Star Trek

The Menagerie (2) - S1-E12

Plot hole: Apparently there is some confusion over the distance between Earth, Starbase 11, and Talos IV. When Spock first meets Pike on Starbase 11 he tells Pike Talos IV is only six days away. Yet when Pike (in the recording) speaks to the Talosians for the first time, he says he is from a star system on the other side of the galaxy. If Talos IV was on one side of the galaxy and Earth was on the other side, it would take hundreds of years at maximum warp to travel from one planet to the other.

Bread and Circuses - S2-E25

Character mistake: Spock expresses amazement that the natives of this planet speak Earth English, however, he and Kirk were both on the bridge when Uhura tapped into the planet's news broadcast and already know that they speak Earth English, and there's no reason to tell McCoy, because he heard it too. Commenting on it would be illogical.

Captain Defenestrator

Miri - S1-E8

Character mistake: Spock tells Kirk that without being able to test their vaccine with the ship's computers, "it could be a beaker of death." The vessel that the vaccine is contained in is a flask, not a beaker. The ship's science officer should know the difference.

Space Seed - S1-E22

Revealing mistake: Just before Kirk and Khan fight in Engineering, Khan bends Kirk's phaser pistol in half, but the small hand phaser on top is still functional.

The Squire of Gothos - S1-E17

Revealing mistake: Just before Kirk finds himself in Trelane's "courtroom", look behind Kirk on the bridge above Spock's work station. The viewscreen with the planet on it is actually a piece of paper that's coming away from the wall.

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 Enemy Within - S1-E5

Other mistake: On some VHS editions of this episode, the back cover features a picture of what appears to be both good and evil Kirk sitting at a table, however this never happens anywhere in the episode. That picture is actually from the episode "What Are Little Girls Made Of?"

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.

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.

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.

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.

The Ultimate Computer - S2-E24

The Apple - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: Throughout the entire episode the planet's sky is red, yet during the scenes where the clouds come and lightning strikes, it becomes obvious that they simply used stock footage of Earth's clouds, since the sky is blue.

The Alternative Factor - S1-E27

Continuity mistake: Lazarus had knocked out the transporter technician, but when Kirk arrives he is fine and operating the transporter.
