Goofs

At the beginning, Spock says that the ship's sensors did not pick any life forms on the planet. A few minutes later Flint says that his planet is shielded from outsiders. Once inside Flint's home, Kirk communicates with Scotty on the ship and tells him to do a full scan of Flint. How is this possible if the planet is shielded and the sensors can't pick up life forms?
