The Man Trap - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When Rand brings Sulu the plate of food, it has a bowl of colored cubes on it. Then there's a cut to a close-up of Sulu eating the cubes when Green is staring at it, and the bowl is now a plate. Then in the long shot it's a bowl again. (00:24:22)

The Man Trap - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When they first arrive on the planet, the tricorder Kirk is holding for McCoy starts on his left shoulder, disappears in the next shot, then in the next shot after that reappears in his right hand.

The Man Trap - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When the creature makes it's way through the ship and finds McCoy's room, it stops near the wall with a red vent behind it. It changes back to Nancy in a dissolve cut, but suddenly it's much closer to the walk and is now closer to the vent, something that would not have happened by a simple morph like seen before.

The Man Trap - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When Kirk is telling Crater that he needs him and his wife to stay on their ship till he finds out what killed his man, Kirk has his arms crossed. When Crater steps up to him and the angle changes, Kirk's arms are suddenly down at his side. This continuously changes back and forth between shots. (00:18:07)

The Man Trap - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: Kirk jokes with Bones after they land about flowers and is holding some hay or grass in his hands. After Bones makes the comment about bribing girls, Kirk lowers his hand off screen but with the grass still in it. It jump cuts to a different angle from further away and suddenly his hand is empty, and there is no grass on the ground where he could have dropped it. (00:00:57)

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. 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.

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.
