* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Both inverted and possibly played straight. While the obvious inversion is [[RememberTheNewGuy Sybok]], who is revealed to be Spock's half-brother, we later have Kirk note he had a brother once, who he lost and was lucky enough to come back, referring to Spock's resurrection. However, the way Kirk says this sounds like he's forgotten he actually ''did'' have a brother who was lost, (George Kirk Jr), who was killed back in the classic series.
** Actually, Kirk is telling Spock how he was able to reconcile his brother's death, saying, "Would you like to hear about how I got him back?" The unspoken method: memory and tribute.



** It's a ''round'' of "Row, Row, Row Your Boat". You're ''supposed'' to stagger the lyrics from singer to singer.



** On the contrary, he forces people to bring old pain they've repressed out into the open. "By making you face your pain and draw strength from it. Once that's done, fear cannot stop you." It's no wonder the Vulcans exiled him; on a planet full of Tuvoks, he must have been like a Neelix running around trying to get everyone to emote.

* TheAlcoholic: Well, Korrd who is DrowningMySorrows, but everyone in the film is boozing it up, from the Big Three during their camping trip to the end party.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: Klaa destroying ''Pioneer 10'' ForTheEvulz. It's never mentioned that [[ScienceFictionWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale he would've had to enter deep into the Earth system to find it]].

** Sending a barely functioning, untested ship with [[CriticalStaffingShortage "less than a skeleton crew"]] into a hostage situation when it doesn't even have functioning transporters. This is so the ''Enterprise''-A doesn't simply beam up the hostages and end the movie in five minutes. A {{hand wave}} was attempted by saying there were other ships around, but only Kirk had the experience. By that logic, they could have just sent a working ship to ''meet'' Kirk. Starfleet could have simply assumed, that a hostage situation wouldn't need a fully functioning ship but as the admiral giving the assignment admits, Klingons are likely to send their men too and they consider Kirk [[TheDreaded their mortal enemy.]] and as it turns out, Klaa is going there solely so he can start a fight with a Federation ship. Even ''Kirk'' thinks the reasoning is bullshit.

Even ''Kirk'' thinks the reasoning is bullshit. Then again, [[WhatCouldPossiblyGoWrong it's just a hostage negotiation]]; Starfleet is probably sending Kirk because they think it's insignificant work his half-functioning ship can more than handle.

* CrapsackWorld: The Planet of Galactic Peace. As is pointed out by many reviewers (including {{SFDebris}}), Nimbus III neatly scuttles Roddenbery's tenets regarding the future: the planet set aside for the mutual cooperation of three races has fallen into anarchy, the technology of the future has turned to [[UsedFuture rusted crap]], and poverty is still rampant.
