Star Trek

Charlie X - S1-E2

Other mistake: Spock and McCoy have a brief argument over whether Charlie could have survived on his own all those years. Because they're talking at the same time, Spock saying "Doctor" as McCoy says "Mr. Spock," the closed captioner apparently misunderstood McCoy's line. The caption has him calling Spock "Dr. Spock." (00:09:15)

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."

Arena - S1-E18

Other mistake: Kirk's voice-over log entry says he's been "placed on the surface of an asteroid." The Metrons earlier referred to it as a planet prepared for them with a suitable atmosphere. How and why does Kirk suddenly assume that it's an asteroid rather than a full sized planet? As an experienced space veteran, Kirk, who has already been told that it's a planet, would never make such a mistake. (00:23:45)

Tomorrow is Yesterday - S1-E19

Other mistake: In the end credits the character of Captain Christopher is credited as Major Christopher.

Balance of Terror - S1-E14

Other mistake: When the Enterprise hits the Romulan vessel, dust and bricks fall from the ceiling. A starship made of bricks?

Court Martial - S1-E20

Other mistake: Ben Finney's rank is stated as Lt. Commander. His rank insignia on his uniform shirt is that of Commander (The same as Mr. Spock whose rank is Commander).

The Naked Time - S1-E4

Other mistake: After Scotty makes his remarks to Spock, he raises his phaser. The sparks start up before Scotty levels his phaser.

Movie Nut

The Naked Time - S1-E4

Other mistake: In the Transporter room, as the Decontamination field is used, the shuttered lighting casts not only on Spock and Joe, but on the walls surrounding the chamber.

Movie Nut

This Side of Paradise - S1-E24

Other mistake: After Spock is hit with the spores, he goes down on all fours in pain. As he writhes around, the skin tone of his ears is vastly different to his other makeup.

Movie Nut

The Return of the Archons - S1-E21

Other mistake: On the bridge, as the camera looks at the view screen, there is a flashing blue light reflecting on the console in front of Sulu, but there is no light other than scanner under the viewer flashing and it's too far away to project light that far, and it's amber colored.

Movie Nut

Miri - S1-E8

Other mistake: As the club Kirk takes away from the kid hits the ground, you can tell it's hollow plastic.

Movie Nut

Balance of Terror - S1-E14

Other mistake: When the nuclear bomb explodes, the ship is tilted 40° to 45° to starboard (right), but Uhura goes over to the port (left) side of the lift.

Movie Nut

Balance of Terror - S1-E14

Other mistake: The red alert light at the entrance to the chapel blinks a few times and stops, even though the rest are still flashing. Also, the last thing Kirk says is "All decks, condition red", which is unnecessary, since the red alert has already begun sounding.

Movie Nut

The Man Trap - S1-E1

Other mistake: As Kirk low crawls behind some boulder and grass, his communicator flips open and closed. If it was opened, the sound of the channel opening should have been heard, but wasn't.

Movie Nut

The Menagerie (2) - S1-E12

Other mistake: When the transporter comes on to beam up Pike, the blonde ensign goes to face the transporter. As she does, she glances down at the floor to find her mark, and stands on it, looking into the chamber.

The City on the Edge of Forever - S1-E28

Other mistake: When talking to Edith Keeler one evening, Kirk refers to a star in Orion's belt, pointing it out. The shot then cuts to a scene of the horizon. The sky is quite cloudy and the light from the sun is still lighting the horizon. The stars would not be visible.

Birdzip

This Side of Paradise - S1-E24

Other mistake: As Spock and Kirk are fighting, Spock bends a steel bar with one of his blows. When he hits Kirk, though, it simply makes Kirk a little sore. A blow strong enough to bend a steel bar would shatter human bones.

Birdzip

Miri - S1-E8

Other mistake: In the opening, the planet looks to be turning the same as Earth does. On the viewer it is turning correctly. However, it is too quickly to be accurate, assuming it is a copy of Earth. If so, at this higher speed, the days would be shorter. Also, the ship should be moving at such a speed as to see the planet moving in the opposite direction.

Movie Nut

The Man Trap - S1-E1

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

Movie Nut

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?"

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.
