Star Trek

The Galileo Seven - S1-E16

Continuity mistake: After Spock tells Boma and Gaetano that he's in command and they should fire only to frighten, not to kill, one of the creatures throws a spear and then his shield at the trio, and when the shield hits the ground it's much smaller than the huge shield lying on the ground in the next close-up.

The Conscience of the King - S1-E13

Visible crew/equipment: When Lenore arrives at the Leighton's cocktail party, there is no furniture behind Kirk in the center of the room where they will stand in a moment. When Kirk introduces himself, in the next three shots facing Lenore, in front of her arm we can see a bit of camera equipment at the bottom of the screen.

The Conscience of the King - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: After Kirk introduces himself to Lenore at Leighton's cocktail party, when she tells him, "Karidian is a most unusual man... That was my father," Lenore holds the goblet in her left hand as she takes a sip, but next shot the goblet is suddenly in her right hand as she sips.

The Conscience of the King - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: After the phaser explodes in the pressure vent disposal unit, just before Kirk walks into Karidian's quarters there's a crown and board on the table beside Karidian, but when Kirk gives the paper to Karidian for him to read, the board is suddenly on the opposite side of the table, though it has not been touched.

The Doomsday Machine - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: As Decker is talking about the Planet Killer, the camera looks at McCoy. His left eyebrow is slightly arched, and his hair is styled differently. It can be seen that this shot is reversed from normal.

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.

Bread and Circuses - S2-E25

Continuity mistake: After Spock talks about Sun Worship on the bridge, Uhura goes to correct him. As she's sitting at her console, her arm is covering the note board. When the angle changes to include her, Kirk, Spock and McCoy, her arm is above the note board. Back to a close up, and her arm's covering it again.

Bread and Circuses - S2-E25

Continuity mistake: When Kirk, Bones and Spock are commanded to stop, and raise their hands, they do so. After a moment, Kirk starts to lower his hands. After the camera cuts to a shot from behind, Kirk's hands are by his sides and he goes for his phaser. After another warning shot, he says "I think he means it." The camera goes back to facing them, and his hands are up again.

The Enemy Within - S1-E5

Plot hole: Because of the magnetic ore on the work clothes of the man who beamed up, the transporter made duplicates of everything put through it, and so couldn't be used. This was further complicated by the control and power circuits being blasted by the "evil" Kirk. However, the ship carries a number of shuttle craft, which no-one mentions.

The Enemy Within - S1-E5

Revealing mistake: When the "pleasant" Kirk and Spock go down to the engineering level to get the "animal" Kirk, they split up and "pleasant" Kirk meets the "animal" face to face. As he steps out from behind a screen type wall, you can see that the "animal" Kirk is really Shatner's stunt double helping to fill the double role. This can also be told by the size difference when the two are close together and the shot is from behind the double.

Assignment: Earth - S2-E26

Continuity mistake: After Gary turns on the typewriter and tells Roberta to give her report but not with her fingers, she responds, "Well, how do you expect me to type, with my nose?" But the typewriter types, "How do you expect me to type, with my nose?" omitting the "Well." It didn't edit her question, because we see from the rest of the scene that it types absolutely every word she says until Gary turns it off.

Continuity mistake: Kirk is talking to Scotty on his monitor, after they have finished talking Kirk goes to switch off the monitor by pressing the button just below it.If you watch very closely you will notice Mr Scotts image fades from the screen before Kirk even touches the button.

Catspaw - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: When Sylvia angrily upbraids Korob for talking too much, an inserted reaction close-up of him makes the table and chairs change from in front of him to behind him and back between shots.

Journey to Babel - S2-E10

Continuity mistake: Just before Kirk kicks his attacker for the final time during the fight in the corridor, the Andorian picks the knife up off the deck with his left hand. In the very next shot, the knife has instantly switched to his right hand.

Devil in the Dark - S1-E25

Character mistake: Shatner fluffs his line when asking the mining engineers whether they've posted sentries. He asks if they've posted "centuries" instead.

Arena - S1-E18

Revealing mistake: At different points during the Metrons' transmission to the Enterprise, both Kirk and the Gorn pop into the picture a few seconds after the rocky landscape appears.

00:37:00 - 00:37:55

Devil in the Dark - S1-E25

Plot hole: Spock has absolutely no way to know, yet, that the horta only secretes her corrosive substance when tunneling: he hasn't had time to examine her or to do more than determine that she does indeed secrete a substance that cuts the tunnels. So he should at the very least scan the piece of her that falls off before he picks it up with his bare hands. Major lapse of logic, which given his character goes beyond a character mistake.
