Which begs the question: What was the point of having the ship be malfunctioning at all? Does it really have anything to do with the overall plot of the film, aside from a few silly jokes?
It was so Kirk would have to take an assault team down to the planet, rather than just beaming up the hostages. I can't remember where I read it, but it was in one of the myriad of behind the scenes books that I've read in my lifetime.
