Star Trek

Space Seed - S1-E22

Revealing mistake: During Kirk's fight with Khan in engineering, he pulls a white rod from a console and uses it to subdue Khan. The rod is very light, and several times when Kirk hits Khan with it, Khan shows no reaction at all.

New this month Suggested correction: First off, we do not know how "heavy" the rod is, but could have been handled easily by Kirk due to adrenaline from the fight. Second, in context of the story of Khan and his people being genetically engineered super humans, Khan would be able to absorb some of the blows Kirk delivers to him.

Revealing mistake: Just before Kirk and Khan fight in Engineering, Khan bends Kirk's phaser pistol in half, but the small hand phaser on top is still functional.

Mistakes

Trelane says he studied Earth images that travelled to him at light speed, and earlier they establish Gothos is 900 years from Earth. But Trelane references Napoleon and Hamilton, who weren't around until 1800 or so. That would put this episode in 2700, but the original Trek episodes are set in the 2200's.

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.
