With the assistance of the Enterprise crew, Admiral Kirk must stop an old nemesis, Khan Noonien Singh, from using the life-generating Genesis Device as the ultimate weapon.
The scenic view of San Francisco through Kirk's apartment window is a painting, originally created for The Towering Inferno (1974). In front of the backdrop were placed a couple of models of futuristic skyscrapers, with working lights and elevators. Thus, once we assume that Kirk's apartment is in the same place as the tower in The Towering Inferno (1974), then his address is 655 Market Street, San Francisco, California, on the 135th floor.

In the wide-screen director's cut edition, while the crew of the Enterprise scrambles to prepare for battle with the Reliant after the away team beams up from the Genesis Cave, a male African-Amercian crew member in the torpedo bay is seen opening the circular airlock doors with one hand and speaking to others off-screen revealing the light-weight of the prop.
After the opening credits: "In the 23rd century..."
The UK cinema and original video version was deleted by around six seconds and released as PG. Only later was the video reissued uncut as a 15 Cert. The scene deleted from was a closeup shot of the 'bug' coming out of Chekov's ear.
