Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan - I Thought This Planet Was Uninhabetid
At the end of the movie when they are showing the jungle shots of the Genesis Planet. Look closely in the lower left hand corner of the screen. You can see a freeway complete with cars between the bushes!

Since when do rivers have stuff flowing in two directions?

NO NO NO! This is a brook, river, or some other form of moving water. You need a better TV or a pair of glasses.

Has anyone noticed that Checkov arrived in the Grissom ( which was a Science Research vessel). I am under the impression that all Starships had detailed stellar maps for navigational purposes. A Science vessel would have had detailed system maps as well. Since the Ceti Alpha system had been mapped before Kirk deposited Khan and crew on Ceti Alpha V, there were already detailed records of this system's planetary bodies. Even Spock mentioned that the fifth planet had an earth type atmosphere and Kirk made mention that it was primitive and harsh but should be a challenge for Khan's people. My point is...How could a Science vessel with detailed system maps not notice that one planet was missing? Wouldn't that fact alone give rise to concern or curiousity? Not much of a Science Research vessel if they don't notice alterations in their own details about the system they are in. I think this is a slip up or more likely a mistake. Does anyone know if this has been addressed in any other materials and if so where. Thanks

Look at it again.. and then when the shot moves look at the perspective you are seeing it at. If it was a freeway, the cars would be 2 inches.. that is a stream. Those last scenes were shot in the San Fran Botanical Gardens, no highways are around there..

planet distruction has been noted in startrek vi, since the planet changed its rotation around its sun, and therefore, when the science vessel returned, they may have noted a planet missing, but due to the change in positioning of planets, they could easily made the mistake of not knowing that which planet was witch

I think that this is a river as well. Why in the hell would a freeway be on genesis?
