Added DiffLines:

* InstantSedation: Not this time. It takes about two minutes for Bones' neural paralyzer to take effect, which makes sense as it needs to look like Kirk died in combat, not while taking a breather during halftime.

* CoolOldLady: T'Pau is an ''archetype''. Few television shows ''ever'' have portrayed a woman of such advanced age (according to canon, she's 145, with Celia Lovsky herself being 70 at the time) in such an exalted position of power -- aside from QueenVicky or [[UsefulNotes/HMTheQueen her descendants]]. You're looking at the gal who once told the Federation Council what they could do with their invitation, and who with a simple phone call to Starfleet Command saved Kirk from getting busted down to Spaceman Third Class for his hijacking of the Big E to take Spock home. ''[[NeverMessWithGranny All of Vulcan in one package.]]''

* AccidentalHug [=/=] TheUnHug: Overjoyed that Kirk wasn't KilledOffForReal, Spock grabs him by the arms... and quickly attempts to pretend he didn't when he notices that Chapel and [=McCoy=] are watching.

Added DiffLines:

* ObviousStuntDouble: The fight scene features a stunt double that looks nothing like Creator/WilliamShatner fighting an equally non-Creator/LeonardNimoy-ish stuntman.

* WhenHeSmiles: Spock has the biggest smile ever when he sees that Kirk isn't dead. Not that he'll admit it.

** It's also possible that Kirk could've explained things to Komack in a way that would've gotten him permission to go to Vulcan without letting too much slip. Kirk even had his Chief Medical Officer's statement that Spock would die if he didn't return to Vulcan. He could have implied that it was an illness, but didn't bother to mention it to the Admiral.

** The dialog reveals that ''pon farr'' has a number of effects. Spock explains it in terms of natal homing. On Vulcan, Kirk says ''koon ut kal-if-fee'' is "marriage or challenge" because Vulcans once killed to win their mates. [=McCoy=] says "They still go mad at this time", indicating the involuntary loss of emotional control, not just a mating drive, is the "price".



** Ted Sturgeon's idea was that ''pon farr'' was relieved either by having sex or engaging in mortal combat. This would dissolve the mind link because it would no longer be needed. Spock is cured when he believes he has been in and won a fight to the death.



* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: As in, "life-and-death" serious. Spock loses his temper on a number of occasions and completely forgets about having changed course, despite having immense self-control and an encyclopedic memory.

*** This gets dissected and analyzed in a monumental FanFic series, Jacqueline Lichtenberg's ''[[http://www.simegen.com/fandom/startrek/kraith/ Kraith]]''. In the ''Kraith'' novel ''[[http://www.simegen.com/fandom/startrek/kraith/kc002/kc02_01.html#FEDERATION Federation Centennial]]'', we learn that Vulcan has been trying for decades to get Starfleet to make a new regulation to grant home leave to Vulcans who request it, no questions asked.



** Kara Zedicker, who played young T'Pau, modeled herself closely on Celia Lovsky and said if they'd wanted her to speak with a similar accent she was ready.



* WomanScorned: T'Pring and Spock were bonded at seven. They should have been mated at eighteen - that's right, T'Pring has been waiting ''twenty years'' for her wedding night - instead Spock humiliates her by putting off their consummation and, according to 'Vulcan's Glory' tries to buy her off with money. Is it any wonder she wants him dead?

* YouAreInCommandNow: A somewhat unusual example. Blood-fever affected Spock apparently kills the captain. After coming to his senses, Spock finds himself in command, as noted by Dr. [=McCoy=].
