Plot hole: When the Medusan Ambassador Kollos and Dr. Jones materialize, the latter is wearing a protective visor and Mr. Spock can see that. Spock then mistakenly addresses Dr. Jones as Ambassador Kollos. Spock's suddenly illogical mistake seems odd: why should the Ambassador need to wear a visor? Shortly after, why do both Jones and Spock wear visors while carrying the Ambassador's still closed gasket to his cabin?

Assignment: Earth - S2-E26

Other mistake: Early on, there is a shot of the control room. There is a read out that is counting down from "5 04 15", meaning that the launch would be in just over five hours, not less than one minute.
