I, Mudd - S2-E8

Plot hole: How did the android Norman get aboard the enterprise? If he beamed aboard I'm sure someone would have noticed and where did he beam from? The Enterprise was nowhere near any planet and I'm sure they would have detected any spacecraft nearby.

Suggested correction: These are unanswered questions, not plot holes.

But something phrased as a question because it has no decent answer can constitute a plot hole.

The Doomsday Machine - S2-E6

Plot hole: Commodore Decker takes over command of the enterprise but Spock says if McCoy can certify him incompetent (which he obviously is) he can be relieved of command. McCoy says he will certify him now, so why doesn't he? In other episodes it has been stated that McCoy can order anybody regardless of rank to an examination to see if they are physically or mentally fit.

Suggested correction: Spock immediately asks McCoy for the results of his medical exam of Decker, which are required for him to be certified unfit. McCoy says he hasn't done one. Therefore, he can't certify it.
