* CoolAndUnusualPunishment: Literally; his favored method of executing rebellious or lazy prisoners is to have them stripped naked and thrown out onto the surface of Rura Penthe, where they freeze to death in less time than it takes for him to give his big speech to the new arrivals. It's implied that he makes a point of doing this every time new inmates arrive.

The officer in charge of the Rura Penthe penal colony.

* JustBetweenYouAndMe: Decides that since he's about to kill Kirk and [=McCoy=], he can afford to give away the identity of the mastermind behind the conspiracy. In a subversion, he actually gets prevented from doing this by the ''Enterprise'' crew, who beam their crew-mates aboard before he can spill the beans.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: If she ''had'' been Saavik as originally planned, rather then being made into the aforementioned Suspiciously Similar Substitute, it would have been a lot less obvious, and indeed rather shocking, who the traitor on the ''Enterprise'' was. As it is in the finished film, with her being the only new major character on the ''Enterprise''... Well, it isn't like they would have made Spock, Scotty, Uhura, or Chekov the traitor! Process of elimination really only left Valeris as the audience's only suspect.
