Star Trek

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)

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

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.

The Trouble With Tribbles - S2-E15

Revealing mistake: When Kirk and Spock answer the intercom in the ship's corridor, Spock's uniform has a large brown coffee stain on the front. (This was digitally removed in the DVD release, but is still visible in the newly-syndicated "computer enhanced" version.). (00:17:00)

Who Mourns for Adonais? - S2-E2

Revealing mistake: When Apollo first grows large, the shimmering edge of the special effects matte is visible in the sky just above his right shoulder. (00:13:35)

Mirror, Mirror - S2-E4

Revealing mistake: During the fist fight between the transported crew and Spock, the use of stunt doubles in the wide shot is quite obvious.

A Piece of the Action - S2-E17

Revealing mistake: Kirk has just tripped both of Krako's goons with the radio wire strung across the door. He knocks them both out, grabs a gun and then races out the door - right through the space that should still be strung with the trip wire. (00:25:15)

The Trouble With Tribbles - S2-E15

Revealing mistake: When Kirk finds his position on the bridge occupied by the Tribbles, he calls for Dr. McCoy, and as he arrives, Kirk thrusts some of the Tribbles under his nose. In the shots where Kirk's face is seen, one of the Tribbles he is holding features a visible seam.

Friday's Child - S2-E11

Revealing mistake: In McCoy's video of the Capellans, the weapon thrown at the sapling actually misses it and nails a nearby bush instead. The tree, however, obediently breaks in half and falls over anyway. (00:00:20)

Patterns of Force - S2-E21

Revealing mistake: After being put in the cell, when the camera is in a closeup of Spock, you can see the lines in the prosthetic ears, and can easily tell where the makeup is blended into his real ear.

Catspaw - S2-E7

Revealing mistake: Near the end of the episode, after Kirk has destroyed the orb, we see Korob and Sylvia in their true form. As they move, you can see the black strings used to manipulate the puppets.

A Private Little War - S2-E19

Revealing mistake: While Nona is struggling with her Villager attackers, the camera tilts just far enough to show, in the distance, a nice (if slightly smoggy) view of buildings, docks and boats in Santa Monica Harbor. (00:45:00)

The Gamesters of Triskelion - S2-E16

Revealing mistake: When Kirk goes to kick his opponent, you can see the kick was at least a foot and a half from the man.

The Gamesters of Triskelion - S2-E16

Revealing mistake: When the camera goes in on a close up of the phaser, when the trigger is pulled, the indicator light to signal a reaction by the intended target that's usually too small to be seen or hidden by animation is visible.

Movie Nut

Wolf in The Fold - S2-E14

Revealing mistake: When Mr Hengist goes on the rampage in the hearing room, you can see that the actor playing Hengist is an obvious stunt double wearing a bald cap, whereas John Fiedler has hair on the back and sides.

Bread and Circuses - S2-E25

Revealing mistake: Kirk uses a sword to cleave a Roman guard during his escape from the TV studio, but there is no blood on it. Later, though, when Claudius stabs Merrick in the back, there is blood on the knife blade.

Bread and Circuses - S2-E25

Revealing mistake: Kirk uses a submachine-gun to shoot the lock of the cell holding Spock and McCoy, but no bullet holes appear, nor is the lock damaged.

Scott215

Bread and Circuses - S2-E25

Revealing mistake: A Roman guard empties half a magazine of bullets from his submachine-gun into Flavius, but there are no bullet holes in his body, nor blood on the floor from the wounds inflicted by the bullets.

I, Mudd - S2-E8

Revealing mistake: After making the Alice androids freeze up, Spock returns to Kirk. As he does, look at the rock wall behind him; the seam between the panels is obvious.

Movie Nut

The Changeling - S2-E3

Revealing mistake: A number of times through the episode, the wire holding Nomad up and moving it around is visible. Example: When Nomad first moves off the transporter pad, look directly above it; the black wire can be seen in front on the light over the pad.
