I'll start:Spoiler:- Scotty has a Tribble in the research base in a cage. (annoyed me at first as I was thinking "Why aren't there millions of them" but then Scotty started complaining that all he had to eat was rations, therefore the tribble won't have been eating much and they need to eat a LOT for the fast breeding.
- During Kirk's Academic Suspension hearing when Spock stands from the auditorium he performs Picard's signiture "top pull down and straighten" thing (the "Other Picard Manoeuvre")
- Pike ends the film in a wheelchair
- Ok, i wouldn't have known this if it hadn't have been for an interview with Simon Pegg BUT, the Enterprise teleporter room assistant (sat next to Scotty all the time in there) is Christopher Doohan, James Doohan's son.
- Scotty was sent away to the research facility because he attempted to teleport Admiral Archer's Beagle and it never rematerialised, sound familiar anyone (Oh me yarm Scotty killed Porthos!).
You're forgetting all the dialog lines that were right out of the old movies:
- I'm givin' her all she's got Captain!
- *pause* Fascinating.
- I don't believe in the no-win scenario
