The See-Paris-and-Die Affair - S1-E22

Revealing mistake: The stock footage establishing shot of Paris shows a gray, cloudy, overcast day. But in the next shot, on the streets, it's bright and sunny. (00:01:00)

The Four-Steps Affair - S1-E21

Continuity mistake: In Waverly's office at the beginning, the contemplative Illya's hand is draped over his glasses salute-fashion in wide shot. But in close-up, it's suddenly curled into a fist at the side of his head. Next shot, he's "saluting" again. (00:06:50)

The Four-Steps Affair - S1-E21

Revealing mistake: Solo is driving on a country road through a wooded area with no street lights. So what are all those bright round lights reflecting on the hood and windshield of his car? UFOs? (00:10:10)

Arena - S1-E19

Revealing mistake: At different points during the Metrons' transmission to the Enterprise, both Kirk and the Gorn pop into the picture a few seconds after the rocky landscape appears. (00:37:00 - 00:37:55)

The Way to Eden - S3-E20

Revealing mistake: On the surface of Eden, Spock finds Adam dead under a fruit tree. But the corpse's fingers are still moving. (00:45:20)

The Way to Eden - S3-E20

Revealing mistake: Due to close-ups that were cut in backwards, Kirk appears in reverse, with his uniform insignia on the wrong side, twice in this episode: once in the corridor outside sickbay, and again near the shuttle craft on Eden. (00:18:15 - 00:46:55)

The Way to Eden - S3-E20

Revealing mistake: A re-used sickbay scene taken from an earlier episode causes Nurse Chapel to instantly revert to her old hairdo as the sound waves make her fall unconscious. (00:41:00)

Requiem for Methuselah - S3-E19

Visible crew/equipment: The monofilament line holding M-4 aloft is visible in the lab when the floating robot delivers the processed ryetalyn to McCoy. (00:17:20)

Requiem for Methuselah - S3-E19

Revealing mistake: When Spock examines the unknown Brahms waltz, we get a close-up of the music. Unfortunately, the hand-written score bears no resemblance whatsoever to the piece Spock has just played, though he expressly identifies it as such. (00:19:10)

Forever Knight (1992)

Night in Question - S3-E10

Continuity mistake: The actor playing the bad guy apparently didn't stick to the script. What he says on the phone, telling Tracy where to meet him, and what she writes down for Nick to find later, don't match at all. (00:35:00)

The Lights of Zetar - S3-E18

Continuity mistake: On Memory Alpha, the viewer beside the dead man in the purple jumpsuit keeps moving from his left side to his right and back again between shots. (00:09:10 - 00:10:10)

Shore Leave - S1-E16

Revealing mistake: Stock footage turns the single plane strafing Rodriguez and Angela into two attacking planes for a moment. It becomes one plane again when it flies over Kirk and company. (00:33:40)

Forever Knight (1992)

Night in Question - S3-E10

Plot hole: Because he has no discernible vital signs, the wounded Nick is declared dead in the hospital. When he revives, he's rushed into surgery, where he'd surely have been reattached to a monitor. Somehow, though, no one on the medical staff notices that their patient still has no normal pulse or heartbeat. (00:05:05)

Forever Knight (1992)

Night in Question - S3-E10

Plot hole: When LaCroix arrives at the amnesiac Nick's loft, Nick recognizes him as "the doctor from the hospital." But Nick was still comatose when LaCroix posed as a doctor and came to his room, so he shouldn't remember that particular "doctor." (00:19:45)

Forever Knight (1992)

Night in Question - S3-E10

Factual error: LaCroix visits the comatose Nick in the hospital and detaches a pulse monitor that A) shouldn't be beeping, seeing as it's attached to a vampire, and B) should have immediately sounded an alarm when it was removed. (00:08:30)

That Which Survives - S3-E17

Continuity mistake: When Kirk splits up the landing party, he asks McCoy to further inspect the vegetation. In the two shot, McCoy isn't wearing his tricorder, but in close-up, it's there, strapped over his left shoulder. Cut back to the two shot, though, and it's gone again. (00:10:20)

That Which Survives - S3-E17

Continuity mistake: When Losira appears to D'Amato, he looks up from his tricorder, startled. The shot then changes angles, and D'Amato looks up at her all over again. (00:11:55)

That Which Survives - S3-E17

Continuity mistake: When Mr. Scott asks Watkins to check the bypass valve, Watkins is facing the engineering boards with both hands on the panel. When we cut to a different angle, however, he's suddenly jumped to a position facing Scott with only one hand on the panel. (00:18:35)

Star Trek (1966)

That Which Survives - S3-E17

Continuity mistake: When Losira comes for Kirk, he's holding Sulu's tricorder with both hands. When the angle changes to include her, he has it in one hand with his right hand at his side. Cut back to a three shot of Sulu, Kirk and McCoy, and Kirk has the tricorder in both hands again. (00:36:55)

Forever Knight (1992)

Night in Question - S3-E10

Plot hole: Bullets, which have been passing harmlessly through Nick for two whole seasons, suddenly do him great injury here. And though he's taken to surgery, the bullet lodged in his head is never removed. It's still there on the latest x-ray when LaCroix arrives to "consult" with the doctor. (00:00:05)
