Revealing mistake: "The Cage": In the first illusion, Vina runs down the path from the fortress to Pike. When we cut to close-ups, they're both suddenly standing much closer to the building than before, and the fortress has changed color from brownish orange to white.

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Dr. Dehnar is talking to Gary Mitchell in sick bay, when he grabs her arm you can see the shadow of the boom mike on the door and adjacent wall.

Court Martial - S1-E20

Factual error: When they are searching for Finney hidden somewhere in the ship, all ship noises are deadened, and the heartbeats of those on the bridge are muffled by McCoy. In order to locate Finney's heartbeat the ship's auditory sensors are magnified by "one to the fourth power". That's 1x1x1x1 = 1, ie no magnification.

Spock's Brain - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: After Spock's brain is taken McCoy says he has no idea how long the body can last on life support without the brain. Somehow in the following few moments McCoy has established that Mr Spock's Body will die in exactly 24 earth hours. No explanation is given as to how he came up with this figure.

Revealing mistake: "The Cage": Due to a poor edit, there's an odd jump cut and a change of lighting just as the Keeper comes out of the elevator on his way to an attempt to steal the laser pistols from the cell.

The City on the Edge of Forever - S1-E28

Factual error: Edith Keeler says to McCoy, "My young man is taking me to see a Clark Gable movie." In 1930, Clark Gable was an uncredited bit player who had last made a film in 1926 - Edith, a New York charity worker, would not even have encountered his name.

The Trouble With Tribbles - S2-E15

Continuity mistake: The tribble-inundated Kirk is holding one of the small fur balls in both hands in some shots, but when the camera angle changes, that tribble vanishes and his hands are no longer even close together.

Space Seed - S1-E22

Continuity mistake: At the hearing in the final scene, there are two bits of debris of some sort (small, black and roundish) littering the floor at the bottom left of the screen. Whatever it was disappears when Scott, Spock, Kirk and McCoy get up to leave the room.

The Cloudminders - S3-E21

Continuity mistake: In "Amok Time" Spock described Vulcan mating rituals as "a thing no out-worlder may know" - here he goes on about them with Droxine at some length.

The Gamesters of Triskelion - S2-E16

Visible crew/equipment: When Chekov's drill thrall sits down and nuzzles up to him in his cell, the boom shadow is visible on the wall at the upper left corner of the screen.

Continuity mistake: When they first arrive on the planet, the tricorder Kirk is holding for McCoy starts on his left shoulder, disappears in the next shot, then in the next shot after that reappears in his right hand.

Is There in Truth No Beauty? - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: At the dinner for Miranda, Kirk drains his glass. No one refills it, but it's nearly full again a few shots later.

Where No Man Has Gone Before - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When Kirk exits the turbolift he sits in the captain's chair, and Yeoman Smith stands behind him with barely any space between them, but in the shot facing the main viewscreen Smith is gone, and in the next shot she reappears right behind Kirk again.

Dagger of the Mind - S1-E9

Visible crew/equipment: When Dr. Van Gelder tells Kirk that he wants asylum and his word that he won't be taken back to Tantalus, in the wideshot from behind Kirk as he moves to his right the two tape marks can be seen on the floor beside Van Gelder's feet.
