* BaseBreaker: While it's one of the more popular installments, there are fans who see it as a glorified version of ''{{Tarzan}}'s New York Adventure''.

* SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: The film manages to play the trope straight and subvert it at the same time. The entire film is a sci-fi jaunt, and there is no real "Save the whales!" handwringing. No, it only needs 2 minutes to hit audiences with the message ''hard'' and ''unforgettably'', by showing RealLife whale hunting, with bodies being carved up graphically, leading to this potent exchange between Spock and Gillian before returning to the sci-fi adventure. --->'''Spock:''' To hunt a species to extinction is illogical. --->'''Gillian:''' ''(DeathGlare)'' Who said the human species was ''logical''?

** In the beginning of the film, the Klingon Ambassador says "There shall be no peace, as long as Kirk lives!" The plot of the [[Film/StarTrekVITheUndiscoveredCountry sixth movie]] is about a new Klingon-Federation peace treaty, and Kirk is instrumental in getting it ratified and preventing another war.

The very same Ambassador is shown in that film as well, begrudgingly applauding Kirk's efforts.

* {{Anvilicious}} about its GreenAesop. It definitely ''is''; opinions vary on whether people have a problem with that.

During the scene where Kirk and Spock are in a tour group hearing about the damages being made to whales there's a scene in which Gillian appears to be looking ''directly into the camera'' as she talks about how whaling needs to be abolished.

** Scotty, after overcoming his initial uncertainty over how to use a [[UsefulNotes/AppleMacintosh Mac Plus]]: "The keyboard? How quaint!" Back then, ironic as mice and [=GUIs=] were cutting edge. Now, "just using the keyboard" ''is'' quaint; made even more ironic given smartphones and tablets (made popular by the same company) mostly eschew keyboards and have introduced voice activation (which Scotty was trying to do with the Mac Plus). Sorry, Scotty, no Siri in TheEighties.

Sorry, Scotty, no Siri in TheEighties. It's also doubly funny considering the ''Trek'' shows from TNG onwards showed the use of "pads," a technology very much like our modern tablets.

** One of the ExpandedUniverse novels had Kirk and crew re-encounter the probe and attempt to make contact with it. Turns out it was a combination of oversight on the part of its creators (a cetacean-like race that saw humanoids as little more than "mites"), and damage to its sensors from a prior encounter with some "mites" in a cube-shaped vessel (the Borg). Once the crew repaired the damage and showed the probe the havoc its full-power signal was causing, it agreed to be more careful.
