Star Trek

The Galileo Seven - S1-E16

Continuity mistake: As Kirk speaks with Commisioner Ferris, Kirk's hands go from holding a piece of equipment to being straight down by his side, back to holding the equipment.

The Galileo Seven - S1-E16

Revealing mistake: After Spock has jettisoned Galileo's fuel and ignited it, when it cuts to the bridge aboard Enterprise the shadow of the camera/equipment can be seen moving across the helm console.

The Galileo Seven - S1-E16

Visible crew/equipment: After Spock asks Scotty if there's enough battery power to electrify the exterior of the ship, Spock tells everyone, "Get to the center of the ship. Don't touch the plates. Be sure you're insulated," and just as Spock turns in the rear compartment we can see the edge of the shuttlecraft set behind Spock.

Revealing mistake: After Spock finds Gaetano's body he carries him back to the shuttle, and in the interior shot as McCoy and Boma carry Gaetano's body to the back, we can see though the shuttlecraft's doorway the top of the set's blue backdrop.

The Galileo Seven - S1-E16

Continuity mistake: While Kirk questions Spock about his command decision on the Galileo, shots of Uhura and Mears show the ladies close together at Uhura's station with Mears' hands hidden but close up shots of McCoy show Mears and Uhura in the background further apart from each other and Mears' hands in front of her body.

The Galileo Seven - S1-E16

Continuity mistake: As the Galileo re-enters the atmosphere, you can see Scotty in the copilot chair. His hair is parted on the left side, but in the interior shot, it's parted on the right.

The Squire of Gothos - S1-E17

Revealing mistake: As Kirk turns to run on the castle steps, an iron bar barricade appears, blocking his path. When it does, watch the castle wall, and the barricade. It seems to slide just a few inches to line up correctly in the shot, showing poor editing.

Movie Nut

The Squire of Gothos - S1-E17

Continuity mistake: After swiping at Trelane to score a hit, which Trelane avoids easily, Kirk throws the sword away, which hits a bush as it falls. When Trelane calls up another sword, the bush suddenly stops moving.

The Squire of Gothos - S1-E17

Revealing mistake: As Trelane takes a swipe at Kirk, he hits a tree branch. As it breaks away, the building material it was made from is revealed, rather than it being wood.

The Squire of Gothos - S1-E17

Revealing mistake: In Trelane's castle, Kirk and Sulu are supposed to be frozen, but they slightly waver.

The Squire of Gothos - S1-E17

Continuity mistake: After DeSalle tries, and fails, to call the ship, he shakes his communicator, and the grille closes, but is opened again in the wide shot.

The Squire of Gothos - S1-E17

Revealing mistake: Just before Kirk finds himself in Trelane's "courtroom", look behind Kirk on the bridge above Spock's work station. The viewscreen with the planet on it is actually a piece of paper that's coming away from the wall.

Arena - S1-E18

Continuity mistake: During the attack on the outpost, as Spock arrives in his foxhole, Kirk puts down the box of ammunition and positions the grenade launcher. We cut to a higher angle as Spock scrambles around to the Captain's left, and Kirk is putting the box down and positioning the launcher all over again. As the action was supposedly continuous, there wasn't time for Kirk to pick the items up and set them down a second time. (00:08:40)

Arena - S1-E18

Other mistake: Kirk's voice-over log entry says he's been "placed on the surface of an asteroid." The Metrons earlier referred to it as a planet prepared for them with a suitable atmosphere. How and why does Kirk suddenly assume that it's an asteroid rather than a full sized planet? As an experienced space veteran, Kirk, who has already been told that it's a planet, would never make such a mistake. (00:23:45)

Arena - S1-E18

Continuity mistake: The giant rock sitting on the promontory, in long shot, is much larger than the Kirk stand-in stunt man who climbs the rock face to reach it. Next shot, when Kirk pushes the boulder over the edge, it's suddenly much smaller than he is. When it lands on the Gorn, the rock is even smaller - now less than half its original size. (00:31:35)

Jean G

Arena - S1-E18

Revealing mistake: At different points during the Metrons' transmission to the Enterprise, both Kirk and the Gorn pop into the picture a few seconds after the rocky landscape appears. (00:37:00 - 00:37:55)

Jean G

Arena - S1-E18

Continuity mistake: When Kirk and Spock are chatting in Kirk's quarters, they finish their discussion and as they head out Kirk orders the ship to red alert. Then after the commercial break, they're on the bridge, the Gorn ship is at a dead halt, and Kirk orders the ship to red alert again. With a hostile ship in the vicinity, Kirk, a highly experienced captain, would hardly have taken the ship off red alert.

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..." (00:13:50)

Tomorrow is Yesterday - S1-E19

Factual error: Towards the end of the show the Enterprise is leaving Earth orbit and heading towards the sun. We see the Earth diminish and the moon appear looking exactly as it does from Earth. From this angle we should be seeing the "dark side" of the moon, which looks completely different. (00:40:50)

Tomorrow is Yesterday - S1-E19

Factual error: When the Enterprise is slingshotting its way back to the "present" it uses the computer to deposit the two men at different times, The Enterprise is traveling backwards in time, so will logically meet the time when the guard was beamed up first, not after Christopher is returned to his cockpit. So the order is wrong. Should be guard then Christopher, not Christopher then guard. (00:43:15)
