** The StarTrekLostEra novel "Serpents in the Ruins" offers an answer to this - Azetbur wasn't bad or incompetent, just that she continued her father's peace efforts and was killed by more a militaristic faction who believed the Empire had been at peace for too long and were no longer interested in accepting Federation aid. One of her successor's first acts was to simply ban women from serving on the Council, seemingly blaming her gender for her politics.

*** Note that this would also explain the above alteration to the timeline in Yesterday's Enterprise - a militaristic faction coming to power in the Klingon Empire, interested in ending peaceful relations with the Federation, would be impressed by a Federation starship - indeed, not just any Federation starship but the Federation starship Enterprise - sacrificing itself to save a Klingon colony and view them as worthy allies. Without that act, we end up with the war that brought the Federation to the brink of defeat.

** More than minimizing the impact, the helmsman probably also realized that maneuvering in the shockwave and avoiding being drug along with it required opposing thrust from ''Excelsior's'' impulse engines.

** Handwaved in the movie by having Scotty mention that the UniversalTranslator would be recognized, so Uhura had to speak Klingonese in order to fool the listening outpost into thinking that they were a Klingon ship. NichelleNichols had protested this scene (saying that Uhura would have been fluent in the language of their main enemy) but was overruled.
** Mostly, Meyer overruled NichelleNichols for RuleOfFunny

* The painting Spock has in his quarters represents "the expulsion from Eden", what he calls an "old Earth myth." It also represents his silent tribute to [[Film/StarTrekVTheFinalFrontier his brother, Sybok, who searched for ShaKaRee.]]

** In a strange example of [[EnforcedMethodActing]] done by the ''actor'' and not the director, Nichelle Nichols' apparent disgust upon closing the channel seems directed at Nick Meyer, rather than the Morska Listening Post.

* For ''years'', I never realized that the President in ''Film/StarTrekVITheUndiscoveredCountry'' was blind. Suddenly, the opaque pair of glasses he wears when looking at the Operation Retrieve plans make sense: they're an early form of the VISOR. Also, when Kirk dives over the podium and knocks him out of the way of assassin fire, he'd have no idea who did it -- which is why Kirk says to him: "Kirk. ''Enterprise''."
** That one was actually more or less confirmed by [[WordOfGod Michael & Denise Okuda]] in the DVD text commentary for that movie -- he was at least intended to be blind originally.
