Re: "If it appeared on screen, it's canon." THIS is canon?!?

What bothers me the most is having obvious errors appear on film, becoming canon (ST5 showing far too many decks in the turbolift escape scene is the worst)
Unless the Enterprise-A had, indeed, been put together by monkeys (as Scotty suspected) that scene can't possibly be canon for multiple known reasons
  • The numbering of the decks always starts at the top (Bridge) and then continues down, not the other way around
  • The Enterprise-A doesn't have that many decks
  • There are no (turbo lift) cars in that shaft, although we see both ends of the shaft
Obviously a set built for a never shot scene within the Earth Spacedock space station.
