Wink of an Eye - S3-E11

Plot hole: Spock plays back a tape of Kirk, McCoy and Compton on the surface of Scallos that no one in the landing party could have recorded. What a coincidence that it's identical to the footage that opened the episode.

All Our Yesterdays - S3-E23

Plot hole: The law officer who arrests Kirk recalls hearing Kirk call the "spirit" Bones. But he wasn't there when Kirk spoke to McCoy. He rushed into the scene several minutes later. If he's lying, how would he know that Kirk used the name Bones? He wasn't there to hear it. Even if he had been, Kirk did not refer to McCoy as Bones in that conversation.

Plot hole: Despite the Romulan ships keeping a close watch on the Enterprise, when they beam the disguised Cpt Kirk over to the Romulan vessel it goes undetected.

The Enterprise Incident - S3-E2

Plot hole: In the conference room, Spock informs Kirk that his theory of a Romulan cloaking device kept the sensors from detecting the ships. However, in S1:E14, "Balance of Terror", they figured out the cloaking device, and how it worked. Unless he was feeding into the deception, Spock shouldn't have had any theory when it was a fact.

Is There in Truth No Beauty? - S3-E5

Plot hole: When the Medusan Ambassador Kollos and Dr. Jones materialize, the latter is wearing a protective visor and Mr. Spock can see that. Spock then mistakenly addresses Dr. Jones as Ambassador Kollos. Spock's suddenly illogical mistake seems odd: why should the Ambassador need to wear a visor? Shortly after, why do both Jones and Spock wear visors while carrying the Ambassador's still closed gasket to his cabin?

The Mark of Gideon - S3-E16

Plot hole: The whole plot centers on the crowded conditions of the planet. The people are literally bumping into each other. Even if they had the blueprints to build a full size model of the Enterprise, there would be no room for it.

Suggested correction: That's actually a plot point of the episode; that they were so desperate for this to work they were willing to sacrifice that much space.

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.
