* PlotHole: After Geordi is abducted and subsequently rescued, Dr. Crusher mentions removing a nanoprobe from him, which is literally the first and last time this has ever been mentioned. It's an inexplicably-retained artifact of Soren torturing Geordi for information, the nanoprobe being used to stop his heart (hence the "his ''heart'' just wasn't in it" line from Soren). It's retained in the novelization.

** After being given an emotion chip, Data says he now gets a joke Geordi told him off screen during their very first mission together. [[OrphanedPunchline We never hear the whole joke, but it apparently involved a Ferengi in a gorilla suit]]. This is strange, since the Federation didn't really know anything about the Ferengi until some time after that mission. They had met them at least twice before, but never learned who they were in those encounters.

* ArtisticLicensePhysics: Soren's plan to divert the Nexus makes sense at first, but promptly falls apart later. In order to actually get inside, he has to destroy the Veridian star so the Nexus hits the planet instead of a near-miss. Problem is, the timing of this is such that there would be no appreciable change in gravity since the sun is still largely intact and thus a massive gravitational body. The Nexus suddenly altering course to hit the planet would never happen. It would have made more sense to destroy the star then have the Nexus hit a planet in another solar system.
** The effects of the destruction of the Veridian star are observed far too quickly on the planet; due to the speed of light, it should take several minutes for the missile's detonation to be visible on the planet, rather than only a few seconds. In a similar vein, the gravitational effects propagate far too quickly as well.

** Back in "[[Recap/StarTrekTheNextGenerationS6E24S7E1Descent Descent]]", Data reasons against trying to install the emotion chip because in part he hates having placed his friend Geordi in danger while under it's influence. In this movie, he elects to install the chip, only for it to malfunction and for him to find himself paralysed by fear while Geordi gets beaten up and kidnapped by Soren on the observatory, proving his initial fears correct and leaving him feeling guilty.

* AbsenteeActor
** They couldn't get Creator/LeonardNimoy or Creator/DeForestKelley to return as Spock and Bones for the opening scene, so Kirk is instead accompanied by Scotty and Chekov. As a result, Chekov seems to be acting in the capacity of a doctor when they pick up the refugees and Scotty calls Kirk "Jim".
** In the alternate opening scene, Kirk boasts about his precision skydiving. Scotty 'helpfully' announces that Kirk was off by a few meters. Definitely a Spock line.


Added DiffLines:

* RealLifeWritesThePlot: The ''Enterprise''-D is destroyed and the bridge is thoroughly trashed because the models and sets were built for television and didn't have the necessary amount of detail to look good on movie screens as well as the fact that that six-foot model of the ship was an unwieldy monstrosity. The producers wanted to be able to start from scratch should they [[Film/StarTrekFirstContact get another movie]].

** The ''Next Gen'' portion of the movie takes place 78 years after the launching of the ''Enterprise B'' -- there were 78 original aired episodes of ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' (counting its sole two part story as one episode).

The ''Next Generation'' is said in the series bible to start 78 years after the original series era (''Star Trek IV'', the latest film at the time is set in 2286. Next Gen begins in 2364).

* ContinuitySnarl: This film establishes that Kirk died (at least presumably) in 2293 during the launch of the Enterprise-B. However, in the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "Relics," in which Scotty is rescued from being trapped inside a transporter buffer for 75 years, Scotty believes Kirk to still be alive even though from his point of view, he witnessed Kirk's death only one year earlier.
