Corrected entry: In the scenes where Kirk's communicator goes off (like during dinner with the scientist lady) to simply inform him that Chekhov is about to beam to the ship, this completely goes against his first orders given before they landed that communicators should only be used in case of emergencies.


Correction: Uhura and Chekov were about to infiltrate a United States vessel in order to steal nuclear particles. Sounds like an emergency to me.

Corrected entry: The humpback whales are about to be returned to Alaska for release back into the wild. Dr. Gillian Taylor tells Kirk and Spock that Gracie is "very pregnant." In that event, the whales should be released in Hawaii instead of Alaska. Humpbacks give birth in warm, south Pacific waters during the winter and later migrate north for summer. (01:04:30 - 01:21:20)

Correction: A specific date or time of year is never mentioned, however the weather in San Francisco, as well as the clothing of its denizens suggests that it's not winter and may very well be the height of summer. If so, dropping the whales off in the Alaskan waters where they are more likely to encounter a pod to join is completely justified. Yes, whales typically birth in the warm Hawaiian waters over winter, but George and Gracie were in captivity. The situation could very well have altered their natural cycle.
