Added DiffLines:

** When Sybok offers to take away his pain, Kirk refuses--emphatically insisting that he needs his pain. The next movie shows that Kirk holding onto his pain (specifically, his son being killed by Klingons) makes him an ample scapegoat for the conspiracy and is a major obstacle that he must overcome.

** Not to mention it's just bone-headed for Sarek to be disappointed his son is "so human" considering SPOCK'S MOTHER IS HUMAN. AND HE KNEW THIS. Freaking duh he's human!

** And then, in ''Film/StarTrekBeyond'', [[spoiler:[[TheCharacterDiedWithHim it's revealed that Spock has died]], with the strong implication that he was the last surviving TOS crewmember.]]

* VindicatedByHistory: To a ''very'' slight degree. For about a decade or so after its release it tended to be up there with things like ''Film/HowardTheDuck'' and ''Film/BatmanAndRobin'' on "Worst Films of All-Time" lists, and wasn't much better regarded among ''Star Trek'' fans. Nowadays it tends to be regarded as just a mediocre sci-fi flick, with the likes of ''Film/BattlefieldEarth'' attracting more BileFascination from casual viewers, and ''Trek'' fans turning their ire toward ''Film/StarTrekNemesis'' and ''Film/StarTrekInsurrection'' instead. It has a few heartwarming character moments that elevate it slightly as well.

* CrowningMomentOfFunny: In a movie full of painful humor, Spock says this after saving Kirk:
-->'''Spock:''' (''when Kirk tries to hug him'') Please, Captain. Not in front of the Klingons.
** When Klaa blasts the Pioneer 10 probe, it emits a cartoonish shriek (?!).
** Maybe it spent the previous 300 years becoming sentient? [[Film/StarTrekTheMotionPicture There are precedents...]]
** Uhura catching Sulu and Chekov in their attempt to avoid admitting they were lost. More specifically, Chekov's response without missing a beat:
--->'''Chekov:''' Sulu look, the sun's come out! It's a miracle!
*** Of course, what really makes it work is Walter Koenig's palpable contempt for the script.

** At the press conference for this film (as seen in the special features), [=DeForest=] Kelley says [=McCoy's=] line, "He's dead, Jim." ''Oh, De!'' Kelley died only a decade later.

** Klaa destroying ''Pioneer 10'' ForTheEvulz. It's never even mentioned that [[ScienceFictionWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale he would've had to enter deep into the Earth system to find it]].

* CanonSue: What Shatner turns Kirk into. He freeclimbs El Capitan, personally leads a squadron of {{space marine}}s [[ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything who don't do anything]], charges into a hostage rescue operation on horseback, is the only character who flat-out refuses Sybok's EpiphanyTherapy, and is the first person to think of asking God what he needs with a starship.
** Still, it could have been a lot worse - it actually ends up being [[spoiler:Spock and the drunken Klingon general]] who save the day.
*** Kirk doesn't so much "freeclimb" El Capitan as "fall off", the hostage rescue ends with Kirk getting his ship captured, and asking what God wants with a starship is probably his first victory of the movie that doesn't quickly turn into a defeat. It could have been a ''lot'' worse.
** The original script was actually worse, featuring Spock and [=McCoy=] also succumbing to the EpiphanyTherapy, thus leaving Kirk as ''the only heroic character'' for a good portion of the movie.
