Revealing mistake: Stock footage strikes again when Kirk orders the red alert. A shot of the bridge and view screen, with Kirk standing in front of his chair, once more switches Kirk out for a stand in, and Chekhov has gone and is replaced by what looks like from behind like a young woman or a man with a long neck. Also the central display between navigator and helm is now different from that earlier. (00:11:15)Jean G
Other mistake: When preparing to go around again, Sulu and Checkov start working their controls. When there is a close up of Sulu's hand, it's obviously a re-used shot of Kirk's hand starting the 30 second count down timer on the Constellation in "The Doomsday Machine" (S2 E6).Movie Nut
