* TookTheBadFilmSeriously: Lawrence Luckinbill as Sybok. He gives a pretty decent performance and one suspects that he would have provided a truly memorable villain, if his character had been given a less ridiculous motivation and plot.

* TookTheBadFilmSeriously: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IW1BCy_dVeI Lawrence Luckinbill as Sybok.Sybok]], as seen on his official demo reel from the film. He gives a pretty decent performance and one suspects that he would have provided a truly memorable villain, if his character had been given a less ridiculous motivation and plot.

* AwesomeMusic: The score by Music/JerryGoldsmith. He returned after 10 years and gave it his full orchestra treatment.

** Nichelle Nichols' cover of Music/{{Hiroshima}}'s "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dvTwqcGZhAE The Moon's a Window to Heaven]]" is very good, too. [[FanDisservice The fan dance, not so much.]]

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.

Added DiffLines:

** 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.
This list shows the last 10 events of 114. Show all.
