The Man Trap - S1-E2

Plot hole: The salt creature needs salt, but there is no need for the creature to kill anybody, just have them deliver a large shipment of salt the next time some ship come to visit the planet.

Suggested correction: As shown several times, the creature is acting on craving and impulse. It's able to not attack Dr. Crater because they have a mutual relationship, as well as he provides salt for her from their supplies. But their supplies are running low, as he even stated they did have 25 pounds of salt but displays a jar with barely any left in it. It is reasonable to assume that he has had to start rationing the supply of salt to her to keep her till they could get another shipment. They were not getting the salt right off after Kirk arrived, and so the creature could not resist the urge to suck salt it needed out of the crewman when they were together alone, reason and logic being clouded by its desire and feral cravings.

Shore Leave - S1-E16

Character mistake: Yeoman Barrows is a crew member on an star ship and I assume has experienced or has trained to experience many different things she will encounter on the tour of duty but she freaks out and cries uncontrollably just because she sees Don Juan.

Miri - S1-E9

Plot hole: 300 years is just too long for the children to be on their own. How did they keep their clothes relatively clean for 300 years? Since the kids are playing all day they aren't out in the fields planting and harvesting crops for food, how did they eat?

Suggested correction: For the clothes, it's highly unlikely that they wore the same sets for 300 years. They are in a town/city and on a world that is mostly empty of most human life now. They can easily just find more clothing their size from other houses and even stores. As far as food, children are very good scavengers.

The issue of clothing is not so much an issue as is the issue of food. Given that the children are growing at an incredibly slow rate, their metabolism is probably much, much, much slower and would require far less sustenance.

Ah yes, didn't think of that. That too.

That Which Survives - S3-E17

Character mistake: Watkins is asked to check the bypass valve, there the woman appears, asked about the panel, it's obvious she's not part of the crew. Instead of calling security or Mr Scott he starts to describe the panel, which I'm assuming would be classified information.

Requiem for Methuselah - S3-E19

Factual error: Spock plays a piece on a harpsichord that he says is by Brahms, but Brahms was a late romantic composer and the piece is a simple baroque dance piece. Also by the time of Brahms the harpsichord was already obsolete, a composition like this wouldn't be sitting on a harpsichord.

Suggested correction: The first sentence is logical; if Spock is able to recognize the style as Brahms, then it should not possess the style and structure of Baroque music. The second sentence is not necessarily true because some romantic composers did write for the harpsichord. For instance, the late romantic composer Richard Strauss composed, "Divertimento for Chamber Orchestra after Keyboard Pieces by Couperin", which is scored with a harpsichord part.

Suggested correction: Spock explains that it is deeply personal and is never talked about with other worlders. Even McCoy didn't know about it.
