Star Trek

Assignment: Earth - S2-E26

Continuity mistake: Isis is an all-black cat, but in a few shots, her "stunt double" with white paws can be spotted. The cat lying on the floor of the transporter room when Gary Seven beams aboard is a white-pawed double.

The Omega Glory - S2-E23

Continuity mistake: Kirk and McCoy are in the Exeter's engineering section when Kirk uses the intercom to ask if anyone is aboard. Several shots of the deserted ship follow as his voice echoes off the walls, including one of engineering - with Kirk and McCoy suddenly, mysteriously absent.

The Trouble With Tribbles - S2-E15

Continuity mistake: The tribble-inundated Kirk is holding one of the small fur balls in both hands in some shots, but when the camera angle changes, that tribble vanishes and his hands are no longer even close together.

The Gamesters of Triskelion - S2-E16

Visible crew/equipment: When Chekov's drill thrall sits down and nuzzles up to him in his cell, the boom shadow is visible on the wall at the upper left corner of the screen.

The Changeling - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: When Nomad initially attacks the Enterprise, Uhura appears/disappears in subsequent shots of the bridge.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The Changeling - S2-E3

Revealing mistake: When the Enterprise is attacked in the prologue, some of the crew grab onto the central console (that Sulu and Chekov usually sit at). The console noticeably lifts up from the stage surface, almost falling over. Twice.

Amok Time - S2-E1

Factual error: Spock presents himself to Dr. McCoy in sickbay to be relieved of duty for "killing" Captain Kirk. However, as a medical officer, Bones has no place in the ship's chain of command. Doctors have an officer's rank in recognition of their education and value to the service, but no authority over military matters. (For example should Kirk, Spock and Scotty be indisposed, command of the ship would fall to Sulu who is in the chain of command even though McCoy has a higher rank) If Spock believes he should be relieved for breaking regulations and committing murder, and thus confined until court-martial, Scotty would be the one to do it, as he is the next senior officer. And this is not a character mistake, Spock quotes regulations regularly, there is no way he'd ignore chain of command. Contrary to what viewers seem to think, militaries have regulations and officers don't get to ignore them and do what they feel like! The only reason Spock talks to McCoy is so Kirk can walk out of the back of sickbay and create a nice emotional moment.

Grumpy Scot

Suggested correction: McCoy is a full commander and is in the chain of command. There are several reasons Spock may have chosen McCoy, the most likely being that Scotty simply wasn't available at the time. In any case, you're assuming regulations in the future must be identical to regulations in today's military. In the future, the regulation may simply require him to turn himself into the the first available officer above a particular rank. Spock also knew the reason for his killing of the captain was directly related to his mental state, which would fall under McCoy's expertise.

Journey to Babel - S2-E10

Continuity mistake: In one scene the Enterprise's phasers were pink instead of blue.

Catspaw - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: Korob uses his wand to put a feast on the table and light the candles. Only, in the very next, close-up shot of him, the feast is gone and the candles are unlit again. Next wide shot, everything is back.

Mirror, Mirror - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: When Kirk sits down to consult the computer, the big green potted plant on the shelf behind him is there in full shots and missing in close-ups. It's much too large to be completely hidden behind him: if it shows up behind his head in full shot, it should show in close-ups, too, but it doesn't. It's not there.

The Changeling - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: After Spock mind melds with Nomad, Kirk hustles him out into the corridor. In the shots taken from behind Kirk, the Captain's left hand is high on Spock's shoulder. In the reverse angles, his hand is several inches lower on Spock's arm.

Assignment: Earth - S2-E26

Continuity mistake: When Isis meows and enters the inner office, the door is open several inches and the lights inside the room are on. When Gary Seven follows her in a few moments later, the door has nearly closed itself and the lights inside are off.

Wolf in The Fold - S2-E14

Continuity mistake: In the briefing room, Hengist and the Prefect are sitting in chairs against the wall at least a foot apart, with bright overhead lighting that casts no shadows on the wall behind them. When we cut to a two-shot of them, however, they're suddenly shoulder-to-shoulder with almost no space between them, and the lighting changes to cast very dark shadows behind them.

Metamorphosis - S2-E9

Continuity mistake: The shiny gold blanket covering the dying Commissioner Hedford is tucked up to her neck in close-ups, but only reaches her upper waist in full shots.
