Re: Sybok's magically appearing Followers

You can see the followers sitting in the background here. Watching this shot in motion I count about 4 or 5 people sitting down, and there's a shadow that could be more followers sitting opposite. A few seconds earlier though there's clearly no-one on the other side of the shuttle when Kirk etc are all wandering about the back.

Re: Sybok's magically appearing Followers

If Vulcans have eternal souls that can be stored inside someone else's mind for the trip back to Vulcan to resurrect the recently departed, I see no reason why a bunch of extras.... I mean Sybok's followers.... can't fit into that shuttle/magically appear out of thin air.

It's all a function of the Plot Hole, anyway. And we all know how gigantic the Plot Hole was in Star Trek V.

Re: Sybok's magically appearing Followers

Shatner was warned by cast and crew members that he had the deck numbers listed in the reverse...and he didn't listen...he didn't listen!

So it doesn't surprise me you found another continunity error in the film.

Hey, it's not impossible. In high school, we crammed 12 people into a '65 VW Beetle.

So it turns out they DID show his followers during the flight up--just not in every shot from every angle.

Maybe someone should watch the scene carefully before proclaiming it a fact and starting a thread.

My thoughts exactly—"there is no spoon." The missing disciples are not physically there. Only their "katras" came along on the journey.

2 Pages of discussion to get one post showing 2 maybe 3 of Sybok's followers doesn't account for 8 or 9 of his followers walking out of the shuttle.

Besides, the rest of the discussion is pretty interesting and/or funny.

Starfleet shuttlecraft (and shuttlebays) are quite clearly based on Time Lord Tech.
