** A failed Batman Gambit exists in the conspirators' original plan. They were banking on Kirk getting gun-happy after Chang got Kronos One back in fighting shape, shooting back and destroying Kronos One. What happens instead? Kirk [[OutOfCharacterMoment surrenders]] in a hasty attempt to defuse the situation. Chang then has to engage in XanatosSpeedChess to compensate.

* WhyDontYaJustShootHim: When the prison warden finds Kirk and McCoy outside, he shoots the shape-shifter who was helping him immediately, but inexplicably agrees to explain who is behind the conspiracy before shooting Kirk and McCoy. This gives them enough time to escape.

* LetThemDie: The trope namer, for when Kirk refuses to help the Klingon.


Added DiffLines:

* MurderByInaction: Kirk refuses to help the Klingon by proclaiming they can just die for all he cares.

* CaliforniaDoubling: Camp Khitomer is The House of the Book performance hall and library building at the American Jewish University, Brandeis-Bardin Campus in Simi Valley, California (best known as the Command Center/Power Chamber from ''Franchise/PowerRangers''). The foreground is the Fireman's Fund Building in Novato, Northern California.



* RecycledSet: The movie, suffering a budget crisis, extensively reuses ''The Next Generation'' sets. The Observation Lounge becomes the Officers' Mess, Ten-Forward becomes the President's Office, and Main Engineering pretends to be Main Engineering from 75 years ago ''whilst looking exactly the same''. Unfortunately ''TNG'' was so wildly popular in 1991, the recycling was very obvious.

* ActuallyPrettyFunny: When asked by Chang to give his [[ExactWords current medical status]], [=McCoy=] makes a quip about feeling pretty good "aside from a touch of arthritis". This is followed by stone-cold silence from everyone except one off-screen Klingon ''[[{{Corpsing}} laughing his frigging ass off]]''. [=McCoy=] seems pleased to have gotten that much. Here is the full quote:
-->'''Chang''': Dr. [=McCoy=]...Would you be so good as to tell me, what is your current medical status?\\
'''Bones''': Aside from a touch of arthritis, I'd say pretty good!\\
(cue lone klingon laughing his ass off. Bones grins at the response, but his face falls when he sees Chang's stone serious expression)\\
({{beat}})\\
'''Chang''': [[DeadpanSnarker You have a singular wit, Doctor.]]

* WeAllLiveInAmerica: As unlikely as it may seem, the Klingon court of the 23rd century is shown to be very similar to American courts of the 20th century, with the accused being questioned publically by the prosecutor and the defense, defense attorney Worf throwing in an "objection!" every now and then and the judge overruling them, etc.

* OnlyOnePlausibleSuspect: Towards the end of the movie we discover [[spoiler:there's a traitor aboard the Enterprise]]. Since the movie has only one major character [[spoiler:among the Enterprise crew who's not a series regular]], it's not very hard to guess who [[spoiler:the traitor]] could be.
