** LeonardNimoy and NicholasMeyer very nearly got into a shouting match during the filming of Spock's death scene, according to Nimoy's autobiography ''I Am Spock''. The cause was that they had differences on how gory the scene should be. Meyer wanted Spock visibly bleeding green from open sores and leaving a very visible green handprint from his Vulcan salute, while Nimoy thought that would be undignified, borderline {{narm}} and would distract from the ''gravitas'' of the scene. Add into the mix that Nimoy recalls being physically distressed at killing off Spock (as mentioned below under WhatCouldHaveBeen, he had rekindled a desire to keep the character going), and the fuse was lit. In the end, Meyer backed off and toned down the blood.

* MisaimedFandom: In-universe. ''Literature/MobyDick'' is part of Khan's private library and he quotes Captain Ahab throughout the movie. Either Khan misses the point of the novel or [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation alternatively]], he understands the point of the novel completely and recognizes the parallels between himself and Ahab, but is so consumed by his rage that he doesn't care, or is just so arrogant that he believes that, unlike Ahab, he could slay his white whale without destroying himself and his crew. Also, it's possible that Khan knows he will die as a result of his actions, but he wants to [[TakingYouWithMe take Kirk with him.]] A "TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou" sort of thing.

** Forget Khan; by now, the real villain of Gene Roddenberry's life had entered the stage: Nicholas Meyer. Gene Roddenberry ''hated'' the militaristic framing of ''[=WoK=]'' as it developed (though he later praised/claimed credit for the "Hornblower in space" theme, it was not his idea), accusing it of not staying true to his ideals of what Star Trek should be. Meyer was then a young man, a newcomer to Hollywood, full of vim and vigor, and in no mood to take crap from a fossil like Roddenberry. Their struggles, which threatened to overshadow the film itself, are chronicled in Meyer's memoir, ''A View From The Bridge''. After it came out that Gene had been sick, and was being fed orders from his parasitic attorney, Meyer regretted losing his cool at him.

* EnforcedMethodActing: During the scene where Kirk tricks Khan by using the Prefix Code to lower ''Reliant's'' shields, WilliamShatner kept delivering the line "Here it comes" in a sing-songy, mocking manner. Meyer felt that Kirk would NOT do this, as that's pretty blatantly telegraphing your intentions to your enemy. In the end, Meyer hit on a plan -- he had Shatner do several takes of the line. On the last take, Shatner, finally sick of the multiple attempts, thought to just phone it in and delivered a blank, emotionless reading of the line, hoping that Meyer would get the hint and move on. [[BatmanGambit Meyer indeed moved on after that take -- the exact reading he wanted for the line, and the reading that was included in the finished cut.]] In fact, Meyer often used this tactic when dealing with Shatner.
* ExecutiveMeddling (According to Meyer, lawyers decided who got credited, and paid, for the screenplay. [[http://trekmovie.com/2007/07/14/interview-with-nicholas-meyer/ "I just wrote it and they put somebody's name on it."]]) [[labelnote:As for the whole story]]The full story- before Nick Meyer was hired as director, there had been five different previous drafts of the script (four written by Jack B Sowards, one by Samuel Peeples) -- all with considerably different plots and all unsatisfactory. The special effects company needed to have a proper screenplay for the film within twelve days or the movie basically wouldn't happen, so Meyer volunteered to write a definitive screenplay within twelve days which would combine all the best aspects of the previous drafts. Upon being told they wouldn't even be able to organize a screenwriter's credit for him in twelve days, Meyer decided to do it anyway and try to organize a deal later. In the end he actually did complete the screenplay within twelve days but ended up going uncredited and unpaid for it, with Sowards getting the sole credit.[[/labelnote]]

* NoBudget: Not completely, but given the cost overruns on ''Film/StarTrekTheMotionPicture'', they definitely had to save money wherever they could. As a result, all of the Enterprise shots in drydock (and the "beauty shot" after its launch) were [[StockFootage recycled from the first movie]]. Several uniforms were reused as well - the thruster suits, engineering suits, and [=McCoy=]'s medical shirt were reused straight-up with only minor tweaks, and the one-piece jumpsuit uniforms were dyed and tweaked into the cadet/noncom jumpsuits. Even Spock's black robe is from the first movie.
* [[PromotedFanboy Promoted Fangirl]]: Kirstie Alley was a big-time fan of the original series who was extremely excited to be able to play a role alongside Leonard Nimoy. Apparently, she was quite apt at the Vulcan characterization which helped to land her the role. Sadly, she did not come back for ''The Search For Spock'', though exactly why is not clear. Some sources claimed that she chose not to return because she was afraid of being typecast as a "science fiction actress", while other sources claim that her agent demanded too much money without her knowledge or approval, hence her being replaced by Robin Curtis.
* PropRecycling: A time-honored ''Franchise/StarTrek'' tradition. In particular, the ''Enterprise'' and ''Reliant'' bridge sets are in fact the same set. It was designed modularly so that the different sections could be switched around to present a different layout.
** The Reliant studio model is built largely from spare Enterprise model parts with a few additions and one major notable subtraction (The secondary hull is removed entirely with the nacelles grafted directly onto the saucer section)

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: [[spoiler:Spock's]] HeroicSacrifice was originally placed at the middle of the movie, in an attempt to mimic the ''Film/{{Psycho}}'' gambit. When they wisely decided to make it the emotional climax of the film instead, Peter Preston's sacrifice was put in its place instead. Similarly, the whole ordeal was practically spoiled before the movie began filming because it was what lured him back to the franchise. The Kobayashi Maru sequence was intended as a way to throw off expectations.
** To elaborate: An early version of the script got leaked, including the fact that [[spoiler:Spock died]]. Afterwards, the Kobayashi Maru sequence, which included [[spoiler:Spock]] fake-dying, was added to fake-out moviegoers and make them think that that was the "death" that had been promised.
** Ricardo Montalban considered turning down reprising the role of Khan due to lack of screen time. When he realized how much of an impact Khan had (even when he's not on screen, Khan is affecting every action every character in the movie takes), he signed onto the film.

*** Even before that stage: they originally considered having the ''Reliant'' be another "Constitution"-class starship (it was the only class of Federation ship seen on ''Trek'' before that time), but then realized the audience would have trouble telling it apart from the ''Enterprise'' during the battle sequences. Thus it was decided to make ''Reliant'' part of the "Miranda"-class.

** Forget Khan; by now, the real villain of Gene Roddenberry's life had entered the stage: Nicholas Meyer. Gene Roddenberry ''hated'' the militaristic framing film as it developed (though he later prasied/claimed credit for the "Hornblower in space" theme, it was ''not'' his idea), accusing it of not staying true to his ideals of what Star Trek should be. Meyer was then a young man, a newcomer to Hollywood, full of vim and vigor, and in no mood to take crap from a fossil like Roddenberry. Their struggles, which threatened to overshadow the film itself, are chronicled in Meyer's memoir, ''A View From The Bridge''. After it came out that Gene had been sick, and was being fed orders from his parasitic attorney, Meyer regretted losing his cool at him.
