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.

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.

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.).

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.

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.

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.

Add time

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.

The Gamesters of Triskelion - S2-E16

Revealing mistake: As the camera does a close up of the Master Thrall, the line of the bald skin cap is visible.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Who Mourns for Adonais? - S2-E2

A Piece of the Action - S2-E17

The Gamesters of Triskelion - S2-E16

Mirror, Mirror - S2-E4

Revealing mistake: In the close up shots of the mirror Sulu, the poor make up job of the scar on his face is very evident.

The Doomsday Machine - S2-E6

Revealing mistake: While Kirk watches, the machine fires at the Enterprise. As Spock is knocked backwards, watch his hands as he goes forward. They automatically go into a certain, almost practiced position. Then a moment later, the Communications officer is reporting to Spock. As she does, another shot hits the ship. She and just about all the crew react to the jolt a second before the camera and lighting crews simulate the hit.

The Doomsday Machine - S2-E6

Revealing mistake: Accounting for some effects being re-done by modern digital formatting, when the Enterprise approaches the drifting Constellation, as it rotates, you can see a star pass through the solid part of the Constellation's saucer.

Friday's Child - S2-E11

Revealing mistake: In the tent after Kirk and friends give up their weapons, there is a small fire in the holder in the center of the room. Although the flames are slightly off center to the camera's left, the are projections of flame light from off the camera's right offscreen.

Friday's Child - S2-E11

Revealing mistake: When the delegation of locals approach Kirk's party, the Red-shirt yells "KLINGON!" and goes to fire. As he moves, you can see the outline of the block the alien weapon will stick in.

Obsession - S2-E13

Revealing mistake: When Kirk and Garrovick are fighting at the end, Kirk knocks him down. As he helps him up, Garrovick leans against a huge boulder and the papier-mache rock moves very noticeably.

The Changeling - S2-E3

Revealing mistake: When Kirk, Spock and McCoy study a diagram that shows various parts of the Nomad probe, the lower right of the diagram reads "Computer Data Banks Recall & Transmition". It should read "Transmission".

Bread and Circuses - S2-E25

Revealing mistake: McCoy is knelt down with the rather comically named Flavious Maximus attacking him. On the remastered version it is obvious it is a stunt double doing the part.

A Private Little War - S2-E19

Revealing mistake: Kirk jumps across the burning hot forge to hide from the people approaching him, only problem is that he actually touches the red hot coals with the palm of his hand. Somehow he managed to avoid serious burns.

Mistakes

Trelane says he studied Earth images that travelled to him at light speed, and earlier they establish Gothos is 900 years from Earth. But Trelane references Napoleon and Hamilton, who weren't around until 1800 or so. That would put this episode in 2700, but the original Trek episodes are set in the 2200's.

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.
