Errand of Mercy - S1-E26

Visible crew/equipment: After the Klingon vessel's attack on the Enterprise, while returning fire just as Kirk orders to maintain firing range at 100% dispersal pattern, the set's unfinished wood plank with grey paint drip marks can be seen at the bottom of the screen. Additionally, at the end when Spock goes to stand beside Kirk's chair (also when he walks away) the actor's mark can be seen on the floor by Spock's feet.

Super Grover

Devil in the Dark - S1-E25

Revealing mistake: A straight and level seam connecting the top and bottom halves of the tunnel Spock is crawling through is visible.

Tomorrow is Yesterday - S1-E19

Factual error: When the Enterprise is slingshotting its way back to the "present" it uses the computer to deposit the two men at different times, The Enterprise is traveling backwards in time, so will logically meet the time when the guard was beamed up first, not after Christopher is returned to his cockpit. So the order is wrong. Should be guard then Christopher, not Christopher then guard.

Peter Weekes

The Galileo Seven - S1-E16

Continuity mistake: As Kirk speaks with Commisioner Ferris, Kirk's hands go from holding a piece of equipment to being straight down by his side, back to holding the equipment.

Is There in Truth No Beauty? - S3-E5

Revealing mistake: During the fight in engineering, Marvick's kick, throwing one of the engineering crewmen violently back against the wall, misses by an obvious mile.

Spectre of the Gun - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: When Chekov sits outside the general store chatting with Sylvia, his left arm and her right alternate from entwined to un-entwined and back again as the shots change.

Amok Time - S2-E1

Revealing mistake: In the middle of the episode Spock goes to Plack Tao to meditate. We see a shot of him and then we see some other people. At this moment look directly behind all of them and you will see Spock waiting for his next shot.

Add time

Patterns of Force - S2-E21

Other mistake: In the jail cell scene, when Kirk tears a strap from the bed, his left handcuff is open. It remains open for several seconds, while he tries to conceal it by moving his right hand to block the camera's view.

Add time

Spock's Brain - S3-E1

Revealing mistake: "Trek's" new 3rd season uniforms were tighter-fitting than their velour predecessors, presenting a problem for some actors. When the landing party beams down in this episode, the outline of William Shatner's tummy-wrapping girdle is very visibly showing through his costume.

Miri - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: The dust smudging both Spock's uniform and that of the older security guard instantly vanishes when they walk out of the building to go look for the onlies.

Assignment: Earth - S2-E26

Revealing mistake: Isis the cat was disinclined to hold still for special effects shots. When Gary Seven beams off the Enterprise with the cat in his arms, the position of her head jumps several inches as they're dematerializing.

The Empath - S3-E12

Continuity mistake: During Kirk's torture scenes, the back shots have Kirk's arms stretched wide apart and yanked straight - the front shots have the chains going overhead and his arms are bent at the elbows.

Add time

The Enemy Within - S1-E5

Other mistake: Spock records a log entry as the "second officer". It appears they got "first officer" confused with "second in command."

Add time

Let That Be Your Last Battlefield - S3-E15

Revealing mistake: Because stock special effects footage was used, the shuttle supposedly "stolen from Starbase 4 two weeks ago" is plainly marked "Galileo, NCC 1701/7, USS Enterprise."

Who Mourns for Adonais? - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: Kyle reports the landing party's whereabouts on the surface, and Spock asks, "And Apollo?" Kirk had no chance to call the ship after Apollo revealed his name - so Spock should not have known it.

Whom Gods Destroy - S3-E14

Continuity mistake: After Garth attempts to convince Mr Scott that he is Captain Kirk and to beam him up, while he is banging his fists on the floor in anger he transforms back into himself and the fly like ring on his finger breaks and slides out of shot. It's quite hard to see but it does. The next time we see Garth's hand his ring is intact yet he has not transformed himself again to repair it.

Add time

The Omega Glory - S2-E23

Continuity mistake: At the end, the flag is brought in, and Kirk stands up - but in the next close-up of him, he's sitting down again. Next full shot, he's standing once more.

All Our Yesterdays - S3-E23

Continuity mistake: When the prosecutor visits the cell, Kirk's hands on the bars change positions when the camera angle reverses. From the inside, there's one bar between Kirk's hands. From outside, there are two.

xx:xx:xx

Jean G

Catspaw - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: When the giant cat breaks down the cell door, Korob falls beneath it face down with his head toward the door. In the very next shot, he's in a completely different position - face up with his feet toward the door.

xx:xx:xx

Jean G

The Savage Curtain - S3-E22

Deliberate mistake: So that he can look in the right direction, toward Lincoln, a shot of Kirk is reversed before the first battle, putting his uniform insignia on the wrong side.
