Admiral Kirk and his bridge crew risk their careers stealing the decommissioned U.S.S. Enterprise to return to the restricted Genesis Planet to recover Spock's body.
Although the film's storyline followed directly from that of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982), Khan Noonien Singh (Ricardo Montalban) is never mentioned.
Don't grieve, Admiral. It is logical. The needs of the many outweigh...
Kirk: ...the needs of the few.
Captain Spock: Or the one. I have been and always shall be your friend. Live long and prosper.
After the USS Grissom is destroyed by the Klingons, Saavik tries to hail the Grissom then tells David that it would seem the ship has been destroyed by an enemy attack. Even though the Grissom's captain told her they were under attack, she could not possibly know it had been destroyed simply because they were not responding to her hails.
During the closing credits, they thank US Marine Corp/Twenty-Nine Palms, California.
It should have been spelled Marine Corps.
On pan-and-scan VHS releases, the opening credits are chyroned in, looking compressed. This is done so the background picture would not be compressed.
