* TheWorfEffect: Appropriately enough, the Klingons are on the receiving end at the very beginning of the film. Three Birds of Prey get insta-disintegrated by V'Ger to showcase how powerful V'Ger is.

* ClosestThingWeGot: Decker is made Science Officer after Sonak's death, since no one else with the right qualifications is familiar with the ''Enterprise'' redesign. Spock shows up to resolve that issue later on.



* CriticalStaffingShortage: After Sonak suffers from a TeleporterAccident, Kirk has Decker find him another Science Officer, Vulcan if possible, but is informed that Sonak happened to be the last qualified applicant on the planet (in the sense that no one else is familiar with the ''Enterprise'' redesign). Kirk presses Decker into the role since they're on a tight schedule.



* DisintegratorRay: V'Ger's main weapon digitizes whatever it hits, storing an exact duplicate in its databanks. Three Klingon ships and the Federation monitoring outpost fall victim to it. ilia is vaporized by a scaled down version used by V'Ger's probe.

* RidiculouslyHumanRobots: Probe!Ilia is a perfect mechanical reproduction of the real Ilia, down to the smallest bodily functions.
* RobotGirl: Probe!Ilia. And intentionally or not, she strongly resembles the machine-man from ''Film/{{Metropolis}}''.

** Two crew members suffer a hideous death at the hands of a malfunctioning transporter. Kirk's response is a flat, affectless 'Oh my God.' without a change of expression. Particularly startling when it comes from LargeHam Creator/WilliamShatner.

** When the transporters malfunction on the ''Enterprise'', Janice Rand lets out a hushed and horrified "Oh, no; they're ''forming''." The "Oh, Crap"s continue when Kirk and Scotty realize Starfleet finally got them back and not in one piece.
*** Or both in one piece. As in, one body...

** The novelization also reveals the identity of the female transporter accident victim, as well as why Chekov and Sulu suddenly get goofy around the bald chick (females of her species can emit pheromones that make males want to mate with them).
