The reputation of the end-result was as different as night and day, when compared to the preceding film. ''The Voyage Home'' had been a hit that enjoyed great commercial success and reignited the faith in ''Star Trek'' as a franchise, causing the green-lighting of ''[[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration The Next Generation]]''. ''The Final Frontier'', on the other hand, while starting out with highest opening gross of any ''Star Trek'' film, quickly plummeted in its ticket sales, was received negatively both by fans and critics and, according to its producer, "nearly killed" ''Star Trek'' as a film franchise.

* MundaneMadeAwesome: Only an actor of Creator/LeonardNimoy's caliber could turn the line "Damn, you ''[[TranquilFury will]]'' try" from a fairly standard PrecisionFStrike into one of Spock's [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome greatest lines]] in the franchise. Guess he got the hang of those "[[ContinuityNod colorful]] [[Film/StarTrekIVTheVoyageHome metaphors]]" after all.

* TravelingAtTheSpeedOfPlot: We're told that no ship can survive the journey through the barrier, which lies at the center of the universe. Not that the laws of physics apply to ships with awesome names, like ''Enterprise''.

Now it should be noted the [[{{Misblamed}} movie's failings aren't all Shatner's fault]]. We can also thank ExecutiveMeddling for all the forced "humor" and the [[TVStrikes 1988 WGA strike]] for short-circuiting the screenwriting, and the infamous SpecialEffectFailure was due to [=ILM=] being too busy [[Film/GhostbustersII with]] [[Film/TheAbyss a]] [[Film/BackToTheFuturePartII few]] [[Film/{{Willow}} other]] [[Film/IndianaJonesAndTheLastCrusade projects]] to work on the film.

* GodTest: Kirk asks why God would have need of a starship. "God" zaps him and then Spock to prove his power, but abandons the pretense when this fails to sway them.

* GodTest: Kirk asks why God would have need of a starship. "God" zaps him and then Spock to prove his power, but abandons the pretense when this fails to sway them. Also serves to demonstrate [=McCoy=]'s bravery: he's the oldest of himself, Spock and Kirk, and has just seen his two closest friends felled by energy blasts that were (judging from Kirk's reaction) incredibly painful, yet he faces "God" down without hesitation.
-->'''"God":''' Do ''you'' doubt me too?
-->'''Bones:''' I doubt ''any'' god who inflicts pain for his own pleasure!



* HollywoodToneDeaf: Of the three schlubs failing to sing "Row, Row, Row Your Boat" in sync, Kelley's singing got him into acting, Nimoy [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leonard_Nimoy_discography recorded a few albums]], and... [[Creator/WilliamShatner oh]]. Well, okay, ''one'' of them has an excuse. At least Spock is in tune.

On the other hand, this may be one of the few times that Shatner actually tried to carry a tune instead of his typical spoken word "singing."

** One of the only times that Spock gets genuinely angry (even if only momentarily), and also goes to show the depth of his feelings toward Kirk.

** For all that the movie gets wrong, it pulls one of the best of these in the franchise's history. One of the only times that Spock gets genuinely angry (even if only momentarily), and also goes to show the depth of his feelings toward Kirk.

* FanDisservice: 57 year old Nichelle Nichols doing a nude fan dance. And bizarrely, all evidence is that Shatner genuinely thought this would be plain old {{Fanservice}}.

* ContinuityNod: The last line in ''Star Trek IV'' was Kirk saying "Let's see what she's (the ''Enterprise -A'') got." Scotty's opening log in this movie says as he complains about the shape the new ship is in, "The captain said 'Let's see what she's got', and we found out, now, didn't we!"

** When Kirk, Spock, and Bones are back at the campsite at the end of the movie, Spock can be seen playing a Vulcan harp, a nod to [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries the original series]] where he played the instrument in several episodes.

* SpaceClothes: Still {{Averted}} by the Starfleeters, and not just because of the "monster maroon" uniforms. During the attack on Paradise City, they wear darker uniforms that are more practical for nighttime and desert operations. And while on shore leave, they wear civilian clothes that wouldn't raise any late 20th or early 21st century eyebrows.
