The Galileo Seven - S1-E17

Amok Time - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: When Kirk confronts Spock in his quarters, Kirk asks if it's something only his planet can do for him, then Kirk uses his left hand to grab hold of Spock's arm as he drops the stylus, but in the closeup it's Kirk's right hand holding Spock's arm up, and that stylus is also back in Spock's raised hand.

The Gamesters of Triskelion - S2-E16

Continuity mistake: During the final match, while Kirk fights the lone Andorian thrall two things to notice. Kirk's collar of obedience opens up and drops between the two opponents, then when Kirk lifts and flips the Andorian thrall the back of Kirk's black pants are split open in the wide shot. Both the collar and pants are intact in following shots. (00:45:25)

Day of the Dove - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: The first time we see the ship travelling at Warp Nine, it is moving in a level, straight path. Next time, the rear end is elevated above the line of flight. The next time, it's moving in level flight again.

Court Martial - S1-E21

Continuity mistake: In the finale of the fight between Kirk and Finney, Kirk's shirt is torn, exposing his right shoulder and arm. As Kirk (the stunt double) goes for the knock out blow, the shirt is only a little torn in the front. Then the close up on Kirk catching Finney, his shoulder is exposed again.

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: Views of the tunnels made before the creature was wounded by Kirk and Spock appear almost perfectly smooth. It is explained that the creature exudes a powerful acid to dissolve the rock. This tunnel was made after the creature was wounded, so it is logical that the wounded portion of the creature would secrete less acid thus leaving an imperfection as the creature tunnels. This could be a case of incredible attention to detail by the set designer rather than an error revealed.

This correction is too much of a stretch to explain a perfect seam by the wounded Horta. Plus, if the Horta was secreting less corrosive substance, then that area would be less eroded, not more. If attention to detail was paid, then the area would have an outward seam, not an inward one.

Amanda: And you, Sarek, would you also say thank you to your son?
Sarek: I don't understand.
Amanda: Well, for saving your life.
Sarek: Spock acted in the only logical manner open to him. One does not thank logic, Amanda.
Amanda: Logic, logic - I'm sick to death of logic! Do you want to know how I feel about your logic?
Spock: Emotional, isn't she?
Sarek: She has always been that way.
Spock: Indeed? Why did you marry her?
Sarek: At the time, it seemed the logical thing to do.
