Khan and Kirk duke it out on their respective ships in the Mutara nebula. Khan disables the Enterprise with a lucky shot. Kirk disables the Reliant with an experienced shot. Khan activates the Genesis device only giving the crew of the Enterprise 5 minutes to get out of the nebula. Spock sacrifices his life to jump start the Enterprise and escape the nebula with no time to spare.
Kirk sends Spock's body down to the Genesis planet and McCoy walks off with Spock's katra.
Trivia: When the crew is pulling up the grates to lower the photon torpedo into its launch track, you can see a crewman in a red jacket in the background. The way he is fidgeting, he is obviously an extra that didn't know what to do after "Action" was yelled. Though, I guess we could be charitable and say he was a green ensign unsure of what to do at Red Alert.
