Continuity mistake: When Spock, wearing rocket boots, is in the turboshaft carrying Kirk and McCoy on either arm, he fires the booster rockets, thus propelling the three of them up the turboshaft. If you watch carefully, the deck numbers in the background as they rise upwards go as follows: 35, 52, 64, back to 52, 77, 78, and then 78 again! Not content with one goof, Kirk and McCoy can quite clearly be seen with their feet dangling in mid air, not on Spock's boots. They aren't exactly clinging to him either, more like leaning against him. Surely Kirk and McCoy would be unable to hold onto him!
Bones: "You'll have a great time, Bones. You'll enjoy your shore leave. You, you'll be able to relax." You call this relaxing? I'm a nervous wreck! If I'm not careful, I'll end up talking to myself!
Trivia: This probe which the Klingon ship destroyed is either the Pioneer 10 or 11. This is based on the plaque it carries. The Voyager 1 and 2 spacecraft, launched a few years after the Pioneer spacecraft, had a child on their plaques along with the man and woman.
