Star Trek

The Naked Time - S1-E4

Character mistake: Lt. Joey said to Lt. Sulu "You don't outrank me and you don't have pointed ears" but Joey is a junior grade lieutenant so Sulu would outrank him.

Shore Leave - S1-E15

Character mistake: When Spock beams down after calculating there was just enough energy left for him to do so, Sulu and Kirk watch him materialize, and Sulu says, "Someone beaming down from the bridge." From the bridge? Shouldn't he have said "from the ship"? No one ever beamed down directly from the bridge, but even if they could, how would Sulu know that's where they'd come from?

Devil in the Dark - S1-E25

Character mistake: When Spock and Kirk pursue the Horta, they come to a fork in the tunnel. Kirk points right and tells Spock to go left. Then he points left and says he'll go right.

All Our Yesterdays - S3-E23

Character mistake: Spock tells Zarabeth he came from a world "millions of light-years away." The galaxy is only about 100,000 light-years across - the area the Federation has explored even smaller.

Devil in the Dark - S1-E25

Character mistake: Shatner fluffs his line when asking the mining engineers whether they've posted sentries. He asks if they've posted "centuries" instead.

The Galileo Seven - S1-E16

Character mistake: In the scene when the shuttle is finally repaired and lifting off the planet, Spock asks "Fuel status?" and Scotty incorrectly answers "15 pounds PSI, sir. Approximately enough for one orbit." The correct answer would be simply "15 PSI" without the redundancy, as the P in PSI already signifies pounds. As an engineer Scotty would know this.

Tomorrow is Yesterday - S1-E19

Character mistake: When first considering the impact of Captain Christopher's removal from this time, Spock makes a mistake in his dialogue. He says "They show no record of any irrelevent contribution..." when it should be "relevent..."

The Immunity Syndrome - S2-E18

Character mistake: The officer at the helm is referred to as Lt. Kyle, and is named that way in the end credits. Yet throughout the episode, Captain Kirk keeps calling him "Kowel".

Bread and Circuses - S2-E25

Character mistake: Spock expresses amazement that the natives of this planet speak Earth English, however, he and Kirk were both on the bridge when Uhura tapped into the planet's news broadcast and already know that they speak Earth English, and there's no reason to tell McCoy, because he heard it too. Commenting on it would be illogical.

Captain Defenestrator

Miri - S1-E8

Character mistake: Spock tells Kirk that without being able to test their vaccine with the ship's computers, "it could be a beaker of death." The vessel that the vaccine is contained in is a flask, not a beaker. The ship's science officer should know the difference.

Mistakes

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.

Trivia

Gene Roddenberry created the transporter as an easier (and cheaper) way of getting Enterprise crew members onto a planet's surface, rather than landing the ship on the planet.
