** ...saving [=DS9=] and the entire Bajoran system from a NegativeSpaceWedgie in "If Wishes Were Horses" by simply saying that it doesn't exist. A moment later, the anomaly disappears.

* The Battle of Wolf 359, which ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' mostly implied (in the form of a [[CurbstompBattle massive graveyard of destroyed Starfleet ships]]) rather than showed, is [[VisualEffectsOfAwesome presented]] as the [[SeriesEstablishingMoment opening scene of the series]]. From Locutus's [[KneelBeforeZod opening speech]] to the total destruction of the ''Saratoga'' is just over four minutes. And it's implied that the ship only lasted that long because she was crippled early on, causing the Borg to move on to other targets until there were no longer any ships capable of offering [[ResistanceIsFutile resistance.]] Overall, it's a space battle the likes of which have only rarely been seen in ''Star Trek'', and a level of brutality usually left to some of the feature films.

It was a very early indication that the show-runners had a ''much'' different tone in mind for this show compared to previous ''Trek'' works.

*** Bonus points for backhanding him - which "Apocalypse Rising" establishes as a challenge to a duel to the death - and then not killing him once he's been defeated, adding extra insult to injury. Website/SFDebris sums it up thusly:
-->He couldn't make his point any more clear if he'd whipped it out and pissed all over the guy's unconscious face.

** The biggest one comes ''after'' the fighting. During their initial offensive they took a number of Federation and Klingon worlds that the Dominion had occupied. Everyone was worried what the Romulans would do with them, because, as Odo pointed out, it's their usual policy to keep any planet they occupy in a war... And they just ''turned them over to their previous owners'' as soon as they showed up.

* Odo suffering from not being able to regenerate in "The Die is Cast", and still managing to get in a brief Reason You Suck Speech to Garak.
-->'''Odo:''' What's the matter, Garak? You don't look very happy. Aren't you enjoying yourself?
-->'''Garak:''' There's no pleasure in this for me, Constable, I assure you. I am simply doing my job.
-->'''Odo:''' Your job. Yes, this is the job you've been waiting for. All these years of exile and here you are interrogating a prisoner again. It must fill you with pride.
-->'''Garak:''' Odo, just tell me what I need to know and this will end.
-->'''Odo:''' But you don't want it to end, do you, Garak? Isn't this what you've been dreaming of? Back at work serving Cardassia.

** And Damar laughing about it. Which gets both funnier and more awesome when he offers Weyoun 8 to drink to Weyoun 7 with a bottle with [[CrossesTheLineTwice A TWISTED NECK]].

* "Homefront." The Federation President, even after a Dominion terrorist bombing, proclaims in a meeting with Sisko and Admiral Leyton that he doesn't believe the Changeling threat to be as serious as Starfleet makes it out to be. In response, they give the President a hell of a jolt when the briefcase Sisko brought to the meeting ''transforms into Odo.'' Even the President admits that was a hell of an entrance.
