Yay! I'm glad I managed to catch this film available on Netflix. It was the last of the six feature films based on the original Star Trek cast I had yet to see.

It was great getting to watch this film, because I got to see a plot detail incorporated in Star Trek (2009).

Khan.
I'm also glad, because the movie directly leads into the next film, Star Trek III (1984). I suddenly think to myself, "Oh! That's how they got to this part of the plot." I've gotten that same feeling when I watched Star Wars Episode III (2005) after Star Wars Episode IV (1977) and when I watched the first and second seasons of Lost after the third and fourth seasons.

Uhuru, Bones, and Sulu.

Ha. Good intro. Kobayashi Maru. It's also mentioned in Star Trek (2009).
At the 1 hour 16 minute mark, we learn that the plot in Star Trek (2009) ties into the details laid out in this movie.
"The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few." "Or the one."
Near the end of the movie, around the 1 hour 36 minute mark, I understand why Star Trek III: The Search for Spock (1984) starts the way it does.

Docking the USS Enterprise NCC-1701.
"It's a far, far better thing I do than I have ever done before. A far better resting place that I go to than I have ever known."
: Apparently this comes from A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens. It originally reads, "It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go to, than I have ever known."
:: Apparently I wasn't paying complete attention and Spock gave the book to Kirk as a birthday gift.
We see Spock's casket at the 1 hour 45 minute mark.
