* ContinuityLockout: Worf's presence on the ''Defiant'' at the beginning of the film is not explained and doesn't make sense unless you're aware Michael Dorn had joined the cast of [=DS9=].

* ContinuityLockout: Worf's presence on the ''Defiant'' at the beginning of the film is not explained and doesn't make sense unless you're aware Michael Dorn had joined the cast of [=DS9=]. This would have been solved with a scene where Benjamin Sisko would tell Worf to take the ''Defiant'' and battle the Borg, but the scene was cut.

* FunnyBackgroundEvent: Well, not "funny" in the slightest, but watch when the Borg cube goes up. One of the Starfleet ships doesn't ''quite'' manage to get out of the blast radius. Poor souls.

** When Picard is using a holographic tommy-gun to fill a couple of Borg with holographic lead, most of the holodeck program's [[NonPlayerCharacter NPCs]] are running for cover... except for Nicky "The Nose", who's still sitting at his table, calmly smoking his cigar.

* ScreamingWarrior: When Picard empties a [[strike:clip]] classic "tommygun" drum magazine into two Borg drones. Lily notices that Picard is a little ''too'' bloodthirsty, and even continues to hold the trigger down ''after'' the magazine empties.

* MeaningfulBackgroundEvent: When Lily is following Picard through the ''Enterprise'' and she's asking questions about the future, Picard mentions at one point that money no longer exists in his time and that people instead work for the betterment of humanity as a whole, comparing it to the work she and Cochran did on building the ''Phoenix''. Unseen by Picard, Lily gives him a rather perplexed look behind his back. [[spoiler:Later, Cochran admits to Riker that he only built the Phoenix so he could get rich from selling warp-travel technology.]]

** Reg Barclay, ''Enterprise's'' own resident BunnyEarsLawyer, also has a small cameo as part of the engineering team helping to fix the damaged ''Phoenix''. In between showing Geordi the makeshift plasma conduit he managed to rig together out of bits of spare junk, he also geeks out over meeting Cochrane.

* FakeDefector: [[spoiler:Data is seduced by the Borg Queen with the promise of becoming more human by having human skin grafted onto his body and serving as her consort. He pretends to join them by deactivating the Enterprise's self-destruct and firing at the ''Phoenix'', before killing the Borg Queen and defeating the Borg single-handedly. Data notes that he actually considered the offer for 0.68 seconds -- for an android like him, that is almost an eternity.]]

*** Doctor Crusher's mention of the Borg coming from the Delta Quadrant is a hint that the Voyager crew would be encountering them in the future.

* PaletteSwap: The Starfleet uniforms seen here are an inversion of the uniforms worn on ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' and ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'', being predominantly black with grey shoulders and colored shirts, unlike [=DS9=]/Voyager's uniforms which had gray shirts and colored shoulders. The [=DS9=] crew would shortly switch to these uniforms for the rest of the series, whereas Voyager's crew, stuck in the Delta Quadrant, stuck with their uniforms till the end, though subsequent episodes involving the Federation at home featured these uniforms.

** When the ''Enterprise'' arrives at Earth to help fight off the Borg, Commander Riker mentions that Admiral Hayes' flagship has been destroyed. It's not made clear whether Hayes himself was killed, and it wouldn't be until a later episode of Voyager revealed he survived.

** One of the ships in the Fleet vs. the Borg was the ''Bozeman'' from the television episode "Cause and Effect." They even brought back Creator/KelseyGrammer -- who played the Captain of the Bozeman in that episode -- to voice the Bozeman's acknowledgement of attack orders.
** When the Borg Queen asks Data when the last time he had sexual intercourse was, his answer (including Data's comment that's he's "fully functional" and "programmed in multiple techniques") dates back to [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration TNG]]'s second episode "The Naked Now." (On a side note, this means that he never had sex with Jenna D'Sora in the episode "In Theory.")
** The holonovel Picard runs in order to access a Tommy Gun is ''The Big Goodbye''. This callback is especially apt as the plot of that episode is not only the first ever {{Holodeck}} malfunction, but also features a character being maimed with a holographic gun. In this case, the safeties were deliberately turned off to achieve the same effect.

** Data rapidly encrypts the Enterprise systems, just like he did in the TNG episode "Brothers".
* TheCameo: [[Series/StarTrekVoyager Robert Picardo]] as the ''Enterprise''-E EMH and Ethan Phillips along with producer Brannon Braga in the holodeck club scene, with Phillips being the one stopping the drones and being disrupted by Borg laser scanners. Dwight Schultz as recurring character Reginald Barclay also appears. Michael Zaslow, who played Franchise/StarTrek's first ever RedShirt, appears as Eddie the bartender. The ''[[StarWars Millennium Falcon]]'' can (just barely) be seen zipping around the battle with the Borg cube. And as noted above, Creator/KelseyGrammar voices the captain of the ''Bozeman'', a part of the assembled fleet.
