A Private Little War - S2-E19

Revealing mistake: While Nona is struggling with her Villager attackers, the camera tilts just far enough to show, in the distance, a nice (if slightly smoggy) view of buildings, docks and boats in Santa Monica Harbor. (00:45:00)

A Private Little War - S2-E19

Deliberate mistake: After one of the enemy villagers stabs Nona, during the ensuing fight when Kirk does a flying dropkick on a villager, this semi-closeup and the next wide shot are both flipped shots - the leather band is on Kirk's left upper arm, instead of his right. (00:46:15)

A Private Little War - S2-E19

Revealing mistake: Kirk jumps across the burning hot forge to hide from the people approaching him, only problem is that he actually touches the red hot coals with the palm of his hand. Somehow he managed to avoid serious burns. (00:31:15)


Spock: Live long and prosper.
