Star Trek

The Mark of Gideon - S3-E16

Plot hole: How the heck did the Gideons (who are not members of the Federation) get such exact specifications to make what Spock describes as "an exact duplicate of the Enterprise"? Does Starfleet just hand the plans out to anyone?

Suggested correction: This is an unanswered question, not a plot hole. They could very well have advanced scanning capabilities. In fact, that would be a more realistic explanation than schematics, as personal items are duplicated as well.

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.
