* The moment that tall, darkly shadowed figure appears at Kirk's door, throws back his hood -- and it's Sarek. Moment of Awesome for Spock's dad, and an OhCrap one for Kirk.
* Pretty much the entire Stealing the Enterprise sequence.

** ''Double'' awesome not often remembered: Kirk attempted to ''[[TakeMyHand pull Kruge]] [[SaveTheVillain to safety]]'' despite him having Kirk's son executed less than an hour earlier. Kruge instead chose to be a dick, and an ''incompetent'' dick at that - he couldn't even [[TakingYouWithMe Take Kirk With Him]] properly despite the entire planet collapsing beneath their feet. Manliness, thy name is Kirk, and [[KarmicDeath we ALL... have HAD... enough of YOU, Kruge!]]

** This one deserves a CMOA on a meta level as well, since GeorgeTakei was opposed to the scene where Sulu is called 'Tiny'. It wasn't until he saw the finished print that he finally admitted that the scene was one of Sulu's finest moments.
* Uhura's part in the plan - she takes a posting at an out of the way transporter station, paired with an obnoxious young officer, then, when Kirk and company enter, she pulls a phaser on him and makes him get in the closet.
** Like the above instance with George Takei, Nichelle Nichols was initially upset at how little she had in the script until she actually read the part and loved what she got to do with that little.
** Given the time and circumstances in which the original TV show existed, Uhura was intrinsically awesome just by being an indispensable crew member on the bridge who happened to be a black woman. Whoopi Goldberg cites seeing Uhura on TV as a life-changing moment for her - and that was undoubtedly echoed in the minds of millions of other young people at the time. Giving her a bad-ass action moment here may have been long overdue, but it comes as no surprise that she's more than capable of handling herself.

* TheReveal of the ''Excelsior''. Her first time out of the gate might've been an EpicFail, but she would go on to be a vital part of the Trekiverse, not to mention one of Starfleet's most utilized designs.
