* RubberForeheadAliens: They are not an example of these at all.

* RubberForeheadAliens: They are not an example of these at all.HumanoidAliens: The Tzenkethi only got two mentions in ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' and never appeared in person. Rather than use the RubberForeheadAliens from ''Literature/StarTrekTyphonPact'', Cryptic artist Hector Ortiz designed them based on "[[Recap/StarTrekDeepSpaceNineS03E26TheAdversary The Adversary]]" screenwriter Robert Hewitt Wolfe's statement envisioning them as "heavily armored lizard things". They're reptilian and roughly humanoid, but with four arms and a long, hunched neck.

* FantasticRacism: They're not too keen on "mammals". Non-mammals they can accept as ''almost'' equals.
** They do have exceptions. The Voth [[spoiler: are allied with the Turei, an exothermic race, because they're better at dealing with mammalian politics, which shows some awareness of their stupidity.]]

* InternalRetcon: By this point, the higher ups sure as hell know that they're not the first species and they're doing their damnedest to keep their version of the truth as the truth. [[spoiler:One Voth scientist has realized that this is going to destroy everyone because of the Iconians.]]

* MightyGlacier: Vaadwaur ships are big and slow by game standards, but are heavily armed and can throw up force fields that render them invulnerable in specific directions for a few seconds (the bigger ones reflect incoming fire back at the attacker). This went a long way to reducing the dominance of escorts in the metagame.



* PaperTiger: Despite their millions of years of existence and enormous technologically advanced ships, the Alpha Quadrant nations, [[spoiler:Undine]], and Vaadwaur rip them up in space and they're barely holding off the Borg. By the midpoint of ''Delta Rising'''s main story arc they're clearly on the back foot and [[spoiler:don't even respond to their Turei allies' SOS when the Vaadwaur launch a second invasion of Turei Prime]].



* TooDumbToLive: [[spoiler:The Tier 4 Dyson cutscene is proving more and more that they have absolutely no idea what they're doing with the Omega particles and those like Nelan below realize that they're heading towards something dangerous. They want to use Omega Particles to obliterate subspace for the express purpose to defeating whoever they're fighting! They don't care if they're forever isolated or worse, isolating other races - they've entered a SuicidalCosmicTemperTantrum and they're [[TakingYouWithMe taking everyone with them]] just to have their victory.]]

* NeverMyFault: When you attempt to broker peace with the Vaadwaur, he promptly throws a fit when you refuse to outright joins you, [[spoiler:''kills the Talaxians at the asteroid base they were at'']], then blames you for laying a trap.

* HomeworldEvacuation: They originated on another planet, Kentar, but were forced to evacuate and settle on their current homeworld due to conflicts with the dominant Kentari culture (the Lukari are named so because they followed the teachings of the scholar Lukar). [[spoiler: Kentar was later rendered uninhabitable by internal conflict after the Lukari had lost contact, so the Lukari may be the last Kentari.]]

* ApocalypticLog: [[spoiler:In "Survivor", the player character discovers that Tasha didn't actually die in Romulan captivity, but lived for many more years in an abandoned Tal Shiar prison. The datapads you pick up and recharge tell the story of the remains of the ''Enterprise''-C crew's last days as they died from old age, wildlife and temporal anomalies caused by the "Temporal Ambassador" version of Admiral T'Nae. She is the last person to die, requesting to T'Nae to tell the story of the ''Enterprise'' crew and to tell Sela that she loves her.]]



* BusCrash[=/=]ChildByRape[=/=]MadeASlave[=/=]SexSlave: Yeah, her attempt to have a meaningful death? Doesn't go as planned. As those familiar with ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' should know, the ''Enterprise''-C is captured by a Romulan general, who forces Tasha to become his mistress in exchange for everyone else's lives, fathers Sela on her, then has her shot when she tries to escape with her daughter.

* MisBlamed: InUniverse. He blames the Federation for the loss of his wife and child, but it's unknown if he knows ''why'' they're gone outside of the fact that it involved the Federation
** MoralMyopia: [[spoiler:He blames the Federation for having a cavalier attitude towards temporal manipulation, when he himself was a vocal proponent of using the ''Annorax'' even after its incursion failed.]]

* WholePlotReference: Their origin story is strikingly similar to that of the Romulans, although the roles are somewhat inverted: the Romulans fled the peaceful Vulcan society because they did not want to give up the emotions that almost destroyed their civilization; the Lukari, by contrast, are [[DefectorFromDecadence Defectors From Decadence]] who wanted to get away from the self-destructive tendencies of the Kentari and start anew somewhere else.

else[[note]]This is actually the ''second'' time the game has referenced the Romulan origin story with something of an inversion of the roles, although the Caitian/Ferasan backstory is relegated to a doff chain and is intentionally or not based on secondary materials published around the time of ''TAS'' regarding the Caitians/Kzinti[[/note]].
