* NoSell: Borg Assimilation doesn't work on Cybermen. Conversely Cyber conversion seems to work fine on the Borg. This could be an example of FridgeBrilliance - Borg assimilation involves injecting nanobots into the victim, who start "Borgifying" them from the inside out. Cybermen contain little-to-no remaining organic tissue, and so cannot be "Borgified".

* AnotherDimension: Hinted at twice in the second issue. The Doctor, who claims to know every star and planet out there, identifies Worf as a Klingon, but then informs Amy and Rory that until seeing him [[RippleEffectProofMemory he'd never heard of a Klingon before.]] Later, when Picard receives the DistressCall from Delta IV, the Doctor [[LampshadeHanging reminds us of his familiarity with the whole of the universe]] and then states he's never heard of Delta IV. Guinan confirms the multi-dimensional nature of the conflict in Issue 5, explaining that part of what makes the Cybermen so dangerous is their awareness of and existence in multiple dimensions, and how assimilating the Borg and their resources would make them powerful enough to expand across and take over all of reality.

* TheAssimilator: Both the Borg and the Cybermen, as per usual. Now working in tandem.
* BadFuture: The Doctor uses the TARDIS to show Picard one in which the Cybermen succeed in assimilating the entire universe, in order to fully drive home the severity of the situation and persuade him to accept the Borg's help in stopping them.

* BlatantLies: Amy accuses The Doctor of this after he tells Picard and the ''Enterprise'' crew that crossing their own timeline to visit the Battle of Wolf 359 is a huge mistake.
* BorrowedCatchphrase: The series kicks off with a Cyberman using the Borg phrase, '''"Resistance is futile."''' Though it was the Cybermen who [[OlderThanTheyThink said that first]].
* CasualDangerDialogue: The Doctor is in top form in Issue 1, as he discusses the potential for various injuries while on a chariot.
* CatchPhrase: An oldie but goodie shows up in the third issue, when the 4th Doctor asks "Would you like a Jelly Baby?"
* ChekhovsGun: Or Chekhov's Planet in this case -- Naia VII.

* EnemyMine: In the face of total Cybermen domination, the Doctor makes it clear that the only way to survive is for he and the ''Enterprise'' crew to temporarily ally themselves with the Borg -- a decision that Picard is obviously ''not'' happy with, given the torture he previously endured at the Borg's hands.

* {{Flashback}}: The Doctor has one in the third issue, to his days as [[TheNthDoctor the 4th Doctor]], meeting [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries Captain James T. Kirk.]] Somewhat subverted in that The Doctor says that he [[RippleEffectProofMemory also remembers that incident NOT happening.]]

* RippleEffectProofMemory: The Doctor demonstrates this ability in the second issue, but with a variation: he states he actually ''feels'' his memories changing, and says he didn't know what a Klingon was until he laid eyes on Lt. Worf. Later on, he notes that if his memories are changing, then they're in even worse trouble than he initially thought. Because of all this, Picard takes him to meet another time-sensitive alien with Ripple-Effect-Proof Memory: Guinan. See also SequelHook.

* SingleBiomePlanet: Naia VII seems to be an ocean world.
* TeleportersAndTransporters: The Doctor is amazed at the teleporters. (Probably unlike the Transmats, they can teleport more than three people at the same time.)
* WackyWaysideTribe: Issue 1 starts out with the Borg/Cybermen invasion of Delta IV, followed by the Doctor, Amy, and Rory capturing a fugitive alien in ancient Egypt before landing on the ''Enterprise'''s holodeck during a Dixon Hill program.
* WhatHaveIBecome: Inverted. [[RidiculouslyHumanRobots Data]] explains at the beginning of issue two to Geordi that this is the reason he doesn't upgrade his hardware, as he would wonder, over time, how much of him was left in a reinvented self.
* WhatTheHellHero: Riker has this reaction to The Doctor after he encounters an old friend of his who was assimilated by The Borg.
