** The [[GreatWhiteHunter Hirogen]] and [[StupidEvil Kazon]] are both less a single group than a conglomeration of clans, and fight on all sides of the war ([[TakeAThirdOption including no side at all]]). Some remain enemies, while others are solidly in the Alliance's camp. [[spoiler:This is a plot point in "Takedown": two Kazon clans under [TooDumbToLive Sessen]] break away from the Alliance fight with the Vaadwaur, while the maje of the Kazon-Ogla brings in his own group to make up for Sessen's group of clans turning on the player. Meanwhile Harry Kim calls in some allied Hirogen to deal with Sessen and the Vaads.]]

* LoveMakesYouEvil: [[spoiler:Learning of his wife and unborn child makes him desperate to get them back.]] It's a pretty shallow excuse, as he was already a selfish jerk and [[spoiler:the alternate Noye literally ''never knew'' said wife and thus had no emotional connection to her or reason to want her back.]]

* IncompetenceInc: Daniels's incompetence leads to an entire planet dying in the first episode of the "Yesterday's War" arc. Things go downhill from there.



* MisBlamed: They blame the Federation for their homeworld's death when [[spoiler:A Federation or Federation-allied ship nearly died trying to SAVE them!]]



* [[spoiler:LargeHam]]: [[spoiler:Undine!Cooper does love to rant about how great he is...]]



* LargeHam: A bit more subdued than Leeta or Hakeev, but still...!
* LoveMakesYouEvil: [[spoiler:Learning of his wife and unborn child makes him desperate to get them back.]]

to:

* ItsAllAboutMe: Noye is willing to [[spoiler:wipe out species and planets to get one woman back, and allies with species that murder entire UNIVERSES. And yet [[{{Hypocrite}} he calls the Federation evil]]...]]
* LargeHam: A bit more subdued than Leeta or Hakeev, but still...!
! FridgeBrilliance in this case; he's had to turn to ''something'' to recover from his wife's death, and it just happened to be ham.

Added DiffLines:

* LargeHam: Dear lord, the Iconians love their melodrama. The first one we see vapes the entire Klingon High Council for no apparent reason while essentially daring the players to challenge them, and the ham only gets bigger from there.


Added DiffLines:

* StupidEvil: While the Heralds have some pretty effective AI, the Iconians themselves don't seem to use any tactics other than brute force, and even the Heralds are easy to fight once you get used to them.


Added DiffLines:

* TooDumbToLive: [[spoiler:Continues to attack someone who's shrugged off literally everything the Iconians have thrown at them, who's rampaging through the Iconian ship, and is shutting down the power cores that she needs to survive with her cool powers. She does this ''repeatedly'', getting increasingly weaker each time, until she dies of ''exhaustion''.]]


Added DiffLines:

* LargeHam: That insect line...

* BetterToDieThanBeKilled: The first Elachi captured by the protagonists commits suicide rather than answer ''any'' of their questions and without even saying anything.

[[folder:The Lukari]]

!The Lukari (as a group)

A newly warp-capable species from an previously-unexplored system in the Alpha Quadrant.

* {{Expy}}: Of humanity as they were depicted in ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'', complete with the maiden voyage of their first exploratory starship.
* HomeworldEvacuation: They originated on another planet, but were forced to evacuate and settle on their current homeworld (a moon) for an undisclosed reason.
* NaiveNewcomer: They've only ever had intermittent contact with the Ferengi and the Tzenkethi, so they're somewhat overwhelmed when the Tholians suddenly attempt to destroy their sun and drag them into the Temporal Cold War.

!Administrator/Captain Kuumaarke
-->'''Played By:''' Creator/KipleighBrown

A scientist tasked with figuring out why the Lukari sun is dying, and finding a way to fix it. She is eventually assigned to command the first Lukari exploratory vessel, L.S.S. ''Concordium''.

* BoldExplorer: She's given command of the ''Concordium'' in "Echoes of Light", and leads an expedition to the unexplored system 20 Draconis.
* OmnidisciplinaryScientist
* TheXenophile: She quickly becomes this over the course of her mission, and is particularly fascinated by the {{Space Whale}}s she encounters along the way.

Added DiffLines:

* PowerFloats: The Iconians that survived the bombardment of their home world gained this ability; in addition to their phenomenal powers, they also levitate themselves several feet above the ground (something of a necessity for L'Miren, seeing as she [[spoiler: lost her legs to Sela's disruptor]]).


Added DiffLines:

* PutOnABus: We never see her again after the conclusion of the Iconian War, despite her vow to continue her vendetta regardless of the other Iconians' cessation of hostilities.

* IDidWhatIHadToDo: Sometimes saving the timeline means doing things that, honestly, they don't want to. Case in point, in the Tier II Transmission, you find out that one Commander Nereda is forced to aid the Obsidian Order on her homeworld of Cardassia Prime in stopping a bombing by a dissident group. Doing so ended up preventing a peaceful democratic Cardassian government from forming and[[spoiler:saved a young Dukat's life.]]

* PoliceAreUseless: The TDI {{NPC}}s are, to a man, completely and utterly incompetent at anything to do with their job descriptions and consistently need to be bailed out by the present-day protagonists who, per the Temporal Prime Directive, '''shouldn't have been allowed to become involved to begin with'''. On at least two occasions, major TDI personnel drop their temporal beacon with their reports on them, only for said reports to be picked up by a native resident of that time period ( [[spoiler: Scotty & Garak, to be precise]] ) and have a habit of showing up ''late'' to temporal distress calls or timeline alterations. See also the obvious method to foil Noye stealing the ''Annorax'' that they completely and utterly failed to spot: going back in time to before he stole it to disable the now-PointlessDoomsdayDevice.
