* ArtisticLicenseHistory: The story that the word "sabotage" comes from Luddites throwing their wooden ''sabot'' shoes into the machinery during the Industrial Revolution is, alas, most likely apocryphal. This is a popular folk etymology, though.

* 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.

* InvisibilityFlicker: Klingon warships have to decloak before they can fire. [[spoiler:Except Chang's.]] Even then, said exception briefly does it every single time it fires a torpedo.

* NiceJobFixingItVillain: Kirk and [=McCoy=] wouldn't have been able to escape Rura Penthe if not for the villains' plot to [[TrickedIntoEscaping engineer an escape attempt]] to have an excuse to kill them.
