About the only thing that I didn't like about TUC was the scene where everybody ends up in the kitchen.
Albeit it was interesting to see that the 1701-A galley had a weapons locker filled with type-2 assault phasers.

Never know when a fresh Neptunian slug might get away from you.

Quark: I'm not going to any emergency shelter! This is my bar and I'm going to defend it.
Odo: Really? And how do you plan to do that?
Quark: With this. (holds up a closed box)
Odo: You're going to hit them with a box?
Quark: No, this is my disruptor pistol, the one I used to carry back in the old days when I was serving on that Ferengi freighter.
Odo: I thought you were the ship's cook.
Quark: That's right, and every member of that crew thought he was a food critic.

Hear me out, I love the guy and I am glad they brought him back in STIII. But I get the impression that STII was introducing the idea that the old crew was making way for a younger crew or as Kirk put it "galavanting about the galaxy is a game for the young."
That would have been a stupid idea to not use TOS characters for the TOS films. Instead they decided to do a sequel on television with TNG, which ended up being the right call.

On the contrary, I think STVI is overrated. Why are the characters treated so badly? Kirk's suddenly a racist, McCoy is incompetent (no idea about Klingon anatomy?), Uhura can't speak Klingon (the communications officer doesn't know the language of the Federation's main rival?) and Spock mind rapes a screaming Valaris on the bridge while everyone just sits and watches.

And the less said about that Shakespeare-obsessed Chang, the better.

It could have been so much better with some rewrites.
Those issues always irk me too, but it is still one of my favorites. Sometimes your opinions about a particular work of medium are less about the piece itself than where your head was when you came to it. Which to my mind explains things like N'Sync and anything with Adam Sandler.

If anything, I'd say it's overrated.

Don't get me wrong, I love it! IMO, it just missed on a couple of things: It was done on the cheap, and it shows in spots. (sme of the FX shots over Khitemer, the prison planet set) Some of the acting was poor. (not Nichelle, Walter or Jimmy's best performances) They missed a great story opportunity with the Saavik character, but went with new character Valeris instead. And the ending on Khitemer was just CHEESY.
