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. (00:03:45)

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

The Changeling - S2-E3

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

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)

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)

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. (00:16:30)

Jean G

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)

Jean G

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. (00:20:25)

Jean G

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. (00:28:20)

Jean G

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. (00:36:45)

Jean G

Obsession - S2-E13

Continuity mistake: Dr. McCoy's medical tunic has an engineering patch on it, instead of the science patch it should have.

Who Mourns for Adonais? - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: The fruit bowl disappears from the table altogether just before the Enterprise fires on the temple. The small statue that's been there from the start vanishes as well. (00:44:25)

Jean G

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.

The Trouble With Tribbles - S2-E15

Continuity mistake: Towards the end of the episode when the Enterprise is moving leaving from the starbase, the ship is at an angle to the camera pointing to the right of the screen. The starbase behind it gets smaller and goes up a little. If the Enterprise were leaving the starbase at that angle, the starbase should have moved to the left and then completely off the screen.

Return to Tomorrow - S2-E20

Continuity mistake: Why does Kirk think a being of pure energy is "impossible?" They've encountered several such creatures in the past in "Metamorphosis," "Obsession," and "Wolf in the Fold."

Mirror, Mirror - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: Kirk punches the Imperial crewman that helps him in the face, but when the guy falls on the ground he's holding his side.
