Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan - David Marcus, Warp-Speed Capable?
After Kirk and company return from inside Regula I and are booking it to the Mutara Nebula. Khan fires a torpedo from the Reliant to "warn" them. The torpedo explodes and a short clip of McCoy and the Doctors Marcus in sick-bay is seen. McCoy is seen shaking from the impact and David Marcus is shown almost falling. Cut to the bridge, we see the bridge crew shaking from the shot and Kirk commenting about Khan "not wanting them to go in there." Before he finishes talking, a shapely young crewman is seen walking behind him. Then, David Marcus steps onto the bridge from the turbo-lift, while the same young woman is walking around the bridge. He sure got up there from sick-bay mighty fast!!

There is a reason for this. If you ever see Star Trek II on TV, watch it. When they began airing it on TV, they actually ADDED scenes to the movie. After that torpedo shot, the scene on the Enterprise bridge is longer, after Saavik says "That was close" and Kirk answers, she asks "What if they don't follow us?" (or words to the effect) and Spock reassures her, and tells her to ask him about the "human ego". After this exchange, David walks onto the bridge. The other scenes are: The computer voice describing the Kobayashi Maru is slightly longer, and the speaker announcements at the end of the simulation are more audible, such as "Blowers on!" and "Engineering cadets report to C Level". In Engineering before the Enterprise leaves dock; Kirk has a short conversation with Cadet Preston (Scotty's nephew). The turbolift scene between Kirk and Saavik is different (acting and how it is shot). The sick bay scene just after Preston dies is longer, with Kirk talking to Scotty about getting the mains back on line and has a short talk with McCoy. The last added scene is after Kirk and party beam back to the Enterprise from Regula, they show Kirk, Spock and Saavik climbing the same ladder we see Spock use later, and Kirk says, "That man, he's my son." and Spock says "Fascinating." Personally, I think these little scenes make the movie all the better, especially the extended scenes in Engineering and Sick bay with Preston.

Right, for the most part the deleted scenes could have been in the film. I think the one that needed to be in there the most was the scene where Kirk and Preston talk, setting up the death for more emotion than what was delivered (not that it was a bad amount, and I guess that's what Meyer thought). The other ones are mostly inconsequential for the most part.
