Goofs

In the first minute of the opening scene of the re-imagined version, as the digital Enterprise sails by the camera, the planet can be seen through the impulse engine port. It is a CGI oversight, where the appropriate graphic is missing and the planet imagery is bleeding through the missing picture. See more »
