Requiem for Methuselah - S3-E19

New this month Factual error: Spock plays a piece on a harpsichord that he says is by Brahms, but Brahms was a late romantic composer and the piece is a simple baroque dance piece. Also by the time of Brahms the harpsichord was already obsolete, a composition like this wouldn't be sitting on a harpsichord.

Visible crew/equipment: The monofilament line holding M-4 aloft is visible in the lab when the floating robot delivers the processed ryetalyn to McCoy. (00:17:20)

Other mistake: As the miniaturized Enterprise appears on the table, the support for the model appears as well.

Revealing mistake: When Spock examines the unknown Brahms waltz, we get a close-up of the music. Unfortunately, the hand-written score bears no resemblance whatsoever to the piece Spock has just played, though he expressly identifies it as such. (00:19:10)

Continuity mistake: When looking at the view screen from the helm, there is a man sitting at the Conn position, but in the wide angle, there's a woman there.

Other mistake: If the ship had not been in visual communication, there's no way Kirk could have seen the Bridge or the crew in suspension.

Revealing mistake: As Kirk pulls the shroud away from the Rayna duplicate, look closely at the part of her head just below her left ear. The bald cap she wore to conceal her hair and give her an unfinished look.
