Good god there's a LONGER one?
Yes. Yes, there is. 12 minutes longer I believe.

The SLV is the only version that includes the complete argument between Kirk and McCoy ("And another thing...." "Get out of here, Bones."), isn't it? That's one of my favorite scenes in the whole film. I don't know why the theatrical and DE cuts removed it. It requires no effects, after all...
The added scenes, IIRC, are rough looking - taken literally from the cutting room floor and re-added into the film.
ST:TMP, as originally released, had a runtime of 132 minutes which was the studios' final cut, while, the version with the extra 12 minutes, I believe, represented Robert Wise's final director's cut.
