Mudd's Women - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: In the briefing room, after Mudd is forced to give his real name, the screen lights up with his record of offenses. In the picture, his image has the ear bauble on the right ear, but he wears it on the left.

A Piece of the Action - S2-E17

Continuity mistake: After Kirk proposes a deal at the end, Oxmyx agrees and points towards the others behind him with his left hand. A second later, he's facing toward the camera with his right hand pointing.

The Apple - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: When Kirk gives the order to Scott for transport, Spock lies in a diagonal position with the yellow spores on his chest with McCoy kneeling by him. After the cut to Scott on the bridge, Spock is lying with his head towards the camera, his chest is clean, and McCoy standing about six feet to Kirk's right. All much too quickly to be normal.

The Trouble With Tribbles - S2-E15

Continuity mistake: Uhura's image on the conference viewer is of a close up on her face. When the camera looks at the screen, the image is of her head and upper torso. Likewise, when Fitzpatrick is on, first it's his head and torso, then it's only his head and shoulders.

The Galileo Seven - S1-E17

Continuity mistake: In the first scene when Spock is piloting the shuttle craft out of the Enterprise and into space, as the bay doors open you can see both the ship's shuttles, the Galileo, and right behind it the Columbus. Yet as soon as the Galileo clears the bay doors, in the immediate reverse shot, the bay is empty and the Columbus has disappeared. (00:01:45)

The Changeling - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: When Kirk and Spock get to Sick Bay, the doors open to reveal Nomad coming out. But the shot of Nomad coming out is a re-used shot of it coming out of the Turbo Lift, not the Sick Bay, as the nameplate said. (00:42:10)

Space Seed - S1-E23

Continuity mistake: At the compression chamber, the pressure meter goes from thirty to ten too quickly to be accurate between shots. After showing ten, the meter jumps back to twenty.

Movie Nut

Miri - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: After the wild man is down on the mound, his right hand is under his body. In the close up, it's on the frame of the trike. (00:05:05)

Charlie X - S1-E3

Visible crew/equipment: After McCoy examines Charlie and they talk about how Charlie learned to talk by just listening to the ship's tapes, when Charlie stands up the two actors' marks can be seen on the floor - the short one for Charlie and the longer one for McCoy, where they both will stand momentarily.

Answer: Kirk was getting his physical and Dr. McCoy probably turned off communications, because if he hadn't, Kirk would have left and headed straight for the bridge, leaving McCoy irritated.
