Star Trek

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.

Movie Nut

The Tholian Web - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: When Kirk, Bones, Chekov, and Spock go over to the Defiant, the suits they have on have a black support bar in the left side of the headpiece. When the camera looks down at the dead men and back to Kirk, you see the bar is on the right, and his hair is parted on the right. The very next look at Kirk, the bar and the part of his hair is back on the left.

Charlie X - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: After Sam tossed Kirk, he goes to a bench in the corner, picks up the towel that was there, and sits down. After Kirk tosses Charlie, Sam is laughing, and Charlie makes Sam "go away." After Sam fades out, the towel that he had around his neck is lying there, when it disappeared with Sam.

The Savage Curtain - S3-E22

Revealing mistake: About 4/5 through the show, while the Vulcan is being killed, if you look at Lincoln's wrist, you can see his makeup line.

The Immunity Syndrome - S2-E18

Continuity mistake: During the teaser, Lt. Kyle is wearing a red tunic, but when Spock returns to the bridge after his examination, Kyle is now wearing a gold tunic.

Balance of Terror - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: Midway through the episode, a stock shot of the view screen shows Sulu at the helm. When we return to the bridge master shot, however, Sulu isn't there. Styles is the only one at the console, and he's sitting at navigation. The helmsman's chair is empty. (00:32:05)

The Menagerie (2) - S1-E12

Revealing mistake: The shot of the castle on Rigel VII seems to be what Pike sees through his eyes, but in the next shot he himself is in the shot.

The Enemy Within - S1-E5

Revealing mistake: When Spock and "good" Kirk are searching engineering for the "bad" Kirk, there is an obvious cut in the shot just before "bad" Kirk jumps down from his hiding place.

The Changeling - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: When Scotty awakens in the sick room after being attacked by Nomad, Nurse Chapel has her hands placed on him. In the next shot, when McCoy tells Scotty to take it easy, Nurse Chapel's hands are no longer on Scotty, and in the next shot, her hands are back on him.

The Changeling - S2-E3

Revealing mistake: When Kirk, Spock and McCoy study a diagram that shows various parts of the Nomad probe, the lower right of the diagram reads "Computer Data Banks Recall & Transmition". It should read "Transmission".

The Changeling - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: When the security team is escorting Nomad back to the holding area, he goes his own way. One of the team then says, "Hey Nomad!" and begins to reach for his phaser. But in the next shot, he has already got his phaser out and trained on Nomad.

Friday's Child - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: The Klingon is standing on a hillside above Maab, yet when he fires his phaser, the beam streaks upward. From that angle, he wouldn't have hit anything but sky. Nevertheless, the beam somehow re-angles itself downward so that it hits and kills Maab. (00:46:05)

The Deadly Years - S2-E12

Continuity mistake: Mr Checkov has a rather unfortunate hair styling during the beginning of his role in Season 2. In this episode his hair is normal until the end, where in between being given an order and carrying it out he somehow manages to go and have his hair professionally done and made all bouffant. (00:47:15)

Bread and Circuses - S2-E25

Revealing mistake: McCoy is knelt down with the rather comically named Flavious Maximus attacking him. On the remastered version it is obvious it is a stunt double doing the part. (00:34:20)

A Private Little War - S2-E19

Revealing mistake: Kirk jumps across the burning hot forge to hide from the people approaching him, only problem is that he actually touches the red hot coals with the palm of his hand. Somehow he managed to avoid serious burns. (00:31:15)
