* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: There's a faction of ''Franchise/StarTrek'' fandom, particularly in ''VideoGame/StarTrekOnline'''s playerbase, that views the destruction of Praxis as a missed opportunity for the Federation to deal with the Klingons permanently, that they should have taken the opportunity to launch a full-scale invasion because the peace, however well-intentioned, would not prove sustainable: "Yesterday's Enterprise" showed the Klingons and Federation at war despite the Khitomer Accords, with this only averted in the prime timeline through the loss of the ''Enterprise''-C. In 2372 the Klingons go off half-cocked against the newly democratic Cardassian Union, eventually driving them right into the hands of the Dominion, and declaring war on the Federation when their allies tried to rein them in. The exact same thing as in 2372 happened in the backstory to ''VideoGame/StarTrekOnline'', only with the Undine instead of the Dominion as bogeyman du jour. In both of the latter two instances, the alliance was only restored by [[EnemyMine a mutual enemy]]. ''So what happens when the Federation runs out of mutual foes they can distract the Klingons with?''\\

But hey, we got an end-of-the-UsefulNotes/ColdWar allegory out of it, right? And as with the collapse of the Soviet Union, it didn't take so very long for the Klingon "allies" to fall back into their old habits. Exhibit A: Vladimir Putin.

** Chang is clearly the obvious villain of the piece, though - covering for the [[spoiler: real twist in the film that ''Starfleet officers'' are part of a conspiracy, and that ''they'' supplied Chang with the damning recording of Kirk]].

** [[FridgeLogic Always bugged me.]] You're telling me the Klingon Empire are supposed to be the villains of the story, but they don't so much as take their prisoners' clothes away? Heck, they even give them extra clothes on Rura Penthe, though, granted, they'd probably die of hypothermia if they didn't. However, they still get to keep their Starfleet Uniforms...why?

* SurprisinglyImprovedSequel: Not only was it a major return to form after the horribly-received previous film, more than a few fans even regarded it as the best ''Trek'' film since ''Film/StarTrekIITheWrathOfKhan''.

* SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: This film addresses the fears many people had about the imminent collapse of the Soviet Union and the end of the ColdWar.

** The Federation and Klingon hardliners trying to sabotage the peace talks between their leaders because harsher when in 2015, Republican senators tried reaching Iranian hardliners to try and do the same thing between President Obama and the Iranian leadership.

* WinBackTheCrowd: Doing so after the disappointing reception for ''Film/StarTrekVTheFinalFrontier''. This is the one that really cemented the "evens good, odds bad" rule.

* LifeImitatesArt: The plot of the film, whereby hardliners attempt a coup against the moderate leader in the hostile empire, was nearly repeated as the film was being edited: in form of the August coup against Mikhail Gorbachev, on whom Gorkhon was based, by hardliners who wanted to go back to the good old Cold War days.
