Amok Time - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: When Kirk confronts Spock in his quarters, Kirk asks if it's something only his planet can do for him, then Kirk uses his left hand to grab hold of Spock's arm as he drops the stylus, but in the closeup it's Kirk's right hand holding Spock's arm up, and that stylus is also back in Spock's raised hand.

Amok Time - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: Spock is standing in the background with his back to the wall and his hands behind him. A few seconds later, the shot changes to him deep in the "Plak Tow", with his left shoulder touching the wall and with his hands intertwined. The next shot has him standing with his back against the wall again, hands behind his back again. The scene would have flowed nicely if they hadn't inserted the "Plak Tow" shot in between. That two second clip had been used already a few minutes earlier. (00:33:03)

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.

Amok Time - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: When Spock and Captain Kirk are fighting with the lirpa, watch Kirk closely after he has been slashed by Spock and his shirt ripped. Both the ripped shirt and scar appear and disappear throughout the rest of the fight.

Amok Time - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: Just before T'Pring calls for the challenge, there's a wide shot of her going toward the gong. Then they cut to a closeup and she is standing beside Stonn, and then she starts moving toward the gong again.

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: Spock explains that it is deeply personal and is never talked about with other worlders. Even McCoy didn't know about it.

Who Mourns for Adonais? - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: Apollo's lightning bolt throws Scotty across the table and dislodges a big bunch of green grapes from the fruit bowl. They fall onto the table. But when Kirk's crew later assemble at the table, the green grapes aren't there, or in the bowl, or anywhere in the temple. They magically reappear in the bowl just after Spock gets through to Kirk on the communicator. (00:18:55 - 00:41:10)

Who Mourns for Adonais? - S2-E2

Audio problem: At the temple, as Kirk goes to call the ship, he flips the communicator to open it, as he usually does. However, he has to flip it twice to get it to open, but the sound of the channel opening is heard from the second he starts.

The Changeling - S2-E3

Visible crew/equipment: When Kirk walks into the brig Spock tells him that Nomad has almost human stubbornness, and that its screens are still up, then just as Kirk moves closer to Nomad the shadow of the moving boom mic is visible at the top, left side of the screen. (00:28:15)

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. (00:35:00)

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.

Journey to Babel - S2-E10

Amanda: And you, Sarek, would you also say thank you to your son?
Sarek: I don't understand.
Amanda: Well, for saving your life.
Sarek: Spock acted in the only logical manner open to him. One does not thank logic, Amanda.
Amanda: Logic, logic - I'm sick to death of logic! Do you want to know how I feel about your logic?
Spock: Emotional, isn't she?
Sarek: She has always been that way.
Spock: Indeed? Why did you marry her?
Sarek: At the time, it seemed the logical thing to do.

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.

What Are Little Girls Made Of? - S1-E8

Question: When the Enterprise is in orbit, it uses the Impulse engines to maintain orbit. The Impulse engines are located on the back (aft) of the primary saucer. Why were these not on or lit up? Unless they're using gravity, but there are the familiar engine sounds.

Movie Nut

Chosen answer: If they're in orbit, they're being pulled along by the planet's gravity well, therefore, impulse engines would only be used for minor corrections and would be "on standby" while in orbit, but not active. (Like keeping your car idling without revving the engine and creating plumes of exhaust).
