** It's easily missable, but the Undine use their planet-killer beam to blast through the doorway of the Solanae Dyson Sphere like it's nothing - however, if it's anything like the Jenolan Dyson Sphere, then the outer shell is composed of carbon-neutronium [[note]] The latter of which is a substance so fantastically hard that all weapons bounce off without effect, even centuries after it's discovery. [[/note]]. So therefore, not only did they blast through a ''[[{{Understatement}} very]]'' sturdy material, but the beam retained enough power to blast the Voth Capital Dreadnought into oblivion afterward.

* To celebrate ''Franchise/BackToTheFuture'' Day, Cryptic released a special Risa-only hoverboard for players based off of Marty [=McFly=]'s hoverboard. They even have a bit of fluff with the Temporal Investigations Agents that revealed that, essentially, Marty and Doc's time traveling shenanigans caused this to happen!

* You escort a Vulcan ambassador to [[Series/StarTrekEnterprise the monastery at P'jem]]. Once you arrive, the Klingons claim that the "ambassador" is in fact an Undine (aka Species 8472), and try to blow you up to get at him. [[spoiler:Turns out... they're right. You fight the "ambassador", first on the ground, then you fight the Tethys-class ''dreadnought'' he has hidden in orbit, your officers noting with some panic that your little light cruiser doesn't have a prayer of beating it alone. You shoot down the plasma torpedos the dreadnought fires at you, trying to hold on... and then an entire fleet warps in and blows away the dreadnought. This is the ''second storyline mission'' after the tutorial.]]

* The events of ''Dust to Dust'' is one for Harry Kim. [[spoiler: While admittedly helped a bit on the way by the peculiarities of the Kobali brain, the Kobali-turned quantum-twin of Ensign Kim that died in 2372 ''single-handedly'' breaks free when revived and takes over the systems of the Kobali temple/stasis storage facility, and then -- once you've, with the help of Captain Harry Kim, gotten past the several obstacles he places in your way -- beams away at the last moment and ''hijacks the new Kobali flagship''.]] It's admittedly the cause of most of the mess in the episode, and nearly results in the destruction of ''Voyager'', but it's still quite impressive.

** And much like Operation Gamma (see above), [[spoiler:full-scale fleets are a ''distraction'' while we sneak in virtually undetected.]] But instead of doing so in a shuttlecraft, the player's ship gets the honor, ''flying dangerously close to a'' '''star''' ''and using it's damaging energies to work in your favor.''

* "What's Left Behind".

The Iconians couldn't turn her when they kidnapped her and it was obvious she was going to fight to prevent being turned into an Elachi.]]

** Another subtle one from the episode. The new Romulan Flagship Commander? Tiaru Jarok, the daughter of Admiral Jarok from [[StarTrekTheNextGeneration TNG's]] ''The Defector'' who gave up his career and later his life so that she could live in a peaceful Romulus. Romulus may be gone, but she's now defending the peace her people have on New Romulus in his name.

* ''A Step Between Stars'' is one... but not for the player. [[spoiler: FOR THE UNDINE AND THE ICONIANS]]. While trying to save Admiral Tuvok and the scientists trapped on the solar station for the Solanae Dyson Sphere, the player and Tuvok are manipulated into opening an Iconian Gateway by [[spoiler: Dr. Cooper, who is a really an Undine in disguise.]] The gateway leads to the recently disappeared [[StarTrekTheNextGeneration Jenolan Dyson Sphere]] when the Undine outside the sphere burst in and attack the Voth Battleship and the player's ship. The Romulan and KDF Flagships come to your rescue... but all 3 factions are fighting over who gets the Jenolan Sphere. The Federation claims since they had held it for 40 years before it changed locations, it's rightfully theirs. The Klingons argue they've possessed no territory gained from the Joint Command Operations and it's their right to claim the Jenolan Sphere. The Romulans argue since the Solanae Sphere and the gateway network that connects them is now owned by the Romulans this sphere is properly ''their'' space now. Congratulations, the [[spoiler: Undine]] have successfully undermined the alliance that we've been working for the last year or so. But remember whose pulling their stings. [[spoiler: The Iconians are the true winners of this battle and no doubt ensured that it was Jenolan that the gateway linked to. Once again, they with one single swipe have started strife across the Alpha Quadrant.]] The only HopeSpot is Tuvok leading a conference soon to try to resolve this issue.. [[DownerEnding but if it fails...]]

* "Dragon's Deceit". We infiltrate a hidden base, via actual stealth and grappling hook functions, single-handedly. Near the end, we're waylaid, and a fight breaks out of course. [[spoiler: At the end of it, you're expecting some sort of Iconian influence, thanks to the events of Surface Tension. However, on the floor, prone, the defeated Vaudwaar's mouth opens wide... [[WhamShot and a little bug crawls out of it, ala 'Conspiracy'.]] Then you get to exterminate one hive full of these things, including a few of the 'mother' forms.]]
