to:

* Ambassador Sarek, father of [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries Spock]], is over 200 years old and suffers from Bendii Syndrome, a rare, degenerative disease in elder Vulcans that affects their emotional control. What this means is that Sarek is in ''no'' condition to conduct some serious negotiations on his final diplomatic duty, and he radiates volatile emotions towards other people on the ''Enterprise.'' In an incredibly selfless act, Picard steps up to the plate, and proposes a MindMeld so that ''he'' can take on all those negative emotions while Sarek fulfills his duty. It works, and Sarek goes down to the planet to get the job done while Picard barricades himself in the conference room with Beverly to endure hours of despair and directionless rage. [[note]]On a meta note, Picard with Sarek's emotions is one of the most ''stunning'' displays of acting Creator/PatrickStewart ever did for ''Trek,'' and that's saying a lot.[[/note]]

* Picard directing Kurland to how to avoid burning up in the atmosphere of Relva VII by bumping off the atmosphere. Even Remmick (who has been an {{Jerkass}} the whole episode) is impressed enough to do a fist bump.

to:

* At first, it's a punch in the gut to see Picard allow the Brekkians to deliver the felicium to the Onarans just to keep the Prime Directive intact, especially when the Brekkians are being [[SmugSnakes condescending]] about it. ''However'', once Picard makes it clear that the Prime Directive also keeps him from fixing their freighters carrying the drug, it's so satisfying to see the Brekkians ''squirm''.




to:

* Upon recovering his memories, John Doe heals the ''entire Enterprise'' of the asphyxiation its crew is suffering.
** Shortly after, John Doe casually uses his newly-remembered abilities to teleport Sunad onto the Enterprise, just as the latter was going to fire on the Enterprise.

* A de-aged Picard's tactic to get a message to Riker after the ship's been taken over? Through a tantrum. It works. (And is absolutely hilarious if you picture Sir Patrick Stewart doing it instead of the child actor.)

to:

* The first half of the episode is an {{Anti Villain}}ous moment of awesome for the Bynars. Hijacking the flagship of the Federation with a BavarianFireDrill and a bit of DistractedByTheSexy? For a race that shows up exactly once in the entire franchise, they certainly make an impression, what with the [[RefugeInAudacity starbase-sized balls]] and all.

to:

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gFd97zl_UY8 The poker game teaser.]] Betting all his chips, Riker does a card trick for Data that, under normal circumstances, wouldn't be half bad. Unfortunately, the one he's trying to fool is Data, who proceeds to explain to him, Troi, and Worf, ''exactly'' how Riker pulled off the trick, step by step. Riker's YouHaveGotToBeKiddingMe face is great enough, but in a rare bit of showmanship, Data rakes in all the chips on the table with a little smirk on his face.

* Picard proves himself in this episode to be a first-rate bullshit detector. After fighting with Kevin and Rishon to get them off a dead world - save for only their house - Picard, acting on a hunch, ''lets their house get bombed by an enemy warship.'' Why would Picard be so cruel? Because, when the house magically reappears(!) a couple hours later, Picard proves, where everyone else was scratching their heads, that not only is Kevin [[SufficientlyAdvancedAlien not human,]] but [[RealityWarper he created all this trickery - including the warship, and Rishon - with immense power, to fool the crew into leaving.]] As Kevin admits, Picard was the first person in who knows how long to figure out his true nature, and it's an incredible show of insight by the captain. [[KillEmAll Until they learn the horrible truth of]] [[DownerEnding why he keeps up the whole charade.]]
