* ConspicuousCGI: Mainly conspicuous in that [[UrExample audiences in 1982 hadn't seen anything like it before]]. The sequence in the Project Genesis demonstration video was the very first full computer-animated scene in a film ''ever'', and it actually still looks pretty good after all these years. The computer displays of the ''Enterprise'' and ''Reliant'' were also computer generated vector graphics. It helps that both are InUniverse graphics meant for display and demonstration and not an actual depiction of the subjects.

* TakeAThirdOption: {{Deconstructed}}. See AnAesop above.

* TakeAThirdOption: {{Deconstructed}}. See AnAesop above.When Kirk took the ''Kobayashi Maru'', he failed it twice. Too stubborn to admit to it being unwinnable, he altered the simulation so it would have a winning outcome. The fact that he was [[RefugeInAudcity the first person to ever cheat as such]] got him a commendation. {{Deconstructed}} in that this reflects Kirk's major failing: an unwillingness to accept loss.

Added DiffLines:

* WritersCannotDoMath: Kirk tells Carol "There's man out there I haven't seen in 15 years who's trying to kill me.", which is the real life timespan between "Space Seed"'s original airdate in 1967 and this film' release in 1982. However, "Space Seed" took place in the year 2267, and this film takes place in 2285, which is 18 years apart in the Star Trek universe.

Added DiffLines:

* CrazyPrepared: Starfleet ships come with a prefix code, allowing another ship to access their computer and make commands remotely. Kirk mentions it comes standard for the exact reason they were facing at that moment.


Added DiffLines:

* TheOnlyOne: Kirk mentions they are the only ship in the area and able to investigate Regula One going dark. Not quite as bad as other Trek examples, as at least they were some distance from Earth by the time they got the mission. This also sets up a ClosedCircle-type situation, there was no one else around to help out.

* ExactWords: [=McCoy=] tries to stop Spock from working in the warp core by saying "No human can tolerate the radiation in there!". To which Spock says "[[DeadpanSnarker As you are so fond of pointing out, Doctor, I am Vulcan]].", and soon nerve-pinches [=McCoy=] into submission.

Added DiffLines:

* TimeSkip: ''The Motion Picture'' was set shortly after the end of the original series, despite the fact that it was filmed a decade later. This film advances the chronology to roughly real time, and Kirk had spent a decade as an admiral. This was deliberate, and the passage of time is important for both Kirk and Khan.
