12 mistakes in Where No Man Has Gone Before

Where No Man Has Gone Before - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When Kirk is fighting Gary Mitchell, his tombstone reads James R. Kirk. Kirk's middle name is Tiberius. Mitchell is a friend of long standing and would not have got it wrong.

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Dr. Dehnar is talking to Gary Mitchell in sick bay, when he grabs her arm you can see the shadow of the boom mike on the door and adjacent wall.

Where No Man Has Gone Before - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When Kirk exits the turbolift he sits in the captain's chair, and Yeoman Smith stands behind him with barely any space between them, but in the shot facing the main viewscreen Smith is gone, and in the next shot she reappears right behind Kirk again.

Visible crew/equipment: After Kirk's briefing regarding Mitchell's abilities, when Spock and Kirk are alone just as Spock says that they'll never reach an earth base with Mitchell aboard, the boom mic casts a shadow overhead until Spock steps forward, and a bit can be seen again when Spock tells Kirk that it's his only choice.

Revealing mistake: When Kirk & Spock are watching Gary read the pages on the monitor one after the other, look closely: it's the same two pages back and forth.

Where No Man Has Gone Before - S1-E3

Revealing mistake: After the ship enters the galactic barrier, when Kirk orders "navigation on automatic" there are flashes of light, and in a closeup of the first console just to the left of the main viewscreen, we can see the special effects material spread across the panel below the controls, for the fire to burn when it explodes. Then it cuts to the wideshot as a second console (near Spock's station) blows up, but in the background that first console is intact - no fire/damage whatsoever (it explodes again in a following wideshot).

Revealing mistake: The readers in Sick Bay are supposed to be display screens, a type of CRT, for reading material. Mitchell turns his off to rest, but the words are still plainly visible.

Where No Man Has Gone Before - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When the ship approaches the galaxy edge Yeoman Smith is standing behind the captain's chair, but when Kirk orders Mitchell to, "Neutralize warp...hold this position," and also "Address intercraft," in Mitchell's closeups Smith has vanished - even in the shadows being cast, though she reappears in the next shot.
