Factual errors 

The Eminians attack the Enterprise with a sonic weapon. However, sonics would not be effective against an orbiting starship, as the vacuum of space (or high atmosphere) would not conduct sonic energy.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

Ambassador Fox and his aide beam down to the planet even though the "Enterprise's" deflector screens are up - it was stated that transport could not take place under those conditions. However, Mr Scott had moved the Enterprise further out into space, in a wider orbit, where sonic disruption was impossible. The locals even acknowledged that they could not attack the ship. Therefore, it is reasonable that screens could be opened briefly for transport.

Plot holes 

Ambassador Fox insists on making contact with Eminiar 7, even after the government there tells the Enterprise to leave. This is a clear violation of General Order One (commonly called the Prime Directive), and while the Federation diplomatic corps is a civilian agency and not part of Starfleet, the Federation civilian government presumably holds by the same philosophies as its military.

Continuity 

When Spock rescues Ambassador Fox from a disintegration chamber, the door to the chamber is opened. As they back away to destroy it, the door is immediately closed. (Obviously stock footage of the first chamber destruction.)
