* 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.

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''.

** Thought one might argue there's also a bit of Heartwarming In Hindsight too: Bones can finally discuss Spock's insights on death now.

** Chekov almost being killed in an accidental fall and having to be rescued so 24th century medicine can save him is quite a harder to watch after the bizarre accident that claimed the life of Anton Yelchin, who played Chekov in the first three reboot films.

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: Dr. Nichols is seen wearing an "I quit smoking!" button. Creator/LeonardNimoy would die from COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) caused by years of smoking even though he himself quit around the time the movie was made.

* AngstWhatAngst: Gillian is not particularly upset about being thrown 300 years into the future. True she said she had no one at home but still, such an upheaval should have warranted some shock.
** The ''whales'' are her family. And her job would be the same as her 20th century job.
