* AllDesertsHaveCacti: One of the indications of the instability of the Genesis planet is patchwork ecosystems in close proximity; a desert region next door to a lush jungle is visually signified not by expanses of sand but rocky terrain and tall cacti, which look eerily beautiful when snowed upon.

** The malfunctioning transwarp drive of USS ''Excelsior'' sounds like nothing you might hear on a spaceship but instead a misfiring internal combustion engine.

* BrandishmentBluff: After the weapons fire exchange between ''Enterprise'' and the Bird of Prey, Kruge is surprised that his ship hasn't been put away, knowing he'd be heavily out-gunned. Of course, ''Enterprise'' had been hobbled since the Bird of Prey's one disruptor shot took out the automation center keeping it running with its skeleton crew. When Kirk comes on and demands a surrender, Kruge determines it is a bluff, and calls it, countering with the surviving ''Grissom'' crew as hostages.

* TranslationConvention: Bizarrely, the scenes with the Klingons only use it on about half the lines.

* TranslationConvention: Bizarrely, the scenes with the Klingons only use it on about half the lines. [[AllThereInTheManual The Klingon Dictionary]] notes that it was fashion for a time for Klingon officers to speak English to each other when discussing things they didn't want their subordinates to hear.

* SpoilerTitle: The fact Spock is actually still alive isn't confirmed until a ways into the movie; the moment the film's title was announced officially gave away the fact that Spock was returning.



** If you listen to the DVD commentary, Harve Bennett mentions that he really wanted the ''Enterprise'' getting blown up to be a total [[{{HSQ}} shock to the audience]], so he asked the people cutting the trailer together to please, ''please'' omit it from the trailers. What's the first trailer they come back with? "The last voyage of the ''Enterprise''." the FacePalm must have registered on the Richter scale, though it did increase interest in the film from fans who wondered [[LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt if they'd actually do it]].

***Was Kirk asserting that they never take prisoners, or recommending to Saavik to pray for a mercifully quick death? "Prayer, Mr. Saavik, that the Klingons don't take prisoners." It is a bit harsher in hindsight when Saavik is indeed taken prisoner by Klingons only several weeks later.

%%* * WhyIsntItAttacking: See Genre Savvy above.After the ''Enterprise'' and the Bird-of-Prey have their initial exchange of torpedo fire, Kruge wonders why the ''Enterprise'' doesn't press the attack as they have superior firepower. He then figures out that his attack inflicted more damage than he anticipated.
