Did the original ending ever surface for this (the footage, I mean?)
That whole part where the Enterprise zooms back and beams up picard just in time, that's the reshot "new" ending isn't it?
Also, did the scene with Quark ever get off the cutting room floor also? And the one with the actor who plays Rom as a Trill security officer?
There's also an effects mistake in this film too.
When picard beams onto the collector, he's beaming from the Son'a ship he captured to the Son'a collector.
Why, then, is the transporter effect the standard Federation waterfall effect?
