Shore Leave - S1-E16

Revealing mistake: Near the end of the episode, the heavy chains restraining the "loose" tiger are visible both around his neck and running across the rocks to the right of the shot. (00:42:35)

Shore Leave - S1-E16

Character mistake: When Spock beams down after calculating there was just enough energy left for him to do so, Sulu and Kirk watch him materialize, and Sulu says, "Someone beaming down from the bridge." From the bridge? Shouldn't he have said "from the ship"? No one ever beamed down directly from the bridge, but even if they could, how would Sulu know that's where they'd come from? (00:28:00)

Suggested correction: They're on a planet where their every thought can be almost instantly created in physical form. Within the context of the episode it wouldn't be unusual to see literally anything in the background. Perhaps one of them was thinking about something involving that structure and it was being constructed for them.

Shore Leave - S1-E16

Revealing mistake: Stock footage turns the single plane strafing Rodriguez and Angela into two attacking planes for a moment. It becomes one plane again when it flies over Kirk and company. (00:33:40)

Shore Leave - S1-E16

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. They're cut off from the ship by the power drain, so she couldn't have beamed up for a new one. She emerges from the bushes after changing, and now her tunic is torn at the left shoulder. (00:43:25)

Shore Leave - S1-E16

Continuity mistake: Finnegan flips Kirk over his shoulder near the end of their fight. When Kirk lands, his uniform is still completely intact, but when we cut to a close-up, his shirt is suddenly shredded. (00:38:30)

Shore Leave - S1-E16

Visible crew/equipment: While Kirk is with Spock, when Finnegan shows up again Jimmy boy gives in to the chase, then as Finnegan runs and shouts, "Here I am," the shadow of the camera equipment is visible at the bottom right side of the screen, as it follows Finnegan. (00:35:55)

Shore Leave - S1-E16

Factual error: In a scene where Kirk and McCoy are examining the tracks left by the White Rabbit and Alice, in the background behind some trees can be seen a white building (the shoot was done at Africa, USA, an animal theme park). (00:13:30)

Shore Leave - S1-E16

Revealing mistake: After Rodriguez and Angela run from the strafing plane, they end up stopping next to a tree. Angela falls to the ground without Rodriguez knowing that she was hit by the gunfire. He continues to watch the plane disappear with his head looking upwards. When his head comes back down, rather than looking towards her to talk (where her face would be if she was standing), his eyes immediately look down at her on the ground...as if he'd been expecting that she'd be lying there all along. (00:34:01)

Shore Leave - S1-E16

Visible crew/equipment: As Kirk orders the landing party to not say anything or think anything, he walks past a tree. Right after saying "and only that" the large shadow of a boom mic appears on the tree trunk at the top of the screen. You can actually hear the mic hit something making it stop. The shadow reveals that. You can actually see the mic's shadow vibrating after the hit. (00:44:09)

Shore Leave - S1-E16

Revealing mistake: When Yeoman Barrow's places her tunic on a shrub while changing, automobiles can be seen in the background through the brush.

Shore Leave - S1-E16

Character mistake: Yeoman Barrows is a crew member on an star ship and I assume has experienced or has trained to experience many different things she will encounter on the tour of duty but she freaks out and cries uncontrollably just because she sees Don Juan.

Journey to Babel - S2-E10

Amanda: And you, Sarek, would you also say thank you to your son?
Sarek: I don't understand.
Amanda: Well, for saving your life.
Sarek: Spock acted in the only logical manner open to him. One does not thank logic, Amanda.
Amanda: Logic, logic - I'm sick to death of logic! Do you want to know how I feel about your logic?
Spock: Emotional, isn't she?
Sarek: She has always been that way.
Spock: Indeed? Why did you marry her?
Sarek: At the time, it seemed the logical thing to do.

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.

What Are Little Girls Made Of? - S1-E8

Question: When the Enterprise is in orbit, it uses the Impulse engines to maintain orbit. The Impulse engines are located on the back (aft) of the primary saucer. Why were these not on or lit up? Unless they're using gravity, but there are the familiar engine sounds.

Movie Nut

Chosen answer: If they're in orbit, they're being pulled along by the planet's gravity well, therefore, impulse engines would only be used for minor corrections and would be "on standby" while in orbit, but not active. (Like keeping your car idling without revving the engine and creating plumes of exhaust).
