The Changeling - S2-E3

Revealing mistake: When the Enterprise is attacked in the prologue, some of the crew grab onto the central console (that Sulu and Chekov usually sit at). The console noticeably lifts up from the stage surface, almost falling over. Twice.

The Changeling - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: After Spock mind melds with Nomad, Kirk hustles him out into the corridor. In the shots taken from behind Kirk, the Captain's left hand is high on Spock's shoulder. In the reverse angles, his hand is several inches lower on Spock's arm. (00:35:00)

The Changeling - S2-E3

Revealing mistake: A number of times through the episode, the wire holding Nomad up and moving it around is visible. Example: When Nomad first moves off the transporter pad, look directly above it; the black wire can be seen in front on the light over the pad.

Movie Nut

The Changeling - S2-E3

Visible crew/equipment: When Kirk walks into the brig Spock tells him that Nomad has almost human stubbornness, and that its screens are still up, then just as Kirk moves closer to Nomad the shadow of the moving boom mic is visible at the top, left side of the screen. (00:28:15)

Super Grover

The Changeling - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: When Kirk and Spock get to Sick Bay, the doors open to reveal Nomad coming out. But the shot of Nomad coming out is a re-used shot of it coming out of the Turbo Lift, not the Sick Bay, as the nameplate said. (00:42:10)

Movie Nut

The Changeling - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: When Scotty awakens in the sick room after being attacked by Nomad, Nurse Chapel has her hands placed on him. In the next shot, when McCoy tells Scotty to take it easy, Nurse Chapel's hands are no longer on Scotty, and in the next shot, her hands are back on him.

The Changeling - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: When the security team is escorting Nomad back to the holding area, he goes his own way. One of the team then says, "Hey Nomad!" and begins to reach for his phaser. But in the next shot, he has already got his phaser out and trained on Nomad.

Capt. Kirk: Space, the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its 5-year mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before.

I, Mudd - S2-E8

Question: When Kirk and crew neutralized all the androids on the planet, what happened to the androids on the Enterprise running the ship?

Answer: After causing Norman to overload, all of the other androids shut down. The same could be said for the androids on the Enterprise.

Answer: If all the humans beamed down and only Androids were on the ship as Larry Mudd said then how did they get back aboard the Enterprise if all the robots were shut down.
