* BetterOnDVD: Kirk's [[CharacterDevelopment Character Arc]] works best when watching the two films back-to-back. ''Into Darkness'' makes several CallBacks to Kirk's previous conflict with Spock, especially when it comes to his coming to terms with his own mortality during a "No-Win Scenario." A lot of this got missed, especially considering there was a 4-year gap between the release of both films.

Not YMMV and Im pretty sure it has to be explicit, not speculation by critics.
* {{Allegory}}: Some critics believe that this film is an allegory for 9/11 conspiracies. Detailed [[http://birthmoviesdeath.com/2013/09/11/how-star-trek-into-darkness-is-a-crypto-truther-conspiracy-movie "here"]]; in short the insider attacks on [[spoiler:Section 31]] and [[spoiler: Starfleet Command]] are used in an attempt to justify a foreign war with an innocent enemy [[spoiler: the Klingons as a stand in for Iraq/Afghanistan]]. In addition script writer Robert Orci is known to believe in 9/11 conspiracy theories and used Twitter feed to spread them.

No Fridge tropes on Main or YMMV pages. It's not a trope.
* FridgeHorror: At the end of the film, the [[spoiler: ''Vengeance'' crashes into San Francisco in the middle of the day, destroying a fair chunk of the city and likely killing tens, if not hundreds of thousands of people.]] The movie doesn't dwell on or address this at all. ** One year later, Kirk speaks at a memorial service for all of Harrison's victims. Presumably the San Francisco victims are included.

Anyone familiar with Sikhs would guess Khan is one of them, not a Muslim. His "Singh" surname alone suggests Sikh background.
* ValuesDissonance: [[spoiler: Khan's RaceLift was because of this. Had Khan -- whose name might suggest that he is Muslim -- been cast by an Indian or Middle-Eastern actor, "John Harrison's" overtly terrorist actions may have led to further UnfortunateImplications with the character.]]

* AmericansHateTingle: The producers of this film found themselves facing unexpected criticism from the Sikh community that was really looking forward to [[spoiler:the film's villain, Khan Noonien Singh, played by a Sikh actor. Of course, the producers wanted to avoid the {{Unfortunate Implication|s}} of non-white character being a villain, but the Sikh noted that the character is such a classic MagnificentBastard and TragicVillain who physically and mentally outclasses any white man that it was a disappointment he was played by a British actor.]]

** Was Khan's casting worth it to see Creator/BenedictCumberbatch's acting talent, or was it pointless whitewashing of a famous person of color role that wasted the opportunity [[spoiler:for a Sikh action to have gotten a really big break]]?[[note]] Despite the original actor ''still'' not being the same race as Khan's entire name would suggest.[[/note]] Are the detractors justified in their accusations of racism, or misguided and counterproductive political correctness or are people just overreacting?
