The Squire of Gothos - S1-E17

Plot hole: Trelane says he studied Earth images that travelled to him at light speed, and earlier they establish Gothos is 900 years from Earth. But Trelane references Napoleon and Hamilton, who weren't around until 1800 or so. That would put this episode in 2700, but the original Trek episodes are set in the 2200's.

Continuity mistake: 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.

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."

Court Martial - S1-E20

Factual error: When they are searching for Finney hidden somewhere in the ship, all ship noises are deadened, and the heartbeats of those on the bridge are muffled by McCoy. In order to locate Finney's heartbeat the ship's auditory sensors are magnified by "one to the fourth power". That's 1x1x1x1 = 1, ie no magnification.

A Taste of Armageddon - S1-E23

Continuity mistake: Just after the ship is first attacked, Scotty tells McCoy, "We can't fire full phasers with our screens up." Say what? The Enterprise couldn't operate transporters with the shields up, but it fired its phasers, full or otherwise, with the screens up every time it went into battle, and always had. If they'd been forced to shut their shields down every time they fired, the Enterprise would have been history long before this.

Where No Man Has Gone Before - S1-E3

Revealing mistake: After the ship enters the galactic barrier, when Kirk orders "navigation on automatic" there are flashes of light, and in a closeup of the first console just to the left of the main viewscreen, we can see the special effects material spread across the panel below the controls, for the fire to burn when it explodes. Then it cuts to the wideshot as a second console (near Spock's station) blows up, but in the background that first console is intact - no fire/damage whatsoever (it explodes again in a following wideshot).

Space Seed - S1-E22

Plot hole: It is stated during the episode that Khan was, at one time, the ruler of over 1/4th the Earth's population, during a very key moment in the planet's history (The "Eugenics" Wars). Such a personage undoubtedly would be very well known to 23rd century Earth people, at a level of infamy approximating Julius Caeser or Adolf Hitler. Yet it is only 2/3rds the way through the episode, thanks to a computer search by Spock, that the crew divines his identity. Lt. McGivers at the very least should have almost instantly recognized him.

This Side of Paradise - S1-E24

Continuity mistake: Kirk threw a "spore flower" across the bridge and it landed towards the front of the bridge. Later on, Kirk returns to the bridge and despite all the crew being on the planet the flower is gone.

A Taste of Armageddon - S1-E23

Continuity mistake: The landing party had been apprehended and placed in a locked room under the supervision of a single guard. Spock manages to free them and Kirk knocks out this guard, leaving him in the locked room. Later on in the episode, they return to this very room and somehow this guard is gone. He could not have woken up and walked out because it is a locked room and Kirk took his key.

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.
