* GenreSavvy: As Worf and Ezri quickly learn, the Breen do ''not'' screw about with prisoners. Try to bust the door open? Won't work. Fake an illness? Won't work, and even then Breen never just send one guard in at a time. On occasion, they'll even go as far as to hang prisoners from the ceiling by their feet.

* KangarooCourt: Court proceedings work in reverse on Cardassia. Sentencing is determined from the start, and then a sham trial is conducted on live TV for the purposes of celebrating "the wisdom of the state". The most illustrious defense attorney on Cardassia has a win/loss record like [[PunchOut Glass Joe's]].

* YourNormalIsOurTaboo: Joined Trill are forbidden to marry someone they were married to in a previous life. This is done in order to prevent "an [[SmugSuper aristocracy of the joined]]", according to René Echevarria. WordOfGod is that the episode delving into this particular taboo was written specifically so the two current hosts were [[LesYay both female]], allowing audiences in the 1990s to identify with an otherwise comploetely alien custom.

Added DiffLines:

*AlienHair: Most Nausicaans tend to have long, occasionally braided hair rather closely resembling styles worn by HairMetal bands.
*AlwaysChaoticEvil
*TheBrute
*CombatPragmatist: Nausicaans have no problem with cheating or fighting dirty.

*EvilSoundsDeep
*Gonk: Demonstrated quite clearly in the above image.
*HairTriggerTemper: It doesn't take much to make a Nausicaan mad.
*InTheBack: As a young [[spoiler: Captain Picard]] found out, the Nausicaans have no problems doing this during a fight.

*SpacePirates: One of the most prevalent examples of such in the franchise, especially in [[StarTrekEnterprise ''Enterprise'']].
*TheBully: Their general nature.
*TrashTalk: Tends to come with the species' boorish nature.

** According to Odo, the Ferengi abhor collaboratos. He explicitly claims that they won't sell out their world for profit.

* FridgeLogic: Invoked by Ishka in her bid for equal rights for Ferengi women. A culture which focuses so heavily on profit, yet which doesn't allow an entire half of its population to participate in the generation of it, makes no sense.



* RuleNumberOne / ScoundrelCode: The Rules of Acquisition, which range from harsh ("A Ferengi without profit [[NoTrueScotsman is no Ferengi at all.]]") to pragmatic ("You can't make a deal if you're dead.") to PetTheDog ("Good customers are as rare as latinum. Treasure them.")

** StupidCrooks: Said pirates frequently prove to be no better at crime than they were at mercantile pursuits.



* StrawCharacter: Straw Capitalists to be precise. While later series rounded them off, their "hat" remained firmly in place.

** Turned on it's head a little though, if Quark can be trusted, in that while Ferengi are greedy as a virtue and sexist/xenophobic as a culture, they've also never taken it to the same extreme that humans have, citing that the Ferengi never had concentration camps, slavery or massive-scale warfare.
