Forever Knight (1992)

Blind Faith - S3-E5

Plot hole: In a major violation of series canon, this episode ends with the vampire doggie (a silly enough premise to begin with) bringing its owner across, a process previously established as complex enough to be far beyond even the smartest canine's capabilities. (00:40:00)

Black Buddha (1) - S3-E1

Factual error: When the Inca is threatening Tracy in Spanish, the translation subtitles read, "He thinks he has invaded me." They were supposed to say, "_evaded_ me." (Note: This has been corrected in the dvd set released 10/06.) (00:41:00)

Black Buddha (2) - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: When he's rescuing Tracy at the end, Vachon bites Vudu. But when Nick arrives and props up the dying man, there are no marks and no blood on his neck. (00:39:45)

Black Buddha (1) - S3-E1

Revealing mistake: When Nat enters Nick's loft from the lift, the bright lighting reveals that there is no break in the solid floor to allow the movement of a real elevator. (00:36:45)

Forever Knight (1992)

Black Buddha (1) - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: Nick and Tracy find a crying but uninjured baby, the only mortal survivor of the plane crash, in the wreckage. Yet in part 2, Nick tells Urs that Vachon was the only survivor. (00:10:45)

Let That Be Your Last Battlefield - S3-E15

Continuity mistake: The planet Cheron is blue the first two times we see it on the view screen, but when the Enterprise enters orbit, and every time we see it thereafter, the planet has mysteriously turned red. (00:44:05 - 00:46:00)

The Yellow Scarf Affair - S1-E17

Plot hole: The typewriter case containing the secret plans is said to be boobytrapped with nitroglycerine. If dropped, says the Thrush agent, it "could blow us all up." Yet it survives a plane crash intact and is later wielded as a club several times in the cavern fight scene, and somehow it never explodes. (00:43:05)

Star Trek (1966)

Let That Be Your Last Battlefield - S3-E15

Revealing mistake: Due to the use of stock footage once again, Sulu's console viewer appears and disappears repeatedly throughout the episode. (00:08:45)

Whom Gods Destroy - S3-E14

Audio problem: Just as Garth brings Spock back and releases Kirk from the cell, "inviting" them to dinner, there's an odd buzzing/rattling noise in the audio that shouldn't be there. (00:11:30)

Star Trek (1966)

Let That Be Your Last Battlefield - S3-E15

Revealing mistake: Because stock special effects footage was used, the shuttle supposedly "stolen from Starbase 4 two weeks ago" is plainly marked "Galileo, NCC 1701/7, USS Enterprise." (00:02:15)

Star Trek mistake picture

Let That Be Your Last Battlefield - S3-E15

Revealing mistake: Stock footage strikes again when Kirk orders the red alert. A shot of the bridge and view screen, with Kirk standing in front of his chair, once more switches Kirk out for a stand in, and Chekhov has gone and is replaced by what looks like from behind like a young woman or a man with a long neck. Also the central display between navigator and helm is now different from that earlier. (00:11:15)

Whom Gods Destroy - S3-E14

Continuity mistake: As Garth brings in the chair and orders the governor's torture, the pedestal fruit bowl on the table in front of Kirk keeps moving back and forth in relation to him and to the wine pitcher. (00:22:40)

Star Trek (1966)

Whom Gods Destroy - S3-E14

Continuity mistake: When Scott orders Sulu to fire phasers to punch through the force field, the two phaser beams are diverging when they leave the ship, but converging somehow (space mirrors?) when they strike the planet. (00:41:20)

Star Trek (1966)

Whom Gods Destroy - S3-E14

Continuity mistake: After Marta's dance, Kirk and Spock are sitting an inch apart behind the table, then a foot apart, then an inch again and so forth every time the shot changes. (00:16:25)

Star Trek (1966)

Whom Gods Destroy - S3-E14

Continuity mistake: When Garth forces Kirk to kneel at his feet, Kirk's hands are extended palms down, then palms up, then palms down again as the camera angles change. (00:34:20)

Whom Gods Destroy - S3-E14

Revealing mistake: When Marta kisses Kirk, her hands leave green make-up smeared all over the left shoulder and back of his uniform tunic. (00:22:05)

Star Trek (1966)

Whom Gods Destroy - S3-E14

Other mistake: At the end, Kirk teases Spock twice specifically about letting himself be hit on the head in order to determine which Kirk was genuine. But the phony Kirk never hit Spock on the head. He merely pushed Spock over and attacked the real Kirk. Clearly, the action sequence wound up differing from the scripted dialogue, and no one noticed. (Also clearly, Kirk is not speaking metaphorically here.) (00:45:30 - 00:49:20)

Star Trek (1966)

Elaan of Troyius - S3-E13

Revealing mistake: During the battle scene, the use of special effects stock footage of the view screen, as seen over the helm from the opposite side of the bridge, briefly turns the short, brunette Ensign Chekov into a tall, thin blond guy. (00:44:20)

Blood Money - S2-E17

Trivia: Series soundtrack composer Fred Mollin appears behind Nick and Janette in a nightclub scene here, but didn't know he'd been set up for a practical joke when a sparsely clad female extra began passionately kissing him. The kiss became so personal, in fact, that it had to be removed from the final cut. Fred & friend are still in the scene, albeit sans kiss. (00:16:15)

Forever Knight (1992)

Blood Money - S2-E17

Continuity mistake: When Nick and Schanke begin interrogating Sean, the tape recorder on the desk isn't running. It's going a few shots later, though, even though no one's touched it to turn it on. (00:30:30)
