The Ultimate Computer - S2-E24

Plot hole: When M-5 destroys the ore freighter, Dr. Daystrom says, "Fortunately, it was only a robot ship." But Daystrom wasn't on the bridge yet when Spock announced that fact. He didn't have any way of knowing that the freighter was unmanned. (00:23:00 - 00:25:05)

The Ultimate Computer - S2-E24

Visible crew/equipment: After M-5 fires on the other starships Daystrom speaks to M-5 about the murders, then when Kirk walks over to Daystrom and tells him the M-5 must be destroyed, the shadow of the moving boom mic is visible over Daystrom. The white tape mark is also visible on the floor near Uhura's chair, where McCoy had been standing earlier. (00:42:15)

The Ultimate Computer - S2-E24

Continuity mistake: During the scene with the ore freighter, there are four closeups of Spock while he's bent over the scope at his station, and in the background behind Spock we can see Kirk and others on the bridge are gone. It also occurs in the earlier scene during the encounter with the two starships. (00:24:00)

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.

Trivia: Gene Roddenberry created the transporter as an easier (and cheaper) way of getting Enterprise crew members onto a planet's surface, rather than landing the ship on the planet.
