Star Trek

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.

Movie Nut

Bread and Circuses - S2-E25

Revealing mistake: Kirk uses a sword to cleave a Roman guard during his escape from the TV studio, but there is no blood on it. Later, though, when Claudius stabs Merrick in the back, there is blood on the knife blade.

Bread and Circuses - S2-E25

Revealing mistake: Kirk uses a submachine-gun to shoot the lock of the cell holding Spock and McCoy, but no bullet holes appear, nor is the lock damaged.

Scott215

Bread and Circuses - S2-E25

Revealing mistake: A Roman guard empties half a magazine of bullets from his submachine-gun into Flavius, but there are no bullet holes in his body, nor blood on the floor from the wounds inflicted by the bullets.

Bread and Circuses - S2-E25

Visible crew/equipment: Set lights are reflected in Spock's tricorder screen before he closes the cover.

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.

Movie Nut

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.

Movie Nut

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.

Movie Nut

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.

Movie Nut

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.

Movie Nut

Patterns of Force - S2-E21

Other mistake: In the cells, the particular strip of metal Kirk pulls loose has rivets that are noticeably different than the rest, making it easier to pull loose.

Movie Nut

A Piece of the Action - S2-E17

Continuity mistake: The pistol Kirk is pointing at the gangster changes elevation and angle as the scene cuts between the front of Kirk and over his shoulder.

Scott215

A Piece of the Action - S2-E17

Continuity mistake: The scene outside shows a guard standing close to a sign on the wall that says, "Jo Jo Krako", but the next overhead shot shows the guard further away, and a railing between the sign and the guard that would have prevented anyone from getting close to it.

Scott215

A Piece of the Action - S2-E17

Continuity mistake: When Krako's men are in the gun battle with Bela's men, the Enterprise stuns them with its phasers. The number of bodies and their positions change after the men are stunned.

Scott215

Journey to Babel - S2-E10

Continuity mistake: In the reception room, Amanda's glass goes from 1/4 filled after McCoy poured more, to over 3/4 full without his adding more.

Movie Nut

Metamorphosis - S2-E9

Continuity mistake: After landing on the planet, the interior walls of the shuttle craft or well-lit, and light green in color. As Kirk and party exit, the interior is seen to be dark and gray.

Movie Nut

I, Mudd - S2-E8

Visible crew/equipment: As the Alice android talks to Kirk and company, and addresses Uhura's question, the shadow of the boom mike can be seen above Uhura's head on the wall behind her.

Movie Nut

I, Mudd - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: In Norman's chamber, the medallions on Alice 3 and 11 go from blinking to steady, to totally off and back to blinking through the scene.

Movie Nut

I, Mudd - S2-E8

Revealing mistake: After making the Alice androids freeze up, Spock returns to Kirk. As he does, look at the rock wall behind him; the seam between the panels is obvious.

Movie Nut

The Return of the Archons - S1-E21

Other mistake: On the bridge, as the camera looks at the view screen, there is a flashing blue light reflecting on the console in front of Sulu, but there is no light other than scanner under the viewer flashing and it's too far away to project light that far, and it's amber colored.
