* NightmareFuel: Though pretty lighthearted compared to previous entries this ''comedic'' entry does have some very creepy scenes, such as the Federation ships being de-powered by the Probe, and the strange montage that plays out in Kirk's head when they're going forward in time.

** The Klingon [[AssInAmbassador Ambassador,]] Kamarag, was memorably [[LargeHam loud]] enough to get himself a RoleReprisal in ''The Undiscovered Country'', ironically, as one of the first to applaud Kirk for salvaging the Klingon/Federation peace treaty.

** The Klingon [[AssInAmbassador Ambassador,]] Kamarag, was memorably [[LargeHam loud]] enough to get himself a RoleReprisal in ''The Undiscovered Country'', first finally getting to nail Kirk to the wall for purportedly assassinating Chancellor Gowron, and then later, ironically, as one of the first to applaud Kirk for salvaging the Klingon/Federation peace treaty.

*** It also set off a number of jokes about just ''how'' Sulu convinced the helicopter pilot to loan him the vehicle - to say nothing of the way he takes Chekov's hand helping him onto the Klingon ship after he gets rescued.

* SignatureScene: Spock and the obnoxious punk on the bus, easily one of the funniest scenes in the whole movie, if not the whole ''franchise.''

** The humpback whale was taken off the endangered species list in 2008 after the global whaling moratorium resulted in a healthy population rebound. While whaling in the 19th and 20th centuries had resulted in an over 95% population reduction (from 125,000 in 1900 to 5,000 in 1966), they now number 80,000 globally as of 2008.

* NeverLiveItDown: Good luck finding anyone who knows much more about Jacqueline Susanne and Harold Robbins than them being mocked as "the giants" of late 20th century literature in this film. For those unfamiliar, the joke is that they were the authors of popular trash novels at the time. The modern equivalent would be something like Spock saying that [[Literature/{{Twilight}}]] and [[Literature/FiftyShadesOfGrey]] were the "giants of literature."

** The Klingon ambassador's attempts at rebutting Sarek fall into this: Yes, we killed Dr. David Marcus in cold blood. Yes, we blew up a Federation science vessel and killed 80 Starfleet officers. Yes, we committed espionage and stole classified materiel. But it's ok since we are trying to preserve our culture which prizes honor and courage above all else. Sarek calls him out on this with a glorious ArmorPiercingQuestion in front of the entire Federation Council.

** Some fans state the film recycles the plot to ''Film/StarTrekTheMotionPicture'': giant, incrutable probe comes to Earth and threatens to wipe out mankind while searching for something unrelated to it.

* OneSceneWonder: The punk on the bus that Spock gives a Vulcan neck pinch to. Quoth Kirk Thatcher, who was also the Associate Producer of the film: "I could win the Nobel Peace Prize and my grave would still say 'Punk On Bus Star Trek IV'."

** The white-haired helmsman of the ''Saratoga'' has a striking and memorable design and manages to convey stoic wisdom in mere seconds of screen time. No surprise that his race (Efrosian) showed up again, in the person of the Federation President, no less, in ''Film/StarTrekVITheUndiscoveredCountry''.
