**Considering that Vulcans do not lie and Spock is not a regular Vulcan, is one of the most well-respected officers of the Federation, is very likely that his testimony does holds in court, especially a martial one. Should be remember that in this universe the judicial system probably adapted to include alien cultures and biologies. That and sole testimonies are not enough in court anyway, there is also need for other corroborative evidences which, as stated before, probably are plenty.

** And that's what seems to have happened. For Picard's time the Klingon seem not to have subject species anymore and by the Dominio War the issue that the Klingon invaded Cardassia is deal not only as a political scandal but also as "returning to the old ways", if the Klingon kept dominated planets than their invasion to Cardassia wouldn't be such an incident.

*** What good is saving the galaxy if you don't look stylish doing it? After they save the president Scotty, Kirk, and Sulu are clearly posing for a group photo as they receive the applause of the delegates.

*** Even if he could, what's the reason why he did it? Did he think he needed to look presentable when saving the president?

** Maybe he had the transporter change his clothes for him? He is a miracle-worker after all.

[[folder: We have to save the president, but first let me change my clothes!]]
* When working on the engine rooms during the battle with Chang, Scotty was wearing a uniform with a vest as opposed to the standard red jackets everyone else is wearing. He also wore a command white turtleneck. However when the crew beams down to save the president, Scotty's wearing the standard uniform with a gold engineering turtleneck. So, did Scotty take the time to change uniforms before beaming down, despite the fact that the president's life and the fate of the Galaxy were at stake? And when the crew returns to the bridge at the end, Scotty's back in the vest.

** When a military decides to stop supporting a particular model or class of vehicle then it decommissions all of them regardless of age, it works out logistically easier. The UK, for example, when it decided to cease supporting its "Nimrod" aircraft fleet in 2011 had aircraft that were brand new and had never even been flown scrapped. This [[http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/mobile/magazine-12281640 BBC article explains the decision]] most of which probably applies to Starfleet too. In particular Starfleet is moving to a new paradigm based around the Excelsior class which will supplant the Constitution class, there is no justification for keeping the Constitutions on the books and having to provide two different service and support schedules for them, it is just easier to scrap them all and move wholesale to the new design requirements.

** The problem lies between the original script and what you see on screen in Star Trek 4. The Enterprise-A is meant to be the USS Yorktown with a different name - if you listen to the dialogue it gets heavily damaged by the whale probe and presumably needed to be returned to spacedock during Kirk's trial (which probably took days or weeks to set up despite what it looks like in the film). It also explains why the Enterprise was such a piece of garbage during Star Trek 5. With this in mind we can suppose that the Yorktown was seven years younger than the original Enterprise given how that was being decommissioned in Star Trek 2.
