* Minor and paired with Fridge Humor, but after Kirk's fight with the giant alien on Rura Penthe, where he defeats it by kicking it's knees, Martia tells Kirk that "not everyone keeps their genitals in the same place." Kirk asks if there's anything on the subject Martia wants to say, and she just grins. Of course, we find out later she's a shapeshifter. . . she can keep her genitals anywhere she wants!

** And no surprise that a damn good helmsman like Sulu would know how to pick a damn good helmsman for his own ship. They're cut from the same cloth.

** Given that his [[Series/StarTrekDiscovery human foster sister]] is later revealed to have suffered a fall from grace herself (going from a First Officer on the verge of getting her own command to being imprisoned for mutiny), the painting carries quite a bit of potential meaning for Spock.

** The pink blood does introduce a funny bit of FridgeLogic: Do Klingons [[RealMenWearPink consider pink to be a particularly badass color]] the same way humans might describe something as being "blood red"?

** The character arc actually starts with ''Film/StarTrekTheMotionPicture'': Admiral Kirk, Chief of Naval Operations, is chafing at his desk job and wants to get BackInTheSaddle. Unfortunately, he hasn't been in command of a starship for several years, and the ''Enterprise'' isn't the same as it was when he commanded her, thanks to a major refit she underwent. He spends much of that film butting heads with the younger Captain Decker. So the first film has him realizing he's not the same young captain he used to be, the second film has him accepting his mortality, the third and fourth have him defying death by bringing Spock BackFromTheDead and bringing the whales back from extinction to save all life on Earth, the fifth film was kind of a swing and a miss but should have been about how a mortal Kirk deals with the greater universe as a whole, as well as foreshadowing the shifting political tides away from what he knew for much of his life, and the sixth film is about letting go of life-long prejudices and accepting change.

* The disastrous dinner scene is one which is explainable by a number of factors ranging from alcohol to neither side having a real interest in peace except for the Chancellor. However, it becomes FridgeBrilliance when you realize Valeris and Chang were both sabotaging it. The first by providing the Romulan Ale which is a ChekovsGun that allows them to frame McCoy for incomeptence or malice. The second is the fact Chang is a student of Earth culture to the point he knows who Hitler is and quoting him was bound to get a reaction from Kirk. A reaction which would insult Gorkon who would ''also'' get it.

*** Presumably the Universal Translator sounds like Nurse Chapel, like all Federation computers.

*** The movie hints that the Translator has malfunctioned, likely due to sabotage, with the screen blinking over and over, but this is never said in the film.
