Prescience in medicine that always strikes me...

Spock's Brain isn't the most striking examples of scientific accuracy, and when I was younger I always used to laugh at Spock guiding McCoy through his own brain surgery. Then in recent years, we now get brain surgeons who operate while their patients are conscious, so that they can get feedback on what they are doing.

There was another bit of serendipity, I think it was in Journey to Babel, although my memory is a bit fuzzy. It's a bit of a visual blooper, with McCoy operating on a patient, and you can see smoke rising in camera, presumably from an ill concealed actor's cigarette. Of course now we have medical lasers used in surgical procedures, and smoke is indeed present in some instances.
