When Valkris, the Klingon spy, first approaches the freighter captain from behind, we can only see the bottom portion of her torso. We cannot see her face, but there definitely is something covering her front. However, when we see her face in the next shot, her face and torso are uncovered. See more »
[Spock's dying words, repeated from the previous film]
Don't grieve, Admiral. It is logical. The needs of the many outweigh...
...the needs of the few.
Or the one. I have been and always shall be your friend. Live long and prosper.

Easily the most underrated Trek film in the franchise. I think what I like best about this film is that it's a movie about friendship and the sacrifices for the people we truly care about.
The acting is first-rate all around. William Shatner, who I've always felt is underrated, gives one of his best performances as Kirk in this film. Ditto for the rest of the cast. Nichelle Nichols finally a chance to shine in the series as "Uhura" when she turns a phaser on Mr. Adventure. George Takei has one of the best classic Trek moments when he easily dispatches a Federation security guard. And DeForest Kelley has a chance to show his stuff.
Although I'm sure a lot of people don't realize it, this is also one of the most influential Trek films of the series. It was in this film where we first got to see the Klingons as we know them today. We didn't see them in Wrath of Khan, and we really didn't get a good look at them in The Motion Picture. ST III establishes the Klingons as the race we know them to be today with their forehead ridges, uniform and all.
An all around great film with a wonderful blend of action, drama, and a healthy sprinkle of humor. I highly recommend it.
