The Immunity Syndrome - S2-E18

New this month Other mistake: When the probe emits a loud high-pitched tone, everyone is in pain, with the exception of Mr. Spock, who is supposed to have super sensitive hearing.

New this month Suggested correction: Spock has also been shown to be able to control his own pain.

The Doomsday Machine - S2-E6

New this month Plot hole: Commodore Decker takes over command of the enterprise but Spock says if McCoy can certify him incompetent (which he obviously is) he can be relieved of command. McCoy says he will certify him now, so why doesn't he? In other episodes it has been stated that McCoy can order anybody regardless of rank to an examination to see if they are physically or mentally fit.

A Piece of the Action - S2-E17

New this month Revealing mistake: The drawers of Krako's desk are on the front side, not on Krako's side where they should be.

The Apple - S2-E5

New this month Visible crew/equipment: When Kirk is talking to Scotty there is a shadow of someone's head on Kirk's shirt.

I, Mudd - S2-E8

New this month Plot hole: How did the android Norman get aboard the enterprise? If he beamed aboard I'm sure someone would have noticed and where did he beam from? The Enterprise was nowhere near any planet and I'm sure they would have detected any spacecraft nearby.

New this month Suggested correction: These are unanswered questions, not plot holes.

But something phrased as a question because it has no decent answer can constitute a plot hole.

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. (00:03:45)

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. (00:14:50)

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. (00:10:10)

Jean G

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. (00:40:40)

Jean G

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.

The Changeling - S2-E3

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

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.

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. (00:22:10)

Jean G

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. (00:36:25)

Jean G

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. (00:43:30)

Jean G

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. (00:20:00)
