The Doomsday Machine - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: First, Scotty rigged a self destruct delay timer for Kirk that supposedly had thirty seconds programmed in. However, putting a timer against the one used in the episode, from start to finish there was one minute twenty seconds before the Constellation blew up. Second, Kirk was holding the communicator out and away from himself before his beaming, then it's close to his face as he materializes.

The Doomsday Machine - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: Decker is leaning over the forward console between Sulu and the other man, with Spock at his left elbow. As he gives the order to veer off, he starts to turn to his right. As the angle changes, it appears that he was standing straight up the whole time.

The Doomsday Machine - S2-E6

Visible crew/equipment: On the Constellation, the camera is looking at the man helping Kirk to get the secondary view screen working. As the camera goes to pull back to allow Kirk into the shot, you can see the shadows of the camera shades on the wall.

The Doomsday Machine - S2-E6

Revealing mistake: While Kirk watches, the machine fires at the Enterprise. As Spock is knocked backwards, watch his hands as he goes forward. They automatically go into a certain, almost practiced position. Then a moment later, the Communications officer is reporting to Spock. As she does, another shot hits the ship. She and just about all the crew react to the jolt a second before the camera and lighting crews simulate the hit.

The Doomsday Machine - S2-E6

Revealing mistake: Accounting for some effects being re-done by modern digital formatting, when the Enterprise approaches the drifting Constellation, as it rotates, you can see a star pass through the solid part of the Constellation's saucer.

Let That Be Your Last Battlefield - S3-E15

Other mistake: When preparing to go around again, Sulu and Checkov start working their controls. When there is a close up of Sulu's hand, it's obviously a re-used shot of Kirk's hand starting the 30 second count down timer on the Constellation in "The Doomsday Machine" (S2 E6).

Let That Be Your Last Battlefield - S3-E15

Revealing mistake: After Kirk shuts down the self destruct, he asks Spock if the ship is heading for Arianas. At one point in the dialog, you can see the display for the self destruct sequence is still on the screen, just not lit up.

Let That Be Your Last Battlefield - S3-E15

Revealing mistake: When the camera is close up on Beal's face, you can see a bit of real flesh color where the black and the white greasepaint used didn't quite match up.

Friday's Child - S2-E11

Revealing mistake: In the tent after Kirk and friends give up their weapons, there is a small fire in the holder in the center of the room. Although the flames are slightly off center to the camera's left, the are projections of flame light from off the camera's right offscreen.

Friday's Child - S2-E11

Revealing mistake: When the delegation of locals approach Kirk's party, the Red-shirt yells "KLINGON!" and goes to fire. As he moves, you can see the outline of the block the alien weapon will stick in.

The City on the Edge of Forever - S1-E28

Other mistake: When talking to Edith Keeler one evening, Kirk refers to a star in Orion's belt, pointing it out. The shot then cuts to a scene of the horizon. The sky is quite cloudy and the light from the sun is still lighting the horizon. The stars would not be visible.

Devil in the Dark - S1-E25

Continuity mistake: As Kirk is crawling through the tunnel leading to the Horta's nest, a tight view from his left side shows light shining on his face and darkness behind him. When the shot changes, though, to the view from the nest, there is light behind him and darkness on his face.

This Side of Paradise - S1-E24

Other mistake: As Spock and Kirk are fighting, Spock bends a steel bar with one of his blows. When he hits Kirk, though, it simply makes Kirk a little sore. A blow strong enough to bend a steel bar would shatter human bones.

This Side of Paradise - S1-E24

Continuity mistake: As Spock and Kirk are fighting, Spock pushes Kirk to the wall after bending the bar with his first blow. The bent bar falls to the ground and ends up against the wall by Kirk’s feet. Moments later, the bar is nowhere to be found.

The Return of the Archons - S1-E21

Continuity mistake: While Kirk is attempting to convince Marplon and Reger to take them to Landru, a distant shot shows Marplon's right hand descend from his chest to his side. Immediately thereafter, a close-up shows Marplon's hand again suddenly at his chest.

Court Martial - S1-E20

Continuity mistake: During Kirk and Lt. Shaw's conversation where Kirk learns that Shaw will be the prosecuting attorney, they are sitting at a table. A shot from behind Shaw's left shoulder shows her turning her head toward Kirk. The scene then shifts to a close-up front shot of Shaw, where she again turns her head.

That Which Survives - S3-E17

Continuity mistake: When Kirk intervenes to keep Losira from touching Sulu, she jumps back about two feet and stops. When the camera cuts to look at her, she's still moving, and is about ten feet from Kirk.

That Which Survives - S3-E17

Other mistake: After Kirk makes the cairn of rocks to bury D'Amato, he places a rock with the man's name on it. If the phasers couldn't cut the rocks of the planet, how did he cut a squared rectangular rock, and how did he put D'Amato's name on it?

The Tholian Web - S3-E9

Audio problem: When Chekov goes berserk on the bridge, he emits a scream and shoves Spock. When Spock holds Chekov's face, the closeup on Chekov shows a scared look, and the original scream is played again, but Checkov's mouth doesn't match.

The Tholian Web - S3-E9

Other mistake: After the shot of McCoy checking Sickbay, there's a shot of Chekov. It was a quick shot but it can be seen that the film was run back and forth through about a second, as his movements can be seen to repeat rapidly in reverse and forward twice.
