Friday's Child - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: In a wide shot of the Capellons and the Klingon walking down the hill, the Klingon trips and falls to the ground and picks himself up. Next shot, tight group with Klingon, he is suddenly brushing off his pants.

Suggested correction: After Kras falls, the next shot you see him still on the ground and starting to stand up, although Maab blocks the view of him. The shot cuts to the rocks and then when it cuts back, you see Kras walk up and stand next to Maab, then he starts to dust himself off.

Suggested correction: Why would he not be doing that in the next shot? There is no continuity issue.

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.

2

Amok Time - S2-E1

Revealing mistake: In the middle of the episode Spock goes to Plack Tao to meditate. We see a shot of him and then we see some other people. At this moment look directly behind all of them and you will see Spock waiting for his next shot.

Assignment: Earth - S2-E26

Revealing mistake: Isis the cat was disinclined to hold still for special effects shots. When Gary Seven beams off the Enterprise with the cat in his arms, the position of her head jumps several inches as they're dematerializing. (00:10:10)

Who Mourns for Adonais? - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: Kyle reports the landing party's whereabouts on the surface, and Spock asks, "And Apollo?" Kirk had no chance to call the ship after Apollo revealed his name - so Spock should not have known it. (00:22:10)

Catspaw - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: When the giant cat breaks down the cell door, Korob falls beneath it face down with his head toward the door. In the very next shot, he's in a completely different position - face up with his feet toward the door. (00:43:30)

Journey to Babel - S2-E10

Continuity mistake: In one scene the Enterprise's phasers were pink instead of blue.

Catspaw - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: Korob uses his wand to put a feast on the table and light the candles. Only, in the very next, close-up shot of him, the feast is gone and the candles are unlit again. Next wide shot, everything is back. (00:20:00)

Assignment: Earth - S2-E26

Continuity mistake: Isis is an all-black cat, but in a few shots, her "stunt double" with white paws can be spotted. The cat lying on the floor of the transporter room when Gary Seven beams aboard is a white-pawed double.

Mirror, Mirror - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: When Kirk sits down to consult the computer, the big green potted plant on the shelf behind him is there in full shots and missing in close-ups. It's much too large to be completely hidden behind him: if it shows up behind his head in full shot, it should show in close-ups, too, but it doesn't. It's not there. (00:16:30)

The Omega Glory - S2-E23

Continuity mistake: At the end, the flag is brought in, and Kirk stands up - but in the next close-up of him, he's sitting down again. Next full shot, he's standing once more. (00:36:25)

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.
