Revealing mistake: "The Cage": When the laser cannon starts firing at the Talosian rockface, a styrofoam block falls and rolls away on the left side of the screen. After a brief shot of the crew, we see the cannon still firing, and the exact same block falls and rolls off screen on the left again.

Revealing mistake: While the interior sets for the shuttle craft provided adequate room for the actors to stand, the mock-up built for exterior shots was undersized, and too short to stand up in by several inches. So when entering or exiting the shuttle, the actors always had to duck.

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.

Let That Be Your Last Battlefield - S3-E15

Mistakes

When Kirk and Sulu enter the records room, they pick the lock. Later when they beam the officer back down, he enters the room without unlocking the door. The room should be locked since they beamed him down in the "past" erasing their having been on Earth and in the records room.

Trivia

Gene Roddenberry created the transporter as an easier (and cheaper) way of getting Enterprise crew members onto a planet's surface, rather than landing the ship on the planet.
