Just a speculation, but could it be that Alley'[s contract included an option for more telemovies (and even telemovies that get promoted to the big screen, as ST2 was), but not big screen sequels?
Even though ST II started life as a telemovie, and was produced by Paramount's TV arm, it was always intended as a theatrical release beyond USA, so contracts would not have been so restricted on wording or interpretation. Contractually, Kirstie Alley had to be made an offer on ST III. They offered her less than she earned on ST II, an insulting amount since she was obviously such a popular part of that movie.
