* AudienceAlienatingPremise: The ''Enterprise'' crew meeting God [[spoiler:or what seemed to be]], to such a degree that Creator/GeneRoddenberry himself tried to talk Shatner of making it.

** When "God" chases Kirk near the end, it wails out "Yyyyyyyyyyooooooooooooooouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!" It's supposed to be haunting and scary, but sounds like an elderly ghost from Franchise/ScoobyDoo trying to scare someone, and failing miserably.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: The Nimbus III parts ''could'' have been amazing. Desert planet filled with rogues and criminals? It easily could have been Star Trek's [[Franchise/StarWars Tatooine]] but alas the Shat happened.

** 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.

* WatchItForTheMeme: Sybok's 'I couldn't help but notice your pain' (said when he encounters 'God') found its way into a [[TupacShakur 2Pac]] song.

* TearJerker: The scene with [=McCoy=]'s dying father. Creator/DeForestKelley gets to '''[[SugarWiki/HeReallyCanAct act]]'''.
-->'''[=McCoy=]:''' Not long after, they found a ''cure!'' A '''GODDAMN CURE!'''

* TookTheBadFilmSeriously: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IW1BCy_dVeI Lawrence Luckinbill as 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.

** The tagline "Why are they putting seatbelts in theaters this summer?" was ''meant'' to imply that the movie was so suspenseful you'd need a seatbelt to stay in your seat...or something. It was ''not'' meant to imply that the film was so boring that the seatbelts were to keep audience members from escaping, an interpretation many reviewers [[ReviewIronicEcho gleefully ran with.]]

* NarmCharm: Sybok's final line before attacking the false God: "I couldn't help but notice your pain!...It runs deep! ''Share it with me!''" Only he could take such a corny line and make it sound badass.

* CrackPairing: Uhura and Scotty? Seriously? Granted, it probably wouldn't have been out of place in TOS or one of the earlier films, but the attraction between the two comes out of absolutely nowhere, and is never referenced again.



* RomanticPlotTumor: Scott and Uhura? Since ''when''?



* StrangledByTheRedString: When did Uhura ever show romantic interest in Scotty?
* TearJerker: The scene with [=McCoy=]'s dying father. DeforestKelley gets to '''[[SugarWiki/HeReallyCanAct act]]'''.

''Film/StarTrekInsurrection'', but for all of the wrong reasons.

* ContestedSequel: It won a UsefulNotes/GoldenRaspberryAward, is widely considered the shining example of the StarTrekMovieCurse and at the very least the worst movie with the original Enterprise crew, with some going so far as to consider it the worst ''Star Trek'' movie overall, or even one of the worst films of all-time. But has some defenders (see VindicatedByHistory)
