* DoctorJerk: The surgeon who was about to operate on Chekov was justifiably upset about [=McCoy=] and Kirk intruding into the operating room, but there was no need for him to insult Dr. [=McCoy's=] credentials.

* NoEndorHolocaust: We never do find out what happened to the crew of the Saratoga, or the other ships that the probe disabled en route to Earth. Who knows how many, if any, survivors there were on the ships where the life support was barely functioning, and the crew had to watch their emergency power run lower... and lower. However, one captain mentions attempting to jury-rig a solar energy collector to restore power to life support, and Starfleet crews in general are expected to be resourceful. WordOfGod {{Jossed}} the idea that they died, and the novelization mentions in passing that the captain of the ''Saratoga'' managed to save her crew.

* WellDoneSonGuy: Spock and Sarek.Sarek, by human standards anyway. To a Vulcan, the two were all but weeping ManlyTears and bear hugging each other.

** Later, Kirk is seen looking at a newspaper machine, but only to confirm that the time period still has a currency-based economy and they will need to acquire some money in order to complete the mission.

** A {{Downplayed}} example in the pizza joint--Gillian starts tearing up at the thought of saying goodbye to the whales while worrying about their survival in the open sea--and then Kirk gets a call on his "pocket pager." His pathetic attempt to be discreet about it, as well as the dialogue between him and Scotty (including Scotty calling him "Admiral", just like Spock), have Gillian clearly wondering just what the hell she's gotten herself involved in.

** A captured Chekov plays the fool for his captors, escapes despite his phaser malfunctioning (complete with wacky noises), leads the crew of an aircraft carrier on a merry chase to upbeat music - then runs out of carrier and falls onto concrete hard enough to be fatally injured - at least, by 20th century medical standards...

* ListOfTransgressions: After saving the world, Kirk and his crew appear before the Federation Council, with the president reading the list of offenses they committed over the last two movies. Kirk pleads guilty to all of them, and then the president dismisses all but one, using that to demote Kirk to "Captain"--[[{{Unishment which made him very happy]].

* MoodWhiplash: When Gillian starts showing videos of actual whale disassembling. In theaters, the audiences often got ''very'' quiet at this point. Sorta-mimicked in the Novelization, in a way: most of the tour group watch the videos without much trouble, but Kirk and Spock are disturbed to say the least, because to them such violence was uncommon in their century.
