Star Trek

The Paradise Syndrome - S3-E3

Factual error: When Kirk is given the medicine badge, it's a stretchy elastic/Spandex headband. This is supposedly a completely pre-industrial culture paralleling the early Native American tribes. They have no fabric, no yarn, no spinning wheels - only hides and animal hair, neither of which can stretch a la Spandex. (00:14:40)

The Paradise Syndrome - S3-E3

Continuity mistake: When Spock orders the phasers to fire, they shoot outward from the ship at an angle from each other, but when they hit the asteroid they converge at a single point. (00:24:00)

The Paradise Syndrome - S3-E3

Plot hole: If diverting the asteroid was so important, what was the crew doing on the planet to begin with?

And the Children Shall Lead - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: The stardates of Starnes' entries are 5025.3, 5032.4, and 5038.3 But Kirk gives the stardate of when they arrive at the beginning of the episode as 5029.5, so apparently Starnes made two entries after he died.

And the Children Shall Lead - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: When Gorgon the Angel is on the bridge with the children, the positions of the children are different depending if the shot is from the rear of the children or the front.

Is There in Truth No Beauty? - S3-E5

Plot hole: When the Medusan Ambassador Kollos and Dr. Jones materialize, the latter is wearing a protective visor and Mr. Spock can see that. Spock then mistakenly addresses Dr. Jones as Ambassador Kollos. Spock's suddenly illogical mistake seems odd: why should the Ambassador need to wear a visor? Shortly after, why do both Jones and Spock wear visors while carrying the Ambassador's still closed gasket to his cabin? (00:01:45)

Is There in Truth No Beauty? - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: At the dinner for Miranda, Kirk drains his glass. No one refills it, but it's nearly full again a few shots later. (00:08:25 - 00:10:35)

Is There in Truth No Beauty? - S3-E5

Revealing mistake: During the fight in engineering, Marvick's kick, throwing one of the engineering crewmen violently back against the wall, misses by an obvious mile. (00:20:10)

Is There in Truth No Beauty? - S3-E5

Visible crew/equipment: When Kirk turns to follow Miranda across the arboretum, the camera shadow is briefly visible on the wall at the lower left of the screen. (00:29:50)

Is There in Truth No Beauty? - S3-E5

Revealing mistake: The colorful nebulae of the energy barrier are showing through the hull of the suddenly-transparent Enterprise as it heads back into the galaxy. (00:37:40)

Is There in Truth No Beauty? - S3-E5

Factual error: The Enterprise accidentally travels a short distance outside the galaxy and can't find its way back. But they'd have to travel for months to get so far outside the Milky Way that they couldn't, well, just turn around in the void and see it. Our galaxy is huge. 100,000 light years across. Very huge. And that barrier may surround the galaxy, but even it is big, pink and visible.

Is There in Truth No Beauty? - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: Kirk aims his phaser at a berserk Spock's head and fires, but the beam hits him in the stomach.

Is There in Truth No Beauty? - S3-E5

Other mistake: In the final scene, Kirk is still in the transporter room, but does not have on a visor when the ambassador transports out. Spock has his visor on, but then you see Kirk walk out of the transporter room without a visor and he is not going mad.

Spectre of the Gun - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: When Chekov sits outside the general store chatting with Sylvia, his left arm and her right alternate from entwined to un-entwined and back again as the shots change. (00:27:40)

Jean G

Spectre of the Gun - S3-E6

Factual error: Throughout the episode, there is a constant reference to 5 p.m. being the time Kirk and crew (a.k.a., the Clanton gang) were to die. However, the real 30-second shootout was at 3 p.m.

Spectre of the Gun - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: On the bridge, watch Uhura. She goes from both hands on her controls, to left hand on her earpiece in a split second.

Day of the Dove - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: In the opening scenes, Sulu's retractable viewer isn't there when the Klingon ship approaches on the view screen. But a moment later in a closer shot, the viewer is suddenly in front of him, fully extended. (00:01:05)

Day of the Dove - S3-E7

Revealing mistake: Chekov covers Mara's mouth with his hand when he assaults her in the corridor. Kirk intervenes and throws Chekov against the opposite wall. Brown streaks form where Chekov's hands hit the wall, most likely from the brown makeup used to create Mara's skin tone. (00:32:20)

Day of the Dove - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: At the end when the entity left the Enterprise, it came out of the secondary hull, however it left from the engineering dept. The Engineering dept. is located in the back of the primary hull.

For the World is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky - S3-E8

Continuity mistake: Natira orders the landing party to kneel before the oracle. Spock does so about a foot-and-a-half to McCoy's left. As the shots change, Spock "jumps" to McCoy's immediate side, then back to his original position, etc. (00:10:35)
