*** Shortly after that, Q2 shows up and claims an entire second Moment of Awesome when he explains that [[spoiler: he was responsible for Lwaxana keeping the powers long enough to teach Q a lesson he'd never forget (complete with taking ''pictures'' of Q's beating to show the rest of the Continuum), before hopping over to another spot and hitting Q in the face with the fact Picard was right on target with his HannibalLecture: Q is indeed behaving in a very ''human '' manner.]]

** Worf, from the same novel, is in [[DeadpanSnarker prime form]]. During the above-mentioned Q-thrashing, we get this wonderful gem:
-->'''Riker:''' She's trashing him! What should we do?\\
'''Worf:''' [[PassThePopcorn Sell tickets]].

* You expect Picard and Worf to be willing to die to prevent the Ux-Mal prisoners from using the Enterprise crew as hosts and escape their prison. But then there's Keiko, who says openly that she would die to defend her daughter.

** Throughout the episode, Keiko proves herself cool under fire, even to the fact that her ''own husband'' is acting unlike himself (being possessed, but she doesn't know this until much later); she does her best not to panic or freak, [[MamaBear instead just taking care of their daughter as best she can.]] Even as a chosen hostage with Picard and Worf, not knowing the same details as the bridge crew, all she has to go on is what she hears- even when the situation suddenly turns into a stand-off, where they could die in an instant, she's still entirely calm when stating the above.

* Data learning to communicate in five entirely different forms of sign language in a matter of minutes.
* Whatever his fear and guilt after the destruction of his chorus, Riva choosing to return to negotiations (after Deanna talks him into it with a CMOA of her own), and reunite the warring people by teaching ''them'' his form of sign language, took a lot of courage.

to:

* Picard puts his ass directly on the line for a member of his crew who he'd never even met. He supports the crewman even after it's revealed that he had falsified part of his Starfleet application. In fact, he fights tooth-and-nail to keep that mistake from destroying the young petty officer's career. BenevolentBoss doesn't begin to cover it.

to:

* The fact that the Enterprise computer created an opponent capable of defeating Data, giving a holographic version of Moriarty himself sentience - and the crew still was able to defeat him. That's impressive stuff.

* This timeline's version of Tasha Yar, realising her death in the other timeline was [[DroppedABridgeOnHim pointless and empty]] chooses to request a transfer to the ''Enterprise C'' before it goes back in time, fully knowing the consequences. All because she doesn't want her death to be so meaningless this time.
** Also, there's the fact that she actually ''survives'' and spends the next several years of her life as a prisoner on Romulus, only finally being killed years later while trying to escape the colony with her daughter.

** It ''would'' have been more awesome had the supposed superweapon not epically failed to work. As TVTropes has pointed out several times, even a CurbStompBattle CAN be awesome. The looks on the crew's faces (and the viewers' at home) when the Borg completely NoSell their alleged superweapon was priceless. Keep in mind that everyone watching it at the time was left hanging with that last awesome exchange ''for an entire summer''. It may lose the impact when the cliffhanger's resolved on the next DVD you popped in, but at the time that was pretty much the greatest season finale ever put to screen that didn't involve [[Series/{{Dallas}} JR getting shot]].

* Troi beats Data - '''Data''' - at three-dimensional chess. Holy crap!

* Even when he has amnesia and he's placed into false pretenses of a war, Picard ''still'' manages a PatrickStewartSpeech, and ultimately refuses to destroy the Lysian central command center. Being a LawfulGood is just in his blood.
-->'''Picard:''' I feel as though I've been handed a weapon, sent into a room, and told to shoot a stranger. Well, I need some moral context to justify that action! And I don't have it. I'm not content simply to [[JustFollowingOrders obey orders.]] I need to know that what I am doing is right!
