11 mistakes in The Return of the Archons

The Return of the Archons - S1-E21

Continuity mistake: In the exterior shot, the double front doors of Reger's house have large curtained windows in them. After the Enterprise landing party rushes inside and closes the doors, however, they're suddenly solid wood with no windows.

Continuity mistake: The lawgivers' robes that Kirk and Spock take off and drop on the floor just inside the doorway disappear after they phaser the wall to reveal Landru. The robes reappear a few minutes later, but have now migrated several feet to one side, bunched up against the wall where they are no longer in tripping range of the actors about to enter the scene.

Other mistake: On the bridge, as the camera looks at the view screen, there is a flashing blue light reflecting on the console in front of Sulu, but there is no light other than scanner under the viewer flashing and it's too far away to project light that far, and it's amber colored.
