Star Trek (1966)

Patterns of Force - S2-E21

Trivia: Some parts of the film Kirk and Spock watch are historical footage, some of it is made specially for this episode. If you look very closely you can see the Fuhrer Adolf Hitler in a car at one of his ceremonies. Beware he is hard to spot, because most of the time his head is behind some flags. (00:06:20)

The Deadly Years - S2-E12

Continuity mistake: Mr Checkov has a rather unfortunate hair styling during the beginning of his role in Season 2. In this episode his hair is normal until the end, where in between being given an order and carrying it out he somehow manages to go and have his hair professionally done and made all bouffant.

Bread and Circuses - S2-E25

Revealing mistake: McCoy is knelt down with the rather comically named Flavious Maximus attacking him. On the remastered version it is obvious it is a stunt double doing the part. (00:34:20)

The Enterprise Incident - S3-E2

Audio problem: During the scene where Kirk is talking in the briefing room, the director was obviously not pleased with how James Doohan said his lines.Due to budget constraints, instead of re shooting the scene, they simply replaced Mr Scotts dialogue with another one.You can see it since at one point his lips are completely out of sync, even on the remastered edition.

Somehow in the following few moments McCoy has established that Mr Spock's Body will die in exactly 24 earth hours. No explanation is given as to how he came up with this figure.

Continuity mistake: Throughout the entire episode the planet's sky is red, yet during the scenes where the clouds come and lightning strikes, it becomes obvious that they simply used stock footage of Earth's clouds, since the sky is blue. (00:11:50)
