** Also InUniverse, in TNG's "Unification: Part II", [[ProductionForeshadowing which was meant to promote this film]], Spock tells Picard that because of how badly negotiating peace with Klingons almost went during this film, [[ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight he opted to take matters into his own hands trying to negotiate unification between the Vulcans and Romulans]]. With Gowron's assassination and Kirk and [=McCoy=] almost getting executed, Spock was unwilling to risk anybody's life but his own.

** Chekov, the goddamn chief of security, needs the youngster Valeris to tell him that firing a phaser on full power will set off an alarm on the ship. The scene would have worked fine with Chekov explaining it to Valeris instead of Valeris to Chekov; why they chose to do it the way they did is mystifying.

* PlotInducedStupidity: So, Commander Uhura, veteran communications officer and linguist extraordinaire, ''never bothered to learn the common language of one of the galaxy's major powers?''
** Nichelle Nichols brought this up but director Nicholas Meyer shot her down. Being an avid fan of literature, Meyer wanted to show books on a starship. So, yeah. Her exasperated look after closing the communication was probably a case of ThrowItIn, as she was apparently not pleased at all about this scene.
** Alluded to in ''Film/StarTrekIntoDarkness'', where the alternate Uhura states that her Klingon is good, but not ''[[MyHovercraftIsFullOfEels great]]''.
** It was explained in the movie with a throw-away line of how the Klingons would recognize the UniversalTranslator, but this makes even less sense than using the books.

** The unbelievably stupid plan to get Kirk and [=McCoy=] out of the way (even though it would seem they already are out of the way, in an inescapable prison). Have Martia verify they have a way off the surface once outside the beaming shield, then help them get outside the beaming shield and wait. When the assassins arrive they spend some time gloating and are then caught completely off guard when Kirk and [=McCoy=] beam away in front of their eyes. ''Of course'' Kirk and [=McCoy=] have a way to beam up; they wouldn't be there if they didn't! The plan simultaneously depends on, and completely fails to anticipate, them having a way to beam up. How is that even possible? Simple: the plot needs Kirk and [=McCoy=] back on the ''Enterprise'', so the bad guys are obliged to [[NiceJobFixingItVillain help]].

* KirkSummation: Happens one last time. [[BluffingTheMurderer Kirk and Spock set a trap]] for TheMole on the ''Enterprise'' sabotaging peace talks between the Klingon Empire and the Federation. Spock sees it's Valeris.
