The Enterprise Incident - S3-E2

Audio problem: During the scene where Kirk is talking in the briefing room, the director was obviously not pleased with how James Doohan said his lines. Due to budget constraints, instead of re shooting the scene, they simply replaced Mr Scotts dialogue with another one. You can see it since at one point his lips are completely out of sync, even on the remastered edition. (00:06:40)

The Tholian Web - S3-E9

Audio problem: Spock uses the intercom to call Mr. Scott who is in engineering. As the shot cuts to a side view of Scotty standing at the controls, he answers "Scott here" but his mouth or lips never move. (00:44:24)

Charlie X - S1-E3

Audio problem: When Uhura apologizes to Spock for interrupting him playing his instrument, her word is cut off mid speak between cuts. She says "I'm sorr-." But it's close enough it easily got past the editor or the editor cut her word off too soon not realizing. (00:09:59)

Miri - S1-E9

Audio problem: After McCoy gives orders for equipment, the Communications officer calls for Kirk. As he goes to answer, Kirk flips open his communicator, but it doesn't make the familiar sound.

Who Mourns for Adonais? - S2-E2

Audio problem: At the temple, as Kirk goes to call the ship, he flips the communicator to open it, as he usually does. However, he has to flip it twice to get it to open, but the sound of the channel opening is heard from the second he starts.

The Man Trap - S1-E2

Audio problem: As Kirk low crawls behind some boulder and grass, his communicator flips open and closed. If it was opened, the sound of the channel opening should have been heard, but wasn't. (00:36:35)

Miri - S1-E9

Audio problem: As McCoy scans the body, the scanner portion spins. Suddenly, it stops motion, but McCoy continues passing it over the body, and sounds continue to be heard.

The Tholian Web - S3-E9

Audio problem: When Chekov goes berserk on the bridge, he emits a scream and shoves Spock. When Spock holds Chekov's face, the closeup on Chekov shows a scared look, and the original scream is played again, but Checkov's mouth doesn't match.

Tomorrow is Yesterday - S1-E20

Factual error: Towards the end of the show the Enterprise is leaving Earth orbit and heading towards the sun. We see the Earth diminish and the moon appear looking exactly as it does from Earth. From this angle we should be seeing the "dark side" of the moon, which looks completely different. (00:40:50)

Journey to Babel - S2-E10

Amanda: And you, Sarek, would you also say thank you to your son?
Sarek: I don't understand.
Amanda: Well, for saving your life.
Sarek: Spock acted in the only logical manner open to him. One does not thank logic, Amanda.
Amanda: Logic, logic - I'm sick to death of logic! Do you want to know how I feel about your logic?
Spock: Emotional, isn't she?
Sarek: She has always been that way.
Spock: Indeed? Why did you marry her?
Sarek: At the time, it seemed the logical thing to do.

What Are Little Girls Made Of? - S1-E8

Question: When the Enterprise is in orbit, it uses the Impulse engines to maintain orbit. The Impulse engines are located on the back (aft) of the primary saucer. Why were these not on or lit up? Unless they're using gravity, but there are the familiar engine sounds.

Movie Nut

Chosen answer: If they're in orbit, they're being pulled along by the planet's gravity well, therefore, impulse engines would only be used for minor corrections and would be "on standby" while in orbit, but not active. (Like keeping your car idling without revving the engine and creating plumes of exhaust).
