Wink of an Eye - S3-E11

Continuity mistake: In the 40th Anniversary release of the complete original series, this episode opens with Scotty at the conn, making an extended log entry, wearing his third-season swept-back hairstyle, and it is very obvious that he is visually mouthing several completely different sentences than we hear in the audio. After the opening credits roll, we next see Scotty wearing his more typical relaxed hairstyle with slight bangs. It is apparent that, in remastering and editing this episode, they inserted footage of Scotty from another episode altogether. For whatever reason, it is a glaring mistake of both continuity and audio editing.

Plato's Stepchildren - S3-E10

Continuity mistake: Just before Parmen starts mind-controlling Kirk, McCoy and Spock, he presents them with three gifts. Kirk receives a large, gold Greek shield, which the captain holds with both hands, in front of him, as the lengthy scene continues. In the wide shot, Kirk is holding the shield high up on his chest, completely obscuring his Federation insignia. In subsequent close-ups, Kirk is holding the shield down low, around waist-level, fully exposing his chest and insignia. Every time the camera cuts back to wide-shot, Kirk is again holding the shield up high on his chest.

This Side of Paradise - S1-E24

Continuity mistake: As Kirk sits on the deserted bridge, there is nothing out of the ordinary with him. After he sits at the helm position, the camera looks at him over the console, and there's suddenly a spore spewing plant to shoot him.

Suggested correction: The plant did not suddenly appear, it was there from earlier in the episode.

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.

The Omega Glory - S2-E23

Continuity mistake: The hilt of the blade Kirk holds against Tracy's throat is close to Tracy's jawbone in the close ups and further away in the long shots.

The Way to Eden - S3-E20

Revealing mistake: As the camera is close to Dr. Sevrin, the line of the bald skin wig is easily seen.

The Return of the Archons - S1-E21

Revealing mistake: The rocks pelting Kirk and the landing party when all hell breaks loose bounce when hitting the actors, the brick walls, and the concrete sidewalk.

Wink of an Eye - S3-E11

Revealing mistake: In the Enterprise lab, as a sped up Spock goes to move away from McCoy and Chapel, McCoy's eyes follow his movements rather than looking at where Spock was supposed to be after he "disappeared."

Let That Be Your Last Battlefield - S3-E15

Revealing mistake: As Kirk turns all the way around to look at the newly arrived Bele, the shadows of the stage wiring is easily spotted at the top of the screen.

The Enterprise Incident - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: When the guard opens the cell barrier, the light bars turn off, then slide back. As they come back out, they're already on, rather than the reverse of the opening procedure.

Assignment: Earth - S2-E26

Continuity mistake: To open the secret doors, Seven tilts one of the pen holders down to the top of the desk. After he's gone, Ms. Lincoln comes in looking for him, and the pen is upright without it having been pulled back up, unless it was supposed to reset itself.

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.

The Enterprise Incident - S3-E2

Plot hole: In the conference room, Spock informs Kirk that his theory of a Romulan cloaking device kept the sensors from detecting the ships. However, in S1:E14, "Balance of Terror", they figured out the cloaking device, and how it worked. Unless he was feeding into the deception, Spock shouldn't have had any theory when it was a fact.
