Balance of Terror - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: On the first map we see of the Romulan Star Empire, the two planets are Romulus and Remus. But the map later reads "Romulus" and "Rom II."

Visible crew/equipment: On the bridge, Uhura tells Kirk that Outpost 4 reported they're under attack, and after Scott says, "I've talked to my engine room, sir. We'll get more speed out of her," we can see the movement of the overhead boom pole's shadow as Kirk walks toward Uhura.

Other mistake: When the nuclear bomb explodes, the ship is tilted 40° to 45° to starboard (right), but Uhura goes over to the port (left) side of the lift.

Balance of Terror - S1-E14

Revealing mistake: As the Romulan ship is tilted, the dust and debris fall straight down, rather than diagonally toward the wall and floor joint.

Other mistake: The red alert light at the entrance to the chapel blinks a few times and stops, even though the rest are still flashing. Also, the last thing Kirk says is "All decks, condition red", which is unnecessary, since the red alert has already begun sounding.

Balance of Terror - S1-E14

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.

Balance of Terror - S1-E14

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.
