Continuity mistake: In the final scene on the bridge, Spock and McCoy are wearing colored arm bands which identify their departments: Spock's is orange (for Science) and McCoy's is green (for Medical). In the very last shot, Spock is wearing the green band and McCoy is wearing the orange one.
Trivia: A constant question during the run of all the Trek series is why Klingons look so much different from Star Trek: The Motion Picture on than they did in the original series. The real reason is the movies and later TV series had a better makeup budget. However, the Star Trek: Enterprise episodes "Affliction" and "Divergence" provide a canon answer. Klingons acquired genetically engineered human embryos left over from Earth's Eugenic Wars and used them to augment their soldiers. It worked but created a virus that threatened to annihilate the Klingon race. Dr. Phlox and a Klingon doctor found a cure, but it resulted in all Klingons becoming far more human in appearance. Sometime between these episodes and the first Trek movie a cure was found, returning the Klingons to their present day "ridged-head" appearance.
