Star Trek

Charlie X - S1-E2

Other mistake: Spock and McCoy have a brief argument over whether Charlie could have survived on his own all those years. Because they're talking at the same time, Spock saying "Doctor" as McCoy says "Mr. Spock," the closed captioner apparently misunderstood McCoy's line. The caption has him calling Spock "Dr. Spock."

Patterns of Force - S2-E21

Other mistake: In the jail cell scene, when Kirk tears a strap from the bed, his left handcuff is open. It remains open for several seconds, while he tries to conceal it by moving his right hand to block the camera's view.

Add time

The Enemy Within - S1-E5

Other mistake: Spock records a log entry as the "second officer". It appears they got "first officer" confused with "second in command."

Tomorrow is Yesterday - S1-E19

Other mistake: In the end credits the character of Captain Christopher is credited as Major Christopher.

Add time

Arena - S1-E18

Other mistake: Kirk's voice-over log entry says he's been "placed on the surface of an asteroid." The Metrons earlier referred to it as a planet prepared for them with a suitable atmosphere. How and why does Kirk suddenly assume that it's an asteroid rather than a full sized planet? As an experienced space veteran, Kirk, who has already been told that it's a planet, would never make such a mistake.

The Lights of Zetar - S3-E18

Other mistake: Scotty has a science patch on instead of the engineering patch in this episode.

Add time

Whom Gods Destroy - S3-E14

Other mistake: At the end, Kirk teases Spock twice specifically about letting himself be hit on the head in order to determine which Kirk was genuine. But the phony Kirk never hit Spock on the head. He merely pushed Spock over and attacked the real Kirk. Clearly, the action sequence wound up differing from the scripted dialogue, and no one noticed. (Also clearly, Kirk is not speaking metaphorically here.)

That Which Survives - S3-E17

Other mistake: In this episode, when Kirk's phaser was on overload, it made a small explosion, but in "The Conscience of the King", a phaser on overload would destroy 2-3 decks of the Enterprise.

Add time

The Enterprise Incident - S3-E2

Other mistake: When Chapel comes into Sickbay and looks at the "dead" Captain, the camera goes to close up of Kirk, and he wakes up. After she yells for McCoy, the camera goes back to Kirk, and he goes back to sleep. The motions of him waking are obviously played in a slow reverse instead of him quickly closing his eyes.

Add time

Wolf in The Fold - S2-E14

Other mistake: In the scene near the end when Kirk orders Kyle to beam Hengist into space, Kirk and Kyle say their lines in the wrong order. Roughly: Kyle: Don't get excited, Captain. I would have done it. Kirk: Spock, you do it.

Add time

Is There in Truth No Beauty? - S3-E5

Other mistake: In the final scene, Kirk is still in the transporter room, but does not have on a visor when the ambassador transports out. Spock has his visor on, but then you see Kirk walk out of the transporter room without a visor and he is not going mad.

Add time

The Naked Time - S1-E4

Other mistake: After Scotty makes his remarks to Spock, he raises his phaser. The sparks start up before Scotty levels his phaser.

Movie Nut

The Naked Time - S1-E4

Other mistake: In the Transporter room, as the Decontamination field is used, the shuttered lighting casts not only on Spock and Joe, but on the walls surrounding the chamber.

Requiem for Methuselah - S3-E19

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.

Requiem for Methuselah - S3-E19

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

Movie Nut

This Side of Paradise - S1-E24

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.

Movie Nut

The Enterprise Incident - S3-E2

Other mistake: As the Romulan commander goes to answer the intercom, the switch she touches to open the link is already on, probably left that way from a previous take.

Movie Nut

Patterns of Force - S2-E21

Other mistake: In the cells, the particular strip of metal Kirk pulls loose has rivets that are noticeably different than the rest, making it easier to pull loose.

Movie Nut

The Return of the Archons - S1-E21

Other mistake: On the bridge, as the camera looks at the view screen, there is a flashing blue light reflecting on the console in front of Sulu, but there is no light other than scanner under the viewer flashing and it's too far away to project light that far, and it's amber colored.

Miri - S1-E8

Other mistake: As the club Kirk takes away from the kid hits the ground, you can tell it's hollow plastic.

Who Mourns for Adonais? - S2-E2

Other mistake: The bushes behind the temple shimmer in time with the temple when the ship is firing on it, but they aren't connected to it.

Movie Nut

The Gamesters of Triskelion - S2-E16

Other mistake: Kirk tosses the Andorian, and as he hits the ground, his shirt comes up and the man's real skin tone is visible.

Movie Nut

All Our Yesterdays - S3-E23

Other mistake: As Kirk nears the portal, the edge shimmers just before he gets to it. As he goes through it, his actions are greatly slowed rather than natural.

Movie Nut

Balance of Terror - S1-E14

Other mistake: When the nuclear bomb explodes, the ship is tilted 40° to 45° to starboard (right), but Uhura goes over to the port (left) side of the lift.

Movie Nut

Balance of Terror - S1-E14

Other mistake: The red alert light at the entrance to the chapel blinks a few times and stops, even though the rest are still flashing. Also, the last thing Kirk says is "All decks, condition red", which is unnecessary, since the red alert has already begun sounding.

The Man Trap - S1-E1

Other mistake: When Crater is hit by the phaser, his collapse is sped up.

The Man Trap - S1-E1

Other mistake: As Kirk low crawls behind some boulder and grass, his communicator flips open and closed. If it was opened, the sound of the channel opening should have been heard, but wasn't.

Movie Nut

Miri - S1-E8

Other mistake: In the opening, the planet looks to be turning the same as Earth does. On the viewer it is turning correctly. However, it is too quickly to be accurate, assuming it is a copy of Earth. If so, at this higher speed, the days would be shorter. Also, the ship should be moving at such a speed as to see the planet moving in the opposite direction.

The Menagerie (2) - S1-E12

Other mistake: When the transporter comes on to beam up Pike, the blonde ensign goes to face the transporter. As she does, she glances down at the floor to find her mark, and stands on it, looking into the chamber.

Add time

Assignment: Earth - S2-E26

Other mistake: Early on, there is a shot of the control room. There is a read out that is counting down from "5 04 15", meaning that the launch would be in just over five hours, not less than one minute.

Movie Nut

Let That Be Your Last Battlefield - S3-E15

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).

Add time

Movie Nut

The City on the Edge of Forever - S1-E28

Other mistake: When talking to Edith Keeler one evening, Kirk refers to a star in Orion's belt, pointing it out. The shot then cuts to a scene of the horizon. The sky is quite cloudy and the light from the sun is still lighting the horizon. The stars would not be visible.

Birdzip

This Side of Paradise - S1-E24

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.

Birdzip

That Which Survives - S3-E17

Other mistake: After Kirk makes the cairn of rocks to bury D'Amato, he places a rock with the man's name on it. If the phasers couldn't cut the rocks of the planet, how did he cut a squared rectangular rock, and how did he put D'Amato's name on it?

Movie Nut

The Tholian Web - S3-E9

Other mistake: After the shot of McCoy checking Sickbay, there's a shot of Chekov. It was a quick shot but it can be seen that the film was run back and forth through about a second, as his movements can be seen to repeat rapidly in reverse and forward twice.

Movie Nut

The Enemy Within - S1-E5

Other mistake: On some VHS editions of this episode, the back cover features a picture of what appears to be both good and evil Kirk sitting at a table, however this never happens anywhere in the episode. That picture is actually from the episode "What Are Little Girls Made Of?"

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.
