** Remember the Dominion was still a lingering threat, and the Romulans could been waiting for an opportunity like this to start trouble. As powerful as the Enterprise is, it's still only one ship to the many already gathered yet it'd be sufficient to provide security on the Federation borders.

** The lightning/plasma disc/plate on the Borg alcove, essential component of Borg technology related to the Borg's regeneration cycle and connection to the Borg hive mind, or cheap novelty item for your home?

(Something of an inversion in that, while the "Luminglas" brand of crackle-tube widget existed prior to the film and the ones used in ''First Contact'' were bought off the shelf, it was their exposure in ''First Contact'' that made them popular as a novelty item, in sort of a proto-ColbertBump effect.)

** Although, it doesn't justify keeping one of the most powerful ships in the fleet out studying comets along the Neutral Zone while Earth itself is threatened by the greatest enemy the Federation has faced - One wonders why they didn't just recommend Riker take command, given that he was in command of the ''Enterprise-D'' during the last Borg invasion.

* SpecialEffectsFailure: The Earth that Picard shows to Lily looks rather unconvincing, and it's all the more jarring given how high the standard of the special effects in general is.
** TruthInTelevision: At that height, ostensibly the Lagrange Point, with no clouds, that's ''precisely'' what the Earth looks like.
** So SpecialEffectsFailure is really a case of RealityIsUnrealistic.
** Who else noticed that they completely forgot New Zealand?
*** Maybe it was destroyed in World War III.
** Earth's atmosphere looks oddly clear considering that the movie takes place during the post-atomic horror period of human history, in which TNG established there were multiple nuclear winters as a result of World War III and minor nuclear exchanges in the years afterward.

** The Earth's atmosphere looks pretty clear for it being only ten years after a global nuclear exchange. So much for nuclear winter.

* JerkassHasAPoint: Starfleet Command is portrayed as incompetent for not allowing Picard to lead the defense against the Borg invasion and indeed keeping him as far away from the battle as possible. However, considering what we see happen to Picard over the course of the movie, it's hard to say they were wrong. Having your battlefield commander undergo SanitySlippage in the midst of an enemy blitzkrieg is a pretty good argument for wanting Admiral Hayes to lead instead.
