The reasons for are noted in the novelization.novelization -- St. John Talbot severely screwed up while trying to negotiate an Andorian hostage situation, which rapidly turned into a massacre; Korrd fell out of favor with the Klingon High Command after he advocated pursuing peace with the Federation; and Caithlin Dar couldn't get any better position than Nimbus III due to her facing discrimination for having a human grandfather.

** The first time the film was referenced, directly or indirectly by '''any''' other canon ''Star Trek'' material didn't come until ''Film/StarTrekBeyond'', and even then didn't go any further than the Kelvin timeline's Spock looking at a photograph of the crew on this film's ''Enterprise''-A bridge.

* AFormYouAComfortableWith: When they meet God, God cycles through a bunch of depictions of deities, eventually settling on bearded God as something he believes they'll be comfortable with. After his true nature is revealed, he takes the form of Sybok to mock him.

* WorthyOpponent: Klaa feels this way about Kirk, since of course Kirk's battles with the Klingon Empire are legendary. He's not even vindictive about it. He's more excited at facing off against such a foe. When Kirk outsmarts him by getting the shuttle into the ''Enterprise'' and then it going to warp right under Klaa's nose, after giving the order to track the ship, a wide-eyed Klaa murmurs "He's ''good''."

With a brand-new ''Enterprise'', Kirk and crew set out to resolve a hostage situation only to discover that they've been suckered as part of a grander scheme by Spock's [[LongLostRelative long-lost half-brother Sybok]]. Sybok commandeers the ''Enterprise'', winning over most of the crew by using his {{Telepath|y}}ic EpiphanyTherapy on them. After gaining control of the ''Enterprise'' Sybok makes them set a course for the [[ScifiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale center of the galaxy]], where he believes {{God}} is waiting. With the bulk of his crew now working against him, Kirk must work his way up the ''Enterprise'' to the bridge armed with his wits and a pair of rocket boots. Ultimately he fails to retake the ship in time to be of good, so he continues on to discover what lies at the heart of the galaxy.

When the protagonists find God he's apparently imprisoned there, and tries to trick them into helping him escape. A subversion, because Kirk figures out there's something funny going on and manages to get "God" to reveal his true evil nature before he gets away.

* FixFic: Every adaptation of this film has made significant changes to the storyline in order to fix some of the more glaring plot holes. The novelization, for instance, has Sybok using his knowledge of engineering and spatial anomalies to make the trip to the galactic core possible, while the comic book written by Creator/PeterDavid adds in a subplot that implies Kirk has never really gotten over the death of his elder brother George (one of the film's most glaring continuity errors is the implication that Kirk never had a brother), and also has Sybok's attempt at EpiphanyTherapy on Spock fail because he'd already resolved the conflict between his Human and Vulcan halves.
