Star Trek

Turnabout Intruder - S3-E24

Revealing mistake: For the final time in "Star Trek's" 3-season run, Chekov mysteriously vanishes from the bridge to be replaced by that tall blond doppelganger, thanks to an old piece of 1st season stock footage used for the special effects insertion of the view screen. The costumes are also noticeably different from 3rd season's uniforms.

For the World is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky - S3-E8

Continuity mistake: Natira orders the landing party to kneel before the oracle. Spock does so about a foot-and-a-half to McCoy's left. As the shots change, Spock "jumps" to McCoy's immediate side, then back to his original position, etc.

Devil in the Dark - S1-E25

Deliberate mistake: Here, as in nearly every other ST episode featuring caves, caverns or mines, all the floors are perfectly flat and the lighting adequate-to-see-by or even brilliant. These configurations are easily found on soundstage sets - but not in nature.

I, Mudd - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: Norman is behind Uhura and Chekhov, but when Harry Mudd walks up to Spock, Norman is now behind android 2 and Spock.

Catspaw - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: After Korob fails to get information, he tells Scott and Sulu to take them out. They escort Spock and Kirk over to the door past McCoy, but don't stop (apparently DeForrest missed his cue.)

For the World is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky - S3-E8

Continuity mistake: Kirk orders Sulu to match speed with the asteroid, but in the next external shot the asteroid is closing in on the ship.

Devil in the Dark - S1-E25

Revealing mistake: The Horta's round tunnels have perfectly even striations and are obviously factory-manufactured tubes. Acid secreted by an elliptical creature burning through solid rock would not create a perfect circle. The Horta is visibly not chewing, sculpting or smoothing the sides. No acid burning method would leave patterned stripes on the walls, either.

The Return of the Archons - S1-E21

Continuity mistake: The U.S.S. Archon wasn't violating the prime directive, the prime directive was formed in 2253.

Mudd's Women - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: Kirk's says that it is Stardate 1329.8 in his opening log entry when the ship is in pursuit of Mudd's vessel. But after Mudd and the women have been brought aboard, Kirk's next log entry says that it is Stardate 1329.1.

Day of the Dove - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: At the end when the entity left the Enterprise, it came out of the secondary hull, however it left from the engineering dept. The Engineering dept. is located in the back of the primary hull.

Day of the Dove - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: In the opening scenes, Sulu's retractable viewer isn't there when the Klingon ship approaches on the view screen. But a moment later in a closer shot, the viewer is suddenly in front of him, fully extended.

The Paradise Syndrome - S3-E3

Continuity mistake: When Spock orders the phasers to fire, they shoot outward from the ship at an angle from each other, but when they hit the asteroid they converge at a single point.

Who Mourns for Adonais? - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: Apollo's lightning bolt throws Scotty across the table and dislodges a big bunch of green grapes from the fruit bowl. They fall onto the table. But when Kirk's crew later assemble at the table, the green grapes aren't there, or in the bowl, or anywhere in the temple. They magically reappear in the bowl just after Spock gets through to Kirk on the communicator.

That Which Survives - S3-E17

Continuity mistake: When Losira appears to D'Amato, he looks up from his tricorder, startled. The shot then changes angles, and D'Amato looks up at her all over again.

Whom Gods Destroy - S3-E14

Continuity mistake: When Scott orders Sulu to fire phasers to punch through the force field, the two phaser beams are diverging when they leave the ship, but converging somehow (space mirrors?) when they strike the planet.

Wink of an Eye - S3-E11

Revealing mistake: At the end, a special effects matte flaw causes the rear tip of the starboard side nacelle to vanish briefly as the Enterprise orbits Scallos.

The Tholian Web - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: When Kirk is being beamed aboard near the end, the crewman operating the transporter has a single lieutenant's stripe. But in the close-up of his hands on the controls, the stripe changes into the braid of a lieutenant commander.

The Ultimate Computer - S2-E24

Plot hole: When M-5 destroys the ore freighter, Dr. Daystrom says, "Fortunately, it was only a robot ship." But Daystrom wasn't on the bridge yet when Spock announced that fact. He didn't have any way of knowing that the freighter was unmanned.

The Alternative Factor - S1-E27

Continuity mistake: Mad Lazarus has just put a black-and-white hatch cover over the stolen dilithium crystal in his time ship. It's in place when Kirk arrives to confront him. But a moment later, when Kirk leans in and is accidentally transported to the negative universe, the cover has disappeared. It's still missing when Kirk returns to push Lazarus through the portal.

The Alternative Factor - S1-E27

Continuity mistake: Kirk keeps referring to Masters as "Lieutenant", even though she has no braid on her sleeve - all Enterprise lieutenants have a single gold braid on each sleeve.
