Charlie X - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: In Janice Rand's quarters, Charlie mentally throws Kirk and Spock against the wall. After they collide with it and slide down the face of the wall, there is a huge indention and crack where Spock hit. After a camera cut to Charlie, when the camera looks at Kirk and Spock again, there is no damage to the wall.

The City on the Edge of Forever - S1-E28

Continuity mistake: The bundle of clothes Kirk steals from the balcony changes several times while he and Spock face the policeman. The red shirt is not visible, then is hanging down on the right, then isn't. It then disappears from view until they reach Edith's basement, where Kirk puts it on. Two belts, two jackets and Spock's cap also seem to have added themselves to the bundle somehow. They're not there when Kirk first dismantles the tangle of clothes in the basement.

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.

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.

Shore Leave - S1-E15

Revealing mistake: During the scene with Sulu and the samurai, each actor casts three shadows. Plus as the samurai rushes Sulu, the "sky" appears black behind him.

The Mark of Gideon - S3-E16

Plot hole: The whole plot centers on the crowded conditions of the planet. The people are literally bumping into each other. Even if they had the blueprints to build a full size model of the Enterprise, there would be no room for it.

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: That's actually a plot point of the episode; that they were so desperate for this to work they were willing to sacrifice that much space.

Balance of Terror - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: When Spock races back into the phaser control room, he places his electronic tablet on the console and kneels to check on the unconscious Styles and Tomlinson. From one shot to the next, the tablet changes its position on the console behind him.

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.

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?"
