Production was endangered by the great fire at Paramount. William Shatner helped fight the fire and rescue a crewmember before firefighter reinforcements arrived. Shatner said that his motivation for doing so was purely to save a day on the shooting schedule, as he had a make a deadline to be available for shooting on a new season of T.J. Hooker (1982).

Sarek has great influence with the Federation. It would have been a great help to Kirk and McCoy if he had explained to Federation what was wrong with the doctor. He would probably have no trouble asking Federation Command to have Grissom recover Spock's body and take it to Vulcan. Then Sarek, Kirk and McCoy could have flown to Volcan from Earth and performed the ceremony without incident. 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.

Leonard Nimoy is credited as director in the opening credits, but is not included in the cast list. There is a long gap between the names of William Shatner and DeForest Kelley, which lasts for the length of time Nimoy's name would have been displayed. See more »
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times
When I was a kid and saw "Star Trek 3" in the theatre, I thought it was great. But watching it again as an adult I can see the flaws in it. It's an enjoyable film, but there's some things that don't make sense.
1. When Kirk goes to the federation, and explains the situation about Spock, why wouldn't they order the casket to be retrieved, and transported back to starfleet?
2. The Klingons want a weapon that doesn't exist anymore. They want the genesis device so they can have a quasi nucleur weapon, but the device blew up in #2. Why didn't anybody point that out to them?
Beyond logical problems so to speak, there's the filmmaking. Nimoy did the best he could with the slim budget Paramount gave him, but crummy sets are crummy sets. Location shooting would have been so much better.
A lot of people will say that Robin Curtis did a bad job compared to Kirstie. I thought she did OK, but probably would have done better if she was directed by Nicolas Meyer like Kirstie was.
