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)

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

Continuity mistake: Kirk calls Scott to beam up, and lowers the communicator from his face as he looks at McCoy. In the next shot, he's holding it to his mouth once more. The shot changes one more time, and it's lowered again. (00:31:55)

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

Continuity mistake: After he falls unconscious onto the blue rug, McCoy's position relative to the rug's top edge keeps changing between shots. (00:36:40)

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

Continuity mistake: Kirk orders Sulu to match speed with the asteroid, but in the next external shot the asteroid is closing in on the ship.

The Tholian Web - S3-E9

Visible crew/equipment: In the very beginning, the boom shadow is visible at the top of the screen as Kirk walks to Spock's station on the bridge. (00:00:30)

Jean G

The Tholian Web - S3-E9

Visible crew/equipment: A camera shadow briefly intrudes on the right side of the screen as Kirk asks Mr. Scott about the sensor readings. (00:00:55)

Jean G

The Tholian Web - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: Sulu's hooded viewer is up as he reports that the Defiant is starting to drift. In the next shot, a reverse angle showing the screen, the viewer disappears. This recurs throughout the episode. (00:06:10)

Jean G

The Tholian Web - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: During McCoy's struggle with the orderly, only half of the plastic colored bottles strewn on the table are knocked off onto the floor. But when Nurse Chapel hurries over to tranquilize the orderly, the rest of the bottles vanish, leaving the table completely clear. (00:19:10)

Jean G

The Tholian Web - S3-E9

Revealing mistake: McCoy's stunt double's face is visible several times during the fight with the berserk orderly in the sickbay lab. (00:19:15)

Jean G

The Tholian Web - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: When Kirk is being beamed aboard near the end, the crewman operating the transporter has a single lieutenant's stripe. But in the close-up of his hands on the controls, the stripe changes into the braid of a lieutenant commander. (00:46:40)

Jean G

The Tholian Web - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: When Checkov turns on the viewer in the transporter room, the Defiant is seen directly from the starboard side, when it should have been seen from the quarter profile port side, as it was drifting to the Enterprise's port side.

Movie Nut

The Tholian Web - S3-E9

Audio problem: When Chekov goes berserk on the bridge, he emits a scream and shoves Spock. When Spock holds Chekov's face, the closeup on Chekov shows a scared look, and the original scream is played again, but Checkov's mouth doesn't match.

Movie Nut

The Tholian Web - S3-E9

Other mistake: After the shot of McCoy checking Sickbay, there's a shot of Chekov. It was a quick shot but it can be seen that the film was run back and forth through about a second, as his movements can be seen to repeat rapidly in reverse and forward twice.

Movie Nut

The Tholian Web - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: When Kirk, Bones, Chekov, and Spock go over to the Defiant, the suits they have on have a black support bar in the left side of the headpiece. When the camera looks down at the dead men and back to Kirk, you see the bar is on the right, and his hair is parted on the right. The very next look at Kirk, the bar and the part of his hair is back on the left.

Movie Nut

Plato's Stepchildren - S3-E10

Continuity mistake: The shards of the goblet Spock breaks change quantity and position on the table with the fruit bowl on it. (00:28:30 - 00:31:30)

Jean G

Plato's Stepchildren - S3-E10

Continuity mistake: Just before Parmen starts mind-controlling Kirk, McCoy and Spock, he presents them with three gifts. Kirk receives a large, gold Greek shield, which the captain holds with both hands, in front of him, as the lengthy scene continues. In the wide shot, Kirk is holding the shield high up on his chest, completely obscuring his Federation insignia. In subsequent close-ups, Kirk is holding the shield down low, around waist-level, fully exposing his chest and insignia. Every time the camera cuts back to wide-shot, Kirk is again holding the shield up high on his chest.
