Court Martial - S1-E20

Factual error: When they are searching for Finney hidden somewhere in the ship, all ship noises are deadened, and the heartbeats of those on the bridge are muffled by McCoy. In order to locate Finney's heartbeat the ship's auditory sensors are magnified by "one to the fourth power". That's 1x1x1x1 = 1, ie no magnification.

Continuity mistake: McCoy uses a "masking device" to block out the bridge personnel's heartbeats. When McCoy masks Spock's heartbeat, he holds the microphone, err, masking device over the wrong part of Spock's anatomy. We'd already established that Spock's heart wasn't in the same place as a human.

Other mistake: Ben Finney's rank is stated as Lt. Commander. His rank insignia on his uniform shirt is that of Commander (The same as Mr. Spock whose rank is Commander).

Continuity mistake: In the finale of the fight between Kirk and Finney, Kirk's shirt is torn, exposing his right shoulder and arm.
