** Despite the TroubledProduction of the [[Film/StarTrekTheMotionPicture previous film]], Paramount actually were open to letting Creator/GeneRoddenberry produce the sequel. However, his resistance to the idea of stepping back into a more hands-off role and letting someone else supervise the day-to-day workings of the shoot, along with his outright refusal to budge away from a story idea whereby Spock would accidentally prevent the assassination of UsefulNotes/JohnFKennedy, resulted in Paramount [[KickedUpstairs kicking him upstairs]] and giving him no real say in the film's production.

* ShrugOfGod: Creator/NicholasMeyer has constantly been asked why Khan wears a glove only on his right hand, and has never given an answer, often saying "Why do ''you'' think he wears it?".

** The role of Lt. Marla McGivers (smitten with Khan in [[Recap/StarTrekS1E22SpaceSeed "Space Seed"]]) was considered to be included in the script. Unfortunately, the actress playing Lt. McGivers, Madilyn Rhue, had been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1977 (by 1985, Rhue would be confined to a wheelchair, this limiting the roles she could take); resulting in the character [[http://www.tor.com/2017/05/23/star-trek-the-original-series-rewatch-star-trek-ii-the-wrath-of-khan/ being written out altogether]].

* NoBudget: Not completely, but given the cost overruns on ''Film/StarTrekTheMotionPicture'', they definitely had to save money wherever they could. There isn't much in the way of new sets; the remains of the ''Botany Bay'', Regula I and some corridors. The movie is largely a BottleEpisode. The Klingon ships in the training simulator, all of the ''Enterprise'' shots in drydock and the "beauty shot" after its launch were all [[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.

* DyeingForYourArt: Ricardo Montalban engaged in an intense workout regimen to show that Khan is still a force to be reckoned with. Those pecs you see throughout the film? All real.
