--> '''Chang''' I am constant as the Northern Star...
--> '''[=McCoy=]''': I'd pay real money if he'd shut up!

* GodwinsLaw: Kirk makes a comparison between the Klingon's request for "living space" with Hitler's demands for ''Lebensraum'' at the diplomatic dinner (whilst not being very diplomatic). Needlessly to say, this comparison went down really really badly.

** Sulu has the honor of opening the movie this way.

* {{Deconstruction}}: Of Kirk again. This time, his FantasticRacism makes him an easy FallGuy for Gorkon's assassination.

** Not so much tricked as controlled. Kirk would certainly have attempted escape on his own, but it would have taken time to learn the layout and find his best option.

* {{Homage}}: The speech that the warden gives Kirk and [=McCoy=] upon their entry to Rura Penthe is a paraphrase of Colonel Saito's speech to captured British P.O.W.s in ''Film/TheBridgeOnTheRiverKwai''. For comparison:
-->'''Colonel Saito''': If you work hard, you will be treated well. But if you do not work hard, you will be punished! A word to you about escape. There is no barbed wire, no stockade, no watchtower. They are not necessary. We are an island in the jungle. Escape is impossible. You would die.\\
'''Rura Penthe Warden''': This is the gulag Rura Penthe. There is no stockade. No guard tower. No electronic frontier. Only a magnetic shield prevents beaming. Punishment means exile from prison, to the surface. On the surface, nothing can survive. Work well, and you will be treated well. Work badly, and you will die.

* IWantYouToMeetAnOldFriendOfMine: William Shatner was once Christopher Plummer's understudy. Here they play enemies.


Added DiffLines:

* ShipTease: Very subtly between Spock and Valeris, reflected in their UST-filled nightcap and his emotional response to her betrayal. This is likely a remnant of the original script which was to have the established character of Saavik instead of Valeris (reflecting the fact Spock and Saavik were strongly implied to have mated in Star Trek III and a deleted scene in Star Trek IV had established that Saavik was pregnant with Spock's child; in the ExpandedUniverse novels, Spock and Saavik eventually marry.)

** The Warden's speech is almost a word-for-word paraphrasing of Saito's "There is no escape" speech from ''TheBridgeOnTheRiverKwai''.

** A log entry that Kirk makes early in the movie (about how much he hates Klingons) becomes a ChakhovsGun when it's used against him at his trial.

** Kirk ends the movie by recording his final log entry as captain of the ''Enterprise''.



** In a Captain's Log, Sulu mentions the Excelsior is cataloging gaseous anomalies. Apparently, The Enterprise had been doing the same since they had the equipment on board and used it to track the cloaked Bird of Prey.
