The Ultimate Computer - S2-E24

Plot hole: When M-5 destroys the ore freighter, Dr. Daystrom says, "Fortunately, it was only a robot ship." But Daystrom wasn't on the bridge yet when Spock announced that fact. He didn't have any way of knowing that the freighter was unmanned.

The Alternative Factor - S1-E27

Continuity mistake: Mad Lazarus has just put a black-and-white hatch cover over the stolen dilithium crystal in his time ship. It's in place when Kirk arrives to confront him. But a moment later, when Kirk leans in and is accidentally transported to the negative universe, the cover has disappeared. It's still missing when Kirk returns to push Lazarus through the portal.

The Alternative Factor - S1-E27

Continuity mistake: Kirk keeps referring to Masters as "Lieutenant", even though she has no braid on her sleeve - all Enterprise lieutenants have a single gold braid on each sleeve.

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.

Friday's Child - S2-E11

Revealing mistake: In McCoy's video of the Capellans, the weapon thrown at the sapling actually misses it and nails a nearby bush instead. The tree, however, obediently breaks in half and falls over anyway.

The Menagerie (1) - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: The landing party beams down in daylight, but the window inside Mendez's office shows that it's night outside. In the next exterior shot, it's day again. Next shot back in the office: night.

The Corbomite Maneuver - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: After they've blasted the cube, Kirk and Spock are discussing repairs on the bridge. Spock's earpiece is in place one minute, but vanishes the next when the camera angle changes.

Requiem for Methuselah - S3-E19

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.

That Which Survives - S3-E17

Continuity mistake: When Kirk splits up the landing party, he asks McCoy to further inspect the vegetation. In the two shot, McCoy isn't wearing his tricorder, but in close-up, it's there, strapped over his left shoulder. Cut back to the two shot, though, and it's gone again.

Elaan of Troyius - S3-E13

Revealing mistake: During the battle scene, the use of special effects stock footage of the view screen, as seen over the helm from the opposite side of the bridge, briefly turns the short, brunette Ensign Chekov into a tall, thin blond guy.

The Gamesters of Triskelion - S2-E16

Continuity mistake: The Providers' representative colors on the game platform and the thralls' collars (all three colors are on Galt's collar) are red, yellow and blue. But when Kirk appears before them, the Providers themselves are red, yellow and green, and so is the gaming symbol inside their glass bubble.

The Trouble With Tribbles - S2-E15

Continuity mistake: When Kirk is standing in the huge pile of tribbles, he's cradling two large tribbles in his arms in full shots, but only one, and in a different position, in close-ups.

Friday's Child - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: Kirk's arrow strikes the Klingon in the knee. But a few shots later, the shaft is protruding from his thigh, several inches above its original position. Still later, he's holding one hand to his calf just below the knee, which isn't where the arrow was either time.

The Trouble With Tribbles - S2-E15

Continuity mistake: During the scene when the Klingon agent is exposed by the Tribbles, Kirk first holds the two furballs as if they had a handle on the underside (probably for the parts to make them wriggle). As he turns to Spock (the wide-angle shot), he holds the Tribbles cupped in his hands, his thumbs supporting their flanks. But as Kirk approaches Spock (close-up), he has them 'by the handle' again.

Elaan of Troyius - S3-E13

Factual error: Spock says the Klingon ship is approaching at Warp Six, but Sulu counts off the distance at about 50,000 kilometers per second - that isn't even the speed of light.

The Lights of Zetar - S3-E18

Continuity mistake: As Mira is speaking with the alien's voice, Spock is behind a console that has a piece of equipment attached to it. From behind Spock, the piece is to his left, but the close ups of Spock show him close to and directly in front of it.

Wolf in The Fold - S2-E14

Continuity mistake: When Mr Hengist goes on the rampage in the hearing room, Kirk pushes Yeoman Tankris behind him. However, when we see Kirk punching Mr Hengist in the jaw in the next shot, Tankris is missing, and in the shot after that, she is back again.

Where No Man Has Gone Before - S1-E3

Visible crew/equipment: When Mitchell tells Kelso that Dehner is a "walking freezer unit" we can see wires and other equipment on the floor, in front of the helm and navigation console.

What Are Little Girls Made Of? - S1-E7

Revealing mistake: When Korby introduces the new android Kirk to Chapel, as the duplicator table slowly turns the edit in the footage can be seen in this shot, just as the real Kirk suddenly vanishes from the space he was in.

What Are Little Girls Made Of? - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: While Kirk's trying to convince Ruk that Korby's creating the same danger just like the Old Ones, when Kirk tells him that humans are full of unpredictable emotions, the closeup of Kirk is a flipped shot.
