Operation -- Annihilate! - S1-E29

Continuity mistake: When Uhura tells Kirk that she's made contact with his private transmitter she's seated at the communications console, but after the contact's been broken when she tells Kirk, "It's impossible at the moment because they stopped broadcasting," in this shot facing Uhura the turbo lift is not behind her - she's at a different station on the bridge - then she's back to where she was once again.

Devil in the Dark - S1-E25

Character mistake: Kirk informs Spock via communicator the Horta is ten feet from him, and Spock insists Kirk kill it. First, both know they cannot kill it with their phasers, and second, Spock's demand for Kirk to kill the Horta runs counter to the Vulcan philosophy of respect for all life. Spock would never want to harm, let alone kill, another life form.

Suggested correction: At this point they don't have any proof that they can't kill it, and since Kirk is in danger, it's logical to try. Also, Spock is half human and he's concerned about his best friend being killed. Logical or not, he'll want Kirk to protect himself at all costs. Other episodes have shown where Spock doesn't always behave logically when his friends are at risk and he lets his emotions come out.

Balance of Terror - S1-E14

Visible crew/equipment: On the bridge, Uhura tells Kirk that Outpost 4 reported they're under attack, and after Scott says, "I've talked to my engine room, sir. We'll get more speed out of her," we can see the movement of the overhead boom pole's shadow as Kirk walks toward Uhura.

Journey to Babel - S2-E10

Visible crew/equipment: The action is shifting back and forth from the bridge where the alien ship is attacking and sickbay where McCoy is operating on Sarek. In two separate takes when the scene shifts to sickbay McCoy is standing at the operating table. I noticed a wisp of smoke rising from McCoy's right side (left side of screen). It appears to be from a cigarette in an ash tray below camera level either beside McCoy or near the head of Spock's bed.

The Enterprise Incident - S3-E2

Audio problem: During the scene where Kirk is talking in the briefing room, the director was obviously not pleased with how James Doohan said his lines.Due to budget constraints, instead of re shooting the scene, they simply replaced Mr Scotts dialogue with another one.You can see it since at one point his lips are completely out of sync, even on the remastered edition.

Assignment: Earth - S2-E26

Continuity mistake: Gary Seven is talking to his computer, we then switch to Kirk and Co and after a few moments with them we cut back to Gary Seven. Somehow in that time, while talking to his computer he changed his clothes.

Operation -- Annihilate! - S1-E29

Revealing mistake: When Kirk and company beam down, the trees are brown. In the next shot, the trees are green. Most probably a different camera lens was used for the shots.

The Return of the Archons - S1-E21

The Lights of Zetar - S3-E18

Continuity mistake: On Memory Alpha, the viewer beside the dead man in the purple jumpsuit keeps moving from his left side to his right and back again between shots.

All Our Yesterdays - S3-E23

Plot hole: The law officer who arrests Kirk recalls hearing Kirk call the "spirit" Bones. But he wasn't there when Kirk spoke to McCoy. He rushed into the scene several minutes later. If he's lying, how would he know that Kirk used the name Bones? He wasn't there to hear it. Even if he had been, Kirk did not refer to McCoy as Bones in that conversation.

The Menagerie (2) - S1-E12

Plot hole: Apparently there is some confusion over the distance between Earth, Starbase 11, and Talos IV. When Spock first meets Pike on Starbase 11 he tells Pike Talos IV is only six days away. Yet when Pike (in the recording) speaks to the Talosians for the first time, he says he is from a star system on the other side of the galaxy. If Talos IV was on one side of the galaxy and Earth was on the other side, it would take hundreds of years at maximum warp to travel from one planet to the other.

Errand of Mercy - S1-E26

Factual error: When Kirk/Spock enter/leave the Council Chamber, the doors quietly open unaided (as though there were motion detectors in operation), yet the Organian culture - determined by Spock to be approximately Class D minus on Richter Scale of Cultures - would not have had such technology. A fact overlooked by Kirk and more importantly, Spock.

Space Seed - S1-E22

Plot hole: It is stated during the episode that Khan was, at one time, the ruler of over 1/4th the Earth's population, during a very key moment in the planet's history (The "Eugenics" Wars). Such a personage undoubtedly would be very well known to 23rd century Earth people, at a level of infamy approximating Julius Caeser or Adolf Hitler. Yet it is only 2/3rds the way through the episode, thanks to a computer search by Spock, that the crew divines his identity. Lt. McGivers at the very least should have almost instantly recognized him.

The Return of the Archons - S1-E21

Audio problem: In the transporter room, as Kirk is talking to Sulu, the door opens, McCoy comes in, and the door shuts. Trouble is that the characteristic sound of the door is missing.

Court Martial - S1-E20

Continuity mistake: In the finale of the fight between Kirk and Finney, Kirk's shirt is torn, exposing his right shoulder and arm. As Kirk (the stunt double) goes for the knock out blow, the shirt is only a little torn in the front. Then the close up on Kirk catching Finney, his shoulder is exposed again.

The Naked Time - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: In the opening, the crewman gets a few drops of the infectant on his hand, but the reddish mass on the wall remains. On the ship, when the spectral view is shown, the red mass is nowhere to be seen.

The Doomsday Machine - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: In most shots, the Constellation's impulse engines are lit up orange, but when moving to meet the Enterprise, they're not lit up, though the ship is moving.
