A Taste of Armageddon - S1-E23

Continuity mistake: Just after the ship is first attacked, Scotty tells McCoy, "We can't fire full phasers with our screens up." Say what? The Enterprise couldn't operate transporters with the shields up, but it fired its phasers, full or otherwise, with the screens up every time it went into battle, and always had. If they'd been forced to shut their shields down every time they fired, the Enterprise would have been history long before this.

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.

Mirror, Mirror - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: When Kirk sits down to consult the computer, the big green potted plant on the shelf behind him is there in full shots and missing in close-ups.

The Corbomite Maneuver - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: Spock states that the Fesarius (Balok's ship) "must be a mile in diameter". Yet any one of the small spheres that make up the Fesarius dwarfs the Enterprise. If the Enterprise is about 300m long, the Fesarius would have to be around 6 km in diameter - considerably larger than a mile.

Continuity mistake: Don Juan tears Yeoman Barrows' tunic at the right shoulder. Near the end, when she changes from the fairy tale dress back into the tunic, the torn right shoulder is suddenly mended.

Operation -- Annihilate! - S1-E29

The Trouble With Tribbles - S2-E15

Patterns of Force - S2-E21

The Doomsday Machine - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: First, Scotty rigged a self destruct delay timer for Kirk that supposedly had thirty seconds programmed in. However, putting a timer against the one used in the episode, from start to finish there was one minute twenty seconds before the Constellation blew up. Second, Kirk was holding the communicator out and away from himself before his beaming, then it's close to his face as he materializes.

Errand of Mercy - S1-E26

Continuity mistake: Kirk has a sunburn on his face and chest (it appears to end partway down his chest-most noticeable in the scene shortly after his identity is revealed to the Klingons). First of all, how does one get a sunburn while flying through space (and one that does not match the pattern of the uniform). If one wants to explain it away as being from a recent shore leave or Enterprise tanning bed, the issue still remains that the intensity of the sunburn changes as the episode continues.

The very next look at Kirk, the bar and the part of his hair is back on the left.

Continuity mistake: Midway through the episode, a stock shot of the view screen shows Sulu at the helm. When we return to the bridge master shot, however, Sulu isn't there. Styles is the only one at the console, and he's sitting at navigation. The helmsman's chair is empty.

The City on the Edge of Forever - S1-E28

Continuity mistake: The bundle of clothes Kirk steals from the balcony changes several times while he and Spock face the policeman. The red shirt is not visible, then is hanging down on the right, then isn't. It then disappears from view until they reach Edith's basement, where Kirk puts it on. Two belts, two jackets and Spock's cap also seem to have added themselves to the bundle somehow. They're not there when Kirk first dismantles the tangle of clothes in the basement.

Friday's Child - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: The Klingon is standing on a hillside above Maab, yet when he fires his phaser, the beam streaks upward. From that angle, he wouldn't have hit anything but sky. Nevertheless, the beam somehow re-angles itself downward so that it hits and kills Maab.

The Deadly Years - S2-E12

Continuity mistake: Mr Checkov has a rather unfortunate hair styling during the beginning of his role in Season 2.

Spock manages to free them and Kirk knocks out this guard, leaving him in the locked room. Later on in the episode, they return to this very room and somehow this guard is gone.

Mistakes

Trelane says he studied Earth images that travelled to him at light speed, and earlier they establish Gothos is 900 years from Earth. But Trelane references Napoleon and Hamilton, who weren't around until 1800 or so. That would put this episode in 2700, but the original Trek episodes are set in the 2200's.

Trivia

Gene Roddenberry created the transporter as an easier (and cheaper) way of getting Enterprise crew members onto a planet's surface, rather than landing the ship on the planet.
