Suggested correction: After Kras falls, the next shot you see him still on the ground and starting to stand up, although Maab blocks the view of him. The shot cuts to the rocks and then when it cuts back, you see Kras walk up and stand next to Maab, then he starts to dust himself off.


Suggested correction: Why would he not be doing that in the next shot? There is no continuity issue.

Balance of Terror - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: When Spock races back into the phaser control room, he places his electronic tablet on the console and kneels to check on the unconscious Styles and Tomlinson. From one shot to the next, the tablet changes its position on the console behind him. (00:40:00)

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. Even if he did, humans can still go mad if wearing one and that's why Spock operates the transporter. 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.
