Star Trek

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.


Miri - S1-E8

Revealing mistake: When McCoy announces the wild man as dead, you can still see his head slightly moving.


The Ultimate Computer - S2-E24

Continuity mistake: The doctor and Spock are facing each other, the camera angle changes and they are suddenly shoulder to shoulder. (00:26:50)


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.


Amok Time - S2-E1

Character mistake: Kirk is surprised by Spock's behavior, but shouldn't everything about Spock be in his records? Kirk should therefore know about Spock's needs and have planned for them.


The Man Trap - S1-E1

Other mistake: When Crater is hit by the phaser, his collapse is sped up.

Movie Nut

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. (00:40:00)

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. (00:37:25)

Journey to Babel - S2-E10

Continuity mistake: After their life threatening surgery, Spock and Sarek somehow manage to switch beds between being in surgery and recovering. (00:45:00)


This Side of Paradise - S1-E24

Continuity mistake: As Spock beams up from the planet, Kirk, who is manning the transporter controls suddenly pulls a steel pipe from nowhere. (00:33:55)


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?"
