Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan - Wet Paint
In the first scene during the Kobayashi Maru simulation watch the wall to Savik's right when she is in command. There is a white piece of paper oddly taped to the wall there. It shows up about 3 times during the battle scene. When the simulation is over, however, and Kirk is addressing Savik on the simulated bridge, you can see that where the piece of paper was taped there is now a symbol. The letter "A" is above the symbol (you can see the bottom of the "A" during the battle but the rest of the symbol is under the piece of paper). That paper must have been a stencil that had the white paint applied to it but was not taken down before shooting the first part of the scene. Maybe the paint wasn't quite dry. Oops!

I believe what you are seeing is the reflection of the lights off the decal on the wall. It is an "A", on the turbolift doors, indicating Level A, but why wouldn't anyone notice a big, white, bright piece of paper on the wall before filming began? Also, decals aren't painted on the doors they are printed out on an adhesive sheet, forming essentially a big sticker.

I submitted the photos. The "white piece of paper" is actually just a reflection off the decal on the door.

The Kobyashi Maru set is supposed to be just that -- a simulator set that the cadets keep blowing up. The set had obviously just been refurbished after its last battle and one of the workers forgot to remove a stencil that fell off when Saavik shook the bridge up.
