Sybok's magically appearing Followers

I was just watching Star Trek V and I noticed something. As the shuttle leaves Nimbus III, you can see in the shuttle:

Kirk
Spock
McCoy
Uhura
Sulu
Sybok
Sybok's bald sidekick from the first scene of the movie
St. John Talbot (Terran Ambassador)
General Korrd (Klingon Ambassador)
Caithlin Dar (Romulan Ambassador)

And nobody else. I don't see anyone else on the shuttle as they approach the Enterprise.

Once they crash land in the shuttle bay, after everyone I've mentioned above has exited the shuttle, about 8 or 9 of Sybok's followers walk out of the shuttle behind everyone else.

Oh, those Federation shuttles. They're tricky...

Where were these people on the shuttle? Were they hiding under the floorboards? That's almost 20 people altogether that should have been in the shuttle. Did anyone else see Sybok's followers in the shuttle? Because I missed them.

Along with brainwashing, Sybok can magically turn his followers invisible, it seems.

They were kept in transporter suspension, obviously.

David Warner's Talbot character mentions that once they're aboard, they'll begin bringing the rest of their followers aboard.

Doesn't really answer your question, I know!

The Enterprise has more than one shuttle. When The 'Bok took over, he had his peeps shuttled up.

Re: Sybok's magically appearing Followers

Except that the moment the shuttle came aboard the ship then immediately warped away from the planet, AND the transporter wasn't working, so whatever was on the shuttle was it. Too bad, loyal followers left behind!

^ Exactly as the above.

The trouble with that of course, is that there isn't time enough for more than one shuttle to reach the Enterprise, before it went to warp to avoid the Bird of Prey's torpedo.

Re: Sybok's magically appearing Followers

Then it's a continuity error. Oh well. Thread over.

Re: Sybok's magically appearing Followers

Ah yes, in that case, never mind. It must have been a TARDIS shuttle, like those 16 that carried 800 survivors from the Kelvin in the last movie, or that tiny Maquis ship that somehow fitted Chakotay's entire crew in "Caretaker"

The Federation must have perfected clown car technology.

Re: Sybok's magically appearing Followers

...The funny thing is that this movie introduces a shuttle specifically tailored for moving a large number of troops. There's no logistical reason why Sybok's faithful disciples couldn't be aboard that craft.

That is, there's room for the troopers to sit on the fold-down side benches, out of sight of the camera that only follows the talking heads of the more central characters (or, the rare once, moves down to cover the seated Uhura and Sulu who in turn obscure the aft of the cabin with their upper bodies).

Sybok cleverly had his followers sneak aboard the Enterprise-A earlier - they were hiding out on Deck 78.

They were standing behind Shatner's ego.
