Star Trek

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.

Balance of Terror - S1-E14

Other mistake: When the Enterprise hits the Romulan vessel, dust and bricks fall from the ceiling. A starship made of bricks?

A Taste of Armageddon - S1-E23

Plot hole: The ambassador and his aide beam down to the planet. This would not be possible because earlier on Scotty refused to lower the screens/shields until the Captain told him to do so. It had already been established in an earlier episode titled "Arena" that transporters don't work with screens up. (00:32:40)

Patterns of Force - S2-E21

Revealing mistake: After being put in the cell, when the camera is in a closeup of Spock, you can see the lines in the prosthetic ears, and can easily tell where the makeup is blended into his real ear.

Movie Nut

Assignment: Earth - S2-E26

Continuity mistake: As Gary Seven beams in, Scotty's hair changes between shots.

Court Martial - S1-E20

Other mistake: Ben Finney's rank is stated as Lt. Commander. His rank insignia on his uniform shirt is that of Commander (The same as Mr. Spock whose rank is Commander).

Metamorphosis - S2-E9

Continuity mistake: When Spock shows the others the machine which must be put "in the proximity of the Companion", in the closeup Spock's left arm is up on the machine and we see the chair opposite Spock is empty. However, in the next shot Spock's right arm is up by the machine and Kirk is sitting in that chair. (00:22:10)

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.

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

Balance of Terror - S1-E14

Revealing mistake: As the Romulan ship is tilted, the dust and debris fall straight down, rather than diagonally toward the wall and floor joint.

The Naked Time - S1-E4

Visible crew/equipment: When Spock walks into the briefing room, he stands in front of the closed doors telling himself that he's in control of his emotions, and when he says, "My duty," the shadow of the boom mic can be seen moving across the wall at the top of the screen. (00:36:40)

Where No Man Has Gone Before - S1-E3

Visible crew/equipment: After Kirk's briefing regarding Mitchell's abilities, when Spock and Kirk are alone just as Spock says that they'll never reach an earth base with Mitchell aboard, the boom mic casts a shadow overhead until Spock steps forward, and a bit can be seen again when Spock tells Kirk that it's his only choice.

Charlie X - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When the Thasians restore Yeoman Rand.on the bridge she's barefoot, but when Charlie begs Kirk not to let the Thasians take him because he can't live with them anymore, we see Rand wearing a white fluffy slipper (which she wasn't holding when she reappeared), then she's back to being barefoot again.
