Star Trek (1966)

The Tholian Web - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: When Kirk is being beamed aboard near the end, the crewman operating the transporter has a single lieutenant's stripe. But in the close-up of his hands on the controls, the stripe changes into the braid of a lieutenant commander. (00:46:40)

Close Call - S2-E25

Continuity mistake: In the establishing shot of the epilogue, it's 9:10 on the clock outside the station. But in the very next shot, it's 7:10 on the clock inside. (00:42:20)

Queen of Harps - S2-E19

Trivia: As Nick and Schanke are leaving the station, Nick turns back to give a handcuffed suspect being wrestled in the door by a cop a "where have I seen that guy before?" look. This was an in-joke: the collared criminal was series star Geraint Wyn Davies' brother. (00:19:40)

For the World is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky - S3-E8

Continuity mistake: Natira orders the landing party to kneel before the oracle. Spock does so about a foot-and-a-half to McCoy's left. As the shots change, Spock "jumps" to McCoy's immediate side, then back to his original position, etc. (00:10:35)

The King of Knaves Affair - S1-E13

Factual error: Supposedly engraved on a ceremonial sword is the wrong date - 1443 - for the fall of Constantinople. That happened in 1453. (00:33:15)

The King of Knaves Affair - S1-E13

Revealing mistake: Illya's stunt double during the balcony fight is painfully obvious: his face and bad wig are visible throughout the scene. (00:18:15)

Is There in Truth No Beauty? - S3-E5

Revealing mistake: During the fight in engineering, Marvick's kick, throwing one of the engineering crewmen violently back against the wall, misses by an obvious mile. (00:20:10)

For the World is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky - S3-E8

Continuity mistake: Kirk calls Scott to beam up, and lowers the communicator from his face as he looks at McCoy. In the next shot, he's holding it to his mouth once more. The shot changes one more time, and it's lowered again. (00:31:55)

Spectre of the Gun - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: When Chekov sits outside the general store chatting with Sylvia, his left arm and her right alternate from entwined to un-entwined and back again as the shots change. (00:27:40)

Day of the Dove - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: In the opening scenes, Sulu's retractable viewer isn't there when the Klingon ship approaches on the view screen. But a moment later in a closer shot, the viewer is suddenly in front of him, fully extended. (00:01:05)

Beyond the Law - S2-E13

Plot hole: At the end, Nick and Schanke discuss the bruise Nick's blow supposedly left on Damir's jaw. But Nick didn't hit Damir. He grabbed and tossed him bodily into a trash heap in the alley - without ever once touching his jaw. (00:41:50)

Curiouser & Curiouser - S2-E22

Revealing mistake: After Nick demands to be told what's going on, LaCroix leaves - but his reflection remains in the mirror for a few seconds after we hear the sound effect of his flying away. (00:28:45)

Amateur Night - S2-E12

Continuity mistake: It's 9:10 a.m. outside the police precinct station, and after a 4-minute interview scene with no time lapses, it's 2:55 p.m. inside. (00:21:50 - 00:25:10)

The Neptune Affair - S1-E11

Revealing mistake: Every time the villains' deadly gas, "hydro," is mentioned, the word is badly and very obviously dubbed in, and doesn't match what the actors' lips are saying. This occurred because the original name used, "freon," turned out to be an existing (and patented) refrigerant gas, so the name had to be changed to avoid a trademark lawsuit. (00:28:45)
