This Side of Paradise - S1-E24

Plot hole: When Captain Kirk is the last person unaffected by the spores, he's on the bridge lamenting the fact that he is trapped in orbit above the planet since he can't pilot the ship alone. He also can't call for help because Lt. Uhura sabotaged long range communications. but Captain Kirk has somehow forgotten about the shuttle craft. He could have easily escaped on one of those.

Continuity mistake: As Kirk sits on the deserted bridge, there is nothing out of the ordinary with him. After he sits at the helm position, the camera looks at him over the console, and there's suddenly a spore spewing plant to shoot him.

Suggested correction: The plant did not suddenly appear, it was there from earlier in the episode.

Other mistake: After Spock is hit with the spores, he goes down on all fours in pain. As he writhes around, the skin tone of his ears is vastly different to his other makeup.

Other mistake: As Spock and Kirk are fighting, Spock bends a steel bar with one of his blows. When he hits Kirk, though, it simply makes Kirk a little sore. A blow strong enough to bend a steel bar would shatter human bones.

Continuity mistake: As Spock and Kirk are fighting, Spock pushes Kirk to the wall after bending the bar with his first blow. The bent bar falls to the ground and ends up against the wall by Kirk’s feet. Moments later, the bar is nowhere to be found.

Continuity mistake: Kirk threw a "spore flower" across the bridge and it landed towards the front of the bridge. Later on, Kirk returns to the bridge and despite all the crew being on the planet the flower is gone. (00:28:20)
