Eight years after the {{Cancellation}} of the original ''[[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries Star Trek]]'' series, which had gone on to be VindicatedByReruns, Creator/{{Paramount}} Pictures decided to greenlight a SequelSeries, ''Star Trek: Phase II'', to serve as a backbone of a new fourth major television network, with ''Trek'' creator Creator/GeneRoddenberry running the new show. However, within a couple of years, and after substantial pre-production had already gone forward on the new series, Paramount ultimately vetoed the idea of starting a new network, fearing a major cash drainage.

* NoOSHACompliance: A transporter which is on the fritz and not safe for use will apparently still accept incoming transports from another location, rather than letting the sender do all the work. Given they were working on a console which went haywire due to the transport, this could be chalked up to extraordinarily bad timing, though it still raises the question as to why no one told the sender that transport wasn't safe. Kirk, after all, was beamed into an orbiting station and then flown over.
** Starting in this movie and in the rest of the TOS movies, [[http://wrathofdhanprops.blogspot.com/2013/01/the-complete-guide-to-starfleet-style_26.html engineers now had radiation suits]].

* PermissionToSpeakFreely: Decker is outright hostile towards Kirk in plain view of their subordinates, and even more so in private. Kirk looks as though he wants to punch him in the face numerous times, but lets it go as he needs him to guide his command of a ship he no longer recognizes.
** Notably, when they're in private and Decker invokes this trope, Decker does it correctly; he keeps his tone respectful and his comments on point. [=McCoy=] ends up taking Decker's side after Decker leaves.

** After Decker leaves, {McCoy} takes it even further, ripping Kirk a new one. In the theatrical version, he even makes a thinly-veiled threat to declare Kirk medically unfit for command if Kirk doesn't start listening. After {McCoy} lets him have it, Kirk does indeed start to listen.

** A richly-colored rainbow was a very popular motif in the late 70s-early 80s. It was used for everything from [[RainbowBrite children's cartoons]] to a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rainbow/PUSH#National_Rainbow_Coalition Presidential campaign]]. New Age devotees adopted the symbol of the rainbow about this time.
