Early in the film, when they leave the simulator after Spock has 'died,' Kirk and Spock pause after walking down a hallway. They cut to a wide shot inside this Starfleet building, with steps in the foreground, plus a celestial sphere (one of those things that shows earth inside a clear globe with star markings on it). Behind and above them, there is a skylight with vines and plants.

But Harryhausen was the real big one for me. The first time I saw "Seventh Voyage of Sinbad" and when the Cyclops came out of that cave I almost crapped my pants. That, at the time, was probably the most amazing thing I'd ever seen. When I got to meet Harryhausen a while back it was like meeting the President or something-I was a stammering idiot! I was so nervous I could barely ask "C-c-could I-I h-have your a-a-autograph p-please??" He was so nice-an absolute gentleman. That was such a great honor for me.
