The Ultimate Computer - S2-E24

Plot hole: When M-5 destroys the ore freighter, Dr. Daystrom says, "Fortunately, it was only a robot ship." But Daystrom wasn't on the bridge yet when Spock announced that fact. He didn't have any way of knowing that the freighter was unmanned.

Assignment: Earth - S2-E26

Plot hole: Scotty is receiving images of the launch, supposedly from an orbiting satellite. But many of the camera views are obviously from ground level, and couldn't possibly have been taken from orbit. It's not a rebroadcast from a ground camera, either. The implication is clearly that Scotty is is picking up a live satellite feed.

Assignment: Earth - S2-E26

Plot hole: Spock claims that history is unchanged at the end of the episode according to the library tapes - how would he know? If history changed, the tapes would change too.

Suggested correction: Since we have no idea how the field works, or the nature of the Companion, this can't be considered a mistake.

Mistakes

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.

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.
