The Squire of Gothos - S1-E17

Plot hole: Trelane says he studied Earth images that travelled to him at light speed, and earlier they establish Gothos is 900 years from Earth. But Trelane references Napoleon and Hamilton, who weren't around until 1800 or so. That would put this episode in 2700, but the original Trek episodes are set in the 2200's.

Tomorrow is Yesterday - S1-E19

Continuity mistake: When Kirk and Sulu enter the records room, they pick the lock. Later when they beam the officer back down, he enters the room without unlocking the door. The room should be locked since they beamed him down in the "past" erasing their having been on Earth and in the records room.

That Which Survives - S3-E17

Trivia: Actress Lee Meriwether says she was teased daily by a playful DeForest Kelley while shooting "That Which Survives." He continually pulled down the glued-on cloth rectangle that NBC insisted should conceal her navel, then squinted at her tummy and asked, "What time is it?" On the final day of filming, she got back at him. When Kelley peeled off the cloth, he broke up laughing before he could ask the question. Meriwether had glued a small, ticking clock over her navel - set to the correct time, of course.

The Trouble With Tribbles - S2-E15

Bones: It is a human characteristic to love little animals, especially if they're attractive in some way.
Spock: Doctor, I am well aware of human characteristics. I am frequently inundated by them, but I've trained myself to put up with practically anything.
Bones: Spock, I do not know too much about these little Tribbles yet, but there is one thing that I have discovered.
Spock: What is that, Doctor?
Bones: I like them... Better than I like you.

Journey to Babel - S2-E10

Amanda: And you, Sarek, would you also say thank you to your son?
Sarek: I don't understand.
Amanda: Well, for saving your life.
Sarek: Spock acted in the only logical manner open to him. One does not thank logic, Amanda.
Amanda: Logic, logic - I'm sick to death of logic! Do you want to know how I feel about your logic?
Spock: Emotional, isn't she?
Sarek: She has always been that way.
Spock: Indeed? Why did you marry her?
Sarek: At the time, it seemed the logical thing to do.

A Piece of the Action - S2-E17

Question: After Oxymx gets Spock and McCoy for the second time, Kirk rushes in and turns the tables. Where were Oxymx's guards when Kirk came in? Krako had guards and he was a smaller time gangster than Oxymx.



What Are Little Girls Made Of? - S1-E7

Question: When the Enterprise is in orbit, it uses the Impulse engines to maintain orbit. The Impulse engines are located on the back (aft) of the primary saucer. Why were these not on or lit up? Unless they're using gravity, but there are the familiar engine sounds.

Movie Nut

Chosen answer: If they're in orbit, they're being pulled along by the planet's gravity well, therefore, impulse engines would only be used for minor corrections and would be "on standby" while in orbit, but not active. (Like keeping your car idling without revving the engine and creating plumes of exhaust).

Captain Defenestrator

Whom Gods Destroy - S3-E14

Question: What caused Captain Garth to go mad?

Chosen answer: He was seriously injured during a rescue mission, the result of the accident and his injuries also left his mind unstable and he began a descent into madness. While not a lot of detail is given, you can compare it to war veterans who experience shell shock or PTSD.
