* ShapeshiftingSquickShapeshiftingSquick: Kirk is a little weirded out when the female alien he slept with shows up as a furry male alien.



* TitleDrop: Subtitle Drop. In the ill-fated [[FantasticRacism dinner scene]], Gorkon proposes a toast to "the undiscovered country," earning bemused stares from the audience as well as the main cast before he explains he meant "the future."
** The cause of the confusion is that within the context of {{Hamlet}}'s speech, "the undiscovered country" is ''death''. Which Spock himself [[LampshadeHanging points out]] in the novelization. Gorkon's counter-argument has a good point. And, considering what happens to Gorkon in his next scene, actually makes quite a bit of [[{{Foreshadowing}} sense]].

** The Klingons deriding the Federation as [[FantasticRacism racist]] and a "[[HumansAreSuperior Homo Sapiens only]]" club, when they themselves seem to have ''no'' [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse non-Klingons]] from worlds within the Empire serving in the IKF? At most, you could argue that the Klingons make no pretensions about their Klingon supremacy.

* DeadlyEnvironmentPrison: The underground Klingon labor camp Rura Penthe where Kirk and [=McCoy=] are imprisoned has nothing preventing prisoners from escaping--except the extreme cold and storms of the surface, where death by exposure would be a certainty. In fact, prisoners are threatened with expulsion to the surface if they don't work.

*** The shot where Spock speculates on the Bird-of-Prey's weakness is from the exact same angle as the one where he speculates on Khan's [[TwoDimensionalSpace "two-dimensional thinking"]].

* CastingGag: [[Film/ToKillAMockingbird Brock Peters]] plays an anti-Klingon racist.
** Brock actually had problems doing Cartwright's anti-Klingon rant during the classified meeting because it was morally unpleasant for him personally. Multiple takes had to be done and pieced together. (That is, he had problems getting the lines out. According to the DVD, he was supportive of the message itself.)
*** This was at least partially a coincidence, as Brock had already played Admiral Cartwright earlier in the film series.
** A bit of one with Christopher Plummer, a [[{{Understatement}} respected]] Shakespearian actor as the Shakespeare-quoting Chang.
