clone) and he appears with a completely bald/shaved head. Showing Picard bald as a cadet completely contradicts the TNG series. In the TNG episode 'Tapestry', a flashback set in 2327 (the year Picard graduated from the Academy), Picard is shown with a full head of hair. Also, in the TNG episode 'Violations', a flashback set in 2354 shows Picard with a partial head of hair when he takes Beverly to see her dead husband Jack's body. (00:46:25)
