** Probably unimportant things, like the kitchen stoves. He was just pulling out plugs at random - if one of them happened to be for something important (and obvious, such as the lights or artificial gravity), he would just plug it back in and try another.



** He says that he lost his ''primary'' memory circuit...So maybe before Flint pulled it, he uploaded his other memories not concerning the booby traps to a secondary memory circuit he had inside him (most likely very quickly and haphazardly, which is why he can only remember bits and pieces of everything later on), and that was where his future memories were stored until Jim reinstalled his primary one.

* Why are Jim and his mother (and father) the only human characters in the film? Dr. Doppler, Amelia, Silver, Scroop, the other crew members, and the people in the inn and at the spaceport all seem to be aliens - where did Jim's family come from? Are they the last of their kind?

* B.E.N states the Flint pulled out his memory chip and as a result B.E.N has a poor memory. The question is how could B.E.N have any memory of the past without his memory unit (he mentions remembering Flint's treasure being buried in the center of something and the door opening and closing; memories that would've been stored in his memory chip... which he didn't have at the time)? Also, how could B.E.N have formed any new memories such as remembering where his new home was?

* When they went to the ship to disable the Cannons, B.E.N did so with difficulty. After the fight with Scroop, B.E.N emreges wrapped in sparking wire and declaring the cannons disabled. What else B.E.N may have disabled? (though maybe this should go in FridgeLogic or FridgeHorror)

** Though not addressed in the movie, Morph is prone to acting out when he shouldn't such as stealing the map from Jim after the mutiny despite Jim's protests. On that note, there's also the matter of Morph's intelligence. Given his acting out and comparison to an animal (whenever he talks its reminiscent of a parrot talking), it's unlikely he would've understood the task (fly to the green ball and hit the one button shaped like a crescent moon among many other buttons). That's not factoring in Morph panicking on the way (such as his terror when they were caught up in the supernova and the black hole). There's also, as stated above, the fact that Jim on a rocket-surfer was faster.

** I don't see why he couldn't, really...He can turn himself into a miniature pie and throw himself at someone - what's wrong with Jim or Silver lobbing him down off the ship and telling him just to poke somewhere on the glowing green globe that was right nearby? It wouldn't even need to be their home planet that he selected; at that point, in the face of a giant explosion, practically ''anywhere'' would've been optimal.

** Morph couldn't have gotten there fast enough. Plus it's questionable if he's capable of handling a task that specific.

** Also, the map could be something like a puzzle cube, where once you solve it and it displays the map, you're then free to scramble the different parts however you please - if we're to assume Jim did this after opening the map the first time, it makes sense that he would've been the best person to do it again, and also allows him to use this as leverage.
